Sharon Osbourne has lived - in her own words - 'fifty lives in fifty years'. As the daughter of nororious tock manager Don Arden, Sharon's childhood was a chaotic mix of glamour and violencel villains and diamonds; one week touring with Little Richard and Jayne Mansfield, the next having tea with Charlie kray. And whether they Ardens were living in Brixton or Mayfair, the baliffs were never far from the door. In her late twenties, after years of fierce loyalty to her ruthless father, Sharon finally faced up to his devastating betrayals - but her painful decision to break with her family created its own havoc, both emotionally and financially. IN rock star Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon found her soul mate, turning his career around and becoming a legeandary manager and rock promoter in her own right. Yet Ozzy's drug - and drink-fuelled excesses - which culminated in an attempt to strangle her - made their marriage a white-knuckle ride from the start; only her devotion to their three children gave her the will to survive. From the highs of The Osbournes and The X-Factor to the lows of Ozzy's near-fatal quad-bike accident and her own colon cancer, Sharon's tenacity, honesty and humour have triumphed again and again. Illustrated. 372 pp.
