‘CBS Sucks Big Time D**k’
“I would never go back to that show because CBS sucks big time d**k,” Osbourne bluntly told TMZ on Thursday when she was approached while out shopping in Los Angeles with her husband Ozzy.
When asked if she thought it was fair that she was fired from the show, Osbourne replied, “Hey, listen it happened. I don’t care. I honestly don’t care. It’s not like I need it,” according to The Mirror.

Sharon Osbourne’s ‘The Talk’ Controversy
In March of last year, all hell broke loose on “The Talk” when Sharon Osbourne dared to defend fellow Brit Piers Morgan from allegations that he is racist.
Piers Morgan had come under fire for questioning Meghan Markle’s claim that she became suicidal during her time as a member of the British royal family following her marriage to Prince Harry. Markle made the explosive claim during her infamous tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, which had aired that same week.

Sharon Osbourne Forced To Leave ‘The Talk’
After putting the show on a brief hiatus, CBS announced that Osbourne would be leaving.
“Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave ‘The Talk,'” the network said in a statement. “The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home. As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace.”
“We also did not find any evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blindsided any of the hosts,” it added. “At the same time, we acknowledge the network and studio teams, as well as the showrunners, are accountable for what happened during that broadcast. As it was clear the co-hosts were not properly prepared by the staff for a complex and sensitive discussion involving race.”
