OZZY OSBOURNE MARRIAGE JUST A BUMP IN THE ROAD
Ozzy Osbourne said his very public split from wife Sharon Osbourne earlier this year was just a “bump in the road” and the two are now “back on track again.”
“Oh, she’s back on track again,” Osbourne, 67, said in an interview that aired today on “Good Morning America.” “You just, you make mistakes, and you learn by your mistakes, I think.”

After tabloid reports of turbulence in their 33-year marriage, Sharon announced on CBS’ “The Talk” in May that she had kicked her husband out of their home.
“I’m 63 years of age and I can’t keep living like this,” she said on the show, of which she is a co-host. “I don’t know where I’m going, who I’m going with. And I just need time to think.”
Now, two months later, Ozzy Osbourne, who shares three children with Sharon, put a different perspective on their marital troubles.
“No, it’s just a bump in the road,” said the Black Sabbath rocker. “Some days it’s good, some days it’s terrible, some days you just drift apart for a while. But you get back on the horse, you know.”
Osbourne’s son, Jack, who is married with two children of his own, defended the fact that marriage is not always perfect.
“As a married person myself, you know, marriage is not like, ‘Hey, we’re married. All is good.’ I mean, it’s just life,” Jack told “GMA.”
The Osbourne father and son are hitting the road together for their new, offbeat travelogue reality series, "Ozzy and Jack's World Detour."
“It’s kind of like a father-son bucket-list travel history show,” Jack explained.
Osbourne described the show as, “kind of like learning about each other, as well as learning about history along the way.”
The pair said the show made them realize they share some similarities, while also pointing out their differences.
“Jack’s the organized [one], where I’m not,” Osbourne laughed.
“No, it’s funny though, that you say that,” said Jack. “I realized a lot of our similarities while doing this.”
“You can drive and I can’t,” Osbourne joked again.
When asked what they think people will take away from their new show, the answer was simple.
“I hope they enjoy the show,” said Ozzy. “I hope they get a good laugh out of it, and learn something about us. And just have fun with it, you know? It’s just not a serious show. It’s just a lighthearted tour around the world.”
"Ozzy and Jack's World Detour" airs Sundays on the History Channel.
