Sharon Osbourne Believes She Has Been 'Hung Out To Dry' After Doing Her Job on 'The Talk'
Sharon Osbourne's exit from "The Talk" was quite a dramatic one.
In fact, it is believed she's not taking her departure well.
A source revealed to Us Weekly that Sharon Osbourne, who has been on the show since 2011, is not happy that she will have to fight for her career following the controversy that led to her exit.
"Sharon is bitterly disappointed at how it all played out. Her whole career has been based on not holding back, speaking her mind and championing free speech," the source shared.
"So to be classified or perceived as a bigot or a racist is a sickening scenario and an utter nightmare for her, especially since she insists up and down it's all a pack of lies and that's the last thing she is."
Thankfully, she has her family supporting her and hyping her up, claiming she'll be able to bounce back "10 times stronger."
The source added, "It tears them apart seeing her suffer like this."
"They think it's a big stitch-up and she's been hung out to dry for something she hasn't done or believed in."
In an article by The Sun, they believe how it's ironic that one of the industry's most notoriously outspoken women has been fired for speaking her mind as she's only doing her job.
