Sharon Osbourne Slammed For Revealing She Sent Assistant Into Burning Home, Then Sacked Him
Sharon Osbourne is facing criticism after a revelation about how she sacked a former assistant during an appearance on Would I Lie To You?.
The music manager and former X Factor judge was a guest on the Christmas special of Would I Lie To You? on Thursday, where she shared a story about how she forced one of husband Ozzy Osbourne’s former staff members to go back into a house fire to retrieve some of her family’s expensive artworks.
Recalling the story, Sharon revealed that after lighting candles in their living room one Christmas, she came downstairs to discover that Ozzy’s arm and “half his hair” were on fire, angrily remembering that the assistant in question was “sleeping” at the time of the incident.
After helping Ozzy, Sharon told her fellow panellists: “I thought, right, where is that [censored] assistant? So I go into the guest house, and he’s like ‘is everything alright?’ and I’m like, ‘no, the house is on fire, get out and help, go in and get the paintings out’. And I said, ‘you must go in and find the dogs’.”
She continued: “So he has humming and ahh-ing – this ex-assistant – so anyway, he did get the dogs. And the fire engines arrived, very lovely people, and they came and they had this oxygen for the assistant. So I said, ‘how very dare you. You work here. You get more paintings out’.”Sharon then claimed she took the mask off Ozzy’s former assistant’s face and “put it on my dog”, to applause from the studio audience. 
Host Rob Brydon then questioned how the assistant came to be sacked, to which Sharon responded: “Well, after this terrible night, he was not talking to me. And Ozzy and I were recounting everything, we were laughing and laughing, and [the assistant] said, ‘I don’t see what’s funny about any of this’.
“He said ‘I think I’m going to have damaged lungs’, and I mean… ‘please’. So then, I just said ‘if you don’t think that’s funny, do you think this is funny… you’re fired!’.”Sharon then confirmed the story was true, but while her fellow panellists laughed off the revelation, many people on social media were shocked by what the TV personality disclosed...@wilty Sharon Osbourne: ‘I made an assistant enter a burning building, gave his oxygen mask to my dog, and sacked him.’ Laughter. Applause.Including this mean-spirited anecdote on the show—especially without any critical comments from other guests—seems like a real misjudgement.— Matthew Hunt (@mhuntuk) December 27, 2019My favourite TV programme but clear proof that getting the guest list correct is crucial. Usually the mix ranges from good to excellent but Sharon Osborne was awful. Safe to say she won’t be asked back #WILTY— Ian McGuffog (@IaMcGuffog) December 27, 2019Me @ Sharon Osbourne on would I lie to you pic.twitter.com/4zhgMZRw8s— Jonno. (@Jonno_de_Costa) December 27, 2019I nipped into the kitchen at the start of Sharon Osbourne's go on #WILTY, and now I'm wondering what the hell I missed, because there's no way that level of twisted lack of regard for other people is funny.— Dawn (@justanotherdawn) December 26, 2019@WILTY_TV sharon Osbourne that's not even funny, that's actually shocking! #vile— David Robinson (@Robinson92David) December 26, 2019Sharon Osborne, a woman worth $200m, just said on BBC One that she forced a member of staff go into her burning house to collect artwork, then sacked him when they didn’t laugh about it the next day. That’s.. vile? 🤔📺— Benjamin Butterworth (@benjaminbutter) December 26, 2019WILTY is my favourite show on TVI found Sharon Osbourne's story very upsetting.Please re cut this episode.I see it has been picked up by the Newspapers.— Jude Hider (@JudeHider) December 27, 2019Sharon Osbourne forced employee into fire to get art then sacked him for not laughing - Mirror Online ⁦@MrsSOsbourne⁩ my opinion of you has just changed. If true, you’re not a nice person at all. https://t.co/8R1t0WyMOl— C (@smithyj23) December 27, 2019Sharon Osbourne's story made the whole cast look bad. Baffled as to why include it.— AbFAB (@AnikBay) December 27, 2019I have not seen much of Sharon, but I hope @BBC never have her back on. What's sadder is in a room full of comedians no one had a joke and the audience laughed. She told the story with such Glee and enjoyment. Wonder who the PA was?— Robin Bremner (@BremnerRobin) December 26, 2019As if it wasn't bad enough laughing about forcing an employee in to a burning building to recover materialistic objects which were likely insured & then terminating the staff member's employment when they "didn't find it funny", @MrsSOsbourne brags about taking their oxygen mask?— Olly (@W0llyams) December 26, 2019Sharon Osbourne's PR people #WILTYpic.twitter.com/1rn3FjJIUi— Dave Williams 🌹🕊 (@realdavedoubleu) December 27, 2019HuffPost UK has contacted representatives for Sharon Osbourne for comment.
Sharon is currently in the UK appearing in the Christmas live show Nativity, alongside Rylan Clark-Neal and both Danny and Dani Dyer.
Over the Christmas period she’s also been on Michael McIntyre’s Big Show, where she played Send To All, and recently appeared as a guest panellist on Loose Women.READ MORE...

Star Wars Director Says It's About Time A Woman Makes A Star Wars Movie
Jan 02, 2024
Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy is directing an upcoming Star Wars movie that brings back Daisy Ridley in the role of Rey. Obaid-Chinoy will become the first woman to direct a Star Wars film, dating back to the franchise's origins in the 1970s. Speaking about this, Obaid-Chinoy told CNN that she is "very thrilled" to make the movie and create something that is "very special.""We're in 2024 now, and I think it's about time we had a woman come forward to shape the story in a galaxy far, far away," she said.Obaid-Chinoy won Best Documentary, Short Subjects Academy Awards for Saving Face (2012) and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015).In 2020, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy told the BBC that a woman would eventually direct a Star Wars movie, saying that would "absolutely" happen, "without question." Victoria Mahoney was a second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, but a woman has never claimed a top directing credit on a Star Wars movie.On the TV side of things, The Mandalorian has featured a number of female directors, including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard. Chow went on to direct the Obi-Wan TV series, too.Another high-profile franchise that has never had a female director is James Bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli and Skyfall director Sam Mendes have both said they want to see a woman direct a future 007 film.As for Obaid-Chinoy's Star Wars movie, little is known about it apart from the fact that Ridley will come back to play Rey. It is expected that this film will be the first of the three new Star Wars films to come to theaters, possibly releasing in December 2025.According to a report, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight is writing the Rey movie, taking over for Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson.

NBA Names Clare Akamanzi CEO Of NBA Africa
Jan 02, 2024 15:29
The NBA named Clare Akamanzi – an accomplished business executive and international trade and investment lawyer – as CEO of NBA Africa. Akamanzi will start her position on Jan. 23, 2024, and report to NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum. In this role, Akamanzi will oversee the NBA’s business and basketball development efforts in Africa and will be responsible for continuing to grow the popularity of basketball, the NBA and the Basketball Africa League (BAL) across the continent, including through grassroots basketball development, media distribution, corporate partnerships, and social responsibility initiatives that improve the livelihoods of African youth and families. For the last six and a half years, Akamanzi was CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RDB), where she spearheaded Rwanda’s economic development by enabling private sector growth. Under Akamanzi’s leadership, RDB implemented several business policy reforms and initiatives that led to significant investment and development for the country, including through partnerships with the BAL, Arsenal FC, Paris Saint-Germain FC, FC Bayern Munich and TIME Magazine, among others. “Clare’s business acumen, international experience and familiarity with basketball and the NBA make her the ideal executive to lead our business in Africa,” says Tatum. “NBA Africa and the Basketball Africa League are well-positioned for continued growth, and under Clare’s leadership we believe these initiatives will transform economies, communities and lives across the continent.” “I’ve seen firsthand how sports can positively impact businesses, families and communities in Africa, and the NBA and the BAL are a perfect example of that,” says Akamanzi. “The NBA has done an incredible job growing basketball and the economy around it across the continent, and I’m excited about the enormous opportunities ahead to build on that momentum.” Previously, Akamanzi was Chief Operating Officer of RDB and Head of Strategy and Policy Unit, Office of the President of the Republic of Rwanda. She has extensive international trade, business and diplomatic experience, having previously worked for the Rwandan Government at the World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland and at the Rwandan Embassy in London, England. Akamanzi has worked or studied in seven different countries and holds an honorary LLD from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, in recognition of her work in Rwanda. She earned a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was the recipient of three prestigious awards for academic excellence and distinguished contribution to the community: the Lucius N. Littauer Fellows Award, the Raymond & Josephine Vernon Award and the Robert Kennedy Public Service Award. In addition, Akamanzi holds a Master of Laws degree in international trade and investments from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Akamanzi has served on several company boards, including the World Health Organization (WHO) Foundation, ECOBANK and Aviation, Travel and Logistics (ATL) company. She was recognized by Forbes as one of Africa’s Top 50 Powerful Women in 2020.
