The big 6-0 is a number that scares many people, but not Sharon Osbourne, whose milestone birthday was celebrated in an episode of The Talk that will air on Tuesday, Oct. 9.
“With every age there’s a down and a plus. You get wisdom, you get inner strength, you get empowered. I’m 60 and I’m healthy and I’m happy and I’m not going to waste it worrying,” Osbourne told PEOPLE after taping the show.
As a cancer survivor, Osbourne also confesses, “I never thought I’d get here, let alone everything else. My life now is a bonus, really.”
For the episode, the Osbourne matriarch was joined on-air by her rocker husband Ozzy Osbourne, her daughter Kelly Osbourneand friend Nick Cannon. Her son Jack Osbourne, Elton John, Mariah Carey, Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx all sent video birthday wishes, while Ace of Cakes star Duff Goldman made a cake in the likeness of Osbourne’s beloved Pomeranian Bella.
