Sharon Osbourne opens up about multiple suicide attempts

Cape Town – Sharon Osbourne has opened up about her struggle with depression in conjunction with Mental Health Awareness Month.

In a candid discussion about mental health on The Talk, the show host spoke candidly of her struggle with her fellow co-hosts, saying: "I was joking about this but I shouldn’t, talking about my depression, and it’s like, you know saying, 'Oh, the first time I tried to kill myself was OK, the second — all right, the third time, oy!'"

Sharon added: "But it’s like, I’m still here. I still do what I do and you struggle."

The 66-year-old went on to mention that the notion of living "happily ever after" simply does not exist.
