OZZY OSBOURNE: Hearing About Wife's Cancer Was Like Pushing Button On Atomic Bomb In My Head

"When I first heard my wife had colon cancer, it was like somebody pushing a button on an atomic bomb in my head," OZZY OSBOURNE told Fox News in a two-part interview airing tonight at 9:00 PM on Fox's The Pulse and on Friday at 10:00 PM on Fox News Channel's On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.

"I'm not good at hearing that kind of news," said Ozzy. "I'm falling apart more than she is, and people say to me, 'Ozzy, you've got to be strong for Sharon.' I'm not Superman.

"I know she's gonna be all right," he added. "But, there's a little bad demon in my head going, 'No she's not.' I did nothing but cry for about two or three weeks. I think I've accepted it. [But] shares in Kleenex must have gone up tenfold."

In the same interview, Osbourne confessed to being a Frank Sinatra fan — much to the dismay of his teenage children.

"Believe it or not, Ozzy Osbourne is beginning to like Frank Sinatra. So that's a sign of my age," Ozzy joked. "It wasn't hip or anything when I was younger to like Frank Sinatra. His body of his work, is so vast - he must have made a record every day . . . my kids come to me and go 'Hey, you're weird, Dad. You only listen to dead people.' "

In related news, Don Arden, the music mogul father of Sharon Osbourne, is hoping to cash in on the success of the Osbournes' MTV show, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

While his daughter wages a fight against colon cancer, he's shopping a tell-all book about her and himself. US weekly says that Arden's memoir, Mr. Big, describes him giving his daughter management of Ozzy Osbourne as a wedding present.

When he and Sharon fought — over money, of course — he says she tried to run him over in her car.

"Estranged for 20 years, they patched things up after September 11," the magazine reports.
