Sharon Osbourne: 'View' hosts can go (bleep) themselves

Sharon Osbourne of "The Talk" didn't mince words on "The Arsenio Hall Show" when Hall asked her about competing talk show "The View."

After emptying her red plastic cup of an unidentified beverage, Osbourne tossed the cup over her shoulder and got down to business.

"Let's cut to the chase," she said. "Cut to the chase! Stop being polite! The situation is ... Barbara. Idolize her. Divine. She is superhuman. I love Barbara Walters. The rest can go (bleep) themselves."

Osbourne and the other "Talk" hosts were all appearing on Hall's show, and while Osbourne was blunt about "The View," she was equally honest about other entertainment and newsy issues Hall brought up.

When the name of Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson's doctor, came up, Osbourne at first didn't know who he was. When Hall explained it was Jackson's doctor, who just left prison after serving time for involuntary manslaughter in the singer's death, Osbourne declared Murray a "hideous little man."

Hall also mentioned that Germany was now allowing parents to leave the gender blank on birth certificates in a nod to the small number of babies born with indeterminate sex organs, Osbourne taught the American audience some new British slang.

"They have willies and toonties," she said of the rare births. "And I think it's quite fabulous to have both."

When Hall asked the hosts about Khloe Kardashian Odom's husband Lamar Odom, who's battled substance abuse issues, Osbourne said the couple needed to give things a chance. "It's only a bit of crack, darling," she said. "Just stick in there, it'll all be fine. Let's all drink to Khloe!"
