Sharon Osbourne Shares Email that Holly Robinson Peete Sent Her Blaming Julie Chen for Her 'The Talk' Firing

Holly Robinson Peete has accused former The Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne of complaining that she was “too ‘ghetto’” while on the show, which she believes could have led to her firing.

Now, Sharon is sharing an email that Holly sent to her in September 2011, in which she blamed their co-host Julie Chen for the firing. At the time, Leah Remini was also let go from the talk show.

“In response to Holly Robinson Peete’s accusation of me getting her fired from The Talk, I am sharing an e mail sent to me from Holly one month after she was let go by CBS. As I have stated before, I have never had the ability/authority to get anyone fired from The Talk,” Sharon said on Twitter.

In the email, Holly talked about how everyone was “paralyzed in fear of the wrath of Julie” at the show. She added, “The irony that you were the 1st one to ‘quit’ and yet we end up getting fired and is just crazy.”

“I know you are in a tough spot…Naturally Leah is very angry and believes you turned and are not true to your word about your feelings toward Julie. She feels you re weak as Sara [Gilbert] and you all have been sippin on Julie Kool-aid. But I told her you are just looking out for yourself and scared of CBS blacklisting you like they are us,” she continued.

Another celeb is backing up the claims that Holly made.

Hi Sharon!

Hope you are enjoying your time off…

Miss you madly

I have called you a few times but I haven’t heard back from you since the show aired. I’ve heard that you like everyone else at The Talk are under some sort of gag-order. A few brave souls have called me to wish me well and tell me the show is like a communist state where all are paralyzed in fear of the wrath of Julie. I have never seen anything like this in my life. The irony that you were the 1st one to “quit” and yet we end up getting fired and is just crazy…

CBS is doing behind the scenes damage to my career with other studios and nets… And now Les is getting in the mix commenting -completely lying defending Julie—check it out here: http://tinyurl.com/6kvuusa

Look, I know you are in a tough spot. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t sting that you haven’t returned my calls but I get it. Naturally Leah is very angry and believes you turned and are not true to your word about your feelings toward Julie. She feels you are as weak as Sara and you all have been sippin on Julie Kool-aid. But I told her that you are just looking out for yourself and scared of CBS blacklisting you like they are as right now…

If you are angry that I complained to CBS about Julie and the “racist” comment I apologize but I owe it to my family to try to stop the venomous lies Julie is spreading. I am now being told I may need to take legal action to get her to stop trashing me…

Sharon, I do really appreciate you still honoring your invite to my mom and Ryan for AGT. It meant the world to Ryan. But don’t worry I promise won’t put you in anymore awkward situations anymore so as not to put you in a bad space with Les and Julie…because trust me-it’s NOT a fun place to be…
