Sharon, 69, held nothing back when discussing her former employer.
TMZ caught up with Sharon while she was out grocery shopping with husband Ozzy Osbourne.
She told the outlet there’s no way she would ever return to the show’s cast.
“I would never go back to that show again ever,” she told the outlet.
Sharon went on to say: “No, because CBS sucks big time d***,” she told the outlet.
Asked about her firing, she said: “Hey, look, it happens. I honestly don’t care. It’s not like I need it.”

Sharon was also asked if her decision not to return signaled an end to her career.
She replied: “F*** no.”
After Sharon’s exit from the show, The Talk brought on Natalie Morales as host.
Natalie was a quick hit with fans and the show saw its highest ratings since Sharon’s unexpected exit in November 2021.
Sharon isn’t the only star who left the show prior to ratings soaring.
Carrie Ann Inaba and Elaine Welteroth also called it quits.
The Sun exclusively revealed ratings for the week of October 25 to 29 in 2021 reached 1,526,000 viewers.
Soap Opera Digest noted these were the highest ratings the show received in a span of eight months.
In March, when ratings were high, original host Sharon left the show after an on-air fight with Sheryl Underwood over her decision to stand by Piers Morgan amid his criticism of Meghan Markle.
A source told The Sun exclusively that The Talk crew was thrilled over Natalie’s addition, with the insider adding that she was hired as the “secret sauce to help improve ratings.”
The insider went on: “She is someone in the industry that no one has an unkind word to say about and that reputation is well deserved.
“To say she has been welcomed with open arms is an understatement. Love at first sight would be the more accurate way to put it.”
NATALIE TO THE RESCUE
Fans credited Natalie for saving the show, while calling for the firing of Sheryl, 57.
One wrote on The Talk’s Facebook page: “Natalie is a seasoned professional journalist. She’s doing great interacting with the audience and guests.
“Sheryl is going to get jealous because everybody likes Natalie more and try to concoct a ‘plan’ to get rid of her as well.”
A second chimed in: “How did The Talk score with Natalie Morales!? What a great add! She brings much needed credibility to the show and has such a charismatic personality. She blends in well with Akbar, Jerry and Amanda.
“Now they just need to replace Sheryl and the show can be a hit!!”
A third commenter wrote: “Good show today, Natalie and Akbar are excellent additions to the show. I love Amanda, she’s genuine and a beautiful person in and out. Jerry is the needed humor to make the show lighter.
“But I still don’t understand Sheryl’s part in this show, she is totally out place, and she knows it. I think is time for her to concentrate on being a comedian, and not a talk show host.”
Sharon previously claimed on The Megyn Kelly Show on SiriusXM that Sheryl was sent to anger management three times for allegedly “mistreating producers.”
During the show, Sharon claimed: “Sheryl had three complaints about her from different producers about the way she treated them.
“They called me and I said, ‘You cannot get rid of Sheryl. There is no way. She can’t take that. You just can’t do it.’
“So they sent her to anger management. So, it’s alright to treat producers that way, but I can’t say anything to a co-host.”
The show currently stars Natalie, Sheryl, Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, Amanda Kloots and Jerry O’Connell.
