[ # ] Sheryl Underwood addresses Sharon Osbourne’s departure on The Talk
April 12th, 2021 under CBS, Talk Shows, The Osbournes

Today, The Talk does its first live episode in over a month. They went on hiatus because the hosts got into a heated discussion over race issues. The discussion was so heated that Sharon Osbourne left the show.

During their first episode back on CBS this afternoon, they will address the situation. “It’s time for an episode of ‘The Talk’ that will be unlike any other we’ve had before.” Underwood continued with, “As you may know, during our break, Sharon decided to leave ‘The Talk.’ We need to process the events of that day and what happened since, so we can get to the healing. Over the next hour, we will honestly discuss what occurred and explore some of our feelings. And we’ll also show you how anyone can become more comfortable discussing important issues and having difficult conversations. By the end of the hour, we want everyone to feel empowered and ready to move forward.”

Hopefully, they will get people talking and in a good way. We need to listen as well as talk. We seem to forget that. We think we are the only ones who know what we are talking about, and that is not always the case. In my case, it is. I am always right.

UPDATE: The Talk’s Elaine Welteroth also commented about what happened on March 10. She did not hold back.

“I think when you go back and watch what happened in that episode, you will see two Black women walking the same tightrope that Black women are walking every single day in the workplace,” Welteroth said. “As Sheryl said, we knew we had to stay composed in that situation, even in the face of someone who was A, not listening, and B, who went off the rails into disrespect when we were maintaining our respect within the context of this very complex, charged, emotional conversation.”

Welteroth went on to say this is the first time that she was able to address the situation publicly because of the investigation that was going on due to the heated discussion. She calmly and eloquently expressed herself and was able to get her point across.

UPDATE 2: To see how Sharon Osbourne responded, then
