Without Holly Robinson Peete & Leah Remini....Boos, threats & embarrassment at "The Talk"
An ugly situation has gotten even worse. As everyone knows, Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini were removed from CBS' "The Talk" in an unprofessional and mean fashion. "The Talk" debuted yesterday without the two fan favorites.......with not one word about the changes. I heard whispers that there were orders from above (Julie Chen) that the hosts were not to mention either Holly or Leah.
I needed confirmation and sadly got it from a trusted CBS source who tells me "Sharon Osbourne and Sara Gilbert were told not to mention Leah or Holly or else they would face the wrath of Julie." Even worse..... "She said the same to the crew and producers. Any contact with Leah or Holly and they will be fired." Ouch.......
How about the studio audience? How did they react when told that Leah & Holly weren't there? A hearty round of boos. Out of the studio, the reaction was just as bad as THR reported
Everyone that I've talked to feels bad for both Sara Gilbert and Sharon Osbourne. Two very well liked and respected women. My source tells me that Sara "feels embarrassed and powerless". What about Sharon? Poor Sharon tweeted yesterday:
Great first day back. Missed @hollyrpeete & @LeahRemini. http://twitter.com/#!/MrsSOsbourne/status/111237546700312577
Quickly followed up by
It's a very different dynamic but Sheryl was hilarious & I can’t believe I’m working w Molly Shannon, I’m a huge fan. http://yfrog.com/nuwkqlj
Yup, you can only hope Sharon that Ms. Chen didn't read your first tweet.........
8/26/11 CBS won't officially release Holly Robinson Peete, but orders her to clean out her dressing room for her replacement. BOO CBS!!
