In the first episode of “The Talk” since Sharon Osbourne’s exit, the hosts had a frank discussion about race and racism in the workplace. And, according to Sheryl Underwood, the explosive conversation that set everything in motion on March 10 required her to hold back a bit, out of fear of being dubbed an “angry Black woman.” During “The Talk’s” March 10 show, Osbourne came to the defense of longtime friend Piers Morgan after he was criticized for making disparaging comments about Meghan Markle. Some critics, including Underwood, said Morgan’s words were racially motivated (Markle, whose mother is Black, is biracial), leading to an on-air meltdown in which Osbourne said she felt like she was “about to be put in the electric chair” for having a friend they thought was racist. Monday’s conversation was led by Dr. Donald E. Grant, an expert on diversity, equity, inclusion and justice, who kicked things off by turning to Underwood. In recounting the events of the March show, the co-host revealed that, in reality, she restrained herself from saying more. Also Read: Sheryl Underwood Denies 'The Talk' Producers 'Set Up' Sharon Osbourne Underwood noted that she didn’t escalate the situation because she didn’t want to be tagged with the “angry Black woman” stereotype. She added that the real reason she teared up while listening to Osbourne’s words was simply that she felt she had to maintain her composure. “I’m not tearing up because you’ve hurt me or I want some sympathy,” Underwood said to Grant. “I’m tearing up because I have to restrain that.” Co-host Elaine Welteroth understood Underwood’s motivations, admitting that she acted similarly for the exact same reason. Welteroth said that if anyone rewatches the March 10 episode, “You will see two Black women walking the same tightrope Black women are walking in the workplace.” Soon after Osbourne’s remarks, CBS launched an internal review into the on-air comments about racism and allegations of racially insensitive behavior behind the scenes at “The Talk.” On March 26, Osbourne exited the show. Underwood noted on Monday that, because of that investigation, she has not communicated with Osbourne since. “I have not spoken to, and do not have any phone calls missed or received, but there were text messages sent to me,” Underwood said. She added that she had not responded to those text messages, as she was unsure if she was even allowed to talk to Osbourne while the investigation was ongoing. That said, Underwood made it clear that if she ran into Osbourne in person, and Osbourne greeted her “warmly and sincerely,” she would return the courtesy because Underwood has considered them friends for years.

Jack Ma's Ant Group - which owns China's largest digital payment platform Alipay and is an affiliate of e-commerce giant Alibaba - announced on Monday that it will undergo a sweeping restructuring on the order of the Chinese government.The crackdown on Ant Group underscores Beijing's determination to rein in Big Tech.Chinese regulators had already derailed Ant Group's record $37 billion IPO in November. And, just two days ago, Jack Ma's Alibaba Group was hit with a record $2.75 billion-dollar antitrust fine as China tightens controls on the booming "platform economy." The overhaul of Ant Group includes turning itself into a financial holding firm, a move expected to curb its profitability and valuation by cutting back on some of its freewheeling businesses. Ant will also be subjected to tougher regulatory oversight and capital requirements and will be forced to cut links between its hugely popular payments app Alipay and its other businesses, which had been viewed as a big advantage due to Alipay's vast trove of customer data and more than 730 million monthly users in China.U.S.-listed shares of Alibaba were up 8% after Monday's announcement, tracking a similar gain for its Hong Kong shares earlier in the day, with investors cheering the end of uncertainty for the e-commerce giant after the antitrust fine.

Harvey Weinstein was indicted on 11 sexual assault charges in Los Angeles, his attorney Norman Effman revealed at an extradition hearing for the former producer in Erie County on Monday. Though still under seal, Effman said the indictment is “very similar to the original felony complaint but not identical” because one of the charges was “changed somewhat, narrowing the time period.” A spokesperson for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office declined to comment. Also Read: Harvey Weinstein Appeals New York Rape Conviction Weinstein’s extradition to L.A. faced another delay after Effman successfully requested that he be given time to file a writ of habeas corpus due to a missing signature on some paperwork. Effman also argued that Weinstein’s health was a prohibiting factor in extraditing the former producer to L.A. to begin his separate criminal trial there. “He is almost technically blind at this point and is in need of surgery,” Effman said. “We also brought his other medical issues to California’s attention, including his cardiac issues, his back issues, his sleep apnea. The medications he’s on all require intensive medical treatment.” Effman continued, “Look, the reality is that Mr. Weinstein is serving a 23-year term in a maximum-security facility in New York State. We know he’s not going anywhere, we know he’s available for whatever proceedings are necessary in California. This is not a case with a fugitive who can make bail.” Also Read: New Harvey Weinstein Sexual Assault Accuser: He Told Me to 'Pretend He Was Someone Like Zac Efron' Weinstein’s next extradition hearing is scheduled for April 30.
