Last Friday, CBS made the exit of Sharon Osbourne from The Talk official.  Now according to a report in Page Six of the New York Post, it appears that Osbourne and her lawyers orchestrated a substantial deal for her following and amid accusations of racist behavior.

Sources told Page Six that Sharon is to receive a $5-10 million dollar payout to leave the show, and that she was able to spin the statement (released to the press last week) that it was her decision to exit the talk show series that she had been a part of it since its premiere. 11 years ago.

Another source revealed that as part of her walking away from the show, Osbourne was able to have the ability to speak freely.  That source shared that Sharon, “still wants to give her side of the story. She has been on that show for 11 years and knows all the secrets.”

Osbourne had been at the epicenter of a firestorm that kept getting fuel added to it, after defending remarks made by her friend, Piers Morgan over the Meghan Markle interview with Oprah Winfrey, on the March 10th episode of The Talk.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Osbourne addressed some of her alleged racist remarks, including one made to former ‘Talk’ co-host, Julie Chen.  When the outlet asked if she had ever called Chen a wonton, Sharon retaliated: ‘It’s all crap. It’s all crap. I don’t want to go there with her. She makes her living out of outing people. So, it’s like come on.  It’s got no real foundation. Allegations of calling a Chinese lady a wonton, it’s like – is that all you’ve got? It’s like really?’

So, what do you think of Osbourne’s potential pay day? Comment below.

She sure got a big payoff for her walk of shame, obviously trying to play it like it was her idea to leave when in reality they just wanted her gone at any cost. Personally, I feel as if she has been blackballed due to her big mouth, racist or otherwise. I would never watch any show she’s on.

No bad deed goes unrewarded, Violet. I never liked her.
And I’m sick of people shrilling “cancel culture” when sometimes it’s really a case of people being held accountable for their actions.

Good for her. The way CBS orchestrated her co-stars to drill her with questions without any heads up was dirty. She is lucky to get away from that sinking ship of a show.

So she gets to say a bunch of stupid racist shit and gets paid $10 million for it? Geezus, that’s a bigger scam than when she erased Bob Daisley & Lee Kerslake from Ozzy’s first two records so she wouldn’t have to pay them royalties on the CD remasters.

If a man were to say the things you have written here, he would be called a “misogynist.” I may otherwise agree with your basic opinion of Sharon Osbourne, but throwing in misogyny and ageism to make your point is unwarranted.

Up to $10M to walk away from The Talk and spin it to her own advantage? What a crock of shit!

I’d say to look for her to make a tell all special appearance on The View, but I doubt Whoopi (or Joy) could stomach that.

Times are hard and we know it’s only a matter of time before we see her on some nighttime talk show, telling her “tearful side”

‘Port Charles’ Star Jay Pickett Dead at 60

UPDATED:  Just heartbreaking news over the weekend.  Former Port Charles star and soap veteran, Jay Pickett died suddenly while filming a movie.  His cause of death was not immediately known, although in a post on Sunday from Travis Mills it appears to have been from a heart attack. Pickett was 60-years-old.  On Sunday, former co-stars have shared their remembrances while mourning Jay including Michael Easton, Kelly Monaco, Michael Dietz, Marie Wilson, Kin Shriner and more.

In addition to his most remembered role on daytime as Frank Scanlon on the GH spinoff, Port Charles, where he appeared in over 762 episodes, Pickett also appeared on GH replacing Ted King as Lorenzo Alcazar and came back to the show in 2006-07 in the recurring role of Detective David Harper.  Jay also spent time on Days of our Lives as Dr. Chip Lakin and appeared on primetime’s Desperate Housewives and Queen Sugar countless other TV series and films.

Word of Pickett’s death first came via Facebook from Jim Heffel who is the film’s co-producer, who shared along with these images (see below): “Yesterday I lost a good friend and the world lost a great person. Jay Pickett decided to ride off into the Heavens. Jay died sitting on a horse ready to rope a steer in the movie Treasure Valley in Idaho. The way of a true cowboy. Jay wrote the story and starred in it. He was also coproducer with myself and Vernon Walker. He will be truly missed. Ride like the wind partner.”

Michael Dietz, who played Pickett’s on-screen brother, Joe Scanlon on Port Charles shared his grief on the news on Facebook, expressing: “My greatest friend has sadly left this world. We met when we were cast as brothers on Port Charles many, many years ago. He played my big brother on TV but that carried over into real life and an amazing friendship that was one of a kind. He was an incredible husband, father, friend, and godfather to my daughter. Everyone that knew him loved him. I love you, Jay. Keep smiling my friend. All my love to his family, who truly became our family as well. You will be forever missed.”

Kin Shriner (Scott, GH) and Jay’s former co-star at Port Charles shared: “The sudden passing of my pal Jay Pickett Is very sad . He loved acting and Westerns , and when we got together we laughed a lot . R.I.P. Jay”

Kelly Monaco (Ex-Livvie, PC and now Sam, GH) shared on her Instagram:  “My heart goes out to the family and friends of Jay Pickett. If you knew him, you loved him. Words can’t describe…”

Michael Easton (Ex-Caleb/Michael PC, and now Finn on GH) expressed: “Mourning the loss of our friend and colleague. I first met Jay in Margie Haber’s acting class in the late 80’s and was fortunate to get to work with him many times over the next thirty years. He was a wonderful actor but an even better person. My deepest condolences to his wife and his children, his friends and all of his fans. Rest in peace, Brother.”

Marie Wilson (Ex-Karen, Port Charles) shared: “This is one of the most difficult posts I’ve done. My heart is broken to hear that this incredible person has passed. Words cannot described how much you touched my life….your friendship, advice, and support made me feel so grateful and lucky. My first day on the set was with us having a water fight ….and the fun adventures continued from there. So happy to have shared all those moments with you. I will miss you my friend!”

Travis Mills from the film Treasure Valley, in which Pickett was filming at the time of his death, shared on Sunday morning this updated message on Facebook: “Many of you have already heard about the tragedy that happened two days ago. Jay Pickett, our leading man, writer, producer, and creator of this movie passed away suddenly while we were on location preparing to film a scene. There is no official explanation for the cause of his death but it appears to have been a heart attack. Everyone present tried as hard as they could to keep him alive. Our hearts are broken and we grieve for his family who are so devastated by this shocking tragedy.  As so many of us know, Jay was an incredible man. He was kind, sweet, and generous. He was one of the best actors I ever worked with and it was an honor to collaborate with him. Everyone who met him, even for the briefest moment, could feel his warmth, his wonderful spirit. It is difficult to find the words right now to say more. His closest friends have said that he was very happy making Treasure Valley and my hope is that he truly was. He was doing what he loved: acting, riding horses, making movies. And he was magnificent.”

Jay is survived by his wife, Elena, and their three children, Maegan, Michaela and Tyler.

We will have more on this continuing story as remembrances for Pickett are shared, and updated on news of his passing.
