All Episodes Talk: Now We're Talking

Even the most dedicated to the idea that Meghan Markle just wants attention can't seriously believe she wants to do a daily talk show!  Come on folks!  

Um... This implication that I was saying something negative about Markle is not mine. I don't see anything wrong with someone like her on a talkshow. She's got to pay the bills just like everyone else. Being a host on a fluff daytime show seems like something within the realm of possibility for someone as well-known as she is who at the same time doesn't shy away from giving her opinions.

I think that had nothing to do with Valerie Bertinelli and everything to do with Paula Dean. 

It makes for a nice punchline, but this was roughly 5 years before she was outted as a big ol' racist.  I mean some people knew, but not John Q. Public.

Thank god for this place!  I just told my husband that Sharon Osbourne had exited The Talk and his one word response was "who?"

Interesting! I found this from the year before, and at that point, Sandra Bernhard and Tammy Lynn Michaels were being considered as cohosts for Deen and Gosselin. That obviously didn't pan out.

Sandra Bernhard and Paula Deen co-hosting the same show? What an odd pairing, but sounded like some train wreck potential there. 😉 Thank goodness Kate Gosselin didn't make the cut. I remember when she guest hosted on The View and she was incredibly boring. 

Back to the vacated seat on this show, TPTB... please continue to make the right decisions and hire Brigitte Neilsen for the show's return April 12. Thanks! 😁

I'll be interested to see how they handle the witch's meltin- I mean, exit when they come back next month. It won't happen, but a big part of me would get so much satisfaction if they did to her what was done to Holly and Leah. Just pretend like she was never there. Lord knows I wish I could wipe her existence on this show from my memory banks.

I can't believe it guys! We finally got our wish. I know it sounds mean to want someone to lose a job, but when said person is so rude and problematic and has tons of money anyway, I don't feel bad that we're all happy. Hopefully we get Brigitte or another kind woman who will spice up the show. 😀

Let's keep our fingers crossed there's hope to get rid of Meghan on The View now. lol

I would go to the gym near my break so something like The Talk was usually on. I avoided all American news channels (I am Canadian). So, I found the chat nice. 
 

Sharon was almost always the least interesting part of the show. So I will be fine with her exit. As I have not stepped inside a gym in ages due to you know what, all these hosts are new to me. I did not know Marie Osmond was no longer on the show.

After how Sharon treated Leah, Holly, Aisha and Marie...serves her right.

Maybe I'm misremembering but was it her that said Holly had no personality?  I mean...Holly was funny and self deprecating when she co hosted so I don't know what Sharon was going on about if true.

Your memory is correct. In a Howard Stern interview Sharon said Holly and Leah "didn't know themselves" and Holly tried to be "everything to everybody" or some such nonsense.

Hmmm..well Holly grew up in Hollywood, went to Sarah Lawrence, sang, acted, produced, married to a basketball player, had kids, and was an advocate for women/African Americans/autism.

Sharon obviously doesn't understand what relatability is.

It's too bad Sara is gone because the best and most meta way to handle Sharon's departure would be how revival Roseanne/The Conners ignored season 9 of Roseanne, dealing with the second Becky, and what to do about Roseanne's absence in The Conners.

Holly isn't the world's most interesting person, but a co-star, even a former one, should be discrete. If it's not someone who misbehaved, or you're not defending yourself from them, just move on to the next question.

Discretion is as foreign to Sharon as telling the truth, keeping a clean house and her dogs off of a talk show set. She relishes in talking shit about people and kicking them when they're down, former co-hosts or not. Now the shoes on the other foot. Finally.

Sadly, she might have a case. While her behavior has been horrible, there may be some question on if it violated her contract.  There's usually some kind of morals clause in the contract, and the battle I suppose would be over if what she's done violates it.  I doubt they can use her past behavior against her, because they can't credibly claim they didn't know about it.

Sharon suing? As if she doesn't have enough money. You know you fucked up, so just walk away with your shitty attitude and do something productive for a change. Getting off your high horse is a good start.

Doubtful that she has a case because they typically craft those entertainment contracts in such a way that they can boot someone for all sorts of non-fault reasons too. They've got to give themselves room to retool on the fly if something happens: someone dies, Q scores plummet, they add a new host who gels with everyone except for 1 person, they need to change formats or better target their audience, they get a cohost who the network would actually jump through hoops for (Amy Schumer, Kim Kardashian, Meghan Markle, Chelsea Handler, Katie Couric, Tiffany Trump) for a price they can't ignore, or there's some sort of big news/world event that would preempt the show for at least 6 months (OJ Simpson trial). In general, the US is an at-will employment country, which generally means they can fire people for almost anything except for things the law says are never firing offenses. Even if Sharon grumbles like she's gonna sue, they'll throw some settlement money at her and make her sign an NDA. It's what NBC and America's Got Talent did with Gabrielle Union and she actually had a legitimate cause of action.

Do not extend any discussions of potential new cohosts to include references to elected officials/politicians.  It is a violation of the site's no politics rule.  Thanks!

I just read that CBS is denying they are paying Osbourne $10 mil to leave the show but can't get the link to link!

A CBS spokesperson said of the report: “False, inaccurate or untrue. Take your pick.”

Wendy Williams weighed in on this fiasco on yesterday's show. She said she was discussing it with "her friend" Kris Jenner over the weekend, and told Jenner to put her name in for the replacement host. Of course, Jenner supposedly responded 'she's too busy' right now to tackle another project, but Williams tried to talk her into it - so I have a feeling Williams knows a bit more than what is going on and is hinting at something.

On the other hand, Williams also sounded very doubtful if this show will last or come back at all.

Whatever amount she gets send her on her merry way, bring on a new host (major hell no to Kris Jenner for me) and come back in April and see what happens. Sharon's nonsense will fade from view.

Whatever incarnation of this show comes back on April 12, I'm sure CBS will be looking at the all-important 'May Sweeps' in the ratings, which begins two weeks later. If this show continues to limp along at the bottom of the ratings from April 12 - May 31, I think CBS will finally put this show out of it's misery by the summer, and bring in something better for September.

I’m sure that any payout Sharon gets will contain an agreement that she cannot talk about the show or what happened.

That's kind of obvious that they'd cancel the show if the ratings continue to drop. Lol. Or the ratings could improve and they could be in a much better place by September. Some were so sure the show wasn't even coming back from the two week hiatus and now they have a set return date. Whatever happens between now and the months ahead, CBS finally put the viewers out of our misery by canning Sharon and that's one major step in the right direction.

I could be wrong, but I can't think of too many shows/media outlets who would be interested in hearing anything she has to say anyway. I certainly know I'm not interested in hearing anything else come out of that disgusting gob of hers.

She could write for the Daily Mail or wait until her pal Piers gets a new gig and then be a co-host with him.  Sadly I am betting that he will definitely get something sooner rather than later.  Ugh.

She has nothing else to lose at this point. I know one thing's for sure. When she's lying under the covers with Ozzy and their 25 dogs, she's kicking herself for screwing herself out of the easiest, most ass kissy gig she's ever had by posting that tweet of support to Piers and the temper tantrum she threw on the show the next day. Thank you, Sharon. Your loss is our gain. Sweet sleep, witch! 😘

And to be honest, she probably could have gotten away with the tweet supporting Piers Morgan if she would have just kept her cool on the show the next day and actually listened to what the others were telling her in pushing back on her and acknowledged she jumped to the defense of a friend without really thinking through what he was saying.

Exactly, but her entitled arrogance was her downfall. She was expecting the usual tongue bath from the others after her monologue and took offense to Sheryl and Elaine digging a bit deeper into it. That mouth of hers kept going and going until it talked her off of The Talk for good. I'm looking forward to the shows return and the hopefully lighter mood in Sharon's permanent absence.
