OZZY OSBOURNE Embarrasses Second Lady, Actress GLENN CLOSE

According to Drudge Report, Vice President Dick Cheney's wife Lynne Cheney told associates she was "embarrassed" by the commotion surrounding Ozzy Osbourne's appearance at this weekend's White House Correspondence Dinner in Washington.

"He's hardly someone we should be applauding... not a role model, I am rather embarrassed," Cheney reportedly said after the dinner, according to sources cited by Drudge Report.

Cheney has been an outspoken critic of rock and rap lyrics marketed to youth, having previously taken on rapper EMINEM by calling his music "the most extreme example of rock lyrics used to demean women, rock lyrics used to advocate violence against women."

In other Ozzy-related "news", the following item was published in today's edition of The New York Post:

Glenn Close will never forget her introduction to Ozzy Osbourne at the White House Correspondents Dinner. The star of Fatal Attraction and Dangerous Liaisons has a cast on her right arm, having broken her wrist in a horse-riding mishap. Upon learning that Close was being treated with the powerful painkiller Percoset, "Ozzy offered to buy some off me," the actress revealed. The heavy-metal patriarch - who has found new life appearing with his family on MTV in The Osbournes - was easily the most incongruous of the 2,500 guests at the Washington Hilton on Saturday night. The crowd also included Secretary of State Colin Powell, Gen. Tommy Franks, who's running the military operation in Afghanistan, as well as Raquel Welch, Shannen Doherty and covergirl Josie Maran. The only bigger star was Harrison Ford, who was surrounded by women wanting to have their picture taken with the leading man. Ford and Osbourne finally met up afterward at the lavish party thrown by Bloomberg News and exchanged some words. Asked, "Were you able to understand anything he said?" Ford paused and joked, "You mean the president?"

Also on the Osbourne front, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne will hold their first online chat with fans today, May 7th at 7:30 PM EST/4:30 PM PST at this location.
