Leah Remini Accuses Sharon Osbourne of Using Racist & Homophobic Language

Leah Remini Accuses Sharon Osbourne of Using Racist & Homophobic Language

Leah Remini is accusing Sharon Osbourne of using racist and homophobic language during their time co-hosting The Talk together years ago.

The Talk premiered back in 2010 with co-hosts Sharon, Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete as co-hosts.

Over the weekend, Holly accused Sharon of calling her “ghetto.” Sharon has been under a major microscope since defending Piers Morgan over his comments about Meghan Markle.

In a bombshell report from journalist Yashar Ali, he wrote, “Osbourne objected to Chen having any leadership role on the show and repeatedly tried to rally Remini and Robinson Peete in an effort to marginalize Chen,” Leah told him.

WARNING: There is graphic, racist, and homophobic language included in the below text.

Leah said that Sharon allegedly said of Julie, “I mean, who the f*ck does slanty eyes think she is? She shouldn’t be pillow-talking with our boss.”

Leah also alleges that Sharon said during other conversations about Sara and Julie, “Why won’t the p*ssy licker do anything about the wonton?” and “Why won’t the fish eater be part of this discussion? She’s the f*cking executive producer.”

Leah added about herself, “Not only did I do nothing about the racism and bullying I was receiving and witnessing, I was party to it. I had to own up to my own ugly.”

She added that the show was a “toxic environment” and was “easily manipulated into a web of high school vitriol, hatred and bullying.”

Sharon‘s PR responded to this story, saying, “The only thing worse than a disgruntled former employee is a disgruntled former talk show host. For 11 years Sharon has been kind, collegial and friendly with her hosts as evidenced by throwing them parties, inviting them to her home in the UK and other gestures of kindness too many to name. Sharon is disappointed but unfazed and hardly surprised by the lies, the recasting of history and the bitterness coming out at this moment. She will survive this, as she always has and her heart will remain open and good, because she refuses to let others take her down. She thanks her family, friends and fans for standing by her and knowing her true nature.”
