- We have this, just in-- New accusations that Sharon Osbourne, a host of the CBS show The Talk, used homophobic and anti-gay slurs to describe her former co-hosts. According to a report by independent journalist, Yashar Ali, Osbourne used the slurs to describe Julie Chen and Sara Gilbert. CBS is already investigating an argument last week between Osbourne and co-host Sheryl Underwood.

After today's reports, CBS says it's extending the show's hiatus until next Tuesday. Sharon Osbourne says the allegations were made by a disgruntled former employee, and that she is disappointed, but unfazed, and, she says, hardly surprised by what she calls lies. The network said in a statement that "CBS is committed to a diverse, inclusive, and respectful workplace all across our productions. We're also very mindful of the important concerns and discussions taking place regarding events on The Talk."
