Sheryl Underwood breaks silence after Sharon Osbourne’s exit from ‘The Talk’: ‘This was out of my control’

News of Osbourne’s departure came a few weeks after a heated exchange between Osbourne and Underwood, in which Osbourne expressed support for Piers Morgan after he left “Good Morning Britain” over differing opinions about Meghan Markle following the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry‘s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

In addition, the intense discussion led to a subsequent internal investigation and hiatus from air before Osbourne ultimately stepped away from the show. 

Now, during an April 3rd episode of her “Sheryl Underwood Radio” podcast, Underwood has opened up about the moment.

SHARON OSBOURNE WRESTLES WITH RETURNING TO ‘THE TALK’ AMID EXTENDED HIATUS: ‘I DON’T KNOW WHETHER I’M WANTED’

“Sometimes in life, something happens and you go, ‘Gosh, if I just would’ve … ‘There’s nothing I could have ‘just would’ve’ — this was going to happen, out of my control,” Underwood, 57, said. “Sometimes you don’t want to know what you know.”

Since Osbourne left the show on March 26, Underwood revealed that the two have yet to speak and when asked if Osbourne had reached out to her directly to apologize, Underwood quickly retorted, “no” before scrolling through her previous phone history to double-check.

However, Osbourne took umbrage with Underwood’s claims that she hadn’t apologized and shared alleged proof to the Daily Mail in the form of screenshots that the conversation had in fact gone down.

“I not only sent these messages to Sheryl but I apologized to her in person in her dressing room,” Osbourne told the outlet on Tuesday. “Why are you saying I never apologized Sheryl? What are you trying to do to me?”

Osbourne continued: “Why are you trying to destroy my reputation? Just be honest. Tell me.”

In the alleged conversation between the embattled hosts, Osbourne writes in a message dated March 12 — two days after the on-air spat — that her heart is “heavy” and she is “deeply saddened by the events that transpired on Wednesday.”

“I don’t want to lose my true friend over this,” Osbourne allegedly continues. “Im sorry for telling you to f–k off during break, I’m sorry for accusing you of fake crying while we were live on air and I’m sorry for losing my temper with you.”
