Remember last summer when Daytime Confidential's Jamey Giddens spilled some serious tea about shakeups at The Talk? Let me refresh your memory. Uncle Jamey heard there was some drama behind the scenes with the ladies and co-host Sharon Osbourne was about to bolt. Osbourne's former co-host Leah Remini has now revealed on Twitter (Viva Twitter!) the real reason she and Holly Robinson Peete got the boot. According to Remini, it was all due to Sharon! Remini tweeted: READ MORE
Deadline is reporting funny gal Aisha Tyler has been added to The Talk as a regular co-host. According to the site, Tyler, who was a guest host on the show previously, begins today on the CBS chatfest full-time.
As previously reported, ABC had a talker in development for Tyler, but passed on it. Tyler rounds out The Talk's panelists with Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and showrunner Sara Gilbert.
Looks like CBS is trying to pull out all the stops to revamp The Talk. Deadline is reporting funny gal Molly Shannon is heading to the CBS gabfest. According to the site, Shannon will be a guest co-host the entire month of September, along with the original hosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and newcomer Sheryl Underwood.

The co-hosts have clicked together, the topics have connected with the audience and the show has added a new dimension to our top-rated daytime line-up. We're excited about its current success and the potential to grow and evolve 'The Talk' even further.

Surprising no one with any pop-culture acumen, reviews for the debut of The Talk on CBS have been overwhelmingly negative. The series jumped off with a predictably dull premiere this week, featuring the insipid collaboration of Julie Chen, Leah Remini, Sara Gilbert, Holly Robinson Peete and Sharon Osbourne, and an irrelevant and uninteresting interview with Christie Brinkley. Seriously, who iwaswaiting for an interview with Christie Brinkley?!
