SHARON Osbourne reportedly has no intention of watching The Talk after her drama-filled exit from the show last month.
The 68-year-old left the daytime program after a nasty on-air fight with co-host Sheryl Underwood and after being accused of making racist comments.
The Talk went on a month-long hiatus after the allegations and after the hosts’ big blowout, during which an internal investigation was being conducted.
After a few weeks, CBS announced Sharon had decided to leave the show after 11 years, and the program returned without her on Monday.
Sharon, who was the last remaining original host, is reportedly completely done with The Talk – both as a host and a viewer.
A source told Page Six she didn’t watch when it returned on Monday from its long hiatus.
Sheryl spoke all about the upsetting argument she and the former host had during the new episode, but Sharon missed it all and has no plans on tuning in in the future.
The insider said: “She didn’t watch the show. She doesn’t care. It’s really behind her. That’s not what her life is about.
“She doesn’t dwell on s**t. There’s too many exciting things happening in her life.”
While Sheryl was able to give her thoughts on the whole debacle on The Talk, Sharon will be having her turn when she gives her first post-exit interview on Friday.
Sheryl broke down in tears and said she has "PSTD" from her battle with Sharon.
She added: "I didn't want to escalate things with Sharon because I thought I was having a conversation with a friend.
"But also I feel I had to be an example for others to follow because I didn't want to be perceived as the angry Black woman. That really scared me, I didn't want to be that.
"I wanted to remain calm and focused. I just feel the trauma. I feel fearful and apprehensive."
On Friday, Sharon will have her time to talk and is sitting down for a chat with Bill Maher on his HBO show, Real Time with Bill Maher.
According to the source, the British TV personality will be talking about a lot of what’s happened in her life recently but won’t do so in a “gossipy” manner.
She will be “discussing her ideals,” the insider said.
The source added: “She’s excited. Bill has gone through the same thing she has, where he was fired for being outspoken, so she’s really happy to go on the show with someone she believes will be empathetic.
“Presidents, prime ministers, speakers of the house — the highest officials in government have done [that opening segment of the show], so she’s very honored to be asked.”
A source told The Sun that The Talk staff believes Sharon will “rip Sheryl Underwood to shreds” during her interview with Bill Maher, as the team takes her side in the nasty feud.
Sharon received backlash for “racially insensitive” comments she made on The Talk while defending Piers Morgan’s criticism of Meghan Markle.
She and Sheryl had an emotional fight at the time the comments were made, and Sharon abruptly walked off the set of the show.
After the program went on hiatus for an investigation into what happened on the show and all of the allegations of racism that came later, The Talk announced Sharon's departure.
"Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave The Talk," CBS announced.
"The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home.
“As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace."
