On Wednesday night, the ladies of The Talk – Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, Aisha Tyler, and Sara Gilbert – all appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show. While they were there, Arsenio asked the ladies what they thought of their competition on The View.
While Julie opted to take a classier approach in her response, Mrs. O didn’t hold back her thoughts. She called Barbara Walters “divine” and “superhuman” before saying “the rest can f— themselves.” Of course, her diss quickly went viral the next day, and now Sharon is apologizing for her actions.
“I want to apologize to Jenny [McCarthy], Sherri [Shepherd] and Whoopi [Goldberg], who are all accomplished, self-made women who have amazing careers. They have achieved so much,” Sharon said, according to Fox News. “Please understand, it was my irreverent, irreverent behavior and no disrespect meant. And I’m not a person that is mean. I’m really not and I apologize.”
Her co-host Julie Chen backed her apology, explaining that “it was a joke” and that they all “love the ladies of ‘The View’.”
