After skipping out on Monday's broadcast of the CBS-TV daytime series The Talk, Sharon returned to the panel on Tuesday and offered viewers an update on the situation.
Asked if it was true that she had kicked Ozzy out or just a rumour, Sharon said, "No, it's true!", adding "I honestly, at this point today, have no idea what I'm doing with the rest of my life. I need time to think. I really want to think about it very carefully. I'm 63 years of age and I can't keep living like this."
She further revealed that Ozzy had returned to the family home, saying, "No, he's back, and I'm out of the house." She added, "I spoke to him last night. I'm not with him, but I speak with him. I love Ozzy dearly, he's given me an unbelievable life and three gorgeous children."
Asked if she thought that her marriage to Ozzy was over, she replied "At this point I can't answer that.. I don't know what I want. I'm doing great, I really really am. I honestly, honestly can't thank people enough for their backing me, for sending me messages of love. I am empowered and I have found this inner strength and I'm like, 'right, ok, what's next.' I can handle this." Read more and watch the video footagehere.
A member of the crowd told Cross: "Some guys just got into a fight in front of us and the one guy bit off the other guy's ear. I am not joking - it was the most f***ed up thing I have ever seen."

Simmons told Newsweek, "I think Prince was heads, hands and feet above all the rest of them. I thought he left [Michael] Jackson in the dust. Prince was way beyond that.
"But how pathetic that he killed himself. Don't kid yourself, that's what he did. Slowly, I'll grant you, but that's what drugs and alcohol is: a slow death."
He added, 'The one question I have is: When we all start out and we have these big dreams and you finally get your wish--you have more money than God and fame--what is that insane gene in us, well, a lot of us, that makes us want to succumb to the cliche of cliches: drugs and alcohol?"
Gene's bandmate Paul Stanley was the first to take to social media to address the controversy. He tweeted, "Embarrassed by cold clueless statements re Prince's death. Without all the facts better to say nothing. My apologies."
Gene later took to Twitter to offer his own apology for the comments, "I just got such s*** from my family for my big mouth again. I apologize - I have a long history of getting very angry at what drugs do to the families/friends of the addicts. I get angry at drug users because of my experience being around them coming up in the rock scene. In my experience they've made my life, and the lives of their loved ones, difficult.
"I was raised in a culture/crowd where drug addicts were written off as losers, and since that's the narrative I grew up with, it's been hard to change with the times. Needless to say, I didn't express myself properly here - I don't shy away from controversy, and angry critics really don't bother me at all. If I think I'm right, I'll throw up a finger and dig my heels in and laugh. But this time, I was not. So, my apologies."
He added the following post-script, "What I will say is that there is a part of this that is journalists quote-mining things I've said in the past and applying it to new situations. This, too, happens often and not just to me. So, quote-mining, too, is wrong. It doesn't make my past quotes any more tactful, but still - be wary of click bait. The uglier they can make it seem, the more views they can get."
It's a response to a post on YouTube's Creator Blog called Setting The Record Straight, which addressed recent comments by Sixx AM, Metallica manager Peter Mensch and others that YouTube was mistreating artists.
Azoff says YouTube's policy of not allowing artists to opt out of appearing on the site is unfair. YouTube uses the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to justify its stance, meaning artists have to send YouTube a notice every time one of their songs is uploaded by a different user - a situation Azoff says is "impossible" to stay on top of.
He says: "If YouTube cares about copyright management then join the music business in its efforts to reform the DMCA. Or, better yet, you could really prove your love for music by not allowing music on to YouTube unless you ask the creators of that song for permission.
"I know realistically you won't voluntarily agree to take on the task of asking artists for their permission. So, if you are going to continue to force artists to notify you when an infringing song is on YouTube, once an artist tells you that she wants her song taken off YouTube, you should keep it off. When the artist sends a 'take down,' it should be a 'stay down.'" Read morehere.

Now Churko has said in a statement: "Prospect Park claims that if Five Finger Death Punch were to hire a different producer, they could sell well over a million records, maybe even two million.
"Honestly, there hasn't been a record in the hard rock genre that has achieved anywhere close to those sales in a two-year period of time. With 5FDP, I have the privilege of working with gifted and prolific songwriters, whose singer, Ivan Moody, has a truly special and distinctive voice.
"Not only have they sold over four million records at a time when general album sales are diminishing - 5FDP have created a solid brand and raised thousands of dollars for veteran charities." Read morehere.
