Sharon Osbourne Follows in Kim Kardashian's Footsteps

10 Mar 2016

The talk show host has posted a similar selfie online

Ozzy Osbourne's wife Sharon has pulled a Kim Kardashian! The reality TV star, who serves as a co-host on U.S. chat show The Talk, posted a picture similar to Kardashian’s recent selfie, with only two black bars edited onto the snap to protect her modesty.

 Sharon was given the task of sharing the picture on an episode of The Talk, where she and her co-hosts were discussing the recent uproar over Kim's daring social media photo.

Sharon confessed she's never felt particularly proud about her own body, and realised she was being hypocritical by calling out females who post similar photos without ever having been exposed to the world as such herself.

"Something that Kim said was being comfortable in your own skin, and I've never been comfortable in my own skin since the day I was born," Sharon explained.

"I've never been on the beach with a swimsuit only.”

"I'm always saying about people who do this that I'm not into that. I don't like people who make money on their body. Then I thought to myself, 'Well, you're a bit of a hypocrite because you've never done it, so how can you talk about something that you've never experienced?'"

She continued, "It's not age appropriate for a 63-year-old to do that (take such a photo), however I talked myself into it and I did it. I must say, I did feel a bit liberated. I felt empowered to the fact that this is probably going to be the skinniest that I'll ever be in my life. I'll probably eat it all on by the time we hit Christmas, so I might as well have a picture while I was at the right weight for my body. I felt empowered."

Sharon isn't the only star to show solidarity to Kim by sharing their own barely censored selfies - model/actress Emily Ratajkowski also posted a similar shot of herself, tweeting, "Love when a man comments on a woman's decision to post a nude photo. Her body, her career. Sexist bulls**t."

Looks like Kim’s started quite a bit of a trend.
