On the way out. Sharon Osbourne has released a surprising statement one year after leaving The Talk, alleging that the criticism has harmed her career.
Every ‘The Talk’ Host and Why They Left Over the Years
Sharon Osbourne shocking statement“They told me, ‘You’re on indefinite suspension.’ We don’t believe you’ve repented sufficiently. And we’ll determine whether you ever come back,'” the 69-year-old TV personality reflected on being sacked from the CBS daytime series during a recent interview with The Sunday Times. “So, who’s going to make that decision?” I asked. “We can’t tell you,” they said.
Osbourne joined The Talk in 2010, and her contentious exit from the show appears to have hindered the flow of further offers. “My phone was non-existent in terms of my TV career [in America], not a single call.” “Nothing,” she stated flatly. “It never changed in England or Australia.” It seemed as if I had died.”
Following the affair, the former X Factor judge said that she was compelled to employ 24-hour security because “people were claiming they were going to come in the night, cut my neck, cut Ozzy’s throat, cut my dogs’ throats.” I couldn’t stop crying because all I could think about was everything that had happened in my life, and now they were phoning.

Following the scandal, the former X Factor judge said that she was forced to hire 24-hour security because “people were threatening to come in the night, cut my neck, cut Ozzy’s throat, cut my dogs’ necks.” All I could think about was everything that had happened in my life, and now they were calling.
“To anyone of color that I insulted,” Osbourne wrote after the broadcast brawl, “I panicked, felt ambushed, got defensive, and let my fear and anxiety of being accused of being racist take over.”
Former Talk panelists Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini later accused Osbourne of making racially insensitive remarks behind the scenes. While the show was on hiatus, the network conducted an internal inquiry and later announced that the U.K. native would not be returning to the set.
Timeline of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s Relationship
Howard Bragman, Osbourne’s publicist at the time, refuted the charges on her behalf. “Sharon is disappointed, but unfazed,” the statement read. “She will endure this, as she always has, and her heart will stay open and good because she refuses to be brought down by others.” She expresses gratitude to her family, friends, and fans for supporting her and understanding her genuine nature.”
The Osbournes star told Bill Maher in her first interview after being fired from the show that she was “hurt” and “mad” over what happened. In April 2021, she said, “I’ve been called so many things in my life… but a racist is one thing I will not accept.”
Osbourne is still perplexed one year later by what occurs “when people turn on you en masse” in the public glare. “Everyone is afraid of saying anything bad that someone will take and sell,” she said in an interview with The Sunday Times, disclosing that she and her husband, Ozzy Osbourne, were leaving Los Angeles. “That’s no way to live.” I’m not interested. I don’t require it… It’s simply time for us to return home. I’m not sure.
