Sheryl Underwood broke her silence about Sharon Osbourne. She has mentioned the former The Talk co-host until she left the daytime show in March 2021. The 69-year-old British personality was fired from the show after she got into a heated debate with Sheryl about racism. Sharon was upset with her former friend and told her not to cry on public television.
The two haven’t spoken since that time. Both Sheryl and the CBS daytime show have moved on without the original cast member. However, she admits that she “misses” her former colleague. She talked about her departure from the talk show.
The Talk co-host opens up about Sharon Osbourne
In an exclusive interview with People, Sheryl Underwood revealed her true feelings for Ozzy Osbourne’s wife. She admitted that she still “misses” her on the show. On Monday, September 12, The Talk premiered Season 13 with an outdoor circus theme. The comedian feels sentimental that the show has moved on without the fiery redhead.
“I miss her. You can’t work with somebody for all that time. I have an equation that I use — time plus distance equals clarity,” Sheryl Underwood told People. “When you work in daytime with somebody, 220 shows, four days a week, traveling with them, talking to them, you can’t forget that.”
Last year, Sharon got into a heated debate with Sheryl. She defended her friend Piers Morgan over his criticism of Meghan Markle during her and Harry’s interview with Oprah. The former royals shared their experience with the British Royal Family. They alleged that some of their family members acted racist.
Piers dramatically quit Good Morning Britain after his comments about Meghan. He got into an argument with co-host Alex Beresford about his harsh criticism. Sharon stood by her friend, which landed her in trouble with The Talk. She argued with her former friend that defending Piers didn’t make her a racist.
Sheryl Underwood tried to be a friend
Sharon was fired immediately after an investigation was launched into the talk show and the argument itself. Even former co-hosts Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete claimed that Sharon was racist to them when they worked on the show. Sharon argued that she was “set up” and she will “never forgive” the show for firing her.
As for Sheryl Underwood, she felt that she “was having a conversation with a friend.” On the other hand, she “knew I had to be an example.” She didn’t “want to be perceived as the angry Black woman.” Sheryl’s job was to remain rational and solemn during the conversation.
It was hard for her to go back to work because of the “trauma” she suffered. The Talk underwent a reboot after that episode. The talk show went on hiatus after it returned with guest hosts and a new point of view. What are your thoughts on Sheryl Underwood missing Sharon? Sound off below in the comment section.
