Rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne has confessed she was lying when she recently told a British talk show host she had undergone an intimate operation on her genitals, insisting she made it up to be "flippant". Ozzy Osbourne's wife stunned BBC TV presenter Graham Norton last month (Nov13) when she claimed to have had reconstructive surgery on her vagina in 2011, branding the operation "excruciating". Asked if it was worth the pain, she quipped, "My husband thinks so. It's back the way God wanted it to be." However, cancer-survivor Osbourne, who has previously gone under the knife for multiple procedures, has now revealed it was all just a cheeky ruse. During an appearance on U.S. shockjock Howard Stern's radio show on Wednesday (11Dec13), she explained, "(Norton) said to me, 'What cosmetic surgery have you had?' I said, 'Oh, I've had my vagina tightened!' A flippant, stupid thing to be silly... "I've not had it done... I made it up. I swear on my children's lives (it was) just to be flippant... I do it all the time... How could I do that after I've had so much ill health? Now I'm not gonna start putting scaffolding up my vagina? It's like, no." Osbourne, 61, was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2002, but managed to overcome the potentially-deadly disease and is now back to full health. She has previously admitted to undergoing a tummy tuck, a boob job, gastric band surgery and a facelift.
