SHARON OSBOURNE has furiously hit back at American Senator BOB DOLE, after
he criticised her son JACK during his stint in rehab.
Jack, 17, went into a rehab clinic earlier this year (03) after giving in
to the temptations of drugs and alcohol.
And during his recovery time, Jack happened to tune into news show 60
MINUTES, where he listened to Dole say, "Does Hollywood still think OZZY
OSBOURNE is funny now that he's shipped his underage son off to rehab? America
is awash in reality TV
and the reality is, it's debasing and degrading."
And on her new show THE SHARON OSBOURNE SHOW, the rock matriarch took the
opportunity to hit back at Dole today (18SEP03) during a special episode about
She said, "With much respect to Senator Dole for all the good he's done
for this country while he's been in office. When it comes to addiction I do
think that Senator Dole is somewhat ignorant and I don't think that he
understands the world as
it is today for teenagers.
"Senator Dole, you're 80 years of age, which is magnificent, I applaud
you. But how can you possibly understand what is happening in the world today
as far as teenagers, especially in this country?
"Addiction has no boundaries. It doesn't matter - rich, poor, black,
white, what religion you are, whether you are on a reality TV show in Hollywood
But Jack, who appeared on the show to talk about his past problems, took
the attack to another level, when he commented to his mother, "You said Bob
Dole's done stuff? The only thing he's ever done is endorse Viagra."
As the audience cheered, Sharon rapidly responded, "Jack, aren't the
Osbournes in enough trouble already? We don't need anymore. Please!"
