Sharon Osbourne is leaving "The Talk" after allegations of misconduct and racism led to the show going on hiatus and an internal investigation being launched into the longtime co-host and wife of Ozzy Osbourne. In the end, Sharon is allegedly choosing to make an exit, but feels a lot like the star is being forced out of the conversation on "The Talk."

"The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home," CBS said in a statement.

After the heated fight between Sharon Osbourne and co-host Sheryl Underwood, Osbourne claimed she was set up by CBS executives.

In response, the network said, "As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace. We also did not find any evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blindsided any of the hosts."

However, CBS is also acknowledging that Sharon and the other co-hosts were not properly prepared before the segment on the show:

"At the same time, we acknowledge the Network and Studio teams, as well as the showrunners, are accountable for what happened during that broadcast as it was clear the co-hosts were not properly prepared by the staff for a complex and sensitive discussion involving race."

When Will 'The Talk' Return?

"The Talk" is scheduled to return to the air on April 12 and CBS says that action will be taken during the off-time for everyone involved in the production, including the remaining stars.

"During this week’s hiatus, we are coordinating workshops, listening sessions and training about equity, inclusion and cultural awareness for the hosts, producers and crew. Going forward, we are identifying plans to enhance the producing staff and producing procedures to better serve the hosts, the production and, ultimately, our viewers."
