Sharon Osbourne returned to a cheering audience Tuesday after disappearing from the show following rumors of a split with her husband, Ozzy Osbourne.

On Tuesday, she confirmed rumors that she and her husband have been facing marital troubles after she reportedly learned that her husband was having an affair with a hairstylist.

Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne have been married since 1982.

“I’ve been avoiding looking at any pictures or reading anything,” said Sharon. “I don’t need to read about it or and see about it because it’s like putting salt in a wound. So I don’t need to.”

On Tuesday, she thanked her fans for their support.

“I honestly cannot thank people enough for their backing me. For saying they love me. For everybody here at my home, supporting me, sending me messages of love,” she continued. “I honestly am empowered and I have found this inner strength and I’m like right. OK. What’s next?”

She said she’s not sure what’s next in their marriage. She has considered the possibility of divorce.

“It’s right for me because I honestly at this point today have no idea what I’m going to be doing with the rest of my life,” said Sharon. “Because I’m 63 years of age and I can’t keep living like this.”
