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

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

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.

On March 10th, Sheryl Underwood and Sharon Osbourne got into a heated discussion about racism because the manager defended her friend Piers Morgan. It was so intense that CBS and The Talk parted ways with Osbourne after 11 years.

After not shooting any new episodes for a month, they will finally be back in the studio on Monday. The daytime talk show sent out a press release and revealed they will be talking about the topic that started it all.

“THE TALK returns with a discussion about race and healing; expert on diversity, equity, inclusion and justice Dr. Donald E. Grant will offer advice on how to have these difficult conversations; nationally acclaimed trauma therapist and life coach Dr. Anita Phillips will share her expertise on how to heal after a painful event or conversation,” the release said.

I am sure I am not the only person who will be tuning into the show for the first time on Monday to see what they say. They better make it worth it.


Sharon Osbourne talked herself out of The Talk

Sharon Osbourne had a rough March, and it is ending with her leaving The Talk. A show she has called home for the last 11 years.

Osbourne opted to defend her friend Piers Morgan on Twitter when no one would. Then the next day, she was asked to do it again on the daytime talk show. She played the victim and put down her co-hosts. Needless to say, it didn’t go over well with Sheryl Underwood and Elaine Welteroth.

CBS decided to investigate the debate after Welteroth reportedly complain to HR about the incident. She is allegedly not the only one, so did other people who work and worked on the show. So after two weeks, CBS concluded their investigation.

“Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave ‘The Talk. “The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home. As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace. We also did not find any evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blindsided any of the hosts.

“At the same time, we acknowledge the Network and Studio teams, as well as the showrunners, are accountable for what happened during that broadcast as it was clear the co-hosts were not properly prepared by the staff for a complex and sensitive discussion involving race,” the statement went on. “During this week’s hiatus, we are coordinating workshops, listening sessions and training about equity, inclusion and cultural awareness for the hosts, producers and crew. Going forward, we are identifying plans to enhance the producing staff and producing procedures to better serve the hosts, the production and, ultimately, our viewers.”

Will the viewers tune out? Only time will tell. But I doubt it. Even though people say they will, they never do.
