A celebrity ex-wife and author believes her idea for a mommy-centric talk show was stolen and turned into CBS Daytime's The Talk. Angela Wilder, ex-wife of Los Angeles Lakers player James Worthy, is suing CBS, Relativity and Sony, claiming they lifted her pitch for a talk show entitled The Mother's Hood to create The Talk.

The Talk’s au naturel season premiere—for which co-hosts Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Aisha Tyler, Sheryl Underwood and guests Melody Thomas Scott, Michelle Stafford, Katherine Kelly Lang and Jamie Lee Curits all went without makeup—rose 37 percent over last season's opener in the Nielsens, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The number is subject to some adjustments -- US Open finals delayed the West Coast broadcast until Tuesday -- but the final number is on track to show significant improvement from last year's opener that brought in a 1.9 rating and six share on Sept. 12, an improvement of 37 percent.

Soap stars Melody Thomas Scott, Michelle Stafford, Katherine Kelly Lang and film star Jamie Lee Curtis will also appear makeup free as guests of the season premiere.
