Sharon Osbourne is known for speaking her mind – even if her thoughts and opinions get her in trouble from time to time. In fact, it’s that reputation that resulted in Adrienne Bailon-Houghton and Ashlan Gorse Cousteau – two co-hosts of E! News – putting her through a little game called ‘Stirring the Pot.’
She was joined by her daughter, Kelly Osbourne, and the object of the game was simple – pick a note card out of the ‘pot’ and answer the question, no matter what it asks. It took just two questions before the 70-year-old shocked us with an answer none of us saw coming – even her daughter was surprised.
The note card read, “Name the rudest celebrity you’ve ever met” – a topic that Ashlan thought was ‘perfect’ for Sharon. She wasted no time in giving her answer, but needed a little help remembering the celebrity’s name. “The guy that’s married to an actress and he used to do That 70’s Show,” she said.
Kelly Osbourne knew exactly who she was talking about – it was Ashton Kutcher. The answer shocked the co-hosts and Kelly, but Sharon Osbourne doubled down on her response. “Oh, rude, rude, rude, rude little boy,” she said of Ashton. The co-hosts – and Kelly – agreed they weren’t prepared for that at all.
Sharon being Sharon, she tripled down on her response. “Rude, rude, yes – dastardly little thing,” she said in her British accent. Unfortunately for those who were listening, no explanation or reason was given and they quickly moved on to the next question. Of course, the pot had already been stirred at that point.
Why Does Sharon Osbourne Not Like Ashton Kutcher?
While she didn’t offer an explanation during her interview with E! News, we might have an idea of what ticked Sharon Osbourne off when it comes to Ashton Kutcher. During her time as a co-host on The Talk – between 2010 and 2021 – she had an off-putting run-in with Kutcher, who was a guest at the time.
She talked about their interaction in an interview with Larry King in 2018. He asked her if there was ever an interview that didn’t quite go the way she wanted it to. While there were several names that came to mind, she zeroed in on Ashton Kutcher – she actually called him ‘Ashton Kushner’ when talking to King.
Larry King brought up the fact that Kutcher was the highest-paid actor on TV at the time, but Osbourne wasn’t impressed – “Lordy, lord,” she said in dismay. When asked what she didn’t like about him, she said he had a ‘bad attitude’ towards her because she accidentally screwed his name up while speaking to him.
“He was pissed. And he comes on with an attitude. And he goes, ‘What have you done in this industry?’ And I was like, ‘Kid, don’t start with me because I’m going to eat you up and s**t you out.’ And so I was just like, ‘You don’t know what you’re dealing with, kid,’” she explained while Larry King chuckled.
While it’s unclear if anything has happened between Ashton Kutcher and Sharon Osbourne since that interview, it’s clear that she still has a bitter taste in her mouth whenever she says or hears his name. If there’s one thing I do know, it’s that Sharon Osbourne is the last person you want to anger or upset.
