On Wednesday, a rep for Ozzy Osbourne revealed he's been suffering from sex addiction over the last six years. Now, Sharon Osbourne is speaking out about the news.

The rocker's wife opened up on The Talk Wednesday, getting emotional while explaining her husband's current state and admitting it's all a little "embarrassing."

"He's been an outpatient for sex addiction for the last three months," she told the panel of hosts as tears welled up in her eyes. "And after the tour—he's starting his summer tour with Black Sabbath—after the tour he goes into in patient for three months. He's working at it. It's hard because it affects the whole family. And it's quite embarrassing to talk about."

She continued, "Somehow drugs and drink is more acceptable, but when it's somebody that has a sex addiction it's embarrassing. [But] I'm proud that he's come out and admitted it finally."

Still, she can't help but admit that the whole thing has been difficult to deal with. "You know it's  very, very, hard. It's every person that comes into the room, you think, 'Don't come in! He's here!'" She said, yet still able to joke, "I think he should call Tiger Woods for some advice!"

The rest of the panel promised Sharon she has nothing to feel embarrassed about, reminding her that it's no reflection on her.

Sharon thanked them, saying, "I honestly don't know what I would do without everybody here for the support. It's amazing." She continued, "It's really hard to kind of sit here and you think it's happening to somebody else but it's actually happening to you and to happen at this far in a relationship and it's been, you know, it's been going on for at least six years."

At that point, she kindly requested to change the subject.

Meanwhile, after splitting up in May, Sharon and Ozzy's 33-year marriage is "back on track." However, they continue sorting out their marital issues.

The rocker's affair with celebrity hairstylist Michelle Pugh was thought to be the driving factor in the split. Now Pugh is speaking out about their 4-year relationship to People magazine, an experience she recalls, "made me feel like the most beautiful and worshiped woman in the world." 

And while Pugh maintains the pair connected on an "emotional level" through their "shared passions," a rep for Osbourne reveals otherwise. 

"Over the last six years, Ozzy Osbourne has been dealing with a sex addiction. He is sorry if Ms. Pugh took their sexual relationship out of context," a rep for the singer told the mag. "He would like to apologize to the other women he has been having sexual relationships with. Out of the bad comes good. Since his relationship with Ms. Pugh was exposed, Ozzy has gone into intense therapy. Ozzy is mortified at what his behavior has done to his family. He thanks God that his incredible wife Sharon is at his side to support him."
