She should be talking the talk.
Andy Cohen said that Sharon Osbourne should have been allowed back on “The Talk” to discuss the growing grievances against her instead of CBS pulling the plug on the show while the network investigates.
“In my mind, what they should have done with the Sharon Osbourne thing, is go back, get back on the horse the next day, talk it out on the air. Keep talking,” the Bravo honcho recently told Australian radio program “The Kyle And Jackie O Show.”
Cohen’s comments come after “The Talk” went on hiatus stemming from Osbourne’s controversial defense of Piers Morgan for his criticism of Meghan Markle’s recent tell-all — which erupted in an on-air confrontation with her co-host Sheryl Underwood.
Osbourne issued a statement of apology but “The Talk” was put on a brief hiatus so CBS could investigate.
Shortly after the initial dust-up, allegations against Osbourne and the show started pouring in.
Former “The Talk” co-host Holly Robinson Peete accused 68-year-old Osbourne of making racially insensitive comments, and people including ex-co-host Leah Remini claimed Osbourne called Julie Chen “slanty eyes” and “wonton” and Sara Gilbert a “p—y licker.”
Osbourne denied the claims about Chen, telling the Daily Mail: “Everyone’s got an opinion or a story like the wonton story. It’s like f–k off with your f–king wonton story. F–k off.” Her rep also told Page Six, “Sharon is disappointed but unfazed and hardly surprised by the lies, the recasting of history and the bitterness coming out at this moment.”
Page Six also reported that new co-host Elaine Welteroth had claimed the set was a “racially insensitive and hostile environment.”
Osbourne’s fate on the show remains up in the air.
“She’s taking it one moment at a time. No decisions have been made yet. It’s not simplistic at all,” an Osbourne pal previously told Page Six. “There are people who are angry. Some think she’s the only star of show. There are a lot of different beliefs. Things have to play out.”
