DANCING with the Stars executives "want to hire Sharon Osbourne for their new season" after her shocking exit from The Talk.
Sharon, 68, found herself in hot water after co-host Sheryl Underwood pointed out problematic behavior, which caused the British star to leave the show.
Dancing With The Stars is considering Sharon for the upcoming season, The Sun can exclusively reveal.
Sources close to production told The Sun execs are "milling over" bringing Sharon in, but that they are "watching and waiting" to see how the next couple of days play out, as she gets ready for a tell-all interview with Bill Maher.
The source said: "Sharon is on the casting list for the show as a prime target to bring in an A lister and generate interest.
"But this is only still within the ranks of the executive team and no invitation has been extended.
"The mood is that they want to see how the current scandal involving Sharon and her close friend Sheryl Underwood plays out. There is a feeling that the war of words is not over."
The source further claimed Sharon "loves to have the last word, especially given her stance that she did not feel she was being racist or supporting racism in their on-screen fight over Piers."
On the March 10 episode of The Talk, Sharon and Sheryl, 57, butted heads when Ozzy Osbourne's wife showed support for her friend, Piers Morgan, who had made harsh comments about Meghan Markle.
Sharon left the show after she claimed she was set up by production to have the fight with Sheryl, as staff believes she plans to "rip her former friend and co-host to shreds" in her interview, as The Sun previously revealed.
The source continued: "In today's world anything can happen, so they are feeling out the next few weeks. Sure, they would love to have her on the show, but potentially there may be issues with controversy and pushback from viewers."
Despite the potential backlash the show may experience, the source claimed that DWTS doesn't have an issue with it.
In fact, the source claimed: "They have hired marginalizing celebrities to bring eyeballs to their series – I mean we cannot forget Sean Spicer, Tonya Harding, Carole Baskin and Paula Deen. Paula actually used the N-word and was still selected to appear on the show."
Among those with an important voice on whether Sharon gets hired or not is executive producer and host, Tyra Banks.
The source added: "Tyra will have an important voice in this decision-making process.
"The nature of woke TV culture currently means that casting parameters will be assessed in greater detail. Now if any offer is made, the question is would Sharon consider that?"
The source further claimed that there are other controversial figures being considered such as Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden's son, and Claudia Conway, who recently participated in American Idol and was cut by Katy Perry.
Bachelor Colton Underwood, who recently came out as gay, and Dr. Anthony Fauci are also being considered.
The Sun reached out to ABC and they refused to comment on the casting information.
Following that fateful March 10 episode, The Talk went on a month-long hiatus during which an internal investigation was being conducted.
Sharon, who was the last remaining original host, is reportedly completely done with The Talk – both as a host and a viewer.
A source told Page Six she didn’t watch the return episode on Monday.
Sheryl spoke all about the upsetting argument she and the former host had during the new episode.
The insider said: “She didn’t watch the show. She doesn’t care. It’s really behind her. That’s not what her life is about.
“She doesn’t dwell on s**t. There’s too many exciting things happening in her life.”
Earlier this week, Sheryl broke down in tears and said she has "PSTD" from her battle with Sharon.
She added: "I didn't want to escalate things with Sharon because I thought I was having a conversation with a friend.
"But also I feel I had to be an example for others to follow because I didn't want to be perceived as the angry Black woman. That really scared me, I didn't want to be that.
"I wanted to remain calm and focused. I just feel the trauma. I feel fearful and apprehensive."
The show currently stars Sheryl, Carrie Ann, Elaine Welteroth and Amanda Kloots.
