6. Leah Remini

Leah Remini was dismissed from The Talk after it’s first season in 2011. Initially she blamed Sharon Osbourne for her dismissal, but late claimed that it was because of her outspoken personality. “I think it’s because I wasn’t my best self there, I don’t know how to conduct myself,” she said. “Because I could not subscribe to a certain way of doing things. The point is, most smart people in this business shut their mouth. … If I wanted to be in this kind of show I need to shut my mouth and do what my bosses tell me to do. I can’t do that. That [was] maybe not a good fit in that way.”
