After a cloud of controversy followed Sharon Osbourne after her departure from “The Talk,” it seems like she’s moved on to sunnier skies.
On Monday, the former co-host of the popular daytime talk show posted a stunning clip of the Los Angeles skyline. “LA giving us her best blue skies today,” she wrote in the caption. In the photo, a carefree Osbourne momentarily removes her mask to flash her followers a beaming smile.
Another Cast Member Exits ‘The Talk’
Just weeks after Osbourne made her abrupt exit from “The Talk,” one of her former co-hosts followed suit. On Monday, Carrie Anne Inaba announced via Twitter that she’d be taking some time off from co-hosting “The Talk.” “I wanted to let you know personally that I have decided to take a leave of absence from ‘The Talk’ to focus on my wellbeing,” she said in a video. “I know you guys understand, health is the most important thing.”
Later in the day, she shared a second clip. “I appreciate your support, I appreciate the love and support for ‘The Talk’ family and I hope to be back soon,” she said. “Take care and I’ll keep you updated. Thank you.”
While the “Dancing with the Stars” judge did not reveal any additional details about her length of absence or medical diagnosis, she has opened up about dealing with Sjögren’s Syndrome, fibromyalgia, Lupus, and other diagnoses.
“I look healthy—and I am really healthy, all things considered—but then I have these incredible sharp pains like today [the hairstylist] was doing my hair and he barely touched me but I thought he burnt me with a curling iron because my body is in a fibromyalgia flare,” she said in a 2019 episode of “The Talk.”
Co-Host Weighs in on the Show’s ‘Evolution’ Since Sharon Osbourne’s Departure
With two longtime cast members off the show, one of their colleagues remains optimistic despite the show’s departures. During an interview, Amanda Kloots opened up about how the show is coping with the absence of two of its longtime co-hosts.
“A lot of times, we look at television shows, and there’s this mask of perfection, and life is not about perfection,” Amanda shared. “It is actually about how you deal with imperfections and learning to thrive in those imperfections and being resilient. So I think that when you watch “The Talk” now, you’re seeing a show that’s evolving and changing and growing. And I think that’s a beautiful thing.”
Kloots, who remains friends with Osbourne, says that Osbourne has been a source of support during her time on the show. She also added that Osbourne supported her when her husband passed away in July of 2020.
