Leah Remini has taken to her Twitter account to reveal why she was fired from CBS’s daytime talk show, ‘The Talk’, and it appears Sharon Osbourne is to blame.

Both Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete, who were original co-hosts of the show along with Osbourne, Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert and Marissa Jaret Winokur, had been kicked off the show after the first season in 2011. Peete is the wife of ex-NFL quarterback Rodney Peete and appeared on Donald Trump’s ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’

But now the former “Kings of Queens” actress has told her followers that the two were dropped before the second season because Osbourne said they were too “ghetto.”

She also pointed out an interview Osbourne conducted on the Howard Stern show were she said, “Some people dont really know who they are, and you have to know who you are when you’re in something like this. You can’t pretend to be something you’re not. You have to know your brand. You can’t be all things to everyone.”

Osbourne it turn defended herself by, yep you guessed it, by tweeting, “Leah knows that I have never been in the position to hire or fire anyone on the show. That being said, my only wish is that Leah would just stop all this negative, unprofessional, and childish behavior.”

Osbourne concluded by tweeting, “It’s been seven months. It’s time to move on. Leah is a very talented actress and I only wish her happiness and success.”

Remini and Peete have been replaced on the show by two female comedian’s Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler.
