Sharon Osbourne recently disclosed a captivating incident involving the late Whitney Houston during the rehearsals for the VH1 show Divas Duets in 2003. The revelation, shared on Sharon’s family podcast, The Osbournes, sheds light on a moment when Whitney accused Sharon of pursuing her then-husband, Bobby Brown.
During the sound check for the show, Sharon found herself seated alongside Bobby Brown and Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, who was a fan of the Osbournes’ MTV reality show. As Whitney performed on stage, she abruptly stopped singing and confronted Sharon with a surprising question: “Mrs. Osbourne, are you trying to f**k my husband?”
Sharon, taken aback, vehemently denied any such intention, stating, “No, no, please, I’m not!” In a panic, she jumped out of her seat and ran down the aisle to clarify her innocence.
To Sharon’s relief, her pave diamond ring became an unexpected savior in diffusing the tense situation. As Whitney demanded to see the ring, Sharon seized the opportunity to divert attention. “Let me see that ring,” Whitney exclaimed, providing Sharon with the perfect distraction. Without hesitation, Sharon handed over the ring, saying, “I’d love you to have it,” and reassured Whitney of her marital status, declaring, “I promise you, I’m not interested in your husband; I’m married!”
This revelation adds a humorous twist to an otherwise unexpected encounter between two iconic figures. Sharon Osbourne’s quick thinking and the peculiar role of a pave diamond ring turned what could have been an awkward situation into a memorable exchange, creating a unique backstage moment in the annals of entertainment history.
