Ozzy Osbourne admitted he’s nervous for his family’s big to return to TV. Following the massive success 20 years ago of the MTV hit The Osbournes, the clan will be featured once again in the upcoming ten-part 30-minute BBC reality series, Home To Roost, which focuses on the family’s move back to Britain. The new series will also air on BBC One and iPlayer.
During a chat with The Mirror, Ozzy said, “I don’t know how The Kardashians have done it for so long — it sent us crazy at the end.I am not sorry I did it, but after three or four years I said, ‘Do you know what, we’re going to lose somebody because it is getting too crazy.’ There is rock n’ roll fame, which is pretty intense, but that Osbourne level was just unbelievable. The kids paid for it. They all ended up doing drugs. Jack got clean and sober on that show, Kelly messed up on that show, I was messed up and Sharon got cancer.”
On his SiriusXM show Ozzy went on to say, “I always wanted to know what it would have been like when Beatlemania was around. I had that with The Osbournes, let me tell you. I remember going into McDonald’s for a pee. When I came out of the bathroom the whole restaurant was outside screaming at me.”
Ozzy told us a while back that he has never felt comfortable seeing himself on television: “I gotta be honest, I’m not really keen on TV. I mean, I must have watched, like, two episodes of The Osbournes. I just don’t like watching myself on TV, I feel geeky.”
