Brandy's Got No "Talent"

4/9/2007 5:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brandy and Sharon OsbourneTMZ has learned that Brandy has been replaced by Sharon Osbourne as a judge on the upcoming season of "America's Got Talent."

While rumors have swirled that Osbourne was in talks with NBC, a well-placed source tells TMZ that the embattled R&B star is officially out -- and the rock and roll chatter queen is in. There was wide speculation over Brandy's role on the talent show following her involvement in a December freeway crash that claimed a woman's life. The City Attorney has yet to file charges against the "Moesha" star.

Previously, NBC announced that Jerry Springer would take over for Regis Philbin as the show's host. Regis is recuperating from bypass surgery.

A rep for "America's Got Talent," could not be reached.

FOR THE LAST TIME IT WAS AN ACCIDENT.
HOPE NONE OF YOU END UP HAVING AN AT-FAULT ACCIDENT AND LOSING YOUR JOBS BECAUSE OF IT. ATLEAST BRANDY DIDN'T DENY IT AND HIRE HIGH-POWER ATTORNEYS TO DEFEND A LIE - LIKE MOST CELEBS DO !!!

PRAYERS TO BRANDY AND HIS FAMILY

I like Brandy. Now it is going to be boring. NBC has really went down hill. I want be watching anymore. They are taking Passions off to put more boring news. Ratings are going down as well as it should. I like ABC now.

First off, it was a accident that could have been prevented. Brandi, was too busy yapping on her cell phone at the time, and speeding. This is not like there was an oil spot in the road, and an accidient occured.

I think Sharon, will be funny. She is actually a straight-shooter.

I LIKE BRANDY AND I AM SORRY TO HEAR SHE IS GOING THROUGH SUCH A TOUCH ORDEAL. MOST LIKELY THAT ACCIDENT VICTIM WHO DIED WAS NOT EVEN LEGAL IN THIS COUNTRY AND AGAIN - ANOTHER AMERICAN IS GETTING THE BRUNT OF PEOPLE WHO SHOULDN'T BE LIVING HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Don't make excuses for people...cmon...she was driving on a freeway in perfect weather. If she wasn't watching traffic in front of her what was she doing? And if she was watching she was going too fast or following too close. Sure accidents happen but if you FOCUS on your driving and drive defensively, they happen to other people...like Brandy. Hopefully she's not driving anymore!

Brandy is a Drunk Driving, Drug User and MURDERER !!! She will ultimately pay for her crimes against society. She must face the death penalty. I thank the good lord for states that clearly know how to puinish criminals by putting them to death.

Oooohh... This is so sad and soooo. serious. NBC is distancing themselves from Brandy. Sounds as if the District Atty is ready to file charges.That horrible day on the 405, a innocent women was killed.Speeds in excess of 60mph causing the death of this woman,a mother. Ooooh,so serious.

What kind of jerk implies that it was good for the woman that the criminally negligent no-talent Brandy killed because she was probably an illegal? Or, what about the neanderthal who claims Brandy apologized and took responsibility for this totally avoidable and preventable car accident? This uppity no-talent punk didn't apologize except through her publicist/agent and acted like it was no big deal and delayed saying anything to anybody about, period. Brandy should get the book thrown at her and do hard time. I also hope and pray the family of the innocent victim Brandy slaughtered because of her stupidity clean her out of every last penny. Let's not forget about the real victim of this senseless tragedy: HINT, IT WASN'T BRANDY!
