Elaine Welteroth Spoke Out After Audio Leaked Of Her Consoling Sharon Osbourne After That Fight On “The Talk”
That March 10 fight on The Talk lives on. During that episode, Sharon Osbourne decided to defend her good friend Piers Morgan when co-host Sheryl Underwood was calling out what she considered racist undertones of his constant critiques of Meghan Markle. The fight wound up costing Sharon her job and she claimed it was a hit job set up by producers. Audio recently leaked in which co-host Elaine Welteroth sort of co-signed Sharon’s theory by suggesting she too thought the conversation producers wanted them to have was going to go South. Sure did! Elaine has now called out the recording and says it does not “absolve responsibility” of certain people’s actions.
It was announced last week that Sharon Osbourne, the last OG cast member of The Talk, was pretty much fired from the show for losing it on her co-host Sheryl Underwood while defending Piers Morgan. This led to an investigation that put the show on hiatus. And that investigation led to CBS giving Sharon the boot. Obviously, they handed her some cash to walk out the door. And now the rumor is that she was paid up to $10 million.
Brace yourselves, Britain, because Sharon Osbourne could be back inside of you to join forces with her ride-or-die, Piers Morgan, for a show called Racial Issues Today on Rupert Murdoch’s new Fox News-like channel in the UK. Because Sharon is out of a job after she “made the decision to depart” The Talk. That’s how CBS puts it. It’s a very PR-way of saying, “We paid the trick to get the fuck out!” And with that, many are probably saying, “Now who’s ‘too ghetto‘ for the show?”
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.
