Sharon Osbourne "Overwhelmed" by the online reaction of her divorce

After avoiding social media for days, Sharon Osbourne has started looking at the public reaction to her split and is feeling "overwhelmed" by the response.

It's been a whirlwind week thus far for the 63-year-old daytime talk show host after sources confirmed over the weekend that she and her husband, Ozzy Osbourne, had broken up after 33 years of marriage. After taking a day off from her hosting duties Monday, the British star returned to The Talk Tuesday with further explanation of her current situation. 

Among her remarks, Osbourne was careful to note that she had been keeping her eyes off of the news. 

"I've been avoiding looking at any pictures, reading anything," she said Tuesday afternoon. "I know what's going on. I don't need to read about it and see about it because it's like putting salt on a wound. I don't need to."

However, a day later, she sat at the table with her wedding ring still on her left hand to make an admission. 

"Yesterday, I said that I haven't looked at any articles or anything that have been written about my husband and I and the girls here said I have to go on social media and see and have a look," she revealed.
