Julie Chen addressed the elephant in the room on Monday morning’s episode of The Talk after co-host Sharon Osbourne‘s split from husband Ozzy was revealed over the weekend.
Sharon decided to take the day off to maintain her privacy and Julie opened up about why she wasn’t on the show that day.
“Before we get started, as you can see, Sharon is not here today. There were many tabloid headlines this past weekend about her and Ozzy. Rumors and speculation that they have split up after nearly 34 years of marriage. Sharon understandably took today off. We are sending all of our love to her and her family and we ask that you do the same,” Julie said. Watch the clip below!
According to E! News, the 67-year-old musician and the 63-year-old The Talk co-host have split after more than 33 years of marriage.
A source told the publication that they “mutually agreed that Ozzy would move out of the house temporarily.”
Ozzy and Sharon met back in the 1970s as he found success with his metal rock band Black Sabbath. They got married in July 1982 and have three children together – Aimee, 32, Kelly, 31, and Jack, 30. The family had their own MTV reality show The Osbournes, which ran from 2002 and 2005.
Sheryl went straight into action and told the guy, “Don’t pull a Steve Harvey!” Now, she is explaining what she meant by her comment, which was inspired by his Miss Universe mistake.
“I’ve been making this off-handed comment, when you say ‘you pull a Kanye,’ now ‘you pull a Steve Harvey,’ right? So I had been saying, don’t pull a Steve Harvey. And Steve is my friend, so because I had been saying it so much, I text messaged Steve and said, ‘Steve, if I say anywhere publicly, pulling a Steve Harvey, would that hurt your feelings?’ He said, ‘Nope.’ I said cool,’” Sheryl said.
She also added that the comment means, “Trying to take your crown and steal your shine… For me when that boy was coming up to the stage, I was like hell no!”
