Moms I think you’re gonna love this new show on CBS, “The Talk” – with a panel of hosts that are “all female” and “all mom” . Today I was able to chat with these girls over lunch in New York City at CBS studios – as they are gearing up for the launch of their TV show and hitting the road for a press junket.
I was beyond wowed by this group of women. Make that like a triple wow. Truly, I found them all inspiring. And what I think I loved most is that this show was created with Motherhood in mind. Here’s a cute clip of the brilliant Sara Gilbert -who created the concept of this show and pitched it to the network – explaining why she thought we needed “The Talk.” (Remember her from Rosanne? And yes this smart actress even went to Yale! She was born in 1975 like me so I think maybe that’s why I felt like I could relate to her…. obviously we’ve led very different lives!)
The hosts really are meant to be a group of friends talking about whatever we all talk about….. along with being very real and sharing their own lives too when it fits. And that even includes the kids! We saw some trailers that even included some sweet home footage of Sara Gilbert’s kiddies brushing their teeth and Leah Remini’s hubby’s dirty underwear that he can’t quite manage to put in the laundry basket. (Yes my husband also must believe a Boxer Fairy lives in our house and is the one who puts the underwear in the basket!)
And they appear to be a cast that will really balance each other out on the energy platform with the talkative and hysterical Leah and Marisa paired with the seemingly more serious Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, and Holly Robinson Peete.
And let’s not forget Sharon Osbourne. I honestly think she might just steal the show with her pearls of wisdom. Today, she just touched me with her sage advice as she shared quite a few life lessons with us today regarding motherhood, how to deal with bullies, and the power of television. (Honestly I’ve never seen her on TV before so had no idea what to expect – as you all know my $16 cable package does not include much… I seriously need to invest in a better package and some DVR so I can watch more TV!)
The Talk will air on October 18th, 2010 at 2 PM on CBS. Enjoy!
