Sharon Osbourne is out of ‘The Talk’
“The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home. As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace,” CBS stated in a declaration launched to CNN. “We also did not find any evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blindsided any of the hosts.”
CNN has actually connected to an agent for Osbourne for remark.
Morgan left his job on ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” after claims that unfavorable remarks he made following Prince Harry and Meghan’s interview with media magnate Oprah Winfrey were rooted in bigotry.
Osbourne required Underwood present circumstances of when Morgan had actually been racist and was noticeably distressed throughout the exchange.
Osbourne later on tweeted an apology, stating she “panicked,” “felt blindsided” and after that “got defensive” throughout her discussion with Underwood.
Following the episode, CBS revealed an internal evaluation would occur and the program went on a momentary production hiatus.
Soon afterwards, in a story composed by reporter Yashar Ali, previous “Talk” co-host Leah Remini, who spoke on the record in the piece, and a variety of unnamed sources, implicated Osbourne of utilizing racist and homophobic language in the past when discussing her coworkers.
CNN did not individually confirm the claims, however a representative for Remini verified the precision of her declarations as reported by Ali to CNN and decreased more remark.
Osbourne’s representative Howard Bragman contested the claims
“The only thing worse than a disgruntled former employee is a disgruntled former talk show host,” he stated in a declaration to CNN. “For 11 years Sharon has been kind, collegial and friendly with her hosts as evidenced by throwingthem parties, inviting them to her home in the UK and other gestures of kindness too many to name. Sharon is disappointed but unfazed and hardly surprised by the lies, the recasting of history and the bitterness coming out at this moment.”
“I am not a racist and if you can’t have a go at your friend who happens to be Black, does that make me racist because I said certain things to my friend, but I said them on camera?” Osbourne stated. “I will keep on apologizing to Sheryl, even if I decide not to go back, I will still keep apologizing to Sheryl.”
Osbourne was the only staying initial cast member of “The Talk” which debuted in 2010.
