Amid Sharon Osbourne’s Backlash Holly Robinson Peete Alleges That Sharon Thought She Was ‘Too Ghetto’ For ‘The Discuss’
On Friday, former talk show co-host Holly Robinson Peete claimed that Sharon Osbourne thought she was “ghetto” and shortly after that she was no longer on the show.
In a tweet, Holly stated: “I’m old enough to remember when Sharon complained that I was too ‘ghetto’ for ‘The Talk’ … then I was gone,” tweeted Peete on Friday. “I’m addressing that now [because] I was ashamed to see the disrespectful condescending tone she adopted [with] her co-host, who remained calm and respectful … she had to. “
Holly went to Instagram and also said, “Sometimes … you have to put your chest into words. Sometimes your only option is to say things with your whole chest. I’ve always been a highroad girl but when I saw what everyone else was seeing on my previous show @thetalkcbs it triggered me and I wanted to say something. “Holly continued,” Much respect for Sheryl Underwood, who should really have expressed her feelings on television as she wanted. Nor was it her job to raise a grown woman. I have always felt that it is unacceptable to ignore, defend or reinforce racism, bigotry and discrimination. If you know better, you should do better. “
Holly’s comments echo what her previous co-host Remini made in 2011. Remini also claimed Sharon wanted both of them fired for being “ghetto” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Those remarks come just a day after Sharon and her co-host Sheryl Underwood had a conversation about Sharon supporting Piers Morgan after discussing Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
As previously reported, Piers Morgan stated, “I expect all this hideous, destructive, selfish nonsense from Meghan Markle, but it’s shameful when Harry lets her kill his family and the monarchy like that,” he tweeted on Sunday night.
He stated on his show on Monday, “He sprayed his entire family on global television while Prince Phillip was in the hospital,” Morgan said, adding, “I see right through them.” Couple for the past 5 years. “
“America is now destroying our country and our monarchy,” added Morgan.
