All Episodes Talk: Now We're Talking

Recommended Posts

I've been watching the show and off over the years and I'll say this.  I could never stand Sharon so her exit was "byeeeeeeee."  Only to realize what hosts we have left and it's like "the other 3 don't bring much to the table."  I'm hoping Carrie Ann will be back soon but I feel eventually she will have to walk away from this and focus on DWTS.

 

Jerry O'Connell can be loud and off putting.  But I do think he can be hilarious, strike up conversations easily with guests and with his long and established career, brings energy.  I do think a retooling will be happening soon and he'll be part of that conversation.

I can't say I didn't see this coming.  I had a feeling Carrie Ann's absence was more than poor health.  Some women put so much of themselves into a relationship (& want it to work SO much), they're devastated when it fails.  I feel bad for Carrie Ann & I'm sorry for the pain she's enduring ,,, no matter what the cause.  (It also puts undue pressure on the guy in the relationship ... just sayin'!)

According to this article, TPTB are interested in hiring Jerry, but Sheryl and Elaine aren't for it: https://www.the-sun.com/entertainment/2872585/the-talk-replace-sharon-osbourne-jerry-oconnell/. Not sure if any of that is true, but there it is. Jerry's still not my fave and I'm not on board with hiring a permanent male host, but I'll admit that he makes the atmosphere less dry. Sheryl seems to vibe off of him too (which lightens her load a bit), but I'm still holding out for a female host who can bring personality, smarts and humor without any OTT antics. If said candidate can't be found or talked into joining and TPTB had to choose between Jerry and Jenna Dewan, I'd have to go with Jerry. At least he's not boring.

Personally, I'd rather "take the gas pipe" than let him know how deeply hurt I am.  If she's thinking that he'll come back to her because of how much she loved him, it would only be out of pity & wouldn't last long.  JMHO.

If someone would shoot Jerry with a mild tranquillizer dart he'd be a lot more tolerable overall. He's acted like an unmedicated person with ADHD for years. He makes me feel fidgety when seeing him act that way.

He seemed more calm today, but Friday's are always taped shows so maybe he'd tuckered himself out by then. 😉

I almost don't want to say it in case I jinx it, but Jerry was pretty good today. A lot more calm than usual. I miss hot Jesus, but David Begnaud is good. I thought it was cute when he low-key flirted with Milo Ventimiglia (those legs tho, chile! 😩) about his booty shorts pics. Never watched a single episode of This Is Us, but I could stare at those pics for ages. 😁

Didn't they just celebrate their one year wedding anniversary like a week ago? Slow ya roll, girl. Lol.

Elaine made me laugh when she said Lauryn Hill's chronic lateness might keep her from being a guest at her hypothetical dinner so she chose Sade instead. Love Sade to death, but you know it would take her decade to show up. 😁

I often find Elaine irritating, and did during this conversation as well. Being married barely a year, they are still basically newlyweds. Having date nights is hardly a big deal. One of the reasons I like Jerry as a co host is that he has a decently long marriage, as well as kids. And I like his irreverent humor regarding both. But his is also realistic. I also loved Amanda's answer - so level headed. 

The ebb and  flow of a marriage is the best thing about it IMO. I do not need to be "on" all the time, nor does my husband. I like that I can take him for granted at times, and vice versa. I know he always has my back and I have his. That to me is what marriage is - a partnership that sometimes grows and sometimes is stagnant. But all parts are precious.

That's so funny! I haven't been to a Lauryn Hill show, but I'm familiar with her reputation. She's talented and I LOVE live music, but I hate long waits. Sade is like this mystical goddess to me. She's so beautiful, talented, unique, and mysterious. I didn't know she took a long time to show up, but I guess if anyone is going to make me wait, it would be Sade. :)

The thing about Sade is she takes her time coming back with new music, but once she and the band are committed to touring, trust and believe, she will show up on time, put on an amazing show worth the $$$ and leave fans clamoring for more. 🥰 Lauryn Hill is super talented, but her ego is beyond out of control. There's no excuse being hours late, but to have an attitude that the handful of fans who've stuck around should feel blessed that you even showed up without so much as an apology is even worse.

I also think she may have had a mental breakdown and has never gotten treatment for it.   She was awesome during her fugee years, then she had an album that went platinum as a solo artist and she has never been the same..

No, you're not a lone wolf here. I don't want a permanent male co-host, either. Jerry seems like a really nice guy, but his frantic energy makes me nervous. It's exhausting watching him. Maybe it's my sensory issues kicking in whenever he's on. This has always been and supposed to be a show for women by women. That is, if CBS doesn't cut its losses altogether.

I'm a Jerry fan, but I hear ya. I love the idea of a show for women featuring all females. It's one reason I haven't stopped watching The View despite Meghan. 

There are some hosts where the consensus is mixed (Jerry, Jodie Sweetin, Rumor Willis), but there are some everyone here likes (Yvette Nicole Brown, Brigitte Nielsen). I wish the powers that be would lurk here and get someone we'd all be excited about. Ideally, there'd be a female who'd add more energy to the show.

My listing shows Donnie Wahlberg will be appearing as well to hopefully talk less about how he surprised Jenny on The Masked Singer (SIGH!) and more about how he liked working with Nick Cordero on Blue Bloods so Amanda will need tissues.

It's telling that he's been the only consistent male guest host this whole month. I'm curious to see if the ratings have improved since he joined.

I agree. This was always setup as a women's show for women. I guess for me, I'd only make the exception for a gay male co-host... *shrug*  Sort of like when Mario Cantone briefly tried to get on The View or when Lance Bass was on Meredith Vieira's show in the second season when she was trying out a panel of people.

When Jerry was talking about his disappointing auditions, I was reminded of when I was in my mid-twenties & left my lyin', cheatin' husband.  The next week I received a plaque in the mail from my Mom.  It had a picture of a sad-looking, big-eyed Cocker Spaniel puppy with his chin on the floor between his paws.  The caption read:  "Blessed are those who expect nothing, for they shall not be disappointed."  I've still got the plaque & Mom's "wisdom" ...

The latter half of today's show was extremely emotional and of course my heart goes out to Amanda over losing Nick and George Floyd's family losing him, but it hurts my heart even more to know little Elvis and George Floyd's kids will grow up without their fathers. They're all blessed to be raised by their other family members who will no doubt share all the stories and videos of their dads, but it's not the same as having them in their lives. 😞

I would be too. I'm a Jerry fan, but he has a pattern of getting TMI. Rebecca is also something of a sex symbol, I'm sure that's the last thing she wants the public hearing.

If Andy Garcia was there to promote it (I didn't watch yesterday) I guess he's hoping that the show can get literally uncancelled at ABC if people watch the remaining episodes.  https://deadline.com/2021/05/rebel-canceled-abc-katey-sagal-krista-vernoff-1234753645/

Exactly. Just because toilet humor connects with some immature people out there doesn't mean the rest of us want to hear it. 🤢

Health update from Carrie Ann: https://www.hellomagazine.com/celebrities/20210527114123/the-talk-carrie-ann-inaba-medical-update-sparks-reaction/. Hopefully she's closer to returning to the show. I wouldn't care if she had to do it from home, I miss having her on.

I actually make a distinction between general bathroom humor and what he said. If his wife had told that story on herself, it would be crude and TMI, but it is her story to tell or not to tell since it is an embarrassing thing that happened to her, not him. Since he is not the one who shit the bed, I think he needs to shut up about it. 

*my phone tried to change this to since he is not the one who shut the bed, I think he needs to shit up. I think my phone hates me.

I dislike bathroom "humour" as well, even if someone is referring to themselves in the story. That said, I find Jerry hilarious 80 percent of the time. I think he is much funnier than Sheryl, I rarely laugh when she is trying to be amusing. I would have no problem if Jerry were to become a permanent host, as I like hearing the male perspective. And honestly I find Jerry to be warmer and fuzzier than many women. 

I did laugh last week at Elaine's story of wearing her ex boyfriends' underwear, and her husband wondering whose undies were in the laundry. Also funny was the other male co host (who I can't remember the name of off hand) when he wondered how tiny Elaine's ex boyfriends were. Lol.
