Well, this was surprising… but at least it wasn’t American Idol related.
America’s Got Talent judge has quit the hit television series, according to TMZ.
She’s been with the show since season 2 and NBC is said to be be surprised by her exit, as she hasn’t formally told them of her departure. However, she did leave the most interesting Tweet to fellow judge, Howard Stern:
“My darling @howardstern, money is not the reason I’m not returning to @nbcagt, it’s because …”
No one knows of the actual “because” but there have been some interesting developments in Sharon’s life this year that could shed some light on her leaving: the show switched from LA to NYC to accommodate Stern joining the series and Sharon’s son, Jack was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis earlier this year.
