Following the tragic loss of her father earlier this year, Sharon Osbourne made her own end of life plans. The Daily Mirror interviewed the “America’s Got Talent” judge about the decision she and husband Ozzy reached to choose their own ends should a mentally degenerative disease afflict either of them.
“I saw my father suffer from the day he came back into my life in 2002 to the day he died in July. There's no way I could go through what he did, or put my kids through that,” Sharon told the Mirror.
Considering it the “final gift of love to (their) kids,” the couple have already contacted their lawyers to see to it that their wishes are respected.
“Ozzy and I have absolutely come to the same decision. We believe 100 percent in euthanasia so have drawn up plans to go to the assisted suicide flat in Switzerland if we ever have an illness that affects our brains. If Ozzy or I ever got Alzheimer's, that's it — we'd be off,” she revealed to the paper. “We gathered the kids around the kitchen table, told them our wishes and they've all agreed to go with it.”
More poor choices for Pamela Anderson
Pamela Anderson’s whirlwind engagement to Paris Hilton’s sex tape partner Rick Salomon is just another sign of what worried friends describe as increasingly wild behavior. “She parties almost every night,” reports one spy for the New York Post’s Page Six. “She drinks, she does stuff ... and she's got hepatitis C. Her liver is shot but she keeps living this crazy lifestyle. We don't think she understands how serious this is. She has two kids and may not be around to see them grow up at this rate.”
And just where are Dylan and Brandon, Pam’s sons with Tommy Lee? Thankfully, they’re far from the fracas, staying with Pam’s brother and mother while Mom stars in a Las Vegas magic show. Good thing, too! Lately, the Vegas behavior of both parents leaves a lot to be desired.
Friends report to Page Six that while Pam’s most recent ex-husband, Kid Rock, duked it out with Tommy at MTV’s Video Music Awards, Pam and her new fiancée (whom she’s been with for only six weeks) got a little nuts as well. “They went wild over the VMA weekend,” the spy said. “I just watched them party with my jaw open.”
As Pam is no stranger to illegally released Internet sex videos, Rick seems to be yet another bad choice in Pam’s list of unreliable losers. She’d be better off marrying Borat.
Dish on the fly
Though her “no whites” diet prevents “Baby Spice” Emma Bunton from eating pasta, her job as a Prego shill remains safe, reports TMZ. “There are many alternative methods for Emma to use the Prego pasta sauces without the pasta,” a company spokesperson assured a worried world. “She can have pasta sauce over meatballs, use over sandwiches, and many other fun and creative recipes that Prego offers.” … Brooke Shields is ready for baby No. 3, according to People. “I would love it,” the “Lipstick Jungle” actress told the magazine. “I might have to bind and gag my husband (Chris Henchy) because I think he's happy with the girls he has in his life, but if I can I'll do it!”
