America’s Got Talent judge Sharon Osbourne is quitting the show – at least, if her Twitter feed is to be believed.
Newbie AGT judge Howard Stern hinted via his Twitter account that he would be leaving the show after the season wraps, also hinting that Osbourne is on the outs as well, reports Hollywood Life. “@HowardStern isn’t sure if he’ll do another season and says Sharon Osbourne may not come back unless she gets more money,” read the tweet from Stern’s radio show’s official account. Osbourne apparently didn’t take too kindly to Stern’s tweet, replying that she wasn’t leaving because of money. “My darling @howardstern, money is not the reason I’m not returning to @nbcagt, it’s because …” and that’s where it cuts off, reports TMZ.
“Wait, what?” said the entirety of the celebrity media machine.
Literally no one knows whether or not this series of tweets is to be taken seriously, especially since there haven’t been any rumors that Stern and Osbourne were considering leaving AGT in the first place. However, the third AGT judge, Howie Mandel, has hinted that this season may be his last, reports the Winnipeg Free Press. He was asked to come back, but played coy on whether or not he’ll be playing judge for another season. “I said, you know, let me just see what it’s like to do the radio show and ‘AGT’ at the same time. So, I’ll be finding that out this week. I really like doing the show though. I really like being a part of it,” Mandel said.
