THE Talk's Sharon Osbourne slammed costars as "disgruntled b****es" following their claims of racism against the host.
The 68-year-old appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher in her first interview since she left the daytime talk show.
During the interview, Sharon slammed her past cohosts for coming forward with claims of racism and admitted women are "b****es and that's the way it is."
She continued: "I never, ever said that Leah Remini was a whatever she said. I don't even use though words. They're not in my vocabulary.
"And for Holly, I think I said when I printed the text that she sent me after she said I got her fired. In the text she said, 'I know it was Julie. I know it was Les. I'm thinking of suing."'
Sharon added: "It's disgruntled ladies."
Leah, 50, previously claimed Sharon called co-host Julie Chen "racial slurs," while Holly Robinson Peete alleged that the longtime host was "condescending" and called her "too ghetto" for the show.
Following Holly's claims, Sharon defended herself by posting an email from her former cohost on Instagram, which she captioned: "In response to @hollyrpeete Holly Robinson Peete’s accusation of me getting her fired from @thetalkcbs and saying she was ‘too ghetto’ to be on The Talk.
"I never once uttered those words and I am sharing an email sent to me from Holly one month after she was let go by CBS. As I have stated before, I have never had the ability/authority to get anyone fired from @thetalkcbs and Ms. Peete’s email speaks for itself.”
In the alleged email from Holly, dated September 19, 2011, the actress and talk show host appeared to be on good terms.
Holly allegedly wrote “miss you madly” to Sharon and said she has called her “a few times.”
She ended the email with “xoxox.”
Sharon also spoke about cancel culture during the interview, stating: "I'm a fighter. I'm doing just fine."
After reiterating that she's "doing just fine," Sharon added: "But what about the people who were cut from the knees down and they can't afford to go get lessons about what's politically correct and how to talk to people?
"What happens to them? It's not fair because it isn't about being a racist. It's about maybe not knowing about what is correct and woke for your language that day, cause it changes from day to day- what is correct and what isn't."
Sharon's interview with Bill followed her decision to quit The Talk after having an on-air fight with co-host Sheryl Underwood.
The longtime daytime talk show host was criticized for what was perceived to be racially insensitive comments she made while defending Piers Morgan’s slam of Meghan Markle.
Piers, the British TV personality, had said that he "didn't believe a word" Meghan said during her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Following his comments, the commentator abruptly departed the long-running Good Morning Britain program.
Sharon addressed her decision to stand by Piers on the March 10 episode of The Talk, which was followed by a verbal fight with Sheryl.
Sharon told her co-hosts: “Why is it that because I supported a longtime friend and work colleague for years, people go ‘well you must be racist because he’s racist.’
“No. I support his freedom of speech. I’m not racist and neither is Piers racist.
"What have I ever said about anybody that’s racist? It’s not within me. It’s not in my soul.”
A source told The Sun following the argument that both sides initially “refused to apologize,” though Sharon later did issue an apology on her Instagram page following the argument.
CBS later announced Sharon had quit the show.
The network said: “Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave The Talk.
"The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home."
