Sharon Osbourne in First Interview Since Leaving ‘The Talk’ Tells Bill Maher She’s ‘Angry’ and ‘Hurt’

In Sharon Osbourne’s first interview since her exit from The Talk, following her remarks in the controversial exchange with Sheryl Underwood on the March 10th episode of the CBS afternoon series, the former co-host told Bill Maher how she was feeling at this juncture.

The conversation between Bill Maher and Osbourne aired last night on Maher’s HBO series, “Real Time”.

At the beginning of her appearance while addressing what has happened to her, Osbourne told Maher that the controversy has left her “angry”and “hurt”.  She went on to say, , “I’ve been called so many things in my life, I am so used to being called names, but a ‘racist’ is one I will not take.”

Maher seemed to incite the flames of the entire situation when ‘summed up’ the incident that occurred that ultimately led to Osbourne’s downfall.  As viewers recall, Osbourne came to the defense of Piers Morgan for his right to have his view on Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, where he did not believe what Markle had said about the royal family and her accusations.

Morgan walked off the set of his hosting gig at Good Morning Britain, and eventually lost the job to it as well.  So, with that Maher said of Morgan to Osbourne, “He was called a racist and lost his job, and you were called a racist and lost your job. Do I have it right?” Maher continued, “Who’s the racist and why? This is what I’m trying to figure out.”

Osbourne responded, “Me too.”  She went on to say, “Disagreeing with someone does not make you a racist.”  When the two brought up her alleged use of racial slurs against former ‘Talk’ co-hosts, she referred to those accusations as remarks from ‘disgruntled ladies.’

This interview has already been widely panned by the press, because Maher and Osbourne did not pointedly discuss  Osbourne’s treatment of Underwood on the March 10 episode that began the entire scenario, while ‘The Talk’ did address it on this past Monday’s episode when the show returned from its hiatus.

Watch a clip from Osbourne’s interview with Maher below.  Then let us know what you thought about her remarks and Maher’s via the comment section.

As a regular viewer of Maher’s show, I watched this interview but thought it was ruined by Maher who did most of the talking and wouldn’t let Osbourne finish a sentence. (He is not always this way.) I thought it was important to hear Osbourne’s take on the events, but she wasn’t really given the opportunity to do so.

I agree. I watch Maher’s show regularly as well. He’s been a real prick the past two weeks. I was impressed with the way Osbourne handled herself last night, and surprisedly was empathetic with what she had to say. I had not been prior to this interview.

Echo, thank you for your reply — and backup! Based on what you’ve added, I “echo” (mirror) your thoughts as well, regarding Osbourne and including the “prick” comment. For whatever reason, Maher seems to go out of his way to pick fights with his own side, and he admonishes the audience every time he feels they don’t respond appropriately to his commentary and/or jokes. You’re being kind by suggesting it’s just been the “past two weeks.” Take care.

I saw that day on “The Talk” and don’t see anything Sharon did wrong. Not sure where calling HER a racist comes into play.

Sharon did not do anything wrong. She gave her opinion on her friend but that doesn’t make her a racist!

Whoever runs CBS daytime, cancel this dumb show and bring GL back it had more viewers. If CBS was smart, yes smart, not dumb, but S M A R T -bring us GL back to the lineup and bring back Gina T – CBS did her so wrong, dumb butts (not the word I wanted to use)

They will never bring back GL. That ship sailed away long ago. And the actors involved have either moved onto other projects or have retired.

Sadly the world wishes to see most Caucasian’s as racist, I view people by their character and actions not race as I also believe Sharon does. Those who cry racist are typically the truly most racist in the crowd, I don’t see a color, I see a potential friend. Let’s all search for the good in this world and our neighbors as diligently as we’ve been searching for things to complain and riot about… if we spend our time searching for good we’ll find we can change this world to a much better place for our children and grandchildren

From your lips..I have been around a long time and have only seen things get worse, especially during the last four, long years. I personally do not care for Mrs.O, and don’t know know if she is a racist or not BUT, I also think that sticking up for her friend’s right to his opinion does not make her a racist. Gee, I hope this makes sense.

Well, if you view people by their character, I’m afraid Sharon’s not doing too well in that department either. Nor is her pal Piers Morgan.

Nope. Caucasian’s did that all by themselves by their past history and refusal to denounce present racism. Don’t blame that on anyone else. And let’s stop the “I don’t see color” charade. We all see color.

I still don’t understand what Piers said was racist. He said he didn’t believe what Meghan said. How is that racist? Plus, things she said in the interview have been proven to be false. I saw a little of The Talk. I also don’t understand how Sharon is racist based on that. I don’t know about some of the things she’s been accused of saying in the past. If she did say those, why was she still on the show? I don’t think Sharon should have had to resign based on that one episode. I think Sheryl is milking this… Read more »

I have to be careful here. The last time I made a comment about an opinion, it was deleted. More than one slur of Sharon’s towards a co-host has been corroborated by others on the show. I have seen and heard her on more than one show and she’s very opinionated. Her tongue is a double edged sword. Also, from what I’ve read, she didn’t quit, she was fired, thus the millions of dollars she received.

Regardless of what Sharon did or didn’t say in the past behind the scenes, it has nothing to do with her defending Piers. He said nothing racist, and Sharon said nothing racist. Yet these two are somehow out of a job while Nick Cannon’s anti-Semitic spew was applauded by many of his fans, and Snoop, a Farrakhan follower who also spews anti-Semitic garbage as well as white hate, keeps getting co-host gigs and advertising spots, guest spots, etc. It’s disgusting.

Who said that you can’t bring back GL? The whole former cast have NOT died for heaven’s sake. The show could focus on the younger characters and mix with some of the former older cast. Make it 30 min and fast paced and modern! Get rid of The Talk. I am sure Sharon agrees.
