The drama between the ladies of “The Talk” past and present continues.
Former co-host Holly Robinson-Peete fired shots at Sharon Osbourne after the British TV personality appeared to call her and Leah Remini “disgruntled ladies” during her appearance on “Real Time With Bill Maher” Friday night.
On Saturday, Peete, tweeted, “So I’m told this lady told @billmaher that @LeahRemini & I are ‘disgruntled’. Didn’t watch – did Bill (who knows us both) push back or did he coddle & commiserate like w/ KellyAnne & Megyn?”
“And finally #new rule: Let’s retire the word ‘woke’ bc Unaccountability is exhausting,” she added referencing Maher’s “New Rule” segment.

Peete and Remini spoke out after Osbourne got into a heated discussion about racism with co-host Sheryl Underwood on a recent episode of “The Talk.” Underwood was calling Osbourne to task for defending comments Piers Morgan made about Megan Markle when things went left.
After an internal investigation by CBS, Osbourne exited the show. During her appearance with Maher she not only doubled down in her defense of friend Piers she also denied claims from both Remini and Peete that she had used racist and homophobic slurs during her tenure on the CBS daytime talk show.
“I don’t even use those words, they’re not in my vocabulary,” Osbourne said of the allegations. “It’s disgruntled ladies.”
“I’m used to being called names. A racist is one I will not take,” Osbourne added. “I’m a fighter, I’m doing just fine. What about the people that are cut from the knees down and they can’t afford to get lessons now on what’s politically correct and how to talk to people? What happens to them? It’s not fair. It isn’t about being a racist. It’s maybe not knowing what is correct and woke for your language that day. Because it changes from day to day, what is correct and what isn’t.”
We think Sharon should just be quiet for a while and stop doing interviews. It’s only making things worse. That’s just our two cents. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
