The Talk co-host SHARON OSBOURNE secretly plots to develop her own gabfest behind JULIE CHEN’s back!

The ENQUIRER has learned that Sharon has been holding hush-hush meetings with former co-hosts and close pals Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini, who were dumped from “The Talk” after one season following skirmishes with Julie.

“Sharon wants to put together a daily talk show with Leah and Holly at the helm,” divulged an insider. “It’s no secret that Sharon doesn’t want to work with Julie, but since she’s still contractually bound to co-host ‘The Talk,’ she’ll only produce the new project.

“You can bet Julie won’t be happy when she hears what Sharon’s planning!”

As The ENQUIRER previously reported, Sharon, 58, Leah, 41, and Holly, 47, were fed up with the controlling ways of Julie, who is the wife of CBS chief Les Moonves. While Leah and Holly were shown the door, Sharon has said she is planning to “take a little break” from the show this season to spend time with her husband Ozzy.

“Keeping Up with the Kardashians” mom Kris Jenner will guest host alongside Julie, Sharon and show creator/former “Roseanne” star Sara Gilbert. Comedian Sheryl Underwood also joined the cast.

But according to the insider, it’s only a matter of time before Sharon leaves “The Talk” permanently.

“Sharon hopes CBS will let her out of her contract early so she and Holly and Leah can all be on TV together again.

“And they would love to have their new show go up against Julie!”
