Sharon Osbourne is throwing a $270,000 (GBP150,000) New Year's Eve
(31DEC04) party for everyone special in her life - including her cleaners.
The rock matriarch plans to host the lavish bash at the London home she
shares with her husband Ozzy, and has ensured all her staff are included in the
Osbourne, 51, says, "We think it's important to include family and friends
- and most of my staff fall into that bracket. Everybody deserves some kind of
reward for their hard work.
"Even the bin men get along with Ozzy and me."
However, not everyone has been invited to the end of year get-together.
Osbourne jokes, "It's just as well Simon Cowell isn't going to be in the
country because he wouldn't be invited."
