Her son Jack Osbourne has just revealed he has MS and it all became a bit too much for his mom Sharon Osbourne when she tried to talk about it on TV.

The 59-year-old addressed the news on Monday’s episode of her daytime chat show “The Talk”.
“[Jack's] doing really, really good and I want to thank everyone for all their texts and goodwill and love they send to us,” she said.
Sharon’s co-hosts were clearly saddened as well, with Julie Chen choking up at Sharon’s emotional message.
Co-host Julie Chen told Sharon that Jack is ‘an amazing guy, he’s very courageous‘ and asked, ‘What else do you want say Mrs. O?’
‘Just thank you to everyone for all their good wishes,’ said Sharon, who herself battled cancer.
‘It’s been amazing … for Jack ’cause I really believe that vibes of prayer help.’
And almost chastising herself for her understandable outpouring of emotion she added: ‘And what I’m doing right now is not helping because I’m just feeling sorry for myself, and that is no good.
She continued: ‘So we just have to think positively and get on with this show that we love.’
Sharon Osbourne revealed that on Wednesday Jack will appear on The Talk to discuss his diagnosis.
The father-of-one discovered he had multiple sclerosis after losing 60 per cent of vision in his right eye, and speaking to Hello! magazine, he told of his shock at the diagnosis but said he is refusing to let it make him feel downbeat.
The former Osbournes star turned filmmaker just welcomed the birth of his first child, daughter Pearl, two months ago with fianceé Lisa Stelly.
Jack tweeted Sunday: ‘Thank you all so much for the kind and inspirational words. It means a lot’.
