Sharon Osbourne Not Returning to America’s Got Talent?


Sharon Osbourne is confusing fans of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, as she writes a cryptic tweet to fellow judge Howard Stern yesterday that may or may not be a hint that she’s leaving the show.

Osbourne told Stern yesterday, “My darling [Howard], money is not the reason I’m not returning to [America’s Got Talent], it’s because…” suggesting that she was leaving the show and negotiations of her salary wasn’t the reason behind her departure. Unfortunately, Osbourne left her tweet without any further elaboration.

Well, it turns out, Osbourne was replying to a Monday tweet from The Howard Stern Show’s Twitter account, in which someone had tweeted Stern wasn’t sure whether he’ll return to America’s Got Talent for another season… and added Osbourne may not come back either if she doesn’t get a bigger paycheck.

Meanwhile, NBC Entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt said the network has heard nothing about Osbourne wanting to leave the show, adding, “This is coming out of context and sort of spontaneously, and we don’t even know what’s going on. And it’s probably much ado about nothing.”
