Sharon Osbourne, The Talk, and the dramatic flair-up between co-stars have been topics of conversation for weeks. Ozzy Osbourne has decided to weigh in on the issue discussing how his wife is fairing now that the dust is starting to settle. 

The Black Sabbath frontman discussed the subject during his Ozzy Speaks podcast on SiriusXM on May 17. In true rockstar fashion, he was not afraid to get candid or stick up for Sharon.

"She’s been through the mill of it and, you know, all I can tell you if my wife was slightly racist, I’ll tell you she’s possibly the most unracist person I’ve ever met. And I’m not just saying that" he said. 

Although Sharon had a very difficult time adjusting to her exit from the show and the allegations that came before it, Ozzy claims she's "weathered the storm."

At the beginning of the talk show tension, the rocker simply took to Instagram to show where he stood. A short, expletive-filled caption told us all we needed to know, "I can't f****** hear you. #teamsharon,"

Earlier this year, a controversial argument unfolded between Sharon and her co-host Sheryl Underwood. The two debated whether or not Piers Morgan's comments on Megan Markle were racist. (Note that Osbourne and Morgan are longtime friends.) This ultimately resulted in a huge rift between the hosts, racism and bullying accusations against Sharon, and Sharon's departure from The Talk.

Since her exit, Sharon has been on Real Time with Bill Maher. While on the show, she revealed that's she's attempting to move on, but did admit that her journey was not simple. 

“I’ve been called so many things in my life. I am so used to being called names but racist is one I will not take,” she said. 

Perhaps in time, there will be unity amongst The Talk's costars. When asked how she'd handle a run-in with Sharon, Sheryl responded fairly well. 

"People have asked me, 'Well, if you see Sharon, what would you do?' If she greeted me warmly and sincerely, I would give her back the same because we've been on this show for 10 years."
