Ozzy Osbourne was stoned while filming TV show
The Daily Record is reporting that rock survivor Ozzy Osbourne has admitted he was wasted during all the three years of filming his reality television show.
In The Osbournes, which featured wife Sharon and two of his kids, Jack and Kelly, the former hell-raiser would often be seen running on a treadmill and getting fit.
But he says it was all a charade. Once the cameras stopped rolling, Ozzy, 60, supposedly a recovering alcoholic, would go to a room and get stoned.
Sharon said: "As Ozzy will tell you, the three years that we were filming, Ozzy was stoned the whole time. He wasn't sober for one day."
Ozzy revealed: "When the filming ended, I'd go in my little bunker and smoke a pipe and drink about a case of beer every day.
"I'd give myself some goodness and get up early in the morning and go jogging for six miles."
Ozzy admits he can't watch the show - because it's obvious by his body language in front of camera that he didn't know what time of day it was.
He admitted: "I used to do a lot of prescription drugs as well."
The show ran from 2002 until 2005 and also saw Ozzy, who is now sober, nearly killed in a quad-bike accident.
Huge riches and fame also had a downside, with kids Kelly, 24, and Jack, 23, both going into rehab.
