Osbourne did not look happy. She wore a look of worry on her face and was photographed sporting a frown.

Rocking a white zip-up hoodie, the former The Talk host didn't try to hide from nearby paparazzi.

In the never-before-heard audio -- obtained by Daily Mail -- Welteroth is heard comforting a bawling Osbourne and telling her, "I know you're not racist" in a dressing room following the heated on-air exchange.

Welteroth also makes it a point to tell Osbourne she's been "set up," claiming producers wanted her to deliver the question that sparked the explosive debate.

As Radar reported, Osbourne and Underwood were at each other's throats on the March 10 show after Sharon stood up for her friend Piers Morgan after he questioned whether Meghan Markle was telling the truth about contemplating suicide.

Underwood sparked the on-air tension when she asked Osbourne, "What would you say to people who may feel that, while you're standing by your friend, it appears that you gave validation or safe haven to something that he has uttered that is racist, even if you don't agree?"

She then claimed her co-star was giving "validation'" to Piers' "racist" views.

"I said to them, this is going to be a train wreck," Welteroth is heard saying backstage. "Sharon, I'm just so sorry that that went the way that it went."

Following an internal investigation, Osbourne exited the long-running talk show.
