FURIOUS Sharon Osbourne has called accusations she's a racist "insane" and opened up about horrific death threats following her exit from US chat show The Talk.

The music manager told the Mail's You magazine she doesn't want the claims to be her legacy as she fights to clear her name following her on-air row with her former co-stars.

Sharon, 68, clashed with comedian Sheryl Underwood over her support for friend Piers Morgan following his criticism of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The showdown left Sharon in tears and she later went on to quit the show, which she had appeared on since its inception 11 years ago.

She said: "I know what I am. I know my faults. I know I behaved badly, I did not behave professionally, but neither did they. I know my part, but I know I’m not a racist.

 "I didn’t expect to get to the age of 68 and have all this on me. I do not want my legacy to be: 'Well, she was a racist.' I mean, it’s insane. It’s just not true."

The backlash went far beyond that of her fellow panellists. Sharon and her family were subjected to vile death threats which saw her beef up security.

She said: "Oh my God. I was getting death threats. They were going to kill my little dogs. Look at that. Who’s going to kill my baby?’ She holds up Bella, a 5lb white Pomeranian. They were saying: 'We’re going to poison the dogs. We’re going to come in the night and cut your throat.' And sending terrible stuff to the kids, too."

On Friday Sharon called her co-stars "disgruntled b****es" during an appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher.

Rebuffing allegations of racism made against her, she said: "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 cohost Sheryl.

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.

"The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home."

Jets Load up on O-Line, Cut Fan-Favorite Pass Rusher

Getty The New York Jets have released edge rusher Hamilcar Rashed Jr.

Reeling off the news of, potentially, another long-term injury to former first-round offensive tackle Mekhi Becton, the New York Jets have been stocking up on offensive linemen.

Here is the latest on #Jets tackle Mekhi Becton. As first reported by @SNYtv, Becton suffered a patella/knee cap injury & the #NYJ fear his season is over.

What happened? Where do the Jets go from here?

Discussed that on GSN with @CWilliamson44 pic.twitter.com/5Mi5OSVIK7

Keep in mind that the franchise also lost backup OT Conor McDermott for “one to two weeks” during the August 6th Green & White Scrimmage, and left tackle George Fant has been limited all summer as he recovers from his offseason knee surgery. To sum up the past 12 hours, things have gone from nervy to full-on panic mode in Jets land and the recent additions reflect that.

Chris Glaser Joins Benenoch

Last night, it was reported that Gang Green had signed versatile veteran Caleb Benenoch. This morning, the organization confirmed that acquisition while also revealing that rookie guard Chris Glaser would be joining him.

We've signed OL Caleb Benenoch and OL Chris Glaser. We've released OL Parker Ferguson and DE Hamilcar Rashed.

— New York Jets (@nyjets) August 9, 2022

“Glaser (6-4, 306) signed with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Virginia in 2022,” team reporter Ethan Greenberg informed. “He was an honorable mention on Pro Football Network’s All-America team last season after starting 12 games at guard for the Cavaliers. He had 44 starts in college and helped UVA finish third in the country [in] total offense (518.8 yards per game) and second in passing (392.6 yds/g). He played both right and left guard for the Wahoos.”

He also provided more information on Benenoch: “Benenoch (6-5, 305) spent last season with the [New Orleans] Saints and started one game. He was originally drafted by the [Tampa Bay] Buccaneers in the fifth round in 2016 out of UCLA and spent three full seasons in Tampa Bay before he was released in September 2019. He appeared in 35 games (22 starts) with the Bucs. Benenoch was a part of four teams in ’19 – the [New England] Patriots, [Carolina] Panthers, [Dallas] Cowboys and [Detroit] Lions and rejoined the Pats in 2020. He’s taken 1,385 career snaps.”

Both of these moves should be considered depth additions, not Becton replacements, to be clear. That signing could still be on the way via Duane Brown.

Douglas on Duane Brown: "Duane came in Saturday. Looks great. In phenomenal shape. Wheels are in motion and we'll see how things work out."

General manager Joe Douglas told WFAN’s “Boomer & Gio” that the “wheels are in motion” on a Brown signing on August 9. Depending on Becton’s long-term prognosis, the Jets might even add a fourth offensive lineman in the coming weeks.

2 Former UDFAs Become Early Casualties

With two players entering the scene, two players must of course exit it. The Jets announced those two casualties would be 2021 undrafted prospects Parker Ferguson and Hamilcar Rashed Jr.

The depth offensive lineman, Ferguson, did not play last season and spent the majority of his rookie year on the injured reserve. He had college experience at both tackle and guard, during his time with Air Force.

Rashed is the bigger name here. The pass rusher became a bit of a fan favorite during the preseason period last summer. He did not have the same impact this year.

The Athletic’s Zack Rosenblatt recently listed Rashed as a longshot to make the roster, noting that he has not “stood out” at training camp. The Oregon product was also dealt an unfortunate hand after the Jets brought in several edge rushers this offseason.

Rashed did play 16 defensive snaps as a rookie in Week 10, logging one tackle and one catch allowed. He had impressed against the New York Giants in August, with 1.5 sacks and two quarterback hits.
