The Osbornes Reveal All About TV Return

Just when you thought we'd seen the last of Ozzy Osbourne's family, Kelly, Jack, Sharon and Mr. Sabbath himself are set to return with Osbournes Reloaded on Fox this spring. The clan held a press conference yesterday, with Mike Darnell, Fox's president of alternative entertainment, saying, "We are letting them go as far as they can. They are raunchy and funny and also a warm, real family... We might have a few old age pensioners being kissed, and stripping grandmas, but it is all good clean fun. There is nothing mean spirited about it."
Kelly Osbourne added, "The word 'variety' frightens us. No disrespect to other variety shows of the past. It's just not what we do. We're not going to be Sonny and Cher-ing it."
Six episodes have been shot so far, with more on the way if the show does well.
"I'm willing to try anything once," Ozzy said. "We are a very dysfunctional family, doing a very dysfunctional show."
