Sharon Osbourne Says She Regrets Apologizing To Sheryl Underwood After ‘The Talk’ Feud: “F*** You! She Knew What I Was”

Sharon Osbourne is recalling The Talk incident from 2021, which led to her firing, and says she regrets apologizing to Sheryl Underwood.

In a new interview, Osbourne wishes she hadn’t taken her kids’ advice in apologizing to her CBS daytime talk show co-host after a heated discussion about race.

“I apologized to her, I didn’t want to because I felt I didn’t do anything wrong,” Osbourne said on The Sage Steele Show. “But my kid said to me, ‘Just apologize to her. Maybe you’re wrong and she read you wrong or something, just in case, apologize.’ And I did. I apologized to her. I called her. She wouldn’t pick up my calls and then she lied and said I never apologized. I have it all documented on my phone. You can never say that anymore because your a** is busted.”

When Steele asked Osbourne if she regretted apologizing to Underwood, The Talk alum said, “Yeah, I do. I’m like, f*** you. F*** you! She knew what I was. She’d been in my home, she’d gone to England with me. She always joked that she wanted to be an Osbourne and she wanted to marry my son Jack.”

Osbourne and Underwood got into a heated argument after discussing Piers Morgan’s comments about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey. Morgan did not believe Markle’s racism allegations about the royal family, and on The Talk, Osbourne defended her friend Morgan and got into it with Underwood.

The outburst forced CBS to put The Talk on pause and launch an internal investigation, which ultimately led to Osbourner’s firing.

After being forced out of the show, Osbourne said former co-host and The Talk creator Sara Gilbert advised her to go to therapy.

“It helped a lot because I honestly didn’t want to carry that around and be a victim,” she said. And look at what they did to me. It’s like, ‘F*** you and f*** corporation. I could give a f***.”

Osbourne said it took her a while to get to a place where she didn’t feel angry about the situation and being labeled a racist.
