Cooper: `The Osbournes Was A Bad Idea'
Rocker Alice Cooper has slammed Ozzy Osbourne's manager/wife SHARON for agreeing to put the family in front of the camera for reality show The Osbournes - because the series wrecked his pal's mystique. Cooper refused to watch the show after catching a glimpse of an early episode, and now claims Sharon turned Ozzy into a laughing stock. He explains, "Most fans thought he lived in a big, dark castle with skeletons in the cellar. When that show aired they knew he was just some guy who potters around his Beverly Hills mansion. "It was meant to be some kind of comedy but the audience was laughing at Ozzy, not with him. And as a close friend, that made me very sad."
