Sharon and her close friend Louis Walsh, both 71, often exchanged thoughts about Simon during their time on The X Factor. However, after Amanda, 53, expressed her disdain this week, Sharon, known for her no-nonsense attitude, fired back, aiming to school her on her life. In a sharp retort, Sharon made it clear that Amanda would never measure up to her standards and had chosen the wrong opponent. Addressing Amanda directly on social media, Sharon acknowledged that her response was prompted by Amanda’s disparaging remarks. Sharon clarified certain inaccuracies in Amanda’s statements.

“The statement ‘I hated seeing certain people in a reality show dissing Simon – he’s the person who’s given them all the chances, given them a lot of money and lifestyle they probably wouldn’t have had.’

“Unlike you, the brand of Sharon Osbourne is known worldwide

“The truth is, you don’t know me, Amanda. You know nothing about my history in the music industry, my achievements, the artists I have worked with, the shows that I’ve produced, and my global celebrity.

“Unlike you, the brand of Sharon Osbourne is known worldwide.

“There are many countries that I could work in if I choose to however, I don’t have the ambition or time to do so, and unlike you, I don’t work in radio or pantomime.”

Talking of her glam life back home, which she said she usually keeps under wraps, Sharon continued: “Our worlds are totally different. I have been blessed with an amazing lifestyle throughout my entire life.

“Before you were born, I was living in a mansion in Beverly Hills and continue to do so today and continue to have my country estate in England as well.

“But there is something you should know. I never discuss money, lifestyle, or positions of power.

“I find it to be classless and crude. However, you’ve now forced my hand to divulge these things to you and I honestly don’t want to seem like I’m bragging, but the truth is my money and success were not due to doing a couple of Simon Cowell talent shows.

“Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed doing them at the time as they were great fun. Yes, Simon paid me very well. Probably more than what you’re receiving today, but all of that my darling went on a few handbags.”

Sharon then addressed her time on the X Factor, which spanned between 2004 and 2007, as well as in 2013, and between 2016 and 2017.

No disrespect to Simon Cowell but he NEEDED ME for musical credibility on X Factor

She added: “At the time that I worked on X Factor, I was the only judge who had global accomplishments with multiple million-selling artists, Grammy Award winners and arena and stadium headliners.

“I was also a very successful festival producer with Ozzfest which ran for 24 years, as well as a best-selling author and producer of the hit MTV show The Osbournes for which I received an Emmy Award.

“Amanda, I think you’re missing the point here. No disrespect to Simon Cowell but he NEEDED ME for musical credibility on X Factor and I delivered for him and together all of us made a great team.

“It was only after several seasons of X Factor that Simon started to build his music empire and I give him much kudos for what he built.

“But in case you are living under a rock, my husband is a music icon who has sold 170 million albums, won 5 Grammy Awards, and is a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee. We have been married 42 years and we had a fantastic lifestyle before I ever heard of Simon Cowell.”

As she wrapped her scathing response, she added: “On closing, I hope I’ve given you a proper education about me so that the next time you choose to mention me, you’ll have some facts in your pocket.

“The bottom line, Amanda, is, that you’ll never be in my league, and you’ve picked on the wrong ugly stepsister.

“Sharon Osbourne.”

One fan was quick to gush: “Love your response” as another put: “kudos.”

A third then posted: “Damn! Mrs. Osbourne knows how to give a “READ”!!!

“Watch out Amanda, Sharon’s reads are coming in HOT and they’re coming for YOU!”

The Sun has reached out to Amanda’s reps for comment.

Mandy’s Musings

On Friday, it was reported that Amanda came to the defense of her boss, Simon, after Sharon criticized him in the Celebrity Big Brother house. Amanda expressed her disapproval of certain individuals on reality shows disparaging Simon, highlighting that he had provided them with opportunities, substantial income, and a lifestyle they likely wouldn’t have had otherwise. She characterized such behavior as bitter and pathetic, likening it to the tale of Cinderella with her envious sisters in the background. Sharon, on the other hand, claimed that she missed out on a job on The Masked Singer U.S. panel due to Simon. She disclosed that she declined the significant opportunity because she believed she would be returning to The X Factor, only to be replaced at the last minute. Sharon attributed their removal from the competition to ageism, along with fellow panelist Louis.

Who has won Celebrity Big Brother?

The inaugural season of Celebrity Big Brother premiered in March 2001 on Channel 4.

Here’s a rundown of the winners who have clinched the coveted title thus far:

Season 1 (2001): Comedian Jack Dee beat actress Claire Sweeney despite walking out of the house and evading security for about an hour. The series was also more memorable for Vanessa Feltz telling Big Brother to “f*** off” after chalking “incarcerated”, “ambushed” and “restricted” on the table.

However, Chantelle Houghton won over viewers and housemates alike and was crowned the winner. During her time in the house she found love with Ordinary Boys singer Preston. There was also added drama when George Galloway pretended to be Rula Lenska’s pet cat.

Season 15 (2015): Katie Price won the battle of the Katies as she saw off controversial Katie Hopkins in the final. The biggest talking point was American blogger Perez Hilton’s raging row with Calum Best, but the series also saw two early ejections of Jeremy Jackson and Ken Morley.

Season 16 (2015): Apprentice star James Hill beat model Austin Armacost. Tila Tequila was evicted on just the second day after she was found to have posted support for Adolf Hitler on social media.

Season 21 (2018): Courtney Act, otherwise known as Shane Jenek, won with politician Ann Widdecombe as runner-up.

Season 22 (2018): Winning Dancing On Ice in 2024, was not Ryan Thomas‘s first reality show title. He won the CBB title in 2018, after a shocking “run-in” with Emmerdale actress Roxanne Pallet, who falsely accused him of punching her. Actress Kirstie Alley came second.

During the conversation in the CBB bedroom, Sharon raged: “That’s Simon, he cuts you off, cuts you off, cuts you off. He doesn’t know how to keep friends.

“Why do you think I am so f****g mad with Simon because remember that year you and I were contracted to do X Factor? And it was the first year of The Masked Singer in America and they asked me to do it and I said I can’t because of X Factor with Simon.

“So then they cast it and then when Simon, well he didn’t call, but they called and said ‘No you’re not doing it [X Factor]’ I missed a huge gig. So I was furious.”

She continued: “Do you remember everything that year in the press? They’re old, young blood. I went mad.

“And then he called me. He was trying to sweet talk me. He would always say change, change, change. You’re the one that needs changing mate.”
