‘The Talk’ Extends Hiatus Amid Sharon Osbourne Controversy

Photo: CBS

The CBS television network issues a statement on Tuesday afternoon on the status of new episodes returning for The Talk.   

The statement read: “CBS is committed to a diverse, inclusive and respectful workplace across all of our productions. We’re also very mindful of the important concerns expressed and discussions taking place regarding events on The Talk. This includes a process where all voices are heard, claims are investigated and appropriate action is taken where necessary. The show will extend its production hiatus until next Tuesday as we continue to review these issues.”

With that move that means that The Talk will remain dark all of this week as yesterday and today were previously canceled and is now Wednesday’s taping.  The remainder of the week, Thursday and Friday were always going to be on hiatus for CBS’ telecast of the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament coverage of March Madness.

Earlier in the week, The Talk was launching its own internal investigation over what went down last Wednesday when hosts Sheryl Underwood and Sharon Osbourne got into it over comments made by Piers Morgan over Meghan Markle and how Osbourne seemingly showed support of Morgan opening up the question of racism.

Things further got embroiled when former The Talk co-host Holly Robinson Peete stepped into the fray and said that Osbourne had her fired and said she was “Too Ghetto” for the afternoon gabfest.  Later, Osbourne shared on her Twitter account an email from Peete when she was exiting the show, which had some pointed words about ex-co-host Julie Chen Moonves.

So, what do you think the resolution now is for The Talk? Will they keep Sharon Osbourne as part of the cast? Comment below.

SEE what happens when you “cancel culture” soaps? LOL. Not. Diversity and inclusivity is necessary but CBS is shooting itself in the foot over not quietly trying to rectify years of ignoring this problem. This entire issue of race is becoming an all out war. And instead of helping it’s just making people, black and white, tired, annoyed and nonplussed. Don’t change the record, just turn down the volume and stop scratching it.

Ozzy should have bit Sharon’s head off decades ago.

To me it just looks like CBS is trying to get viewers interested in watching the lowest rated show on network daytime tv. Not working.

The Talk has always had a problem with these overly talkative women. At least when Sarah Gilbert was there, she kept the others in check, Julie Chen could also have a calming effect, but after she left, all hell broke loose, kind of a free for all. Sharon has always had a big mouth and had no problem saying how she felt to anyone who would listen. Leah Remini was very vocal also and she as well as Holly Peete both have said that Sharon got them fired. Why is it just coming out now? Also there was rumours of… Read more »

In my opinion, Marie Osmond was just boring.

She was only boring because she was too nice, religious, etc. She was not the right type of person for this show.

Kay, the opposite of “Worry” is “Don’t Care!” I care about this world, my country and the right to voice an opinion. No, let TALK keep airing, I wont watch it, others will, thats fine. BUT, your “Liberal Love” you want to spread all around the world is crushing everything! The books we read, the movies we watch and the history that was written! Kay, history is not always right but we can learn from it and not be so damn critical. “Parents” think they are protecting their kids from Dr. Seuss or Peter Pan, no, they are sheltering their… Read more »

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
