Sharon Osbourne is as famous for being a wife and a mother as she is a showbiz personality.

caption="What do you want to ask Sharon Osbourne?"]
Married to infamous bat-biting rocker (and former Connector of the Day) Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon has a wide list of occupations to her name, from music manager to promoter to author.

She first came to real attention with hit reality show "The Osbournes," which followed her family's daily life. Sharon followed that runaway by becoming a regular television commentator and a judge on talent programs such as "The X-Factor" and "America's Got Talent."

Her autobiography, "Extreme," was extremely successful and sold more than two million copies worldwide. Just this week she published her debut novel, "Revenge," based on much of her own life and featuring two sisters as they quest for success along life's rocky road.

Now's your chance to ask Sharon Osbourne YOUR questions.

What is life like with Ozzy? Will there be a sequel to "The Osbournes?" What's it like being a talent show judge? And please let us know from where you are writing.

    Being born Jewish, did you carry on with your religion with your children or was it abandoned completely ? I thought I saw once, you and Oz in a Jewish ceremony, were you exchanging vows ? I only saw a bit of it: Mazel tov with your next show.

    I just want to say thank you for keeping Ozzy alive all these years. He is the master and has put out a lot of great stuff because of you standing by him.

    children have everything to do how their home enviroment is, parents are everything to their children.
    if children turn out bad is because of parents.

    I want to compliment Sharon and Ozzy for being who they are, not fakes, but, real and loving people. To also thank you for sharing your lives and beautiful music with all of your fans. I admire the Osbourne family, especially Sharon for being a great role model for other women in this world that look up to her for her strength and positive attitude.

    I would love to know the name of her plastic surgeon – whoever he is has done an amazing job – it may have cost her a lot of money – but her brilliant surgeon's work has definitely created THE most natural look of most of the Hollywood celebrities.

    But will she tell who he/she is?

    Mrs Osbourne .. Your plastic surgeon has done an amazing job of maintaining a natural look, you look absolutely stunning, PLEASE dont have anymore procedures done.. I realy think there is a point where enough is enough and would hate for you to ruin your gorgeous face!!!

    Hi Sharon, I have heard that you are a bander, and you have maintained a beautiful figure throughout the years, do you still have fills and can you eat bread, pasta, or even take medication without the fear of ulcers, etc.

    Being a strong, independent and powerful woman who has had dealings with young women who are epitomes of exact opposite of those traits (think Rock of Love Charm School), what would you say is the driving force behind the condoned superficiality and ignorance of the American woman? What can people individually do to hinder this trend?
    I've watched Sharon and family for years, I was there for the neighbor food fight, Jack's ascent, and now Kelly's newfound confidences. She's most definitely not the typical American mother/woman and that's the exact reason why she is A+ in my book.

    You really have to be a good businesswoman (not to mention infant nurse/cop) to make such an enormous fortune with a singer with subpar range and the stage demeanor of Quasimodo with lumbalgia, but knowing your personal history (save, I just learn, that you're Jewish), I've always wondered: how does stealing your meal ticket from your own father, Johnny's previous manager feel, after all these years? Also, are you Gene Simmons friend? You deserve each other way more than your former gas fitter...

    As a cancer patient (in remission, so far so good), I went through the usual gamut of emotions, coming out the other side a little wiser, but also a little angrier. Overall the experience has brought my family closer together, but has also left me very intolerant of fools and extremists, a radical change for me. Has your experience changed you and/or your family in any such fundamental ways? I'm in New Zealand.
