Sheryl Underwood breaks the silence of Sharon Osbourne’s departure from the conversation
When describing her relationship with Sharon, she called her a “quick friend” prior to the controversy and said, “You speak of 10 years of sitting next to someone … I would get advice from her. She had been in business a long time … And remember when I said, ‘I don’t know you as a racist. I know you are doing the work and you are on the journey.’ “
Sheryl later revealed, “I still love the Osbournes as far as I know of them.”
As she put it, “I don’t know anything but what I experienced with them and what happened disappoints me. And maybe people don’t want to hear me say, ‘I still love Osbournes.'”
But she clarified, “I’m not saying that I liked being treated the way I was treated … I’m very disappointed. And I’m trying to control my feelings about it because it was trauma. Think about it, I said I am PTSD, in shock, in slow motion. ”
However, she seemed to approve of how the talk team brought up the controversy.
“I was pleasantly surprised how it was dealt with. And that it was solution-oriented. And that it promoted healing,” she said. “I was pleasantly surprised to get to the bottom of things so we can correct things.”
The odd couple’s alum continued, “That’s why I felt so open to being able to say, ‘What do you need from me?’ And to get back to work on Thursday. We recorded two shows on Thursday, “apparently referring to March 11th.
Sheryl provided further insight into the atmosphere on the set after the March 10 incident by explaining her mood when she got back to work: “While there was a bit of concern … I was still like, ‘Sheryl, that isn’t as hurtful as you thought. It still hurts, but it seems like they’re trying to get to the bottom of something. ‘It didn’t seem as strange as I felt. “
The lecture returns on April 12th.
