Our Story

In their own words (and we all know how colorful those can be), the five members of the notorious Osbourne clan tell the amazing story of the first family of rock.

  • OZZY talks about his first beer, his legendary career,and why he's the only sane member of the Osbourne family.

  • SHARON explains the root of her shopaholic nature, the ups and downs of being married to Ozzy, and what it's like to battle cancer and host a talk show.

  • AIMEE reveals why she opted out of MTV's The Osbournes, why she thinks her mother's in denial, and why her father destroyed himself with drugs.

  • KELLY offers cutting thoughts on sibling relationships and growing up Osbourne as well as on life as a fledgling rock star.

  • JACK shares stories about life without privacy ("What's privacy?") and his stint in rehab -- and claims he's the only sane one in the family.
