Host Sheryl Underwood shared a message from backstage as “The Talk” returned without Sharon Osborne.
Underwood said during the episode “I want to clear something up. There was a discussion about Sharon and I communicating with each other. I have not spoken to, and do not have any phone call, missed or received, that I can find in my phone.
“But there were text messages sent to me. And the reason I did not respond to those text messages is because they were coming to me during the internal investigation,” she added.

Discussing the exchange that led to Osbourne’s being ousted, Underwood said “I wanted to remain calm and focused. I just feel the trauma. I feel fearful and apprehensive. It is difficult to go back to that day because I feel the trauma. That really scared me.”
This was the exchange that led to the controversy and Osbourne leaving.
