Sheryl Underwood has broken her silence on Sharon Osbourne‘s shocking outburst on The Talk.
As reported, the 68-year-old came under fire and brimstone when she was quizzed about her support for Piers Morgan, who sensationally “left” his role on Good Morning Britain after making remarks about Meghan Markle that many believe to be rooted in racism.
Osbourne’s defensive stance during the segment (which included her demanding that Underwood not cry because she is the one “who should be crying”) went viral.
Now Underwood is speaking up and out. Her words, which came during an interview with Steve Harvey, below…
“I got calls from all over the world from people that I was wondering, ‘How did you find me? How do you know me?’ I was getting prayers, I was getting love.
And I want people to know this, I believe that God was telling me, ‘I have a plan for you. I am about to pour down a blessing upon you. I just need to know, are you ready because you will face this again?’
I just wanted to be a better example for people that are working just a regular old job, that had to compose themselves.
We are the only race of people that carry the race wherever we go, and we’re responsible for that. And I want to thank everybody all over the world in social media, everybody in radio, television, news, everywhere, everybody that reached out.
What power you had to make me understand you have matured Sheryl Underwood. You have matured. Because I could have messed it up, couldn’t I? I could have messed it up.”
Underwood elaborated on her podcast, saying:
“I thought we were having a conversation like we normally do. But then I got a feeling that, wait a minute, this ain’t what it usually is. I also got another feeling of, okay, Sheryl, this is time for you to step up into the leadership position … this is time for you to show what you’re made of, and in a personal way. No matter what somebody says about you, I can show you something better than I can tell you.”
Ms. Underwood handled herself impeccably during the segment and after.
