Leah Remini: Sharon Osbourne Got Me Fired From 'The Talk'

The infamous question about why Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini were fired from ‘The Talk’ is back again thanks to Twitter. Leah previously spoke out when she stated fans “deserved a reason.” but little was known about the firing that took place seven months ago. Viewers received more info when a fan asked Leah what happened on Monday via Twitter. Her response:

“Sharon thought me and Holly were ‘ghetto’. . . we were not funny, awkward and didn’t know ourselves. She has the power that was given to her.” During an interview with Howard Stern Sharon Osbourne said the following,

“Some people don’t really know who they are and you have to know who you are when you’re in something like this.”

But before the blame get shifted from Julie Chen, Sharon quickly responded to Leah’s accusations via Twitter:

“In response to Leah Remini’s continuous comments that I had her fired from The Talk, let me just go on the record to say I had absolutely nothing to do with her departure from the show and have no idea why she continues to take to Twitter to spread this false gossip.”

“Leah knows that I have never been in the position to hire or fire anyone on the show,” she continued. “That being said, my only wish is that Leah would just stop all this negative, unprofessional and childish behavior. It’s been seven months. It’s time to move on. Leah is a very talented actress and I only wish her happiness and success.”

Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood have since replaced Leah and Holly.

Do you think Sharon played role in the ladies getting axed?
