Sharon Osbourne told The NY Post that she’s quitting AGT because she got in a nasty fight with NBC over Jack getting fired from Stars and Stripes (a new series which will pit celebrities against one another in military training exercises) right after he got diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She said, “I just can’t be fake. It’s discrimination, and it was badly handled.”
Cliff notes of the Jack firing: He got hired for Stars and Stripes, didn’t sign a formal contract and was moving forward in good faith, got an email welcoming him to the NBC family, then he got diagnosed, and just two days before he was supposed to report to work he got an email from the show’s producer stating that, ”the rigors of the show were too intense for him.” Jack offered to take out his own insurance policy for the show, but the producers declined. NBC offered to pay Jack his appearance fee, but Jack didn’t want the money according to Sharon, he wanted the gig.
So there it is! Sharon Osbourne is mother of the year! I know a lot of people aren’t Sharon fans, but I really love her. She always stands true for what she believes in and takes care of her family like a pitbull. Most showbiz people wouldn’t go to battle for their family the way Sharon does because it’s all about them. She’s one tough brave cookie and I stand by her choice to leave AGT.
Side note: NBC is dumb for letting Jack go…having Jack on the show could have been great press for them. People want somebody to root for.
