What if and when she does, should she be allowed to stay on the show?
“No,” she replied. “They have to do this investigation. If what she said is true about Julie, Leah and Holly… these are just consequences. “
The drama began when Sharon became one of the very few to step forward and defend Piers Morgan, after calling Meghan Markle a liar following her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Osbourne has denied all of the allegations. However, her vehement rebuttal of the racism allegations on “The Talk” against fellow host Sheryl Underwood made the viewing deeply uncomfortable, as she warned her colleague not to cry amid the falling F-bombs, while Underwood was trying to keep his cool and not get dragged along. in a screaming match.
She later claimed that she was set up as a “sacrificial lamb,” something Shepherd does not buy.
“You are not a sacrificial lamb if you do not say anything. If you don’t say that stuff, you’re not a sacrificial lamb, ”she said.
Osbourne has since apologized for firing Underwood, but claimed she had not received a response from her.
“I’m not a racist and if you can’t try your friend who happens to be black does that make me racist because I said certain things to my friend but said them on camera?” She told ET in an interview last week. “I will continue to apologize to Sheryl, even if I decide not to go back, I will continue to apologize to Sheryl.”
But according to Shepherd, maybe she shouldn’t be allowed to return at all.
“I think they should probably clean the house at ‘The Talk’,” she said. “Maybe Sheryl is the moderator, I think she would be great. “
The show remains on hiatus as the network conducts an internal investigation.
