Sharon Osbourne in great spirits after exit from ‘The Talk’

Sharon Osbourne appeared in great spirits Tuesday as she was spotted for the first since her contentious departure from “The Talk,” which a source told us left her with a multimillion-dollar payout.

On her way into lunch at the Sunset Marquis hotel in Hollywood, Osbourne gave a thumbs-up to a videographer who asked her how she’s doing. The former host then threw up the peace sign and appeared to smile underneath her face mask when asked if everything was good.

For the outing, Osbourne, 68, opted for a classic look that included a loosely-fitted black suit and white shirt accessorized with pearls.

Osbourne exited the CBS talk show on March 26 following accusations of racism.

“Sharon is walking away with a $5 to $10 million minimum payout and was able to spin that it was her decision [to leave the show],” a source previously told Page Six.

A separate source added that, under her departure agreement, Osbourne is free to tell her side of the story.

“Sharon will talk when she is ready,” the source said. “She still wants to give her side of the story. She has been on that show for 11 years and knows all the secrets.”
