Sharon Osbourne Exits 'The Talk'

Sharon Osbourne has been a main fixture on "The Show" since its inception in 2010. She's the only person who remained on the cast since the beginning.

But the audience seemed to have turned against the British host after getting into a tense argument with co-host Sheryl Underwood regarding Piers Morgan's "racially insensitive" behavior towards Meghan Markle.

Osbourne continued to defend the former "Good Morning Britain" anchor after slamming the Duchess of Sussex's interview with Oprah Winfrey.

But her co-host, Underwood, didn't see eye-to-eye with Osbourne after she supported Morgan's "freedom of speech."

The pair continued to exchange words as Osbourne cried live in the heated segment while also telling Underwood not to cry.
