The Talk - The Hosts Ask Sharon Osbourne About Her Unexpected 5 Week Break From 'The Talk'
Air Date: 09/12/16
Sharon Osbourne begins the new season of 'The Talk' by opening up about her surprise five-week absence from the show in 2015, which was the result of a "complete and utter breakdown." The hosts lend their support, and ask Sharon more about her brave reveal. Julie Chen asks about the treatment Sharon received at the hospital, and Sharon shares, "They were trying to diagnose me... they said that I needed to go to another facility because they weren't equipped to deal with mental issues." Aisha Tyler notes that mental illness can be a chemical imbalance, and Sharon adds, "The medicine is a nightmare because, you know, there are so many different medications to take, and it's what fits your chemical makeup. So it took me probably a good six, seven months to find the right combination of medications, the right therapist, and also I went into another treatment center to learn how to meditate and to do yoga and to find spirituality... all these things helped to get me where I am."
