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.

Felicity Huffman Reports To Prison To Serve Sentence For College Admissions Scandal

Former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, reported to a federal prison to start to serve her 14-day sentence for her participation in the college admissions scandal that saw affluent parents use illegal means including bribery to get their children into elite educational institutions.

On Tuesday, Huffman surrendered herself to authorities at the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California which is said to be 35 miles east of San Francisco.  Felicity actually entered the prison facility earlier than her court-ordered date of October 25th.

Coincidentally, the prison that Huffman is serving her sentence also housed very well-known inmates including: Patty Hearst, Heidi Fleiss, and Sara Jane Moore, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.  Forbes Magazine named the facility one of America’s top 10 “cushiest” prisons back in 2009.

Unlike former Edge of Night actress, Lori Loughlin, who was also caught up in the scandal and has plead not-guilty to charges levied against her and her husband, Huffman did pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to arrange for her daughter’s SAT score to be falsified.  In addition, Huffman was fined $30,000, and must perform 250 hours of community service and spend a year on probation.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling of the District of Massachusetts, who is the the supervising prosecutor, said Loughlin should expect a tougher sentence than Huffman if she is convicted during an interview on a Boston TV station expressing: “I don’t think I’d be giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”

Huffman told the judge during her sentencing, “I was frightened. I was stupid, and I was so wrong.”

So, what do you think of the 14-day sentence and that Felicity is already beginning her jail time? Comment below.
