Leah Remini Picks a Fight With Sharon Osbourne & Looks Like a Baby (VIDEO)

Leah ReminiRemember Leah Remini? You may recall her from the smash-hit sitcom, King of Queens, but to me, she'll always be Charlie Briscoe from Who's the Boss and Living Dolls (anyone?). Anyway! Not sure if you caught it, but last year Remini was also a host on the daytime talk show, The Talk, for, like a minute. She and co-host Holly Robinson Peete were permanently replaced by Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood last summer, though. Yeah, she's seriously not over that.

After hearing an interview Sharon Osbourne and the current co-hosts gave on the Howard Stern Show (that touched upon Remini's firing), Leah took to her Twitter, of course, and blamed her getting fired on Sharon. Like they all do.

Remini tweeted: "Sharon thought me and Holly were 'ghetto' ... not funny, awkward and didn't know ourselves. She has the power that was given to her." Sharon fired back, saying: "In response to Leah Remini's continuous comments that I had her fired, let me just go on record to say I had absolutely nothing to do with her departure ... "It's been seven months. It's time to move on. Leah is a very talented actress and I only wish her happiness and success." And of course Leah didn't backed down, getting the final word in, tweeting: "If someone wants me to stop, they should call a lawyer and tell them what I am NOT telling the truth about. We can go from there." Me. Ow.

Look, Sharon Osbourne seems like a pretty powerful woman in her own right. Did she have a hand in getting Leah and Holly fired? Who can say for sure, but truthfully, it wouldn't shock me. You want Sharon Osbourne on your show more than you want Leah Remini, right? But Leah needs to realize that tweeting all this crap about everything being Sharon's fault, etc. isn't doing anything for her. In fact, if anything, it's hurting her. Because, right now, to the outside world, she just looks like a sore loser, saying mean things about a former colleague. It sucks, but it doesn't matter if it's justified or not. Know what I'm saying?

Check out a video on The Talk "changes."

Do you think Sharon Osbourne had Leah Remini fired from The Talk?

The truth is the truth...if she feels that she was fired because of Sharon Osbourne and wants to speak up about it...go for it. I don't find anything wrong with it.


I can't stand Sharon Osborne. She's nothing but crass and crude. I wouldn't watch that show without Leah and Holly if they paid me. Sheryl Underwood looks and sounds like a cross dresser.

I love Leah and wish her another successful sitcom.  Wish she and Kevin James could pick up a current "King of Queens".  Love that show!!!!!!

I really like Leah too. And I enjoyed watching her and Holly on the show. I stopped watching after they were fired. I don't know if Sharon had anything to do with it. Perhaps Julie Chen did, since she's married to the head honcho at CBS. Julie comes across as a not so nice person IMO.


I agree with you cocobean, Chen now seems evil. I used to love watching Big Brother every summer. I'm not sure in good conscience that I can stomach her now. She HAS to have all the spotlight. I just can't stand it now.

i will always remember leah remini as stacey corosi from saved by the bell. that said, when i saw her on a reality show a while back, i learned that while she seems fairly likable, i don't particularly care for her.

honestly, i think people are just losing their minds these days. it seems like there's no such thing as handling personal matters in the public with dignity and class anymore.

Oh! I completely forgot she was on Saved by the Bell. Lol. She played Zach's girlfriend. I love her on King of Queens.

Holly Robinson Peete is a sweet classy intelligent woman. Cheryl Underwood talks about having one-night stand sex in the back of a car - she would do better on a show with Louis Ck and Lisa Lampanelli.

Leah is loud and crass, butt at I suspect it has more to do with the scientology thing and an insecure Chen-bot.

The real reason is Leah and Holly's tough stance on adultry - Sharon and Ozzies checkered fidelity past - Chen-bot was Les Moonves mistress and Sarah Gilbert was, at that time, cheating on her partner of 10 yrs.

lovin... lovinallofthem

it has been 7 months.. and dont get me wrong, i was VERY disappointed that they left..got fired, whatever

having been in the audience a few times with Leah and Holly, i have to say: THEY ARE AMAZING WOMEN!!  sharon rarely showed , never stuck around to say hi and play nice with the audience ((yes, i know she is SUPER busy with that classy show AGT))   Leah and HOlly TALKED and shook hands with crowd , genuinnely thanked everyone in the audience for supportig the show and really looked at people when they talked... i did notice that Leah and Holly had eye-exchange moments alot during tapings and i did notice Sharon couldnt stand it.. having had to sit thru re shoots...  so although i think taking to Twitter is a bit childish, i dont doubt Sharons part in their leaving the show.. and the whole "ghetto" thing:: please! sheryl is way more ghetto than i ever saw Leah and Holly get.  :/
