[ # ] Sharon Osbourne talked herself out of The Talk
March 27th, 2021 under Talk Shows, The Osbournes
Sharon Osbourne had a rough March, and it is ending with her leaving The Talk. A show she has called home for the last 11 years.

Osbourne opted to defend her friend Piers Morgan on Twitter when no one would. Then the next day, she was asked to do it again on the daytime talk show. She played the victim and put down her co-hosts. Needless to say, it didn’t go over well with Sheryl Underwood and Elaine Welteroth.

CBS decided to investigate the debate after Welteroth reportedly complain to HR about the incident. She is allegedly not the only one, so did other people who work and worked on the show. So after two weeks, CBS concluded their investigation.

“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 statement went on. “During this week’s hiatus, we are coordinating workshops, listening sessions and training about equity, inclusion and cultural awareness for the hosts, producers and crew. Going forward, we are identifying plans to enhance the producing staff and producing procedures to better serve the hosts, the production and, ultimately, our viewers.”

Will the viewers tune out? Only time will tell. But I doubt it. Even though people say they will, they never do.
