She "collapsed from mental and physical fatigue" Osbourne's rep told People.

"Sharon has been advised and has agreed to take a month hiatus to recover fully from these recent events," her rep said. "Sharon would like to thank everyone at The Talk for granting her this time off and to all friends, family and others for their incredible support."

The co-host was hospitalized earlier this year for pneumonia and her doctors report that she is battling "extreme exhaustion."
