'The Talk' Twitter Battle: Osbourne vs. Remini

Breaking up is hard to do, even in daytime

By TVDeeva Deanna Barnert Mar 15, 2012 7:41AM
With "The Talk" celebrating its renewal for the 2012/2013 season, last season's co-host shakeup is back in the news. Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete were given the boot back in September. And even though Remini's busy working on the ABC pilot "White Van Man," it's clear she's still smarting from the breakup. The comedienne got fired up on Twitter, taking shots at Sharon Osbourne for getting her fired. Never one to hold back, Mrs. O responded and it became a Twitter tête-à-tête.

Bing: More about "The Talk" | Leah Remini

It all started when a fan gave Remini a Twitter shout-out Friday, March 9, saying she wished Remini would come back to "The Talk." "Not our choice. we were fired sweetie," Remini responded.

Over the next few days, more fans started tweeting to Remini about the topic, often trashing Mrs. O, and Remini's Q&A rant snowballed. "Sharon made it happen and i guess ppl who still watch her make it happen? Sharon thought me and Holly were "Ghetto", (her words) we were not funny, awkward and didn't know ourselves… Haters Gon' Hate. True. But, Haters have the balls to say they "Hate"...not call themselves your friend. she had us fired all the while calling me and holly her friend. heartbreaking. Yes. she had us fired she told howard stern. explains why she never called us back…"

That is just a selection of the tweets, but Remini's message was clear and Sharon Osbourne heard it.

"In response to Leah Remini's continuous comments that I had her fired from @TheTalk_CBS, let me just go on the record to say... I had absolutely nothing to do w her departure from the show & have no idea why she continues to take to Twitter to spread this false gossip," Osbourne responded via twitter on Tuesday. "Leah knows that I have never been in the position to hire or fire anyone on the show.

"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. I know that better things are to come if she can just get beyond all this negativity."

Remini, of course, responded.

"I would now like to move on from 'The Talk,'" she started in a string of tweets. "I answered a question on Twitter from fan who wanted to know what happened AGAIN. I answered from the information that was given in an interview from Howard Stern. This is what happens when ppl dont get HONEST answers. This is what happens when shady stuff goes down and no one wants to man up. Now, we get games being played on Twitter. No one is perfect, including me. This is a waste of time. I will not respond to Sharon BUT only to say this, IF she wanted to clear it up she has my number & has had ALL this time and didnt use it. not even to say she was sorry. so to Sharon I say... Well done Sharon, you won. I will move on now as you suggested. And so should u. Be at Peace."

Remini also claimed Osbourne is just looking to get publicity and that Mrs. O wouldn't be mad if what she was saying wasn't true. "If someone wants me to stop, they should call a lawyer and tell them what i am NOT telling the truth abt. we can go from there."

These ladies certainly know how to to talk the talk!

"The Talk" airs weekdays on CBS.

Please this is all that I ask...Rosie please shut your mouth, slip into whatever part of the black hole in this universe that your fat should never open mouth issue words from and DISAPPEAR.  Really Oprah was the Moron for giving you a chance.  But as Trumpet said we (him) knew you'd fail at it too.  The way I understand it, you're a failure at being a Lesbo as well.  Wanting a woman just isn't cracked up to be what it is?  And what man would want you.  Bestiality up next.  Nasty, nasty, nasty w*(^e

Ha! I love it! Rosie is an obnoxious, fat, and an ugly person and I'm not necessarily referring to her appearance. Absolutely no sympathy here. I do not watch Fox News and do not agree with or understand Trump's latest fascination with the far right, but I applaud him for taking her on whenever he can. Rosie is someone who has totally lost my respect. She is a bully and it's nice to see bullies get a piece of the medicine that they administer on others. I hope that at some point she becomes a nice person. She is down right ugly and mean.

The View----Sharon O is an ole' frumpy women and with the help of plastic

surgery and 'tucking' here and there, she looks ok.. Have u seen pictures of her

before the face lift?  Wow what a miracle that doctor performed.  She needs to

be nice, or people will start pulling out those old pictures to the surprise of "Viewing" audiences.  At least her kids have turned out surprisingly good.

Friends of Louis James have started a fundraiser to help with the cost of his medical expenses. He has been an inspiration to all of us and we have helped over the years but the bills have gotten to much. He was a Driller in the oil industry. He is 61 years old and became ill in 1988 with cancer, because of the high doses of cortisones given to him in order to save his life his body has been ravaged with heart disease, vascular disease, artificial hips on both sides along with the right shoulder, serious stomach problems because of all the medications he is taking. Over the years it has cost him all of his savings.  In July 2011 he had his lower left leg amputed. It has not healed yet and now the bone is infected. He is dealing with many specialist doctors trying to get him on his feet. He has such a positive outlook on his situation. He has numerous medical bills, has depleted all of his savings and is just above the qualifying bracket with his Social Security to get free medical help from the government. He has to pay his monthly medical advantage plan and what the insurance does not pay. Please help and send donations through PayPal using a credit card or your PayPal account.

Remini was the best. She was the reason I watched. I don't watch anymore. I watch The Revolution. Leah was funny and REAL. Julie and Sharon were upstaged by her and didn't like it,...So she was fired! The show is now boring, so I don't tune in. I did in the beginning, but after listening to the BORRING SARA GILBERT I tuned out. GET RID OF SARA. She brings nothing to the show. I don't care if she is a producer. Julie you lost the best by getting rid of Leah and Holly. We don't care that your husband is the Big Shot. Sharon is boring, Underwood is loud and boisterous and not the least bit funny, Sara sucks (boring) Julie?.?.can take or leave.

I have never liked Rosie, I think she is two faced and a drudge on real talent.

I'm surprised this show is still on the air but I suspect that's because Julie is married to the president of CBS.  I only watched the first few episodes.  Thumbs down

The Donald is correct. Rosie is a bore...or is it a boar? Either way, we're better off without her on television.

Rosie has something the little does not have : Guts Balls Respect  and a Brain. His 15 minutes of glory and fame has been washed up along with him. He should take his borrowed money from and go get a life.

Leah was excellent on The Talk! Would rather watch Y&R and B&B than talk shows any day BUT because of Leah I would sometimes record The Talk, she was funny and most of all REAL!

Have not watched since she left!

I seriously doubt if Sharon 'got' this gal or Peete fired.. I know from just listening to her that Peete probably got herself fired! She's about the most obnoxious and unprofessional person on TV.. Her one claim to fame, being on The Apprentice (and she was one of the most hated people on the show) is the only thing she has going for her..
I don't know this Remini, but from her rants and tirades on Twitter, I'd say she's pretty much the same type of person as Peete.. Obnoxious and unprofessional!

Not a Sharon fan. Respect her business savy, but not a fan of her mouth either.  Really have no idea what qualifies her to be on TV.  Didn't care much for the show to begin with but don't watch it at all now.  Agree they are trying to be the view and not making it.

What's done is done. Personally I do not enjoy daytime any longer. I have always thought "The" Talk was mimicking  The View and although I hear about "The " Talk, I refused to watch CBS like I used to since As The World Turns was taken off, so there are only three shows I watch on CBS and that is it, during the day. Personally, I think "The" Talk should be The Joke.

Anyway, back to the women, Leah Remini vs. Sharon Osbourne. What happened, of who did what to who, does it really matter? The reason I say this is, it's over, done and buh bye. So there are true friends and there are fareweather friends. I don't think I would have gone into details as Leah Remini has on Twitter but she did and it's done. There are some things in life that is not worth dignifying with a response.

Life goes on and the best thing is to turn a negative into a positive.  God closes one door and opens another. Everyone may be entitled to their own opinion but sometimes not saying a word is better.
