Piers Morgan Remembers His Rough First Meeting With Sharon Osbourne (VIDEO)

Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne on 'The Talk'Dainty. Shy. Well-heeled. These are descriptions that do not apply to Sharon Osbourne. Just ask Piers Morgan, who described his first meeting with Osbourne Monday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). The two work together as judges on 'America's Got Talent', but according to Morgan, Jerry Springer needed to be led away from the scene of their first meeting for fear it might scar him emotionally.

The first meeting was a dinner, and Morgan said Osbourne had had a glass of wine or two, and ended up sneaking up behind him. "It ended up with her coming up behind me," he said, "in front of all these executives from NBC, strangling me, trying to kill me, and screaming, 'You're just a Simon Cowell wannabe.'"

Osbourne hid behind a couple of purple info sheets in embarrassment as Morgan told the story. She was perhaps most ashamed as Morgan described a phone call later that night, during which Morgan half-remembers Osbourne saying, "Ozzy says I've got to say sorry." Ozzy Osbourne, ever the voice of reason.
