Sharon Osbourne, former co-host of “The Talk” who was let go after defending journalist Piers Morgan from racism allegations, is not pulling her punches any longer.
She decided to clear the air, discussing two of the people who have wronged her in her lifetime: Don Lemon and Joy Behar.
Lemon has recently been removed from his CNN primetime television slot and relegated to a morning show instead. He covered the controversy which eventually led to Osbourne’s termination, claiming he was “enraged” by her telling fellow co-host Sheryl Underwood not to cry during a conversation that got intense. Instead of asking Osbourne for a quote or an explanation, Lemon brought on Jemele Hill and the duo proceeded to lambast her on race.
“He turned against me. He never called for a quote. He never called for his statement, and he turned against me. And I was a big fan of his,” Osbourne explained.
“He used to do the New Year’s Eve show, and he would get drunk and he’d be in clubs, and I thought he was a hoot. I really did. But, I just thought, ‘How ignorant of you not to ask the other side,’ because that’s your job. That’s what you’re meant to do. So, I thought, ‘I’m not watching you on New Year’s Eve again.’”
But it wasn’t just Lemon that Osbourne had beef with.
“The View” co-host Joy Behar apparently insulted Osbourne’s wedding ring at a “social function” and she wouldn’t soon forget it.
“I met [Joy] once at a social function and she picked up my hand and looked at my wedding ring and said, ‘Oh, my God that’s gaudy,’” she recalled, also noting that journalist and “View” founder Barbara Walters was within earshot at the time.
“I wanted to say, ‘Jealous,’ but I didn’t, I held it back,” Osbourne noted. “I just think that she’s a bit cray-cray.”
The former talk show host also joked about how she would react to being a co-host on “The View.”
“Can you imagine me on ‘The View?’ I’d be like, ‘You shut up, you shut up,’” she quipped.
On Tuesday, Osbourne discussed her run-in with cancel culture and how it shaped her life.
“I was this lamb that was slaughtered that morning and CBS denied responsibility on the news,” she said during her Fox Nation docuseries titled “Sharon Osbourne: To Hell and Back.”
The incident arose when Osbourne had the audacity to say Piers Morgan isn’t a racist after his criticisms of Meghan Markle. She explained how her friends and fellow co-hosts turned on her almost immediately.
“I was pissed off and angry and at the same time hurt with my co-host, because especially one of the ladies I thought was a friend of mine, and I sat next to her ten and a half years and I thought she was my friend,” she lamented. “They said he was a racist but then I said, ‘Where? What has he written, what has he ever said that was racist?’ And they couldn’t come up with anything and their excuse was, because Meghan Markle was a woman of color. He must be a racist to say she was lying. Only a racist would do that.”
