Her co-hosts spoke on her behalf at the top of the show.
"Before we get started, as you can see Sharon is not here today. There were many tabloid headlines this past weekend about her and Ozzy -- rumors and speculation that they have split up after 34 years of marriage," Julie Chen told viewers. "Sharon, understandably, took today off. We are sending all of our love to her and her family. We ask you to do the same."
Published reports say Sharon believes that the heavy metal legend was having an affair, supposedly with 45-year-old hairdresser, Michelle Pugh. She could not be reached for comment.
Ozzy has reportedly moved out of the family's $10 million mansion.
Just two months ago, Sharon shocked everyone when she dropped a bombshell that he once cheated with two nannies.
