Speaking exclusively with Sunday News from his Los Angeles mansion, Ozzy Osbourne, the star of the hit show "The Osbournes", said he'd grown to hate reality TV.

"I'm sick and tired of it," Ozzy said.

"I don't like being on the TV we learned that the hard way with having cameras on us 24 hours a day from "The Osbournes" show.

"It seems that every time I turn on the TV they've got another bunch of celebrities with cameras in their faces following them around for a new show and I can't stand it.

"The only good reality show I can think of now is taking a whole bunch of kids, a wild animal and a bucket of dogshit," he laughs. "That's what I think of the whole thing."

But despite his growing disgust with the star-struck brand of reality TV he pioneered with his wife Sharon and kids Jack and Kelly, Ozzy has again found himself in front of the cameras.

Jack Osbourne has been following his heavy metal father around for a documentary on the legendary rocker.

"I knew nothing about it and I turned around one day and he had a camera on me, so I thought, so be it," Ozzy said.

"My son's like me in that way. He'd rather be behind the camera than in front of it."

So whats the deal with all these "slams" headlines. Howa bout we use a new word. In this case i think it was rather misleading. i would hardly call that a "slam" maybe a "dis" but not a slam.

True, not a slam per se. Any one of these others will do, but definitely not a slam.

animadversion, aspersion, crack, dig, fling, jab, obloquy, potshot, rap, slap, slur, stricture, swipe.

Strangely.He's got a point.Reality television is a bad joke.What's so entertaining about the ordinary lives of ordinary people? It's a sad commentary on what American culture is turning into.
