LONDON (AP) — Sharon Osbourne says she had a double mastectomy after learning she carries a gene that increases the risk of developing breast cancer.

Osbourne told Hello! magazine that "I didn't want to live the rest of my life with that shadow hanging over me."

The 60-year-old "America's Got Talent" judge, who had colon cancer a decade ago, said that without the surgery, "the odds are not in my favor."

She added: "It's not 'pity me,' it's a decision I made that's got rid of this weight that I was carrying around."

The magazine went on sale Monday.

Osbourne, husband Ozzy and children Jack and Kelly became rock's most famous clan thanks to reality show "The Osbournes" a decade ago.

Jack Osbourne, 26, was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

How very, very insensitive.....completely ignore breast cancer to toot your own cause. Shame on you. Double shame on you. If I showed up at your funeral, would you like me to sell Girl Scout cookies? You need to get down on your knees and apologize to all breast cancer survivors.

500 retired military generals bought an ad endorsing Mitt Romney for president today in a Washington DC newspaper (the Washington Times).

I write this here because some of you who are interested in Sharon O's mastectomy would never, ever know this if I didn't.

Now, aren't you glad you know how much our heroes dislike this current president?
thank you

this was too funny. Although I'm interested in this article, I'm also highly interested in your post. I am going to google it now.

I can't wait to cast my vote for Mitt Romney tomorrow.
