The Twitterverse is OVERFLOWING with reactions to Dick Clark's death!!
Earlier we discussed Ryan Seacrest, who became very close with his lifelong idol after receiving the New Year's Rockin' Eve torch in '06. He let everyone know how "deeply saddened" he was with his Twitter response.
But other celebrities are chiming in too!
The mourning is very hard, especially since nearly everyone in Hollywood has been impacted or influenced by the late, great entertainer.
Celebs have been tweeting:
As we reported yesterday, Leah Remini tweeted that Sharon Osbourne was the reason she and Holly Robinson Peete were fired from The Talk. Now, Sharon is taking to her Twitter and speaking up!
The feud continued late last night when Sharon typed a series of tweets in her defense, saying:
Whoa! The Talk dramz continues!!!
Leah Remini shared some enlightening and scathing new information about how she and Holly Peete got the boot from The Talk earlier this season. According to Leah, Sharon Osbourne had Leah and Holly fired from the show for being "ghetto!"
For being what now?! Her tweets read:
Get. It. Gurl.
After that whole debacle with The Talk, we are SO happy that Leah Remini will be coming back to TV.
She just landed a talent development deal with ABC where the studio will develop a comedy project that she will star in and produce.
Yes! Yes! Yes! Leah needs a place where she can SHINE and hopefully this new project will let her do just that.
Just give Leah her own sitcom/talk show already!
Meanwhile, Leah's pal and former co-host on The Talk Holly Robinson Peete also booked her first post-Talk gig with an arc on CBS' Mike and Molly.
Congrats, ladies! This makes us happy! We weren't too happy the way CBS left you two high and dry. Better things for you lie ahead!

So disappointing. We really liked her on the show. She was a real key element in making the panel work, we thought.
This morning, Leah Remini made the official announcement via her Twitter that she won't be returning to The Talk this fall. She wouldn't speak to the effect of losing Holly Robinson Peete, but she did take a moment to thank her fans for their support and clarify that she was not asked back - she did not quit. She tweeted:
We'll miss them!
Last week, we heard that Holly Robinson Peete would probably be leaving The Talk…and now we're hearing that Leah Remini is most likely on her way out as well.
CBS' The Talk has been picked up by NBC's British digital channel DivaTV. The network will air TWO episodes of The Talk every night starting at 7 p.m.
The show will premiere on the network starting July 4.
Here's what CBS Studios International's Senior VP for Europe Stephen Tague had to say about it:
