Sharon Osbourne Attacks ‘The View,’ then Apologizes

By November 10, 2013

Follow me on:

Wednesday night, Sharon Osbourne, co-host of CBS's The Talk, appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show with her co-hosts, and took The View, often considered The Talk's main competition, to task.

Hall asked the hosts to explain the difference between their "round table" and that of The View's. Osbourne off-handedly said, "I love Barbara Walters. The rest can go [expletive] themselves."

Osbourne quickly recanted a day later, before anyone from The View had time to comment. She told The Talk audience "I want to apologize to Jenny McCarthy, Sherri Shephard and Whoopi Goldberg, who are all accomplished, self-made women who have amazing careers. They have achieved so much. I mean, Whoopi is an Oscar winner. Who am I to say anything about Whoopi or any of the ladies?"

Further, Osbourne said her comments came about because she is a "loose cannon" and really meant her moment to been seen in jest rather than taken seriously. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, but with The Talk on the rise and The View in transition, our bet is that it was to make the late night Arsenio audience laugh rather than take a true jab at the competition.
