Rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne has made a New Year's resolution to be nicer to people - because she's sick of being sued.

The outspoken wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne has been flooded with lawsuits over the many negative comments she's made about others, and she's now decided it's time to put her badmouthing to an end.

She says, "My entire life I have spent being sued. All the money I make goes on lawyers - I swear to you! All the profit that the Osbournes made last year - lawyers. Everything - lawyers.

"We keep them all alive in this town because I get sued all the time."
