'America's Got Talent' Judge Sharon Osbourne Says She Hasn't Been Asked Back for Season 8
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?”
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.
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.
