The subject, as well as other ups and downs she has faced during her time in the limelight as a TV host, reality star, and manager, is the subject of a Fox Nation documentary titled, Sharon Osbourne: To Hell and Back which started on Monday. Osbourne gets real with Yahoo Entertainment about being cut from Emmy-winning CBS daytime talk show after 11 seasons in the midst of racism, and says she will probably never work in the US again after being “cancelled”. She and husband Ozzy recently announced that they are to go back to his native England.
“I was thinking to myself: This is going to happen,” she recalls of her March 2021 firing, “Working in this industry for over 50 years and it’s going to happen. That’s it. I’m going to come out as a racist? I found it so heartbreaking. And it was like: Why Why did this happen? Why?

For what?” She also scoffs at the report Network left with payout, She says that she “found nothing… A’ see you again.” it was like in the movies when people are let go [and] You take out the box full of your belongings. that was it.”
The boat rocked when Osbourne backed Morgan who suggested Markle lied to her The Notorious Oprah Winfrey Interview, Markle-Prince Harry’s interview with the network also aired on CBS invest a lot of money in, The next day, Osbourne’s co-hosts Sheryl Underwood and Elaine Welteroth accused him of unconscious racism, which Osbourne claimed was the show’s producers and CBS executives. put them up, Welteroth, who later left the show, and his hairstylist later filed complaints alleging a “racially insensitive and hostile environment” on set, causing the show to go on hiatus so that CBS could conduct an internal investigation.

Osbourne invites Underwood and Welteroth to appear at his doctor, but he declines. She is clearly hurt by what she sees as the betrayal of Underwood, considered a close friend as they worked side by side for 10 seasons. The doc details the friendship Underwood was talking about visiting Osbourne in the UK and referring to himself as “The Black Osbourne” in a 2018 podcast interview with the Osbourne family. While Underwood recently said He remembered Osbourne, Osbourne tells us she would never do makeup with her.
“Never. No. Never,” she replies. Why should I?
For the record, Osbourne remains friends with former co-host Carrie Ann Inaba, who defends her in The Doctor, as well as Amanda Kloots, who remains on the show with Underwood and three new co-hosts, “Mrs. O” Gilbert, whom she talks to frequently, and says none of the comments made about her were malicious.
“The thing was, I would say those comments to Sarah on air,” she says. “How foolish they are. What a bloody fool this is. It’s something between Sarah and me.”

“It didn’t hurt me about myself. I know what I am,” she says. “But when they started on my kids and my husband, it was like — now this is ridiculous. Now it’s complete madness. And that made me really angry.”
She says that her pets also received death threats. “They’re about to cut their throat? It’s like: You idiot. You idiot out there. But these idiots can impress you. Unfortunately, this is the world we live in.”
This whole experience is partly behind her and Ozzy’s recent announcement that they are moving back to England from LA, which has been their home base for 30 years.
