Sharon Osbourne Accused of Getting Co-Hosts Fired
Sharon Osbourne has been accused of getting two stars of The Talk fired.
Leah Remini - who was axed from the discussion show in August along with Holly Robinson Peete - claims the outspoken showbiz matriarch had the pair dismissed because she thought they were "ghetto and awkward."
"Sharon thought me and Holly were 'ghetto'...we were not funny, awkward and didn't know ourselves. She has the power that was given to her," she wrote on her Twitter.
However, Sharon - the wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne - slammed her "childish" former co-host's claims as "false gossip."
"In response to Leah Remini's continuous comments that I had her fired from The Talk, let me just go on the record to say I had absolutely nothing to do with her departure from the show and have no idea why she continues to take to Twitter to spread this false gossip. Leah knows that I have never been in the position to hire or fire anyone on the show. That being said, my only wish is that Leah would just stop all this negative, unprofessional and childish behavior. It's been seven months ... it's time to move on. Leah is a very talented actress and I only wish her happiness and success. I know that better things are to come if she can just get beyond all this negativity," she wrote on her Twitter.
Leah then hit back, accusing Sharon of seeking publicity and insisted she won't stop her allegations: "If someone wants me to stop, they should call a lawyer and tell them what I am NOT telling the truth about. We can go from there."
