According to THR:
Sharon Osbourne has some harsh words for NBC: “I never want to hear from them again.”
The outspoken reality personality continues to lash out at the network that employed her as a judge on America’s Got Talent after a public falling out over her son Jack Osbourne‘s role in its summer reality entry Stars Earn Stripes.
More than a month after she claimed the network fired her son from Stars after he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Osbourne in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter reaffirms that her time with the talent competition is over and takes aim at NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt, deeming the executive “not well” after he allegedly blasted her for comparing the network to the Titanic.
NBC reality chief Paul Telegdy, meanwhile, told THR recently that while the network has five years of options on Osbourne, “you can never really coerce a performer into performing if they don’t want to. We don’t want to force anyone to do one of the best jobs in TV.”
He added, “Literally not one word has passed between myself and Sharon since she started the process of telling us she wanted to leave the show by means other than a phone call.”
NBC declined comment Thursday.
The Hollywood Reporter: Are you still planning on leaving America’s Got Talent?
Sharon Osbourne: Oh God, yes! I’ve left. I’m gone. I won’t go back. Greatest show, I love the show, but I really don’t like NBC, and that’s why I wouldn’t go back. I don’t like them; they treat their talent like shit! Not that I’m a talent, but I’m an employee, and they treat you like shit.
