Sharon Osbourne has harsh words – and a lewd gesture – for those involved in her shootings the talk.

The topic—as well as other ups and downs she endured during her time in the spotlight as a TV presenter, reality star, and director—is the subject of a Fox Nation documentary series titled, Sharon Osbourne: To Hell and Back which appeared on Monday. Osbourne is taking Yahoo Entertainment sober about her exclusion from the Emmy-winning CBS daytime talk show after 11 seasons amid a racism controversy, and says she will likely never work again in the US after what she considers to be “cancelled.” She and her husband, Ozzy, recently announced that they will be returning to their native England.

“I was thinking to myself: This is what’s going to happen,” she recalls shooting in March 2021. “Over 50 years working in this industry and this is going to be. That is. I’m going to come out as a racist? I found it so heartbreaking. And he was like: Why, why did this happen? ? Why? “

While retelling her side of the story in the four-part document – about defending her friend Piers Morgan after Meghan Markle was accused of fabricating allegations of racism from within the British royal family – The Osborne Alum in its most frank form. She shoots f-bombs at those she says has wronged her, literally gives her finger to CBS and reminds us that the network is imperfect, citing, in blunt terms, former CEO Les Moonf (and her ex-husband) the talk Julie Chen) sexual misconduct scandal. She tells us that all that remains for her is the fact that she lost her job and her credibility when an internal CBS investigation determined that her behavior was “inconsistent with [company] Value.”

“Let’s be honest about this: They destroyed my credibility in America,” she says. “lets be truly honest. It’s like: I have nothing to fear. Their claims were false, wrapped up, and distorted.”

Osborne, who says she wasn’t repentant enough for the network, continues, “We weren’t dealing with a company that runs, you know, religious programs. This company is like any other — ruthless — and they’ll do whatever they have. They don’t have any stigma on their network. [don’t want] Anything will rock the boat…”

When asked if she was considering suing CBS, she told us, “Sure I can. But do I want to waste two or three years of my life on them? No, I don’t want to do that. For what?” She also mocks the reports because she left the network with a payout. She says she didn’t get “nothing… see you ya”. It was like in the movies when people are abandoned [and] Bring out your box full of things. This was him.”

The boat rocked when Osborne backed Morgan who suggested Markle lied in the infamous Oprah Winfrey interview. The Markle-Prince Harry interview was also broadcast on CBS, in which the network has invested a lot of money. The next day, Osbourne’s hosts, Sheryl Underwood and Elaine Welteroth, were accused on air of unconscious racism, which Osborne claimed the show’s producers and CBS executives put her in a position. Wiltruth, who later left the show, and her hairdresser later lodged complaints alleging a “hostile and racially insensitive environment” on the set, which led to the show being held up until CBS could conduct an internal investigation. During that time, Leah Remini, a co-host of the series Osbourne in season one, alleged that Osbourne used derogatory language towards co-host Sarah Gilbert, who is a lesbian, and Chen is of Chinese descent. Osborne asserted that she was not racist and denied using insults against Chen.

Osborne invited Underwood and Weltroth to appear in her document, but they declined. She’s clearly hurt by what she sees as Underwood’s betrayal, having considered her a close friend because they worked alongside each other for 10 seasons. The document details this friendship, as he talks about Underwood’s visit to Osborne in the UK and referring to herself as “Black Osborne” in a 2018 podcast interview with the Osborne family. While Underwood recently said that she missed Osbourne, Osbourne tells us she would never do makeup with her.

She replied, “Never. No. Never.” “Why? Why? I’ve worked with someone all those years, sat next to her, traveled with her around the world, laughed, cried with her. No, because she’s not a friend.”

For the record, Osbourne is still friends with former co-host Carrie Ann Inaba, who advocates for her in the document, as well as Amanda Kloots, who is still on the show with Underwood and three new hosts. Mrs. O is also a friend of Gilbert, whom she talks to often, and says that any comments she makes about her have not been malicious.

“It was like I was saying those comments on air to Sarah,” she says. “That’s how stupid they are. That’s how bloody stupid they are. It’s something between me and Sarah.”

When asked if she had spoken to Remini, who has surfaced the allegations, she replied, “No, but I won’t because it scares me. Because it’s petty…so I will.” Start talk to her.”

The document was prepared by the production company of Jack, Osborne’s son. It’s in it as well as Ozzy, his daughter Kelly, and Osbourne’s friends, who talk about how infected she was with racist allegations. She struggled with depression in the aftermath, and underwent ketamine treatment, which Jack said was still “fragile” from it.

Osbourne says she upset her family and has been dragged into “utter madness” by it all. Not only did she receive death threats – which secured her employment – but the phishing extended to her family.

“It didn’t hurt me,” she says. “I know what I am.” “But when they started dealing with my kids and my husband, it was like – now that’s ridiculous. Now that’s absolutely crazy. And that really pissed me off.”

She says even her pets have received death threats. “They’re going to cut their throats? It’s like: You fools. You fools out there. But these fools can affect you. Unfortunately, this is the world we live in.”

This whole experience is partly behind them and Ozzy’s recent announcement that they will be returning to England from Los Angeles, which has been their primary home for 30 years. He cited “school shootings and massacres” in the US for the move, while also saying she did not feel safe. But the UK is also where the business comes between the talk Drops. Earlier this year, Osborne joined Morgan on his UK TalkTV show, which has also been confusingly named. the talk. She and Ozzy will also be doing a reality show on BBC, home to rustAnd the About their return to the English countryside, where they kept a home. It’s also where Osbourne wants to grow up with the Prince of Darkness.

“I mean, look, [England is] She says, “Where I was born. It’s my home. I’ve always been proud to be British. I was never one of those people who went to America and then had a mid-Atlantic accent. I’ve always stayed true to who I am. And it just works for us that way now.” [to return]. “

After all, “I’m also working on the Ozzy movie, which runs through Sony Pictures, and I have a lot of things to do,” she says, citing Ozzy’s first single on the Billboard top album chart this week. “And I can do it from anywhere. I don’t need to be in L.A.”

Besides, “I don’t think anyone is going to take me back to America,” Osborne says a year and a half after laying off. “I don’t think they will.”
