Sharon Osbourne - The Talk host

"The Talk" is finally returning on Monday after an almost month-long hiatus after the whole Sharon Osbourne controversy.

After a heated exchange between her and co-host Sheryl Underwood, the red-headed Brit left the show where they debated over accusations of racism against Piers Morgan.

On Monday, the CBS daytime discussion show will still feature hosts Sheryl Underwood, Elaine Welteroth, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Amanda Kloots.

And according to Deadline, an expert will be coming in on the show to talk about racism, diversity, equity, justice, and inclusion.

Dr. Donald E. Grant will be joining the co-hosts to discuss these critical topics and learning to have difficult conversations since it has also become highly impossible to engage in open dialogues with closed minds in today's world.

Another expert, Dr. Anaita Phillips, a trauma expert, will discuss how a person's healing and how to move beyond controversial conversations or other challenging life experiences.

However, these experts' advice comes a little too late for Sharon Osbourne, who was forced to leave the show following the Mar. 10 episode and fallout, after which the Emmy award-winning show was placed on hiatus.

CBS has placed the show on hold and conducted an internal interview after the heated episode, which later resulted in Osbourne deciding to leave the show.

A review on CBS's part also found out that Osbourne's behavior toward her co-hosts "did not align with our values for a respectful workplace."

They also claimed that the internal probe that the hosts were not adequately prepared by the show's team for a discussion on race, but found no proof to support Sharon Osbourne's claims CBS ordered she be confronted for supporting Morgan.
