Monday Night Date Night: A Sharon Osbourne Show taping

Consisted of:

-Sitting out on the cold patio after work with Yoshi (where is everyone? why are we the only ones out here and who are those two dudes with suits on standing at the doorway?)

-Sharon Osbourne’s car pulling up to the gate at the last minute. All of a sudden, the two dudes in suits jump into action. Sharon pops out of the car and is practically running toward her studio. Her people are carrying shopping bags from Barney’s, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and other pricey places behind her. Sharon sees us sitting (shivering) on the patio and says to us “It’s so cold out here! What are you doing out here?!” I answer that we’re just waiting to get in to see her. And with that, she’s gone. But more shopping bags are still going from the car into the studio. Someone was late to her own show because she went on a Rodeo Drive shopping spree.

-We get VIP treatment and get to sit in the front row in one of the comfy couches. We’re glad that we don’t have to sit on the nasty folding chairs. People are freaking out around us. Evidently there are some unexpected “production guests” who get to be in the front row & some people are getting moved.

-The warm-up guy comes on and tries to get everyone’s energy up. He gets some help when the Executive Producer comes by and informs him that OZZY is going to be in-studio. Even he is freaking out. Girls are crying over the news that he’ll be there. It turns out, not only is he going to be there, he is going to sit in the audience. Crowd goes nuts.

-Show starts Sharon comes out and people are cheering like crazy. Tisha Campbell-Martin is co-hosting the show. Tisha’s friends and family are sitting on the couch next to ours.

-First guest: Eliza Dushku. BRING IT ON! She looks great and tells a story about being robbed. The producer screws up and hits the “Applause” sign at the wrong time & people clap at her being mugged. Oops.

-Next guest: AJ McLean (from the Backstreet Boys) and his mom, Debbie. Before he even gets on the stage, people catch a glimpse of him standing backstage. There are more tears. Somehow there are throngs of 13 year-old girls who had been standing outside, waiting all afternoon. It seems like this is the appropriate time to burst into tears. Now we have half the crowd crying because Ozzy is sitting in the audience with us, the other half crying because there is a Backstreet Boy in the studio. What a mix of people.

-Sharon does a special photoshoot for a project Tisha Campbell-Martin is working on. They are supposed to tape another episode (with wraparounds only, no guests). It’s supposed to be fast, but it’s not. We sit patiently for a while, but decide to leave early. I am 99% sure that neither Yoshi nor I have any kind of camera time. Hooray!

-The episode we watched will air THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26. Here’s the description from the Sharon Osbourne site: “My Wife and Kids” star Tisha Campbell-Martin co-hosts with Sharon for the hour! Sharon and Tisha chat with “Tru Calling” star Eliza Dushku about the Fox drama. Then Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean and his mom, Denise, talk about their book, “Backstreet Mom: A Mother’s Tale of Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean’s Rise to Fame, Struggle with Addiction and Ultimate Triumph.” Plus, Nelly Furtado chats with Sharon and Tisha and performs a track from her new CD, “Folklore!”

-Dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory. Yum.

I figured that Sharon’s show had been taping across from our office this entire time & it would be nice to sit in on one. Glad that it was one where Ozzy came to cheer on his wife.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
