That’s got to be one brutal morning after.

Sharon Osbourne apologized to the ladies of The View on Thursday’s episode of The Talk for comments she made on The Arsenio Hall Show, Wednesday night.

On the late-night show, Osbourne took aim at her View competitors, calling host and co-creator Barbara Walters “divine” and “superhuman,” before saying “the rest can f— themselves.” Naturally, the clip quickly went viral online, and Osbourne took responsibility for her actions.

The biggest celebrity feuds

“I want to apologize to Jenny [McCarthy], Sherri [Shepherd] and Whoopi [Goldberg], who are all accomplished, self-made women who have amazing careers. They have achieved so much,” Osbourne said. “Please understand, it was my irreverent, irreverent behavior and no disrespect meant. And I’m not a person that is mean. I’m really not and I apologize.”

Co-host Julie Chen backed up Osbourne and discussed just how much The Talk hosts have been asked to compare themselves to the talent on The View over the last four years. “It was a joke. That’s what everyone needs to know,” Chen added. “We love the ladies of The View.”

What do you think of Osbourne’s apology?
