“I haven’t spoken to Julie in forever,” she said during her appearance on the Jim & Sam Show on SiriusXM radio. “It’s really, really tough on her."
But she also had nothing but good things to say about her former co-worker.
“I loved working with Julie,” she shared. “She was, you know, great. So professional to work with.”
The feeling is mutual. In Chen's goodbye video, she got choked up while addressing Osbourne and Gilbert specifically.
"To Sara and Sharon, we have been together since day one at The Talk," she said. "I spent every day with you both. I will always treasure our friendship, the great parenting advice from both of you, and the memories and laughs and private jokes that the three of us have shared. We are the original Three Musketeers. I love you all. And I know this show, and the sisterhood it stands for, will live on for many, many more years to come. You ladies got this, and I cannot be more proud to call you my friends. I love you."
