I really liked Elaine Welteroth's response to Sharon.  Because she noted that the issue not about supporting or defending a friend, it is about the need for public figures to use social media to call out racism.  If you like Piers Morgan, call him on the phone, but don't use your status to promote his behaviors.

 

I think Sharon Osbourne and Whoopi Goldberg suffer from the same generational instinct.  If they've met someone, and had a pleasant working relationship, then they feel the need to defend or explain their character.  However, what they miss is the idea that men like Piers Morgan are cowards and would never offend someone to their face.  Thus, as an audience member, I don't care if Sharon or Whoopi like some old fool, I just want to know that they understand the boundaries of social interactions in modern media.

Sharon's main problem - and Piers Morgan's as well - is the inability to let go of grudges. She still trashes HRP and Leah Remini a decade after they were fired and replaced by Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler (the latter had a very strained relationship with Sharon as well).

FFS.  At this point, putting on an Indian head test pattern in place of "The Talk" would be an improvement and a blessing.  Just CANCEL this !@#$%^&*] already.

Honestly, if they replaced it with a third hour of TPIR I doubt anyone would truly care.

Or second hour, whatever, lol. It matters little.

Do a 1 hour Million dollar pyramid. You get to the winner circle the 4th time in the hour, you go for a million bucks. Why are any of you surprised at this turn of events? We're speaking about a woman who used to mail her TURDS to her enemies.

As I've said on the previous page, when anyone takes a critical look at the majority, if not all of the controversies and scandals/shakeups related to this show, Osbourne is usually in the thick of it. I already knew this and I was never even a viewer of this show.

The moral of this story is the Eve continues to have the best timing in show biz.

Don't be surprised if Drew Barrymore gets slotted in there.

 

It should be obvious that this show has not been performing well for quite some time. If it were, Sharon would have been suspended pending investigation, rather than the whole show being put on temporary hiatus. Also, don't be surprised if that temporary becomes permanent.

Honestly, I could care less, I just find these excuses kind of ridiculous.

ETA: the hiatus is two days?  Is that long enough for CBS to plot whether they want to put this broadcast eyesore to bed?

They had a few good years when Aisha Tyler was on the panel and they were regularly bating The View, but it didn't last. Though, does CBS even have a cheaper alternative to replace it with at this point?

 

I hope they don't think about giving the insufferable Gayle King another hour...
