SHERYL UNDERWOOD: I'm nervous, but I'm ready.

- CBS's "The Talk" returns after Sharon Osborne's departure. Yeah, it was less talk-y and more therapy Monday afternoon on CBS. The Network's daytime show "the Talk" ended its hiatus. It had been off the air since this incident on March 10. Co-host, Sharon Osborne, defended comments from her friend, Piers Morgan, that were perceived to be racist of Dutchess Meghan. Things then became heated between Osborne and Sheryl Underwood.

SHARON OSBOURNE: How can I be racist about anybody or anything in my life?

SHERYL UNDERWOOD: Well.

SHARON OSBOURNE: Well what?

- CBS announced a few weeks later that Osborne left "The Talk", and Monday, with the help of two doctors, the remaining co-hosts spoke about having difficult conversations with loved ones. Some specifics regarding Sharon were addressed though. Underwood revealed whether her and Sharon have spoken since the incident.

SHARON OSBOURNE: I have not spoken to and do not have any phone call missed or received that I can find in my phone, but there were text messages sent to me.

- Underwood said she didn't respond to the text because of CBS's active investigation after the episode. Co-host Elaine Walter-Roth addressed another claim that Osborne was set up.

ELAINE WALTER-ROTH: That is absolutely, categorically false. There was nothing on my cards that was preparing me.

- Now Osborne did apologize for her initial comments in March. However, she later claimed to Entertainment Tonight that it was all a setup. She had been on the show since 2010.
