Numerous celebrities have spoken in support of Gabrielle Union after NBC and America has talent He decided not to renew his contract after only one season in the program. Multiple outlets report that AGT the producers fired Union after she complained about a toxic work environment, and now former judge Sharon Osbourne is talking about her experience in the popular series.
Osbourne was a judge from season 2 to season 7, and left in 2012. And, he said Monday's episode of The conversation that AGT It was a great show to work with, but she has nothing good to say about NBC.
"Everyone's experience in a program is different, and I was in that program for six years. They didn't let me go," Osbourne explained. "I left. And that's the truth. I left because NBC, not because of the show. I had my own problems with the network. I don't know about any of your (Union) concerns about the program. "
Osbourne said there was no one in the panel when she was on AGT so I honestly couldn't talk about that. But, when she was there, the crew and everyone were amazing. All except the network.
Osbourne told the New York Post in 2012 he left AGT because NBC unexpectedly severed ties with his son Jack, who was supposed to work on a reality series titled The stars earn stripes. The premise was for celebrities to face each other in military training exercises. But, after doctors diagnosed Jack with multiple sclerosis, NBC fired him two days before he scheduled to start the program.
"I just can't be fake," Osbourne said at the time. "It is discrimination and was mishandled."
On Tuesday's episode of The conversation, Osbourne had more things to say about NBC, and agreed with Howard Stern's comment that Simon Cowell constantly replaces hot girls with hotter girls and younger girls, and is the "definitive boy club."
"It's a kids club, it is and children take care of each other and women are not paid as much as men," said Osbourne.
He also noted that the qualifications of AGT They were much taller when Cowell was not in the program. Osbourne added that Cowell does the same in the UK with the X Factor. Cowell is also on that panel, along with LA Reid and two women. Osbourne says that every time he appears there are "different little girls,quot; like Demi Lovato and Britney Spears.
"Now, the boys looked like two big punters in Las Vegas who picked up a couple of children," Osbourne said. "They looked like dirty old men next to these two girls and I was open, I told LA Reid and told Simon I wouldn't say anything to their faces." You look like two dirty old men, these are children, they can't judge other children, no matter how successful they are. "
Osbourne then argued again AGT and said he does not regret anyone for what they earn, but it is a kids club and the boys get special privileges. She set the example that she had to fly commercial while they flew in private.
After Carrie Ann Inaba read NBC's statement about the controversy, Sharon Osbourne said: "Stay together. NBC can kiss me a **!
