Despite the negativity that has followed Sharon Osbourne in the last few weeks, she remains upbeat. On Wednesday, the former co-host of “The Talk” shared a Tik Tok clip to her Instagram account. In the clip, someone takes a video of a dog getting groomed and adorably smiling. Osbourne offered her followers advice in the caption, writing, “A Friendly Reminder to be Friendly.”
Sharon Osbourne and Former Co-Host From ‘The Talk’ Share Friendly Exchange
Someone who offered Osbourne that friendliness is her former colleague from “The Talk,” Amanda Kloots. Recently, Osbourne shared a series of messages she received from Kloots. Earlier in the month, 39-year-old Kloots reached out to her former co-host via her Instagram Story. She posted a photo of her son Elvis pouring a cup of tea.
Kloots captioned the sweet photo, writing, “Ready for our tea party @Sharonosbourne. I don’t know where he learned how to do this???” Osbourne responded to Kloots: “A boy after my own [heart.] Come over for a spot of [tea.]” While the two remain on good terms despite the fallout, Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood can’t say the same.
Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood’s Heated Debate
During the episode in early March, Osbourne defended her position to support her longtime friend Piers Morgan and his defamatory comments against Meghan Markle. As a result, Underwood and Osbourne got into a heated on-air debate.
“Why is it that because I supported a longtime friend and work colleague for years, people go ‘well you must be racist because he’s racist,” Osbourne questioned Underwood during the episode.
Underwood argued that Morgan displayed “racial implications with the way he spoke about Meghan” when he appeared on “The Talk.” Underwood explained, “It’s not the exact words of racism it’s the implication and the reaction to it. To not want to address that because she is a Black woman and to try to dismiss it, that’s what makes it racist.
“But right now I’m talking to a woman that is my friend and I don’t want anybody here to watch this and say we’re attacking you for being racist.” Visibly emotional, Osbourne rolled her eyes before saying: “I think it’s too late. I think that seed’s already sewn.”
The network announced that Osbourne would be leaving “The Talk” after 11 years on March 26. “Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave ‘The Talk,'” the network said in a statement. “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.”
