Osbourne: Online dating is desperate

Sharon Osbourne

Sharon Osbourne, 60, thinks Martha Stewart is “desperate” for trying online dating aged 71.

The 60-year-old television presenter blasted the 71-year-old American business magnate after hearing she had joined recently.

Sharon is married to rocker Ozzy Osbourne and has children Amy, Jack and Kelly with him.

“At her age? I think it's rather desperate,” she told Extra host Mario Lopez.

The presenter visited Sharon on the set of her show The Talk where she shared her feelings.

The former Saved By The Bell actor heard how Sharon doesn’t even believe Martha is taking the signing up process seriously. Sharon thinks Martha is likely liaising with men on the website only for publicity.

“I don't think for one minute she'd go out with somebody she met online,” she expressed. “Silly woman.”

Sharon is a panellist on the programme with Aisha Tyler, Sheryl Underwood, Julie Chen and Sarah Gilbert.

Sarah challenged her, suggesting that the experiment may actually change Martha’s life.

“But what if she did and found love?” she questioned.

However Sharon’s response was that a good relationship forming from this would be impossible.

The sarcastic reality TV personality humorously reassured Sarah that Martha’s online romances are doomed to fail.

“And there's a great big pig flying over there,” she replied.

Sharon has reportedly agreed to a £1.5 million X Factor deal.

The Mirror reports that the outspoken star will return to the British show’s judging panel after a six year absence.

She is set to replace outgoing judge Tulisa Contostavlos.

Sharon appeared as a UK X Factor judge from 2004 to 2007, but left after feuding with fellow judge Dannii Minogue.
