That Sharon Osbourne is one tough kooky. MTV president Van Toffler reveals in the current issue of Newsweek that Ozzy's bride was a real handful during recent negotiations for a second season of the network's reality smash demanding everything from a new house to free psychotherapy for her dogs (she got neither). "What you see on television, that's the way Sharon is," he says. "She is affectionate and loving one moment, and the next she's calling you every name under the sun. It was the most trying negotiation we've been through." Well, in the end, it all worked out: Season No. 2 kicks off this fall and there's talk that one of the 20 new episodes will be shot live.
