CBS confirmed the departure of the former X Factor judge in a statement, in which it also announced that the show would continue to be “on hiatus for the foreseeable future as the cast transition.”

CBS announced: “Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave The Talk.

“The events of the March 10 show shocked everyone involved, including the viewing audience at home.

“As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior towards her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values ​​for a respectful workplace.

“We also found no evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blinded any of the hosts,” he added.

“At the same time, we recognize that the network and studio teams, as well as the showrunners, are responsible for what happened during this broadcast.

“As it was clear that the co-hosts were not properly prepared by the staff for a complex and sensitive discussion involving the breed.

“During this week’s break, we are coordinating workshops, listening sessions and trainings on equity, inclusion and cultural awareness for hosts, producers and the team.

“Going forward, we are identifying plans to improve production staff and produce procedures to better serve hosts, production and, ultimately, our viewers.”
