According to a report first squawked by one of the The Sun’s many gossip crows, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne’s 30-year marriage is splintering apart faster than Ozzy’s pulverized kneecaps. Getting old, it seems, doesn’t get any easier if you somehow become famous.


After selling their Malibu home for $7.25 million last April, the Osbournes are now reportedly separated, with Ozzy living in a rented mansion and Sharon filling the hole in her aching heart with hotel room service while she waits for renovations on her new Beverly Hills home to be completed. The Osbournes have been one of showbiz’s most enduring pairs, but time has a way of eroding even the strongest of emotional bulwarks. The good news? Ozzy can spend more time in his aviary, terrorizing his captive carrier pigeons, and Sharon can join another talent show panel because when a window closes, a door opens, and that door leads into a funhouse hall of mirrors filled with grotesque American sideshow acts.

When you said that Billy Zane's career had been done in by premature baldness, I was like shave your head and go full Yul Brynner. Then I clicked the link and saw that he did pretty much exactly that. It's easy advice to give, and I admire the effort, but dammit, there really is only one Yul Brynner.
