Piers Morgan recalls Sharon Osbourne’s ‘seething’ reaction to a story he wrote about her

Piers Morgan, 56, knows he isn’t everyone’s cup of tea – nor does he care. But even his closest allies have had run-ins with him in the past, one being Sharon Osbourne, who was left “seething” after he wrote a story on her that she wasn’t happy with at all.

You’re just Simon Cowell without the talent or f***ing class darling

Looking back on their turbulent friendship following the recent debacle where she backed him over his Good Morning Britain exit and subsequently lost her job as a result of further comments on her own US talk show The Talk, Piers remembered one time he well and truly got on her wick.

After her first TV interview with Bill Maher after the drama with her co-star Sheryl Underwood, Sharon was grilled about her history with Piers that goes back years.

She was asked about their fight at a private NBC talent introduction dinner in Beverly Hills when they were due to start filming America’s Got Talent, and Piers couldn’t wait to provide eager fans with some more detail on the argument.

In his most recent Mail Online column, the presenter recalled: “It was the night before we first started filming together.

“Sharon was seething from something I’d written about her.

“‘Forgiven me yet?’ I asked, as the main course arrived. ‘No, you pen-pushing little t***,’ she snarled.”

He remembered the “lively exchange of insults” lasted about ten minutes, with Sharon spitting: “‘You’re just Simon Cowell without the talent or f***ing class darling.’”

Piers continued: “Suddenly, she leapt up, sending her chair crashing, and marched over to grab my neck and prod my face like she was testing a steak to see if it was cooked.

“At which point, AGT host Jerry Springer, a man well-versed in dealing with confrontation, intervened to lead a still raging Sharon out of the room.

“‘I’m not finished with you!’ she shrieked, as she disappeared from view.”

Piers admitted a producer was a bit taken aback why the reaction, but the specticle didn’t last for much longer.

“At 2am, Sharon rang. ‘Ozzy’s told me to stop being silly,’ she chuckled. ‘Sorry for being a naughty puss…’” he penned.

“At filming the next day, we had a great time, clowning around as if nothing had happened, while the American executives shook their heads in disbelief, muttering: ‘These Brits are even crazier than we thought…’”

He added: “True, but Sharon’s definitely crazier than most, and ferociously loyal, which is why I love her.”

It wasn’t the only time the pair have had a barney.

The outspoke host also opened up on the time he received a hefty slap across the face from his pal, following another fight in a Mr Chow’s restaurant.

On Maher’s HBO show, Piers revealed the US host had said to her: “‘Piers is an old friend of yours,'”

“‘You slapped him, you got drunk together, he’s seen your t**s…’”

“‘Just one!’ stammered Sharon, who looked as stunned as me at this left-field series of bombshell allegations.

“‘He’s a mate of mine but I did slap him. We had a fight in Mr Chow’s one night and it was brilliant.’
