Sharon Osbourne Beats Cancer

Spokesperson says she has made a "full recovery"

April 2, 2003 12:00 AM ET

After battling colon cancer very publicly for months, Sharon Osbourne has beaten the disease. "Sharon has finished her cancer treatments and has made a full recovery," her spokesperson told Rolling Stone today.

The good news comes only two weeks after Sharon was overcome by heat exhaustion and had to leave a party where husband Ozzy was performing, leading to speculation that her health had taken a turn for the worse.

The cancer's initial diagnosis forced the cancellation of the first two dates of Ozzfest last July. Sharon's chemotherapy treatment and her family's struggle to cope with her illness were documented on the second season of MTV's reality show The Osbournes.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
