it was her decision to leave America’s Got Talent because of “issues” she had with its home network, NBC. She expanded on that further Tuesday, claiming preferential treatment was given to the male stars.” data-reactid=”34″ type=”text”>On Monday’s episode of The Talk, Osbourne said it was her decision to leave America’s Got Talent because of “issues” she had with its home network, NBC. She expanded on that further Tuesday, claiming preferential treatment was given to the male stars.

“Anyway, it is a boys club. Yes, they brought Howie in, he got his own plane,” Osbourne alleged. “I love Howie and I don’t begrudge anyone earning what they earn. Good for you, God bless you. But, when my old ass has been there shooting the show, and I get an American Airlines ticket and he’s in a private plane. And I get that because I’m me, and I’m not in the club, and I’m not one of the guys that go out looking for young women.”

Osbourne clarified that it’s “not Howie” who goes out looking for young women before throwing some shade at L.A. Reid.

“We remain committed to ensuring a respectful workplace for all employees and take very seriously any questions about workplace culture,” the statement read. “We are working with Ms. Union through her representatives to hear more about her concerns, following which we will take whatever next steps may be appropriate.”

Osbourne followed that up by declaring on-air of the CBS show, “NBC can kiss my ass.”
