Sharon Osbourne is still trying to get over her disgraceful exit from the popular CBS show – The Talk!
Sharon Osbourne recently opened up about her much talked about exit from the talk show and how she is still coping up with the depression caused by it.
She recently had an interview with DailyMailTV where she criticized the behavior of her ex-colleagues saying that “cancel culture” is deeply stagnating the industry.
Osbourne quit the famous CBS show The Talk at the start of 2021 due to an over-the-board heated debate with her colleague Sheryl Underwood. They both got themselves into an argument over Piers Morgan’s comments regarding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in one of the most controversial interviews conducted by Oprah Winfrey.
Sharon Osbourne stated “it was as if I had gone in there with a machine gun and threatened to kill somebody. It wasn’t like I was coming in with t-shirts, with horrible slogans. I didn’t come in with a white hood, I don’t tell jokes about religion or color.”
On her controversial exit from the show, Sharon exclaimed “it was a freedom of speech matter. It was pure freedom of speech. A journalist friend of mine who wrote something that people didn’t like and then a few crazies out there go – you must be racist, that’s why you’re saying it – about my friend piers. It’s like, come on.”
Her exit got worsened when she was accused of racist behavior but she kept on denying such allegations. According to her, she was denied the right to use her “freedom of expression right”. She said she faced such backlash from the public and other sectors that she had to hire personal security for the protection of her family, herself, and her pet animals.
Osbourne said “I definitely went through a difficult patch at the beginning. I found it embarrassing. The humiliation that people would think that I might be a racist.”
One of Osbourne’s closest friends, Sara Gilbert hinted that Osbourne went through such a rough patch both personally and career-wise that she might have undergone ketamine therapy to completely recover from the depression and prance back to normalcy.
Osbourne admitted to taking therapy. She stated “I went through three months of therapy. I had ketamine treatment and I got it all out. All the tears and everything that I felt, you know. All of that, it’s gone.”
