Sharon Osbourne had some choice words for Simon Cowell on the April 17th episode of The Talk. Addressing reports that a new biography about Cowell says Osbourne left her position as mentor on the U.K. edition of The X Factor because she was angry over Cowell’s relationship with fellow judge Dannii Minogue, Osbourne snapped, ”I’m, like, pissed off because you’ve got a whole career to talk about. … Why bring Mrs. O into your messing around?”
Though she admitted she did not like Minogue, Osbourne insisted Cowell’s romantic entanglements had no bearing on her decision to quit The X Factor. She also put forward a couple of theories about the misinformation. First, she said Cowell “likes to glamorize, he likes the publicity, he likes the attention.” She noted, “The thing is, nobody leaves Simon – he fires you.” Then Osbourne, who currently judges on the Cowell-produced America’s Got Talent, laughed, “He’ll probably fire me now.”
As for her final theory about Cowell (whose reps offered no comment)… well, you’ll have to watch the clip for that. Hint: It involves the indictment, “He has everything – but you can’t buy the goods!” Find out what those “goods” are below.
What do you think, PopWatchers? Are you more inclined to believe Simon or Sharon?
