Off the Record: The Osbournes


Withholding good information is not our strong suit. Here’s something we’re not supposed to tell you about “Ozzy and Sharon,” our June Encounter.

When Betty White turned down our offer to be June’s Encounter subject because of her hectic schedule, we got Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne instead. The actress-comedian is clearly having a moment, popping up everwhere from the blogosphere to Oprah to Saturday Night Live to Hot in Cleveland, her new sitcom that premieres this Wednesday on TV Land. “We would love to do this,” White’s rep told us, “but frankly we’re just too overwhelmed by all the attention.”
