Sharon Osbourne appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday night which was her first interview since leaving the CBS talk show, The Talk.
In the interview with Maher, Osbourne addressed her exit from the show. Osbourne made it clear that she blamed the “disgruntled ladies” for losing her job on The Talk. Osbourne also denied using any racial slurs.
“So on your ironically titled show ‘The Talk,’ you were talking. And if there’s one lesson from this, it’s that’s not allowed anymore. So I just want to say my view is nothing happened,” Maher said.
Maher continued, “Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gave their interview with Oprah. Then your friend Piers Morgan — he’s a commentator in Britain — he said he didn’t believe things that Meghan Markle said. And then on your show, you said, ‘Well, he’s a good friend of mine and I don’t necessarily agree with his opinion but he is entitled to his opinion.’ So he was called the racist and lost his job, and you were called a racist and lost your job. Do I have it right?”
“You got it right,” Osbourne said. “That’s exactly how it went.”
Maher and Osbourne went on to discuss the accusations of slurs she said. Osbourne denied them all.
