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… Read more »

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.

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
