While on BBC’s Why Would I Lie To You, Mrs. Osbourne shared that she let the assistant go for not having a sense of humor about the fire.
She and her husband lit a candle the couple had received for Christmas, went up to bed and were later woken up by an alarm. Ozzy went to go check it out and while he was in the living room began calling for Sharon to help him.
His arm was on fire.
Sharon managed to get her husband outside and in a fountain to put the fire out. During all this, the assistant was sleeping in the guesthouse.
“So I go into the guest house, and he’s going, ‘Everything all right,'” she recalls. “And I’m like, “No! House is on fire! Get out! Help! Go in, get the paintings out… There were dogs, and I said “You must go in to find the dogs.”
When the ambulance arrived, after finding the dogs, the assistant received an oxygen mask, but Sharon didn’t quite agree with that choice.
“So then I said to him, ‘How very dare you! You work here and you get more paintings out right now,'” she continues. “And I took the mask and I put it on my dog.”
A few days later, Sharon and Ozzy were laughing about the situation when the assistant joined them still upset about what happened.
“We were laughing and laughing, and [the assistant] goes, ‘I don’t see what’s funny about any of this.’ And he said, ‘I think I’m gonna have damaged lungs,'” Sharon says. “I mean, please. Then I said, ‘If you don’t think that’s funny, do you think this is funny?’ And he goes, ‘What?’ I said, ‘You’re fired.'”

Even though she found a way to make light of the situation, some Twitter users weren’t as pleased with the outcome.
If Sharon Osbourne admits this and thinks it’s funny than I can only imagine the things she’s done and won’t admit to. I hope now that she’s admitted to it her former assistant can sue the shit out of her. I wouldn’t do that to my worst enemy. It’s just wrong on so many levels. https://t.co/gXSOfVCVX3

Fact: @MrsSOsbourne is a fucking monster.
God, I’m with the assistant on this one! Did his job, saved the fucking paintings and her dogs. She goes ahead and tries get him killed out of entitled pettiness, has him fired for making a valid point, and have the audacity to laugh https://t.co/pZ6TXNHs4p

She risks her employees life for her material objects then disposes of him like trash. This is why I will never be a personal assistant again! Some people really think that being a boss means treating people like dirt. https://t.co/dsLmeCGM2C
