Sharon Osbourne regrets making comments about Teresa Giudice being raped in prison.

“We’ve had a lot of people that have been on social media online saying I shouldn’t made the comment about rape and the thing that in the context that it was used,” Osbourne said on Tuesday’s episode of “The Talk." “Really, people who know me know that I would never mean harm by saying that to people who have been in that situation.”

Osbourne, 63, continued by calling her comments “throwaway remarks,” saying they weren’t meant to hurt anyone. “So I do apologize if I have offended or hurt anybody other than that woman we were talking about.”

On Monday, Ozzy Osbourne’s often controversial wife caused a frenzy when she suggested that Giudice could have enjoyed being raped behind bars.

“But for you, defrauding and somewhat of a two-bit con woman, you actually revolt me,” Osbourne slammed the reality star, who released a memoir on Monday. “And the thing is, it’s just so stereotypical that somebody who’s a two-bit celebrity goes into prison for whatever reason, comes out. They sell a story. Everybody wants to hear their story. Were you raped, love? God, I hope she wasn’t. At least she would have gotten some enjoyment out of it.”

Giudice’s memoir, “Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again,” has made headlines in recent weeks. She’s angered her former prison inmates with tales of lesbian sex in her cell. Page Six also learned that with this memoir, she abruptly hired, then fired, her first co-writer.
