Howard Stern, at least, doesn’t want to see fellow judge Sharon Osbourne quit the show ‘America’s Got Talent.’ Sharon announced she was leaving after NBC allegedly backed out of selecting her son, Jack Osbourne, to participate in ‘Stars Earn Stripes.’ Sharon and Jack claim NBC didn’t select him after he announced his multiple sclerosis diagnosis. Howard said on his radio show last week:
“I am going to talk to her about it when I get on the show. I would say ‘Hey, Sharon, let’s talk about whether you are staying or going [because of] this thing with Jack. I think it would be compelling television.”
That didn’t happen. Howard later said:
“I’m more than sad. I think that there’s a great dynamic between Sharon, Howie [Mandel] and myself. I think we’ve been doing a good job judging. I enjoy working with Sharon, I’ve known her for years.”
“I hope some sort of miracle can happen. Maybe she’s got to walk into [NBC top boss] Bob Greenblatt’s office and get down on her knees and beg him. I don’t know what’s going on I’m, I’m not privy to it, but I hope that she does return and maybe has a change of heart.”
Something tells me Sharon feels pretty strongly about this, and since ‘Stars Earn Stripes’ is on the air, NBC can’t exactly reverse their decision, regardless of why they made it. Do you hope Sharon has a change of heart and stays on ‘America’s Got Talent’?
