Sharon Osbourne's fat gran dream
Mar 11, 2010, 6:01 GMT
Sharon Osbourne can't wait to be a fat granny.
The TV star - who shed a substantial amount of weight after undergoing a gastric band operation nine years ago - is looking forward to the day when she can gorge on food and no longer worry about what she looks like.
She said: "Oh yes. When I stop working on TV the floodgates will open and I'll end up a fatty, but I'll be happy. I want to be a granny and grannies are supposed to be fat. Why are people just interested in my size? I'm just a middle-aged woman who happens to be in the limelight."
The 57-year-old star - who has famously spent over £300,000 on cosmetic surgery - confesses she still isn't very careful about what passes her lips.
She said: "I'm meant to. You'd have thought I'd have learnt the lesson after having colon cancer and bulimia. The problem is I want to enjoy a dinner with my friends, but I know that the next day I'll be wearing it on my legs."
Although Sharon can't wait can't wait for one of her children - Aimee, 26, Kelly, 25, and 24-year-old Jack - to make her and husband Ozzy Osbourne grandparents she doesn't want to be referred to by the traditional title because it would make her sound old.
Instead, the 'America's Got Talent' judge wants her grandchildren to call her "Pookey".
She said: "I desperately want grandkids, it's a gift of getting old. But I don't want to be called gran. And definitely not grandmother. I'd like some kind of doggy type name. Something like Pookey!"
