On the  season four premiere of The Talk, the ladies of the panel have been each taking turns sharing a very personal secret that has never before been told publicly or to each other.

On yesterday’s episode, Julie Chen revealed she had surgery on her eyes years ago after a local news director in Dayton Ohio, where she was at the beginnings of her news career as a field reporter and had made known she would like to be a news anchor, told her she looked bored during interviews, and a talent agent advised that without opening her eyes, she would never make it to a big market. This caused controversy in her family particularly since Julie is very proud of her Chinese heritage.

Listen to the heartbreaking tale of Julie’s difficult decision to try to move forward in her chosen profession to attain her goals where she faced significant racism and remarks due to her race.

Watch Julie reveal her secret on her eye surgery after the jump, and then let us know how you feel about her story!

Please don’t write about these awful talk shows. We don’t care.

Excuse me, check the ratings. I care and plenty of people obviously DO care. The Talk has built a loyal audience that is growing steadily, little by little. I like Julie Chen, enjoy the show very much, and look forward to watching it each day. It’s a harmless, fun show that puts a smile on my face, and I appreciate this theme for the first week of their new season. If you don’t like/watch it, that’s fine, but don’t ruin it for the rest of us who do. You soap fans are NOT so far above everyone else. Yeah, stick… Read more »

Lisa– I don’t think soap fans think we are above talk shows. The sad truth is many of our beloved soaps were cancelled by networks and replaced by talk shows. If networks hadn’t done that, the black lash against talk shows by soaps fans would not exist. If talk shows get as many or more eyeballs watching them that sends a message to networks that they can do away with soaps altogether. So If you sense hostility toward talk shows by soap fans I think it is for that reason. They are threatening the existing four soaps. In the old… Read more »

Discrimination is unacceptable, but things worked out well for her. She’s married to the President of CBS and she has a highly paid job which requires her to do nothing to engage in mindless patter.

Her eyes do look better after. She looks more trustworthy after. It also looks like she had some nose work done.

Talk abt brutal honesty! Tired tv show “the view” could only dream of topping that revelation! It’s completely not surprising though for julie chen to be told she’s not “relatable” enough bec of her Asian american features and heitage and she must conform to white standards of physical appearance for her career to prosper. This is something being told implicitly and explicitly to racial minorities by “tolerant” and “progressive” hollywood. Asian american actors and actresses and public personalities who are part white get more opportunities bec their looks conform more to Anglo features. It’s the same thing for other racial… Read more »

Wow. Discrimination in the news media. I’m shocked. I’m really shocked. Shame on you Ohio. Shame, shame, shame.

Seriously, I’m not surprised. Work discrimination happens everywhere. All she needed to do is change her makeup and she would have been fine.

It’s sad she felt she had to do that because she was beautiful before. However, she needs a refund as she is still a beautiful Asian woman who unfortunately had WAY TOO much plastic surgery!

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
