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.

Following a catastrophic brain injury from crashing her car into a home last week and suffering severe burns, actress Anne Heche has been declared brain-dead at the age of 53.

In a statement from a rep for Heche’s friends and family, they expressed: “Today we lost a bright light, a kind and most joyful soul, a loving mother, and a loyal friend.  Anne will be deeply missed but she lives on through her beautiful sons, her iconic body of work, and her passionate advocacy. Her bravery for always standing in her truth, spreading her message of love and acceptance, will continue to have a lasting impact.”

Heche is legally dead according to California law, although her heart is still beating she has not been taken off life support in order to allow for organ donations to take place and to find the right recipients.

Anne’s eldest son, Homer 20, said in a statement to PEOPLE on his mom’s passing:  “My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom. After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom. Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me. I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time. Rest In Peace Mom, I love you.”

The talented actress is best-known to soap opera fans for her Daytime Emmy-winning dual roles as twins, Vicky and Marley Hudson on Another World.  She had two sons, Homer with her ex Coley Laffoon and Atlas, 13, with actor James Tupper.

Throughout her career Heche appeared on TV shows and films includingL Men in Trees, If These Walls Could TalkDonnie BrascoI Know What You Did Last SummerSix Days, Seven Nights, and Gus Van Zant’s 1998 remake of Psycho. Back in 2020, Anne became a celebrity contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

Heche’s stormy relationship with Ellen DeGeneres made headlines throughout her career, and today, DeGeneres shared: “This is a sad day. I’m sending Anne’s children, family and friends all of my love.”

Michael Fairman chatted with Anne back in 2020, in a memorable conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel touching upon her career start on Another World, being a champion for the LGBTQ community, her relationship with DeGeneres, the ups and down in her career, and her demons and childhood past.

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.

Anne Heche in “Extremely Critical Condition”; Still in Coma Following Fiery Car Crash

Although earlier reports over the weekend had soap opera alum and Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World) in stable condition following crashing her car into a home, on Monday an update on her condition looked more grim.

According to a statement provided to Deadline by Heche’s rep: “At this time Anne is in extreme critical condition. She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”

Since last Friday, Heche has been hospitalized following a harrowing incident where she crashed her car which caught fire into a private home in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles.

In addition, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Annie Hernandez told City News Service that investigators obtained a warrant for a blood draw from Heche.

Over the last few days, a new episode of Heche’s podcast “Better Together” with her co-host Heather Duffy was released, which showed the actress slurring her speech.

Erroneous reports said that the podcast which dropped on Friday, was also recorded that day, and that Heche had been drinking prior to her accident during the show.  However, it has come to light that Heche taped that episode last Tuesday, not the day of the crash.

Share your thoughts and prayers for Anne as we continue to monitor and update the situation on the film and TV star, via the comment section below.
