Sharon Osbourne caused a stir among fans last week when she wrote an ominous tweet that she wouldn’t be returning to NBC’s America’s Got Talent for Season 8.

The Talk co-host and rock star wife cleared up the statement during CBS’ TCA Press Tour on Tuesday held at the The Price Is Right studios when she revealed that the decision isn’t totally up to her.

“They’ve asked Howard [Stern] back,” she said, according to Deadline. “They haven’t asked me back. Who knows?”

And although she tried to circumvent further questions on the topic calling it “inappropriate” to discuss and saying they were there to celebrate “the No. 1 network in the world, that is CBS,” she did say one more thing on her possible departure.

When asked if she’d return to the show if she were asked, Osbourne said, “I don’t know, six years is a long time to be on any show. I have to think about me and what I want to do. I’m so f–kin’ old — I don’t know.”

NBC did not immediately respond to Celebuzz’s request for comment.

When Osbourne’s tweet created headlines during NBC’s TCA presentation last week, NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt tried to minimize the damage. “This is coming out of context. And it’s probably much ado about nothing,” he dismissed.

Osbourne joined the show during its second season in 2007. Her possible departure follows just a year after Executive Producer Simon Cowell replaced Piers Morgan with shock jock Stern. In addition to Morgan, former judges on the NBC competition include Brandy Norwood and David Hasselhoff.
