    All Episodes Talk: Now We're Talking

    I love Mimi like cooked food, but does she have to still talk about her marriage to Tommy Mottola? I understand that the marriage had a major effect on her life, but they’ve been divorced for two decades now and have kids with other people. *Said like @Medicine Crow* Just sayin’! 😉 Carrie Ann, make some room on the “freak of nature” couch. I can pick things up with my feet too! Lol.

    What Are We Currently Reading?

    I found that strange as well. It seemed like after “Smoky and the Bandit” she fast forwarded through the rest of her film career (aside from “Lincoln”). As for her image, it’s like that old saying about looks being deceiving. It’s true of today’s celebrities (particularly child/teen stars) today, but especially back then. I remember reading Patty Duke’s book “Call Me Anna” (highly recommend it if you haven’t read it before) and she had the same “girl next door” image, but was experiencing so much dysfunction behind closed doors.

    Maybe I misspoke (or mistyped in this case), but I don’t think Leah meant that Sara did absolutely nothing as EP. She meant that although Sara had that role she was also working with someone who had a bit more of an advantage than she did being married to the head of the network. No shade to Julie from me because I actually enjoyed her on the show, but there’s no denying that she didn’t have that advantage. Actually Leah did take some responsibility. She said that doing a talk show was more daunting and nerve wracking than she’d anticipated and that her personality (she copped to being an asshole sometimes) wasn’t the right fit, but what angered her was being thrown under the bus by someone she thought was a friend (Sharon). To this day Sharon throws shade at Leah and the woman’s been off the show for nearly a decade and hasn’t publicly spoken about the firing since she wrote her book. You’re welcome, RCC. Karma doesn’t always show up when we want it to, but it’s always on time. We’ll see just how “untouchable” Mrs. O is when it comes for her.

    No, Julie didn’t control the show, but her husband was head of the network and she could’ve tried to keep Holly and Leah. Even if her attempts hadn’t been successful, she still could’ve done something. As for Sara being EP, Leah implied that it was mostly in name only and she didn’t want to make waves. Whatever happened between that disastrous dinner and Leah getting the call she’d been let go has never been publicly disclosed, but I’m dying to know. I’m especially curious as to why Holly was left hanging on a string for nearly a month before CBS finally fired her.

    All Episodes Talk: Now We're Talking

    I'll try to find the original post of it this weekend, but here's a quick run through: From day one Julie and Sharon didn't get along. Sharon had outrageous demands and would openly insult the network when she didn't get her way. She wanted to quit after the holidays, but Leah and Holly talked her into staying (Leah's mom told her to just let Sharon leave which would've been the best thing, but alas). Towards the end of the season Leah set up a private dinner with the co-hosts and their families and found Julie and Sharon speaking privately. When they came to the table Sharon (being the nasty POS she is) started in on Leah for expressing concern over Sharon working so hard and claimed Leah's family was connected to the mob. Leah ran out after telling Sharon off and Holly was the only one who checked on her (Sara kept her head down when it came to the fights). Not long after they wrapped the season, Leah's agent called to inform her that her contract wasn't being renewed. Why Julie chose to hitch her wagon to Sharon and get Leah and Holly fired, I don't know, but karma came for her. Too bad it hasn't come for the red headed wench yet.

    So that’s why the Talk hosts talked about not fighting on air and “lovefests”. I heard about Meghan calling Joy a bitch on the air (such a class act, that one), but didn’t know Joy referenced the show itself. Eh, I would’ve just ignored it if I were the Talk hosts. Panelists on both shows have publicly dissed each other so it’s nothing new. Not to get too far off topic, but I just finished “Ladies Who Punch” (Warning: Tea spilled may cause burns cus it’s PIPING HOT!!!) and The Talk came up a few times, but not once was Sharon’s name even mentioned. It made me laugh imagining her skimming through the index (“Osbourne, Sharon” or “Elphaba” or “Endora”...) and finding nothing. @RealHousewife, I highly recommend Leah Remini’s book “Troublemaker” not only for an inside view of the insanity of Scientology and how it destroys families, but also Leah’s account of The Talk drama. She said there’s a lot more she could’ve spilled, but she told A LOT!

    Aaw, I love “Splash”! Lol. I heard they’re remaking it with Channing Tatum as the “merman”. Not too thrilled to see a remake, but whatever. WTF is up with Sharon’s hair? It’s usually a mess even in the best of times, but this week? The worst I’ve ever seen it. And stop raking your fingers through it! Doing that mess then hugging and touching on people. It’s gross. And her stories about she and Ozzy getting physical with each other are not funny or endearing. They’re just pathetic.

    It probably goes without saying, but this “#NotmyAriel” shit is ridiculous. I assumed Disney would hire a Caucasian redhead for Ariel too, but if they want to cast her as black, what’s the issue? Like Sheryl said today, mermaids aren’t real anyway. Ariel is a character. Besides the Disney movie was much more sanitized than the original story which had a pretty bleak ending. I get Carrie Ann’s point about not wanting to force diversity for the sake of it, but I don’t think that’s the case here.

    Should be new and live from now until Sara's final show next month. Not looking forward to that one. :(

    Girl, don't remind me! I don't want to taste my BBQ twice! Lol. I'll miss Sara too. It sucks that the only original host returning for the tenth season is the one who never should've gotten the gig in the first place, but alas. Hope everybody had a great 4th!

    Well said! Ozzy and Sharon are such a volatile, codependent mess I’m surprised they’ve made it this far without one of them ending up in the graveyard. Just a mess. On a much lighter note, have a great 4th, everybody!

    I don’t usually care for tapes shows either, but I did enjoy these last two episodes. Especially glad to see Alison Sweeney as guest host today. Sheryl, I feel for you that you wish you’d found the right man to have children with, but you know good and damn well that you wouldn’t want or need an Ozzy to “stick by you”. All that drinking and drugging and bed-hopping? No ma’am.
