Sharon Osbourne received a payday of up to eight numbers from CBS when she left The Talk last week on charges of racist behavior, a source said.
« Sharon goes on a minimum payout of 5 to $ 10 million of it and found it was her decision [to leave the show], « the source said.
Another source said that as part of her departure agreement, Osbourne not only gets a lot of money, but is free to speak up.
« Sharon will speak when she is ready, » the source said. “She still wants to give her side of the story. She has been on this show for 11 years and knows all the secrets. The departure comes two weeks after she argued with co-host Sheryl Underwood over Osbourne’s defense of Piers Morgan, who was forced by his own show in the UK to over-attack Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Page 6 exclusively revealed last week that Osbourne had become an attorney and was represented by a top entertainment attorney, Jeremiah Reynolds – and that she « didn’t go down without a fight … she knows where all the bodies are buried. » / p> Osbourne’s attorneys negotiated a soft statement about her departure from CBS, which leaves the door open for her to continue her television career on other networks.
« Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave » The Talk « », it says in the CBS publication. « The events of the March 10 show were annoying for everyone involved, including the audience watching at home. » Page 6 reported exclusively that the internal investigation was initiated when presenter Elaine Welteroth and her hairdresser got in complained about an alleged « racially insensitive and hostile environment » after the broadcast on March 10th.
After the heated on-air debate, Osbourne tweeted a lengthy apology saying she was « racism, misogyny, or. » Bullying does not condone « .
» I should have elaborated on this in my tweet, « she continued, referring to her original defense of Morgan online. « I will always support freedom of expression, but now I see that I did not make that clear distinction inadvertently. »
In a bombshell report that cited several sources, including the former co-host of « The Talk » , Leah Remini, it has been alleged that Osbourne used racial slurs when speaking of others on the show.
It was alleged that she referred to Julie Chen, a Chinese American, as « wonton » and « slanty eyes » and former lesbian co-host Sara Gilbert as « py licker ».
« Everyone has an opinion or story like the Wonton story. It’s like getting started with your F-King Wonton story. F – k off, « Osbourne said in an interview with the Daily Mail.
A spokeswoman von Osbourne declined to comment on her departure from « The Talk » and representatives from CBS did not reach out to us.
