KEY POINTS

  • Sheryl Underwood said she wished she wasn't involved in Sharon Osbourne's exit from "The Talk"
  • The "Beauty Shop" star still loves the Osbournes despite their heated argument last month
  • Underwood said she was disappointed with what happened and is still navigating her feelings 

Sheryl Underwood got candid about her former co-host Sharon Osbourne’s departure from their show, “The Talk.”

Last month, Osbourne and Underwood had a heated argument after the latter questioned the former's support for Piers Morgan who expressed his disbelief in Meghan Markle's revelations in her interview with Oprah Winfrey. Osbourne became emotional because she felt they were accusing her of being racist due to her association with Morgan.

CBS launched an internal investigation that resulted in the show being put on hiatus and Osbourne's exit. In the "Sharon Walks Away" episode of "The World According To Sheryl" podcast, the comedian spoke about Osbourne's exit and she said it would have eventually happened, but she wished she wasn't involved.

"I regret that it happened because sometimes in life something happens and you just go, 'Gosh, if I just would've.' There's nothing that I could have 'just would've.' This was going to happen, out of my control," she was quoted by Us Weekly as saying. "Sometimes you don’t want to know what you know."

The "Beauty Shop" star hasn't spoken with Osbourne yet. However, she noted that she still loves her and her family.

"I don’t know anything other than what I’ve experienced with them, and this thing that has happened is disappointing to me," she continued. "And maybe people don’t want to hear me say, ‘I still love the Osbournes.’ I’m not saying I liked being treated the way I was treated. … I’m very disappointed. And I’m just trying to navigate my feelings about that because it was a trauma."

Prior to her departure, there were claims that Osbourne already expected that she would be fired. However, she was allegedly anticipating a sizeable compensation if she were to leave the show. There were claims that she received a multimillion-dollar payout before her exit.

"Sharon is walking away with a $5 to $10 million minimum payout and was able to spin that it was her decision [to leave the show]," a source told Page Six.

However, CBS denied the reports that she received a huge payout calling those claims "false, inaccurate or untrue."

Osbourne was spotted last week heading to the Sunset Marquis hotel in Hollywood for lunch. She was in great spirits and even gave a videographer who asked how she was doing a thumbs up.
