Osbourne Tricked Into Rehab
Rocker Ozzy Osbourne was tricked into signing up for a rehab stint at the Betty Ford Center when his manager/wife SHARON told him the drying-out clinic had a bar.
The naive rock icon checked into the famous rehab mecca shortly after his now 22-year-old daughter KELLY was born - when his wife told him counsellors there would teach him how to drink properly.
He recalls, "Sharon told me about a place where they teach you to drink properly... I thought, `That's it! I've been doing it wrong.'"
Osbourne stunned the clinic's receptionist when he walked in and asked for directions to the bar.
But the rehab stint worked and Osbourne has fought to stay sober ever since.
He says, "Some days are bad and some days are great. I get up and I pray, `Don't let me drink today.'"
