Sharon Osbourne

Reality TV personality Sharon osbourne employs a full-time nanny to look after her 12 dogs.

The 59-year-old star has a dozen pooches to keep her and rocker husband ozzy osbourne company now that their kids, Aimee (28), Kelly (27), and 26-year-old Jack, have left home, but she needs help to care for her canines.

“I’m solo. It’s why I adore my family so much – and animals. They’re great company,” she says.

“I’m their hotel – I even babysit my friends’ pets I have a full-time nanny to care for them. Bella, a five pound Pomeranian, is my favourite.”

The canine nanny looks after the reality TV star’s dogs when Sharon is hosting daytime chat show The Talk. The outspoken star famously doesn’t hold back while fronting the programme, but isn’t afraid to own up to her mistakes.

“Do things correctly or I turn into an axe murderer,” Sharon says.

“I’m not quiet – but I’m 59, I’ve earned that right – and I have no compunction if situations get out of order… None of us is perfect. If I’ve gone too far I’ll apologise graciously, which you need to do – especially at my age,” she says.
