Mrs. O made a shocking confession on Wednesday as part of The Talk's Secret Week as she revealed that in an effort to impress Ozzy Osbourne when they were dating, she self-harmed.
"I never discussed it out of embarrassment of how stupid I was at the time to have done such a thing for myself," she confessed to her fellow co-hosts. "I want to share this with everyone because it's a lesson learned. I learned a great lesson from this."
"I was 27, I was just going out with Ozzy at the time… and when we first got together, we would drink a lot together," she began. "We had a session of partying… and it's about 4 in the morning and he says to me, 'How much do you really love me?'…And I'm saying, 'I'd do anything for you, anything, I absolutely adore you…I'd give my life for you.'"
And so, in a dramatic and drink-fueled attempt to prove her love for her now-husband, Sharon did something she deeply regrets.
"I'm like, 'I'll show you how much I love you, I'd die for you'…so I went to a room service table… and there was a steak knife," she said. "I get the knife, and I'm like, 'I love you so much' and slash, slash, slash on my wrist.'"
EMTs ruled the situation an attempted suicide, and she had to be hospitalized, but the permanent scars and emotional impact have lasted much longer.
"I permanently scarred my wrist, and I was on lockdown for being overly dramatic and drunk …now, I tell everyone I was attacked by a dog," she confessed.
"These scars are a big embarrassment. The scars don't go away. They stay with you… It's a reminder to us all."
