“The Talk” Is Taking Another Week Off As They Figure Out What To Do With Sharon Osbourne

March 21, 2021 / Posted by:

And by “figure out what to do,” I mean that producers and executives are researching the strongest earplugs on the market because they’re going to need some to protect their hearing from Sharon Osbourne letting out a high-pitched screech when they fire her.

It’s been about a week-and-a-half since Sharon Osbourne became the Meghan McCain of The Talk, complete with an ensemble courtesy of Nordstrom’s line of clown clothes, when she lost it after her co-hosts, Sheryl Underwood and Elaine Welteroth, questioned her for supporting her friend Piers Morgan as he’s accused of racist harassment. Sharon went into full defensive mode, became the victim, cried at Sheryl to “educate” her, and actually said to Sheryl,” And don’t try and cry because if anyone should be crying, it should be me!The Talk immediately went on hiatus to “investigate” that mess, and well, I’ve got sad news for the two people who actually watch that show. The Talk is taking another week off to deal with the problem that is Sharon Osbourne.

After Sharon’s messy moment, she apologized for being defensive and said she’s still learning and will listen and do better. Well, that lasted all of one second. Sharon hasn’t been able to “listen” because she’s been running her mouth about what a victim she is. While talking to Entertainment Tonight, Sharon nailed herself to the cross, and in between yelling at her daughter Kelly to hold that cross sturdy, she accused the producers of The Talk of setting her up and claimed that Sheryl and Elaine had questions about Piers written on their cards but she didn’t. If Sharon was set up, she took the bait AND HOW. Sharon’s shitty handling of that situation led to former co-host, Holly Robinson Peete, tweeting that Sharon once said she was “too ghetto” for the show. Leah Remini, who is also a former co-host of The Talk, then claimed that Sharon called her past co-host, Julie Chenwonton” and “slanty eyes.” Sharon denied both Holly and Leah’s claims.

In her interview with ET, Sharon went on about how she was The Talk’ssacrificial lamb” and thinks that her days on the show are over. Since The Talk hasn’t gotten attention like this in the history of The Talk, I’d expect producers to keep Sharon on and milk that fuckery for all its worth. But it looks like Sharon is right and she’s about to get pink-slipped because Deadline reports that The Talk’s break will last longer:

With the controversy ignited by last Wednesday’s episode of The Talk showing no signs of subsiding, the show’s unplanned hiatus is getting longer. I hear The Talk team tonight were informed that the show will remain dark at least through next week. No return date has been set.

The Talk was originally put on hiatus last Sunday for two days. The break was then extended, and The Talk was scheduled to come back with live shows this coming Tuesday, March 22.

Sheryl Underwood recently said on her podcast that she thought that she and Sharon were going to have an interesting and great conversation about race, but then things went left and turned out no-so-great. But Sheryl is over it, saying “As soon as the yelling and the screaming happened, it was already forgiven.”

So we’ll see if Sharon gets shit-canned or not, but in the meantime, she’s got Cyndi Lauper’s support:

On, Cyndi, we’ve already heard Sharon out and what we mostly heard is her *crying in victim*. But well, the good news for Sharon is that if she’s fired, that leaves more time in the day for her to fuck on Ozzy Osbourne. And yes, I’ll immediately start working on my apology for once again putting that image in your head.
