In March 2021, Osbourne vehemently defended Piers Morgan's controversial comments over Meghan Markle's confessions of mental health struggles. On TV, Osbourne demanded that Underwood "educate" her over why standing with Morgan was problematic, while Underwood attempted to discuss the issue. Further allegations of Osbourne exhibiting racist or bullying behavior emerged, and Mrs. O eventually exited The Talk.

[There was] a memorial service on the lot. We felt so loved and appreciated and Sara Gilbert came. It was just so nice to see her. We all still talk to each other in different ways and you see Julie [Chen] at Big Brother on the lot. We text and we talk. Eve, with the baby. We all keep in touch as much as we can without being intrusive.
