Imagine being married to a man for 30 years only to find out you were excluded from his last will and testament?
Monday on The Talk, the hosts, along with guest co-hosts Joey and Matthew Lawrence, discussed Paulina Porizkova being excluded from late husband, Ric Ocasek’s, will. And Sharon Osbourne let her opinion about it all fly.
What did Mrs. O think about Paulina’s situation?
Sharon Osbourne blasted on Paulina Porizkova’s exclusion from The Cars frontman Ric Ocasek’s will.
“When he married her, she was one of the most successful models in the world. And she gave up her career, a few years into the marriage, because he was very needy. And she took care of him year after year after year, emotionally, every which way.”
Mrs. O got very emotional, as she is now in a similar situation taking care of her husband, Ozzy Osboune, who has Parkinson’s disease.
She added: “And I think that she probably, in later life, as she is, thought I just can’t keep doing this anymore, and I need ‘me.’ And so, it was a friendly parting. She was there taking care of him. He died when she was outgoing to get his coffee. And she came back and he had gone. He passed…If that was me, I’d be as pissed off as she is.”
Watch as Sharon tells it like it is, about the fact Ocasek was so petty in his final actions:
What happened to Ric Ocasek?
Ric Ocasek was found dead at his New York City townhouse by his wife Paulina Porizkova on September 15, 2019. He was recovering from surgery and was 75 years old.
The chief medical examiner’s office determined that he died from natural causes. He suffered from both hypertensive heart and coronary artery disease.
The couple previously announced in 2017 that they were separating, and then began divorce proceedings in the weeks leading up to his death.
She revealed her modeling earnings were poured into their marriage over time and felt “betrayed” by the exclusion of her in his will. Porizkova has reportedly filed court papers to seek part of his estate, which is estimated to be worth $5 million.
Porizkova was at one time considered to be one of the world’s most famous supermodels. She worked for Estee Lauder as their famous face and graced the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition in 1984 as their lead swimsuit model.
