Celebrity Big Brother star Sharon Osbourne has issued her response after Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden slammed her as “bitter and pathetic”. Amanda’s comments came after both Sharon and Louis Walsh discussed their mutual co-star, Simon Cowell, while appearing on the ITV reality show.

Taking to social media platform X, formerly Twitter, Sharon shared a lengthy message to Amanda. She said: “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.”

Sharon told Amanda that they will never be in the same league and that they inhabit “totally different” worlds. “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.”

Sharon continued: “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.”

Sharon clarified that “money and success” were not a result of appearing on Simon’s talent shows, but came from her reality show The Osbournes. “The bottom line, Amanda, is, that you’ll never be in my league, and you’ve picked on the wrong ugly stepsister,” she concluded.

The 71-year-old music manager’s comments came after an interview Amanda, 53, gave with The Daily Mail. Amanda said: “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 a lifestyle they probably wouldn’t have had.

“It’s bitter and pathetic. It was like Cinderella with her two sisters in the background - just stabby, stabby, stabby. I thought, ‘Oh my God, it’s like watching a pantomime.’ I just think they look so nasty and awful.”
