Sharon Osbourne Thinks She’s “Too Gaunt” After Ozempic

Sharon Osbourne wasn’t born this way.

The Talk host admitted that she regrets a recent plastic surgery procedure, saying she looked “like a Cyclops” after getting her third facelift in October 2021.

“That was the worst thing that I ever did,” she told The Times in an interview published Dec. 15, per People. “I had one eye here and one eye there and my mouth was all skewwhiff, and then I had to wait for that to heal before I could go back and have it corrected.”  

Sharon—who also got facelifts in 1987 and 2002—said she went under the knife again because of “vanity” and “ego.” 

“‘Oh, you look great for your age,'” she recalled being told. “I know what I really look like. When I look in the mirror, I see the real me.”

But even with the undesired outcome, the 71-year-old told E! News in September that everybody “needs a tune up” every few years.

Sharon—who has been married to Ozzy Osbourne since 1982—confessed, “There’s not one part of my body I haven’t had twisted, lifted, elongated, whatever.”

“I’ve been messed up many times,” she continued. “This last one was a kind of fix-it job from the guy that did it before. I kind of looked liked Quasimodo.”

While the facelift is perhaps the operation she most regrets, the mom of three previously revealed that the most painful procedure was her vagina tightening, telling Graham Norton in 2013, “It was just excruciating.”

More recently, Sharon turned to the type 2 diabetes medication Ozempic to lose weight, but said she has since become “too gaunt” and has unintentionally dropped under 100 pounds.

“I can’t put any weight on,” she told the Daily Mail in November. “I want to, because I feel I’m too skinny. I’m under 100 pounds and I don’t want to be.”

While the manufacturer told E! News in a statement that the injectable is “not approved for chronic weight management,” more celebrities have also admitted to using the medication to try to lose weight.

“I’ve never had any work-work done, but I went through a phase when I was smoking pot when I was really obsessed with getting facial injections,” the “Born This Way” singer told radio host Howard Stern in 2013. “I was going to this strip mall in Chicago in the back…Everybody was like, ‘You are a nut job.’…I’m telling you, I wasn’t exactly in the best frame of mind, and I would smoke a bunch of joints and have some drinks and I would be like, ‘Oh, let’s go see my girl’ and we would drive to this strip mall and I would get shot up with a bunch of whatever, Juvéderm, and then leave.”

She continued, “Now all the stuff is gone. Before I shot the ‘Applause’ video, [a photographer friend] was like, ‘Gaga, I love you but if you don’t stop injecting s–t in your face I’m going to just kill you.'”

She added, “I have to live with every decision that I’ve made. And it got me to where we are today. And I’m not going to look back.”

I feel like I’m a pioneer,” she said on Today in 2013. “I was one of the first ones to ever do it and be honest about it.”She also said, “I would do it again. I never had a career before I had the lips so my lips have had their own career!”

“I really, genuinely care about looking good,” the SKKN founder told Allure for its August 2022 issue. “I probably care more than 90 percent of the people on this planet. It’s not easy when you’re a mom and you’re exhausted at the end of the day or you’re in school, and I’m all of the above. I do my beauty treatments usually late at night. After everyone’s in bed, I’m doing laser treatments.”

Kim revealed she’s also gotten “a little bit of Botox,” but hasn’t dabbled with filler on her lips or cheeks, revealing, “No filler. Never filled either one, ever.”

During an Instagram Stories Q&A on Aug. 23, the reality TV star didn’t shy away from answering a fan’s question about her boobs. “Gonna keep it real with y’all,” Kristin began her response. “Got a lift after breast feeding all 3 kids.”

While The Hills alum isn’t opposed to cosmetic procedures, she admitted she’s “never done” Botox.

“It’s not for me. But I’ve seen it look amazing on some people,” she wrote. “My concern is that we don’t know the long term effects of it (and I don’t mean 5-10 years, I mean like 20 years) and I think your face is muscle, so we need to work it out the same way we would any other muscle.”

When asked if she’s thought about going under the knife, she replied, “That would be the one thing that I would probably put off for the very last thing. The technology now for lifting, sculpting, tightening, is incredible. And there’s a machine for anything. I just got a microcurrent thing for your neck, it was called Forma and it’s like a total package facial.”

“As much as I love my implants, my body is fighting them and recognizes it as something obviously foreign in my body,” she said in an Instagram video. “As much as I loved having these, this is so important to me that I love my health more. I love my well-being more. That’s what matters.”
