If you want to get Sharon Osbourne‘s take on ‘religion, politics and minority groups’ you’re going to be met with silence, at least during an interview.

The British television personality revealed in an exclusive chat with DailyMail.com that she has put those topics off-limits in the wake of getting fired from The Talk and her subsequent ‘cancellation’ by the public.

Sharon, 69, will wade back into the depths of the scandal that cost her a successful daytime television career in her upcoming Fox Nation documentary series Sharon Osbourne: To Hell & Back.

‘I learned a lot through [getting canceled] but you are who you are. I am not a racist … never said one racist thing,’ Sharon said. ‘People are woke, it’s a whole different world out there. People conduct themselves differently now.’

As a refresher, Sharon’s fall from grace was precipitated by a heated discussion with The Talk co-host Sheryl Underwood over comments Piers Morgan had made about Meghan Markle.

At the time, back in March of 2021, Morgan was being accused of being racist because of his harsh public critique of the Duchess. 

Sharon went ahead and defended Piers, a good friend, during an episode of her talk show and her defense did not sit well with Sheryl Underwood – nor did it with the public and CBS executives.

'I learned a lot through [getting canceled] but you are who you are. I am not a racist … never said one racist thing,' Sharon said. 'People are woke, it's a whole different world out there. People conduct themselves differently now.'

‘I learned a lot through [getting canceled] but you are who you are. I am not a racist … never said one racist thing,’ Sharon said. ‘People are woke, it’s a whole different world out there. People conduct themselves differently now.’

‘It’s scary when you can say one thing and it gets distorted or people don’t understand the context,’ Sharon reflected.

During a previous exclusive sit down with DailyMailTV last year, Osbourne asserted that the seemingly impromptu moment was actually carefully orchestrated by a show executive who wanted to create controversy.

When asked if – despite her claims she had been ‘set up’ and essentially hung out to dry on live television – did she regret what she said? Sharon was firm in her answer: ‘No. no. no.’ 

However, that is not to say that she hasn’t learned from the experience. ‘There are three things I never want to talk about, religion, politics and minority groups because you can never win,’ Osbourne said. ‘There will be 50 percent that agree with you and 50 that think you’re an a**hole.’

'There are three things I never want to talk about, religion, politics and minority groups because you can never win,' Osbourne said. 'There will be 50 percent that agree with you and 50 that think you're an a**hole.'

‘There are three things I never want to talk about, religion, politics and minority groups because you can never win,’ Osbourne said. ‘There will be 50 percent that agree with you and 50 that think you’re an a**hole.’

She added that the 50 percent who don’t agree become ‘judge, jury and executioner.’

After Osbourne lost her job with CBS and faced public ire over her defense of Piers Morgan, the fallout was swift and, from her perspective, brutal.

Death threats started pouring in against her and her family. Sharon previously revealed to DailyMailTV that as a result of those she was forced to hire 24 hour security and underwent months of ketamine therapy to deal with the trauma.

With time comes healing, however, and now that she has the benefit of hindsight (and a lot of helpful therapy), Sharon has closed the book on her fury over the ordeal. 

‘You have to let it go,’ Sharon said. ‘But, I can still talk about it – my feelings of anger and frustration have gone. If I had taken that around with me.. Its too much, I would have given them too much by carrying them around.’

‘You have to learn to let that go,’ she repeated. ‘Do I think I was unfairly treated? Yes. Am I gonna be on my dying day still talking about CBS? No way.’

'You have to let it go,' Sharon said. 'But, I can still talk about it - my feelings of anger and frustration have gone. If I had taken that around with me.. Its too much, I would have given them too much by carrying them around.'

‘You have to learn to let that go,’ she repeated. ‘Do I think I was unfairly treated? Yes. Am I gonna be on my dying day still talking about CBS? No way.’

Then she adds with a laugh, picturing the absurdity: ‘Am I gonna be on my deathbed and go ‘god I wish I hadn’t gotten fired from The Talk? I don’t think so.’

‘You gotta deal with it and get it gone out of your head. It’s dangerous if you let it fester,’ she explained.

In a silver-lining-on-a-dark-cloud moment for Sharon, the therapy she underwent to deal with the fallout from The Talk allowed her to also unpack issues from her past.

Extolling the virtues of the therapy process Osbourne quipped: ‘It’s the greatest thing because you get rid of it; you deal with it.’

Sharon has seeming moved past the trauma and drama of her Hollywood exit (both literally and figuratively as she and Ozzy recently packed up their Los Angeles mansion and returned to the UK). 

Bearing that in mind, it’s curious that the former America’s Got Talent judge would want to trudge everything back up for a new docuseries but she has her reasons. 

‘I wanted people to know that there’s more to me than that,’ she said. ‘It’s so easy to forget what everybody’s done before and just think about something like that. That last thing you heard was that I was called a racist by many people.’ 

It was that desire that prompted Sharon to partner with Fox Nation on the four-part program that will unpack the messy split from CBS and include insight from her famous family, friends and former colleagues. 

‘It’s a documentary on my life,’ Sharon explained. ‘There’s a lot of things in there that people didn’t know about me before.’

The diminutive Brit quickly rattles off a list of traumatic life events – like a plane crash, falling out with her family, footing the bill for her father’s taxes – saying nothing of her well publicized traumas like cancer bouts, Ozzy’s infidelity and Parkinson’s diagnosis, son Jack’s MS diagnosis and daughter Kelly’s battle with addiction.

As for the Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne is doing great. His wife of 40 years revealed that he’s recovered from a recent surgery to correct issues stemming from a fall and has just released a new album that is quickly racing the global charts.

‘He’s feeling much better,’ she said. ‘He’s very very happy today [about his album].’

Ozzy is doing so well, in fact, he has his sights set on a tour ‘hopefully next summer.’

'I wanted people to know that there's more to me than that,' she said. 'It's so easy to forget what everybody's done before and just think about something like that. That last thing you heard was that I was called a racist by many people.'

‘I wanted people to know that there’s more to me than that,’ she said. ‘It’s so easy to forget what everybody’s done before and just think about something like that. That last thing you heard was that I was called a racist by many people.’

The couple is currently completely refurbishing their old home in England, which Sharon says has a lot of land and is out in the country. And, as a longtime animal lover, the TV personality is already planning on getting baby ponies and llamas for the grounds.

‘For Ozzy and I, LA is not really the place for people who are older. It just isn’t. I don’t want that life anymore.

‘It’s not like Ozzy are movers and shakers. We don’t go to every party or opening,’ she said laughing: ‘Oh s**t I’m missing New York Fashion Week.’

‘It’s a very odd feeling after you’ve been somewhere for so long and you come back and you think it’s going to be great,’ the star reflected on their repatriation – which will be done with cameras rolling. ‘It’s gonna be so difficult.
