This afternoon, the most heartbreaking moment did not occur on your daytime soap operas, but on today’s episode of the hit CBS Daytime series, The Talk!

During a segment, co-host Aisha Tyler told the ladies of The Talk, something she had kept hidden from them for quite some time while coming into work each day.  As Aisha related the story of her struggles to conceive a child with her husband, tears flowed from Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood, Sharon Osbourne and Julie Chen.

Tyler revealed that after years of saying she didn’t want kids, she had a change of heart and after trying to get pregnant, her and her husband went to a doctor who recommended they try IVF in which Aisha recently underwent.  After going through a lot of procedures and spending a lot of money, Tyler related that she learned from her doctor that her odds of conceiving a child are very minimal and so she decided to stop trying.

Watch the segment with Aisha’s true life story after the jump, and let us know your thoughts!

What a truly courageous woman sharing such a touching moment with the ladies of the panel, audience and viewers. A lot of strength it took to do this. I admire Aisha for becoming so vulnerable and wish her and her husband the best in the future, whether they do choose adoption or not.

Isn’t this “The Soap Buzz” – Sorry not interested in the personal lives of B-List celebrities hosting the show that replaced the QUALITY drama ATWT. We all have tragedies and drama in our lives. I want daytime drama not Kardashian reality drama.

Don’t watch talk shows. Why are they being discussed in Soap Buzz? I boycott any talk show that replaced a soap.

This blog discusses all things daytime, INCLUDING talk shows, and Aisha Tyler is a talented, sweet woman. Instead of focusing on your own pity complaints, why don’t you have some compassion for another human being going through one of the worst things a woman can go through?

I am sorry that she can not have her own child but there many children waiting to be adopted into a loving home. If you think not being able to get pregnant is one of the worst things that can happen to a woman then you are living a very sheltered life. She is a very fortunate woman in that she has a good job and can afford to give an adopted child a good life.

Of course there are many children waiting to be adopted, but not being able to carry and birth your own child is very traumatic for women who have a strong desire to have a child. It makes you feel less than what you are, it makes you feel like a failure. It doesn’t matter if there are other options such as adoption or a surrogacy, it is a personal pain that shouldn’t be met with judgement from people like you.

Infertility is a very difficult struggle for many individuals and it only makes it more difficult when people are dismissed with comments about how worse things can happen and how they should just adopt (and other insensitive remarks). 1 in 8 couples (2002 National Survey of Family Growth) struggle with infertility. People can’t “just adopt” because it’s not that simple. I can’t imagine that people really just don’t care. My guess is it is a result of lack exposure and understanding. They just don’t know a lot about infertility or the adoption process. This is why it is so great that Aisha spoke out. I always think it is courageous when people speak about personal issues to make a positive difference in the world. I hope Aisha is able to bring about more awareness about infertility.

If women truly feel the way you say they do then I do feel sorry them. When I start to feel sad about something going on in my life I say to myself “Be grateful always.” I have to say I still don’t “get it” but I believe you. I just didn’t realize that today’s woman would actually feel like a failure. Lesson learned. I suppose people who have had harder lives would just look at this as just something else to overcome. Things are relative to people’s experiences in life.

Robert Newman Shares Why There Has Not Been a Return to Springfield & ‘Guiding Light’ On-Screen Reunion

Robert Newman, best known to daytime soap fans as Josh Lewis on Guiding Light, sat down earlier this week for a wide-ranging interview on his career with Lauren Van Hemert via her You Tube Channel.

The timing of the posting of the interview as in-line with the date GL was officially canceled back on April 1, 2009.  The series began its historic run on TV from radio back on June 30, 1952, and ultimately aired its final episode on September 18, 2009.

From 1980 to 2009, Robert was one of the mainstays and key leading men of Springfield, and of course, the Josh and Reva (Kim Zimmer) love story is one of the most popular ever in the annals of daytime drama.

Right off at the top of the interview; Hemert noted that what she was asked most by fans of Newman’s and GL’s, when and if there will ever be a Guiding Light on-screen reunion.

Newman responded to the question: “I get that a lot.  That question is unfortunately in the hands of Procter and Gamble more than anything else … and they made it very clear over the years that they’re just not going to release the characters and copyrights to the show.”

Robert also added, “In terms of what you are talking about where there might be some sort of production, where there’s an actual reunion, and we see where Josh and Reva are today and that kind of thing (on their probably 15th marriage) … unless Procter and Gamble is somehow willing to shake loose the rights to the show, I don’t see it happening.”

Watch the full interview with the talented Mr. Newman below.

Then let us know, since P&G has made it very clear for the last several years they are out of the soap business completely, do you think its time they just sell the rights so viewers can see some sort of reboot down the line, especially for a show as beloved as Guiding Light? Comment below.

As some know, John Callahan was a longtime resident of the Coachella Valley. From 2018 on he continued to be a part of the station with his weekly show all the way up until his death.

John’s soap resume was impressive, not only from his time as All My Children;s Edmund Grey, but also as General Hospital’s Leo Russell, Santa Barbara’s Craig Hunt, and Days of our Lives, Dr. Baker, plus his primetime roles including on Falcon Crest.

Following iHub Radio’s special broadcast, the tribute program will be available as an on-demand show via the iHubRadio.com home page.
