Leah Remini was "not asked back" to the CBS morning talk show "The Talk" seven months ago and now she's claimed that Sharon Osbourne got her and fellow co-host Holly Robinson Peete fired.
"Sharon thought me and Holly were 'Ghetto,' (her words) we were not funny, awkward and didn't know ourselves," Remini tweeted on Monday in response to a fan's question, adding later, "She said she was the reason we were let go."
