Carrie Ann Inaba has asked fans to send their prayers after they learned Ozzy Osbourne has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
The “Dancing With the Stars” judge took to Instagram to ask her followers to keep Osbourne, his wife Sharon Osbourne and the rest of the Osbourne family in their prayers after the rocker contracted the new coronavirus.
Annaba wrote in her Instagram Stories on April 28, 2022: “Please keep @ozzyosbourne, sharonosbourne and the entire Osbourne family in your prayers. Sending lots of love to your family Sharon and Ozzy. Prayers for a full recovery and good health.”
Annaba added a series of prayer hands emojis and included a screenshot of Sharon sharing the news during an interview on Talk TV.

Sharon was so emotional sharing her husband’s diagnosis
Sharon revealed in an interview with “Talk TV” that her husband had recently been diagnosed with the condition. She said he’s “fine” so far, but she will be leaving TalkTV to go home and take care of her husband while he battles the virus.
“I’m so worried about Ozzy now. We’ve been two years without him getting COVID, so lucky for Ozzy he’s got it now,” he said, getting emotional.
Sharon was just starting out on “TalkTV” but he’s taking time off to be with Ozzy. She believes she will be able to get it back in a week and has promised to get back on her show once that happens.
Many celebrities have sent their good wishes to Osbournes in the comments section of the mail, including Inaba.
“Praying for all of you, my dear friend…so much love,” the DWTS judge wrote.
“I love you dear. Paula Abdul adds, I am sending you love.
“I love you, Ozzy and family. Actress Juliette Lewis commented.
“I’m praying for you,” read a comment from Amanda Kloots.
Inaba became close friends with Sharon while the two were on ‘The Talk’
Annaba developed a strong relationship with Sharon while the two worked on “The Talk” together.
In 2021, Inaba is taking a break from the show to focus on his “well-being,” according to the Deadline website. Four months later, he announced his departure.
“I have enjoyed my time on The Talk as co-host and curator, and am grateful for the opportunity to develop with the entire Talk family and truly connect with viewers on such a personal level. I will miss The Talk, but I am excited for the next chapter for both myself and the show.”
Osbourne has been on “The Talk” for three seasons. A month before his departure, the network announced that he would be leaving the show, according to The Hollywood Reporter. His decision came after he defended Piers Morgan when he called Meghan Markle a liar on his ITV show.
“Teach me, tell me when you hear him say racist things. I’m so sorry I’m about to be put in the electric chair because I have a friend who a lot of people think is racist, so does that make me racist?” Sharon said on the show.
In March 2022, TMZ confirmed that Sharon will join TalkTV, a UK-based program that has also given Morgan a new home.
