Despite living like The Osbournes...

Shock-rocker Marilyn Manson has turned down a reality TV series with his wife Dita Von Teese, despite their home-llife resembling that of The Osbournes.

TV producers were keen to create the kind of hit MTV enjoyed with satanic singer Ozzy Osbourne and his family by featuring the similarly eccentric couple – but model Von Teese unfortunately decided she wanted to protect her modesty.

She explains, “I guess our life is a little bit like what you'd imagine, but then our stage personas are not far from what we are like in real life. It's a madhouse like The Osbournes. For a start, I'm always walking around naked or in a negligee.

“We've been approached for a show, but we'd never do it.”
