Through the years ABC’s “The View” have had many explosive fights on camera with co-hosts and guests and never has ABC shut the production down. Some of the cast members and staff are calling the set of “The Talk”toxic. So there is a BIG investigation over at CBS’s “The Talk” with Sharon Osbourne at the center of this firestorm. The controversy surrounds Osbourne 68, defending her friend Piers Morgan who was one of the host of “Good Morning Britain”. Morgan 55, was incensed over the Winfrey interview of Meghan and Harry went in deep. He accused Meghan of spewing “vile destructive self-serving nonsense,” spreading “race-baiting propaganda,” and stating, “I don’t believe a word she says, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report.” Morgan was challenged by black co-host who reminded him of his racist attacks on Markle and Morgan stormed off the set.
Bitter Much?In a Daily Mail column dated Dec. 4, 2018, wherein Piers branded Meghan “a ruthless social climbing actress,” Morgan recounted how he’d struck up a DM relationship with Meghan a few years back, exchanging pleasantries via Twitter. Then, in June 2016, Morgan described how Meghan said she was in London and wanted to meet up, so Morgan suggested his local pub in Kensington. After 90 minutes of pub talk, Morgan wrote that Meghan left him for a dinner with friends and never spoke to him again. “I’d been ghosted,” he wrote. (Morgan was married at the time.) Osborne defended her friend Piers on “The Talk”. Sheryl Underwood and Elaine Welteroth, both Black women, on why she would support someone who made racist comments. Osborne asked Underwood to educate” her on how Morgan’s comments were racist.saying, it should be me.” Underwood’s approach to Osborne and tone won the day. Many people were angry at Osbornes aggression. Osbourne told Variety ,she was “blindsided” by the questions about Morgan, that she was “stunned by what I was being asked and not prepared,” and that “the showrunners told me it came from executives to do this to me.” An insider said, “Everyone knew there was going to be a discussion. Sharon was already hyper-emotional, and she was expecting cover from Sheryl, and then she felt attacked. She blames Sheryl. In the post-show meeting, she screamed, ‘I’m getting my lawyers!’ ”CBS announced it was investigating the exchange after Osbourne dropped the “F bomb” twice, including yelling, “I can’t be racist. I’m a [bleeping] Jew.” Current co-host Elaine Welteroth told Page Six, that she and her hairstylist have complained there is an alleged “racially insensitive and hostile environment” on the show.
“Tweets Never Die”Last Friday, Osbourne issued a lengthy apology on Twitter. In the last few days tweets have emerged. First season co-host Holly Robinson Peete, tweeted Osbourne allegedly complained that she was “ghetto” and implieing Osbourne was the reason she was fired. Former co-host Leah Remini tweeted back in 2012 in which the actress mentions Osbourne using the racialized term to describe her and Robinson Peete. In refererce to co-host Joan Chen. Remini recalled Osbourne saying during the shows first season “I mean, who the fuck does slanty eyes think she is? She shouldn’t be pillow-talking with our boss” referring to Chen and her husband, Les Moonves, who was at the head of CBS at the time. Journalist Yashar Ali posted a story on Tuesday saying that Osbourne, wife of rock star Ozzy Osbourne who came to fame during MTV’s series about the family, has a history of making culturally offensive and bullying comments. She also made claims, which were backed up my multiple anonymous sources, that Osbourne referred to Gilbert (The Talk’s creator and executive producer in addition to former co-host), who is a lesbian, as “pussy licker” and “fish eater.” Osbourne allegedly added of Gilbert, “Why won’t the pussy licker do anything about the wonton?” and “Why won’t the fish-eater be part of this discussion? She’s the fucking executive! Users also pointed to a video clip of Osbourne in 2018 saying that Meghan Markle “ain’t Black” because “she doesn’t look Black.”
Why now? If Sharon Osborne was such a terror and said all of those despicable things through the years, how was she allowed to keep her job? Why was it necessary for CBS to shut down The Talk? CBS said the show is expected back on the air next Tuesday. The investigation comes after years of other high-profile scandals involving toxic work environment and racial allegations at the network.
