Forget celebs and current events—the cast and crew of The Talk have plenty to chat about behind the scenes.
Panelist Sharon Osbourne took a leave of absence from the chat show in late May, citing “extreme exhaustion,” but many wonder if she was merely making room to have her unemployed daughter Kelly Osbourne fill in!
“Sharon has been thinking about leaving The Talk for good, and Kelly hasn’t found a job since getting axed from Fashion Police,” dishes a show source. “People are openly speculating that she could be faking her illness just to make sure Kelly gets to replace her! Sharon would totally do something like that.”
But Sharon’s possible power play is rankling host and producer Sara Gilbert. “Sharon isn’t in charge, she just acts that way,” another source says. “Sara’s not going to have Kelly shoved down her throat, no matter how bossy Sharon is about it.”
