The wife of Ozzy Osbourne sparks speculation that she won't return to the NBC talent show next season with her tweet that reads, 'money is not the reason I'm not returning to (AGT), it's because...'
After welcoming Howard Stern as Piers Morgan's replacement, "America's Got Talent" may see another change in the judge line-up next season. Sharon Osbourne was the one who sparked rumors that she would quit the show after the end of this season as she tweeted on Tuesday, July 24, "My darling @HowardStern, money is not the reason I'm not returning to @nbcagt, it's because..."
The Osbourne matriarch has not continued the tweet and has not explained her cryptic message. Meanwhile, NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt refused to discuss the matter during the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, stating, "I have nothing to say about Sharon Osbourne. We don't even know what is going on. It is probably much ado about nothing."
Mrs. Osbourne, who currently also serves as "The Talk" co-host, signed up for the NBC reality show in the second season to replace singer Brandy. She is now joined by Howie Mandel and shock jock Stern in the judging panel.
Paul Telegdy, NBC president of alternative and late-night programming, has said that the executives would love to have Stern returning for another season. "We'd be delighted if Howard wants to come back," he said.
