After this, she became a judge on “The X-Factor” and America’s Got Talent,” before continuing her appearance as a host on television.

‘The Talk’ Hiatus
Since March 10, 2021, CBS made the decision to let the show go on a long break with no revelation of when it will be back.
Although this decision did not please viewers very much, the show needed to enter into an investigation, following the Osbourne incident.
Among a few controversies, the TV personality was accused of using racism comments on her co-host on the show. She also accused CBS of trying to set her up on the show.
Initially, the network wanted to take a few days to sort through the problems, but it ended up taking over a month during which Osbourne called it quits.
