Osbourne spoke to Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier on Tuesday shortly before journalist Yashar Ali reported that she had called Julie Chen "slanty eyes" and "wonton" and Sarah Gilbert and "p*ssy licker' and 'fish eater.'" The interview was also conducted before CBS announced it was extending its hiatus for The Talk by one week in wake of the new allegations. In her ET interview, Osbourne elaborated on her allegation that The Talk producers "blindsided" her by telling her that she would questioned about her defense of Piers Morgan shortly before last Wednesday's taping. Osbourne said she's unsure what will happen to the show and whether or not she'll return. "I wish we could go on and have a adult conversation calmly and work it out but I don't know whether we can," she said. "I don't know whether it's gone past that. I would love to but I don't know whether I even want to go back. ... I don't know whether I'm wanted there." But Osbourne said she's willing to have an on-air discussion about race. "I very much want to listen to the youth," Osbourne said. "Do I have my finger on the pulse of what's going on, with the Black situation in this country? No. ... The ins and the outs of the way the younger generation feel right now, I don't have my finger on the pulse...I own up to what I did," she adds. "I can't not own up. I said what I said. I got too personal with Sheryl (Underwood). I should've never said stop her tears. She was hurting as I was hurting."
