Following a mysterious six-week absence from The Talk in May 2015, the 63-year-old television personality finally publicly addressed what kept her away from the show she's co-hosted for years. At the time of the hiatus, her rep told E! News Osbourne was suffering from "extreme exhaustion" and had collapsed from "mental and physical fatigue."
"I had a complete, utter breakdown," Osbourne said of last year's incident during Monday's episode. "I woke up in Cedars-Sinai Hospital and, for probably three days, I knew nothing. I couldn't think, I couldn't talk. I could do nothing. My brain just shut down on me," she described.
As for the root of the breakdown, Osbourne attributed it to trying to be Superwoman.
"I was doing too much of everything, thinking that I'm Superwoman. I'm so strong. I can handle this. I can handle that—and it just fused my brain," she continued. At the time of the breakdown, Osbourne was juggling negotiations for her husband Ozzy Osbourne's tour, sponsorship work and world travel—a list of duties that ultimately overwhelmed her.
"I just couldn't cope with anything and my family put me into a facility," she said.
