"America's Got Talent" judge Sharon Osbourne takes a swipe at her network after accusing them of discriminating against her son
Despite the fact that she's leaving "America's Got Talent," Sharon Osbourne is a big fan of the show and her co-stars.
The network that carries it? Not so much.
The "AGT" judge — who has stated her intention to leave the show after the current season — restated her intention to depart on "Late Show With David Letterman" Monday night.
Oh, and she also compared her relationship with NBC to an infamous boating disaster.
"I've done ['America's Got Talent'] for six years; this show is the most fabulous show to work on," Osbourne told show host David Letterman. "But it's just time. You know when your gut tells you; time to move on to other things."
Asked if the fond feelings extended to NBC, Osbourne offered a not-so-cryptic reference.
"Wasn't it terrible about the Titanic?" Osbourne asked. "Shame, wasn't it?"
Wow — not much question about who the iceberg is in that relationship.
Osbourne has been outspoken in claiming that her son Jack was dropped from NBC's new reality show "Stars Earn Stripes" — which pits celebrities against each other in military-style exercises — after he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
NBC denied Osbourne's claim, saying that they offered the younger Osbourne other positions on the series, which he turned down.
"Although we did not ask Jack to participate in the competition, we were able to offer him two substantial alternative roles on the show, both of which he declined. This network does not discriminate on any basis," NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said.
Watch Osbourne sink her fangs into the hand that feeds in the video.
