The Talk investigation drags on

CBS now investigates new racial allegations against Osbourne but the host claims she was "set up."

An investigation into The Talk is dragging on.

The US show was originally put on hiatus last Sunday for two days. The break was then extended and scheduled to come back with live shows this coming Tuesday, March 22.

Deadline now reports cast were informed that the show will remain off until at least next week.

A week ago, CBS launched an investigation into the heated exchange about race between Sharon Osbourne and co-host Sheryl Underwood, which followed Piers Morgan comments in the UK.

Since then, there have been new allegations against Osbourne that she had used racial slur towards former co-host/exec producer Julie Chen. Former co-host Holly Robinson Peete also claimed that Osborne had called her too “ghetto” to be on the show.

Osbourne has denied the claims, publicly accusing CBS executives of being behind the segment, which she calls “a setup.”

No return date has been set for the show which screens in Australia on 10.

  1. There is no way this can continue with Sharon involved and I suspect the hiatus is due to arranging that in a way she can’t sue them – ie. a healthy settlement and the PR being that she quits.

    The Dannii Minogue stuff years back on X Factor UK revealed what type of woman she really was so none of this is really a surprise.
