‘The Talk’ Extends Hiatus As Sharon Osbourne Complaints Pile Up

Published: Tuesday 16th Mar 2021 by Sam

‘The Talk’ is turning down the volume for another week.

In the wake of Sharon Osbourne‘s shocking eruption during a race debate with Sheryl Underwood on March 10, bosses have taken the show off-air as they launched an investigation.

It appears the probe centers on the 68-year-old’s defense of Piers Morgan‘s widely-condemned comments about race in the wake of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Originally set to return tomorrow (March 17), it’s been confirmed that no live shows will air until March 23.

As for why? It appears the growing discourse around Osbourne from former co-workers is proving difficult to ignore.

Full story below…

A statement from the show’s network said:

“CBS is committed to a diverse, inclusive and respectful workplace across all of our productions. We’re also very mindful of the important concerns expressed and discussions taking place regarding events on The Talk. This includes a process where all voices are heard, claims are investigated and appropriate action is taken where necessary. The show will extend its production hiatus until next Tuesday as we continue to review these issues.”

Voices that have spoken up include ex ‘Talk’ co-host Holly Robinson Pete, who says Osbourne called her “ghetto” before she was let go from the show. Also, today a new account alleges Osbourne used racist language on set about Julie Chen and includes comment from former co-host Leah Remini.

A statement from Osbourne’s rep read:

“The only thing worse than a disgruntled former employee is a disgruntled former talk show host. For 11 years Sharon has been kind, collegial and friendly with her hosts as evidenced by throwing them parties, inviting them to her home in the U.K. 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. She will survive this, as she always has, and her heart will remain open and good because she refuses to let others take her down. She thanks her family, friends and fans for standing by her and knowing her true nature.”

All comes after Osbourne apologized to the Black community, only to double down and say she felt “blindsided” and like a “lamb out for slaughter.”

      What did Sharon say that was racist for you to call her a “racist pig”?

    If they let Sharon go, Sheryl will bear the brunt of it even though she’s not the one in the wrong. I wouldn’t be surprised if she gets some other offer and takes it.

    The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree

    Remember when Kelly Osbourne was and The View and said why are we putting up a wall to keep Mexicans out because who is going to clean their toilets…

    They shouldn’t go on hiatus, they should just fire her!
