Sharon Osbourne's Paris rant

Sharon Osbourne has branded Paris Hilton talentless.
The 'America's Got Talent' judge says the socialite only became famous because the "timing was right" - and believes Paris would agree with her appraisal.
She said: "You've got your superstars. You've got your celebrities. And then you've got your people who I call 'infamous', like Paris Hilton, who I know.
"She's got a look that a lot of younger girls liked and copied but she has no talent. I'm sure Paris would tell you that herself. The timing was right for her. A lot of younger women looked up to her.
"She's a very sweet, nice girl. But that's it. Then you put a full stop. It's over."
Sharon - who starred in fly-on-the-wall show 'The Osbournes' with rocker husband Ozzy and her children Jack and Kelly - also hit out at "shameless" reality TV stars.
She added to Parade.com: "The number of reality shows is terrible isn't it? Do you know what? It's like I said to Ozzy, 'People will just have go get over it.' I haven't seen most of them. I'll watch maybe five minutes of something and check it out.
"I'm totally amazed at how shameless people are. They will repeat something that's been done over and over again and act as if it's unique.
"I think that the younger generation thinks all they have to do is get on TV and act a bit crazy and things will happen for them.
"They've got it wrong because you need to have a talent to get really famous."
