“The Talk” will reportedly suspend its live shows until next week while the network continues to investigate the racist allegations against Sharon Osbourne.

Last Sunday, CBS announced the cancellation of “The Talk” for two days after the network launched an investigation on Sharon Osbourne’s uncalled-for behavior.

“The Talk’s” live shows were initially set to resume on Tuesday, March 22, 2021, but it seems that the issue is bigger than what it appeared to be.

The daytime series will reportedly stay off-air until the end of next week with no final return day. CBS began their investigation after Osbourne and co-host Sheryl Underwood’s heated exchange about Piers Morgan’s statements towards Meghan Markle.

According to “The Osbournes” star, she supports her fellow British personality’s freedom of speech. She sees nothing racist about Morgan not believing the duchess’ suicidal thoughts or claims against the royal family.

During their discussion, Underwood calmly said, “While you are standing by your friend, it appears that you are giving validation or safe haven to something that he has uttered as racist.”

The 68-year-old denied all of the allegations and claimed she was set up on the recent segment with Underwood.

Soon after the controversy, previous issues involving Osbourne surfaced on the internet, including an account from former “The Talk” co-host, Holly Robinson Peete.

According to the actress, Osbourne “complained that I was too ‘ghetto’ for #theTalk. Then I was gone.” Ex-host Leah Remini believes the British native said the same about her before the show dismissed her.

There were also other accusations of Osbourne making racist and homophobic remarks towards her former co-hosts, Sara Gilbert and Julie Chen.

According to Yashar Ali’s report, Osbourne offensively commented on the Chinese-American television personality’s eyes and called her a dumpling.

She also made an insulting comment towards executive producer Gilbert for being lesbian. However, the 68-year-old denied all of the allegations and claimed she was set up on the recent segment with Underwood.

Osbourne noted that she was blindsided by the questions asked by her co-hosts and could not believe that they were setting her up, hence her rage on-air.
