Sharon Osbourne in Family Feud With Brother She Calls "Weak"




Don’t expect a warm and fuzzy moment between Sharon Osbourne and her older brother any time soon. The Talk co-host is in a bitter feud with sibling David Arden.

According to The Mirror, Osbourne and Arden had been at odds for 15 years. They started speaking again when Osbourne’s kids became teenagers, but had another falling out following the death of their father, Don Arden. Mrs. O stated:

I'm fuming. We call him Fredo after the weak son in The Godfather who sold the family out – that’s my brother. I’ve not spoken to him in nine years but he pops his head up every now and then. It seems all he wants is our money. I want absolutely nothing to do with him. READ MORE

The Chew Celebrates 500 Episodes

The Chew was impossible to digest for ABC Daytime fans, when it first replaced All My Children, but is the foodie fest finally going down more smoothly? On Tuesday, The Chew celebrates its 500th episode. 

In an Associated Press interview, Mario Batali, Clinton Kelly, Michael Symon, Daphne Oz and Carla Hall talk about what their show has become.


"We have five distinctly different characters, versus a single-host show," notes Hall (a memorable past competitor on Bravo's "Top Chef" and the owner of an artisan cookie company). "That means we have five different ways of doing things. So we are saying to the viewer, 'If YOU have a sixth way, that's OK, too.' We empower the viewers to have their own perspectives." READ MORE
