CBS has postponed the return of daytime series “The Talk” for a second time as they continue to investigate allegations made against co-host, Sharon Osbourne.
For her part, the Brit has denied allegations that she called previous host Julie Chen “wonton,” and that she labeled Holly Robinson-Peete as “too ghetto” for the show.
The 68-year-old has also notified the police and massively beefed up her security after receiving threats to herself, her family and even their pets.
She did, however, apologize for her comments about Morgan after defending his rant about Meghan Markle’s mental health, which sparked a heated on-air discussion between her and co-host Sheryl Underwood.
“I have known her for a long time and I do not believe that she is racist,” the “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” singer declared on social media Thursday.
She added, alongside a photo of herself and Osbourne hugging, “I understand that she may have misspoken, used the wrong words, and acted in ways that have been hurtful to others. She may have even flubbed her apology. But I do believe that she is sincere in trying to make things right.”
