Sharon Osbourne Breaks Silence After On-Air Fight With Sheryl Underwood


Things got heated this week on CBS's "The Talk", when the co-hosts were discussing Piers Morgan's comments (and subsequent exit) on "Good Morning Britain."

The conversation started to go more specifically into Morgan and comments he has made in the past. Sharon Osbourne defended Piers after the backlash he received for the comments he made about Meghan Markle. On Wednesday, Osbourne said that Morgan "had a right to express his opinion", while co-host Sheryl Underwood disagreed, saying, "he doesn't want to understand how Meghan was treated was racism and then says…I don't see it as being racist -- I don't believe what she's going through -- it's that white entitlement, privilege that makes it racist upon itself."

This led to a particularly heated exchange between the two, though Osbourne was mostly the one aiming the fire, at one point telling Underwood: "and don't try and cry, if anyone should be crying, it should be me!". That exchange, along with Osbourne demanding that Underwood educate her on times that Morgan has been racist, didn't sit well with many viewers, setting social media abuzz. You can watch the entire clip below.

The co-hosts did not talk about the incident on Thursday's show, but Yahoo! reports that the co-hosts met for a post-show meeting on Wednesday to discuss what happened, but that "nothing was resolved."

It looks like there has been a change of heart since Wednesday, though, as Osbourne posted an apology and update on her comments on Friday morning. You can check that out below.
