Sharon Osbourne Rips “The Talk” Showrunners That Fired Her

The former “The Talk” co-host went into further detail regarding her feelings of the showrunners, which she believes left her on an island as she dealt with the criticism of defending Morgan.

Former “The Talk” co-host Sharon Osbourne appeared on Megyn Kelly’s SiriusXM show and went after former co-workers on the show, going scorched earth with her comments. 

Osbourne states she was labeled a racist after defending friend Piers Morgan after being criticized for disparaging remarks concerning Meghan Markle and her Oprah Winfrey interview.

“Amy Reisenbach, her name is, and the two showrunners, Heather Gray and Kristin Matthews, who I’d worked with for – I’d worked with the showrunners for 11 years,” Osbourne said.

“They were friends of mine, especially Kristin Matthews. And I told them that they’ve destroyed me. I told them I will never be able to get over this. It’s like, once you have that seed put on you that you are a racist, it never goes away. I told them they destroyed me.”

The former “The Talk” co-host went into further detail regarding her feelings of the showrunners, which she believes left her on an island as she dealt with the criticism of defending Morgan.

“I was talking to a woman that I’ve traveled with, that I’ve worked with, that I sat beside for 11, well, it’s actually, she was there for ten seasons. So for ten seasons, I had sat next to this woman. She was a family friend. And then boom, she puts me on the hot seat talking about racism, and she knows my history. She knows me. She knows I’m not a racist,” Osbourne said.

“I think that the showrunners were doing what Amy had told them to do. Weak, weak women that didn’t have a backbone to turn around and say, “This is suicidal. We can’t do this.” And to let it go after the break, so it was 20 minutes on national TV of bashing me. Twenty minutes … They just – it blindsided me.”

She also went after former co-hosts Sheryl Underwood and Elaine Welteroth for their part in Osbourne leaving the show.

“But the thing was, it was Sheryl, I think, thought she was Gayle King. She was hitting me up, not as a co-host and a friend. She thought she was a journalist,” Osbourne said. 

“And then you’ve got Elaine [Welteroth] who, I don’t know because I don’t know her that well, agreeing and you know, it was just a nightmare. But yeah, it was this woman, Amy, who I’ve met in my life maybe three times.”

Steve Malzberg Demands the Media Apologize to Wisconsin Officer

Malzberg said the media will hold Harris accountable for her misleading comments regarding the shooting investigation, “when hell freezes over.”

RT America host Steve Malzberg is demanding that the media apologize to the Kenosha, Wisconsin police officer who shot and paralyzed Jacob Blake last year. 

The Department of Justice recently revealed that it will not be filing charges against Rusten Sheskey because Blake was armed with a knife at the time of the shooting.

“No local prosecution, no federal charges, the end,” Malzberg said. “I’m waiting, and I’m probably the only one, waiting for the media to hold Vice President Kamala Harris accountable for her actions.” 

Harris, as a vice-presidential candidate, visited with the Blake family days after the shooting and told Blake that she was proud of him, and said the officer should be charged. 

“She (Harris) turned Blake’s whole family into some sort of civil rights icons,” Malzberg said. “Five days after the shooting Harris said the officer should face charges.” 

Malzberg said the media will hold Harris accountable for her misleading comments regarding the shooting investigation, “when hell freezes over.”  

RT America launched Eat the Press, a media commentary show hosted by veteran talk radio personality and political commentator Steve Malzberg last year.  It airs weekly, every Friday at 6:30 pm EST with repeats on Sundays at 10:30 am.
