Sharon Osbourne's secret to success

I've written about Sharon Osbourne before, and I'm sure I'll write about her again - I just find her story so fascinating. There's something so inspiring about the fiery red-head, even if I do find her straight-talking to be a little bit on the cringe-worthy side (except when it's directed towards Simon Cowell that is).Whether you love her or hate her, you have to admit that Sharon has a refreshing outlook on life. Last year she hit out at actresses and stars that tried to hide the fact that they'd had cosmetic surgery and she's so open about the various things she's had done you can't help but think she's right when she says there's nothing to be ashamed of. Having had a facelift, liposuction, a tummy tuck and breast augmentation, as well as frequent trips to the hairdresser, Sharon looks fabulous. But it hasn't always been the case for the wife of veteran rocker Ozzy Osbourne. In fact, Sharon's been spilling all in a series of interviews recently, and she reveals that she thinks that being ugly drove her to fight for success! The star explains that she believed she was short, fat and ugly when she was younger and that meant that she had to learn how to deal with people and situations rather than cruise by on her looks. She said that she had to rely on her intelligence and people skills instead, and this is what helped her develop her famous personality. While she might think that's it's her lack of good looks that helped her develop her sharp tongue, it's pretty obvious that Sharon was keen to make the most of her appearance as soon as she could afford to and no one can say it hasn't worked for her!
