According to "Wonderwall, on Thursday Jan. 17, the Osbourne home almost went up in smoke. A candle that Sharon had left burning all night in their living room blow-up and caused a small fire. Both of the Osbournes made the fire worse, Sharon by putting water on an oil fire and Ozzy by opening a door, adding air that strengthened the fire. Ozzy also tried to use his cast, from hand surgery he had on Jan. 16 while trying to put out the fire. This didn't work either.
Finally, they called the fire department who showed up and saved the day, as they usually do, God bless them.
On Sharon's talk show, "The Talk," Sharon explained the incident:
"Everybody is fine. There was only Ozzy, myself and the dogs in the house last night. At five o'clock (in the morning), I heard a noise like metal had fallen. I thought it was my housekeeper coming in and she had dropped her keys on the tiles, that's what it sounded like, so I didn't pay any attention. A few minutes later, my eyes are stinging and my throat's closing up, (I thought) 'Something's weird smelling in here.'"
She went on to reveal:
"Then my dog started to bark. I go downstairs and the whole living room (was on fire). The candle had burst and the cracking sound was the glass and the candle exploding. ... My husband had an operation on his hand yesterday, so he's in a complete cast. ... He comes down and goes, 'Oh the fire, the fire,' (and tries to put it out) with his hand in the cast. Then, he opens the French doors and I go into the kitchen and throw water on it, and it erupted. ... Ozzy's front of his hair from (his ear down is), gone! His eyebrows (are gone). ... He's got like, skinned cheeks. We are, like, two idiots -- it was like 'The Three Stooges.' ... Everything you are not meant to do -- go to bed with candles alight, open the doors and put water on -- we did it all."
Ozzy's hair will surly grow back and Sharon won't be burning candles any time soon. The Dark Prince and his beloved Sharon has had problems with their marriage in the past. It's nice to see they can pull together, even if it's to burn their living room down.
The rock star who use to bit the heads off doves during business meetings has certainly been tamed by his better half, now if he can just get her to remember small matters like blowing out a candle.
At least both Ozzy and Sharon are still with us, not much worse for the wear.
