American TV Host Sharon Osbourne Exits Show After Row On Piers Morgan & Meghan Markle
American Talk show host Sharon Osbourne has left CBS’s “The Talk” following on-air disagreement with fellow talk show host Sheryl Underwood over Piers Morgan, Meghan Markle and racial issues.
Osbourne had declared her support for former GMB host Piers Morgan, saying she was his friend and didn’t think he was racist. The duo — she and Underwood— got into a heated argument that led the show to take a break from airing.
CBS has now released a statement to say Osbourne’s outburst was not in line with their culture and values.
“Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave ‘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.”
“We also did not find any evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blindsided any of the hosts. At the same time, we acknowledge the Network and Studio teams, as well as the showrunners, are accountable for what happened during that broadcast as it was clear the co-hosts were not properly prepared by the staff for a complex and sensitive discussion involving race,” the release continued.
The show is expected to resume on Monday, April 12, 2021.

During the now-famous broadcast, Sharon Osbourne demanded that her co-host Sheryl Underwood show her instances where Piers Morgan was racist.
Morgan had left Good Morning Britain after he was criticised for saying he didn’t believe “a word” of Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
A visibly Osbourne said she’d been labelled racist for supporting Piers Morgan. She also warned the other ladies not to dare cry but provide her with answers.

Osbourne later tweeted an apology, saying she “panicked,” “felt blindsided” and then “got defensive” during her conversation with Underwood.
“The Talk” took a break off air and CBS shared they would be conducting an internal review.
Sharon Osbourne is married to heavy metal icon Ozzy Osbourne and they share two children together. Osbourne, 68, rose to fame with her family reality show “The Osbournes”. She has been on “The Talk” since it debuted in 2010.
