Dr. Oz says he won’t be cancelled as his show is cancelled
December 13th, 2021 under Talk Shows. [ Comments: none ]

Last month, Dr. Oz announced that he was running for US Senate, and today Sony Pictures Television announced that his show will be ending on January 14th. This news was not unexpected because there are laws preventing candidates from hosting TV shows and not giving equal time to the other candidates.

Even though he will not be doing the show, another Oz will be filling in for him starting on the 17th. His daughter Daphne will be co-hosting the cooking show The Good Dish with Top Chef judge Gail Simmons and Next Food Star winner Jamika Pessoa.

“Audiences have been loving what Daphne, Gail, and Jamika have been serving up during their weekly segments on The Dr. Oz Show for years. We have long believed The Good Dish would make an excellent stand-alone series and are delighted to be able to deliver this fresh take on the cooking genre to our station partners and their viewers across the country,” Zack Hernandez, the VP and General Sales Manager of Sony Pictures Television, said to the news outlet.

When it comes to Dr. Oz, I say good riddance. While some of his information was good, he also reportedly spread misinformation about medicine and medical treatments. He also was OK with sending kids back to school during a pandemic because he said it would only kill 2-3% of them in an interview.


Carrie Ann Inaba is all talked out of The Talk
August 20th, 2021 under Dancing with the Stars, Talk Shows. [ Comments: none ]

Back in April, Carrie Ann Inaba announced that she was taking a hiatus from The Talk to deal with her autoimmune health issues. Today, she gave an update on her status with the CBS talk show. She says that they mutually agreed to part ways.

I think we all knew this was coming. At least, she still has Dancing with the Stars.

She is the second host to leave this season. The first one, of course, being Sharon Osbourne.

With these departures, the remaining hosts are Sheryl Underwood, Amanda Kloots, Elaine Welteroth and new hire Jerry O’Connell.

There was a report recently that they knew that she wasn’t coming back and they were looking for a man to replace her. Who do you think would be a good choice?


John Corbett reveals that he secretly married his 10
August 4th, 2021 under Jerry O'Connell/Rebecca Romijn, Talk Shows, Weddings. [ Comments: none ]

John Corbett was on The Talk today, and he had a big secret to share with his buddy Jerry O’Connell and the other hosts. His sex in the city days with other women are over.

“Jerry, I can’t believe that I forgot to tell you that around Christmas time we got married. Bo [Derek] and I got married,” he said. “You know, we’re pretty private people. We didn’t make an announcement. All our friends and family knew but, this is the first time either one of us has said anything publicly about it because really we haven’t had an opportunity. So, you’re my buddy, and now I guess I’m telling all of America or the world. After 20 years, we decided to get married. We didn’t want 2020 to be that thing that everybody looks back at and hated…let’s get one nice this out of it.”

That is such a beautiful reason to get married. May their marriage only be filled with hope and good times for the rest of their long lives. You can already tell that the first seven months are full of happiness because he was beaming with joy as he shared the news.


Carrie Ann Inaba is taking a leave of absence from The Talk
April 26th, 2021 under Dancing with the Stars, Talk Shows. [ Comments: none ]

The Talk is not having a good 11th season. First, Eve announced that she was staying in London and not returning to the show. Then Sharon Osbourne “left” the show. Today, Carrie Ann Inaba announced that she is taking a break from the daytime talk show.

“I have decided to take a leave of absence from The Talk to focus on my health and well being. We all know health is the most precious gift we have. And I need to take care of mine,” she wrote. “I appreciate the love and support from all of you and from my family at The Talk. I hope to be back soon! Ready for action! 🙌❤🙏I’m sending you all my love. And I’ll update you on my progress…talk soon ❤😘”

The Dancing with the Stars judge suffers from autoimmune diseases and battled COVID-19. In recent weeks, she had been suffering from sharp pains. I hope she is better soon.

Between her and Osbourne’s absence, that means the only hosts that are left on the show are Sheryl Underwood, Amanda Kloots and Elaine Welteroth. The latter two have only been on the program for a few months. The show better hope Inaba is back soon or that ratings will be in the crapper.


Sheryl Underwood addresses Sharon Osbourne’s departure on The Talk
April 12th, 2021 under CBS, Talk Shows, The Osbournes. [ Comments: none ]

Today, The Talk does its first live episode in over a month. They went on hiatus because the hosts got into a heated discussion over race issues. The discussion was so heated that Sharon Osbourne left the show.

During their first episode back on CBS this afternoon, they will address the situation. “It’s time for an episode of ‘The Talk’ that will be unlike any other we’ve had before.” Underwood continued with, “As you may know, during our break, Sharon decided to leave ‘The Talk.’ We need to process the events of that day and what happened since, so we can get to the healing. Over the next hour, we will honestly discuss what occurred and explore some of our feelings. And we’ll also show you how anyone can become more comfortable discussing important issues and having difficult conversations. By the end of the hour, we want everyone to feel empowered and ready to move forward.”

Hopefully, they will get people talking and in a good way. We need to listen as well as talk. We seem to forget that. We think we are the only ones who know what we are talking about, and that is not always the case. In my case, it is. I am always right.

UPDATE: The Talk’s Elaine Welteroth also commented about what happened on March 10. She did not hold back.

“I think when you go back and watch what happened in that episode, you will see two Black women walking the same tightrope that Black women are walking every single day in the workplace,” Welteroth said. “As Sheryl said, we knew we had to stay composed in that situation, even in the face of someone who was A, not listening, and B, who went off the rails into disrespect when we were maintaining our respect within the context of this very complex, charged, emotional conversation.”

Welteroth went on to say this is the first time that she was able to address the situation publicly because of the investigation that was going on due to the heated discussion. She calmly and eloquently expressed herself and was able to get her point across.
