The (purely metaphorical, we should probably notice for legal reasons) The sulphurous stench we often associate with Piers Morgan opening his mouth and letting things emerge from it continued to spread further and further this week as it has now slowly begun to engulf and corrode the enamel of the CBS daytime talk series. . The conversation. This, unsurprisingly, is due to Sharon Osbourne, who has been with the series since its inception, and who decided to spend some of her seemingly indefatigable reserves of celebrity staying power defending Morgan earlier this week, after than the first. Good morning Great Britain host was typically himself re: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s recent Oprah interview.
Osbourne’s defense of Morgan “speaking his truth” led one of his former co-workers to resurface a personal truth of his own, namely that Holly Robinson Peete spoke out on social media today to remind the world of the time when Osbourne allegedly declared she and Leah Remini were too “ghetto” for the show, and reportedly leaned in to be fired from The conversation. (Robinson Peete and Remini lasted only one season with the series, which has been running since 2010.)
Osbourne has always denied that he tried to get Robinson Peete or Remini fired, although both women have told the story at different points in their careers.
Robinson Peete was specifically moved to post on this topic due to a heated conversation Osbourne had with co-host Sheryl Underwood on Wednesday’s installment of the show, where she stated that “I feel like they are going to put me in the electric chair because I have a friend. that a lot of people think he’s racist, so that makes me a racist. “He also demanded that Underwood“ educate me ”on what, exactly, Morgan’s statements read as racism, because nothing speaks of an ally for the black community. like demanding that a black woman educate you on the existence of racism.
Anyway: Osbourne made issued an apology for her defense of Morgan today via Twitter, stating that she felt “scared and shocked” at the time and “got defensive.” (CBS noted that Wednesday’s delivery of The conversation is currently undergoing an internal review.) All of which would be fine and fine (for a very low bar definition of fine and fine) except the whole incident caused Morgan to open his mouth once more, and lo and behold, the (metaphorical) A tide of stench rises once more to flood the land, ruining children’s birthday parties and forcing the fetid smell of shit six inches away from everyone. No need to reprint the exact content of your manufactured outrage—Turning, apologizing, etc. – but take it for granted that this story will never end, and it will be the last thing left on Earth after we’ve all drowned in Piers Morgan’s insatiable and unfathomable Stinker.
