Sharon Osbourne Taking a Break From The Talk

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Daytime, Talk Shows, CBS, Announcements, News,

Sharon OsbourneSharon Osbourne is taking a break from The Talk to spend more time with her husband. The 58-year-old star insists she is not leaving the discussion program for good, but she will not be on the panel when the show returns after its summer break in September because she wants to be with her spouse, rocker Ozzy Osbourne when he comes off tour.

"I've kept it no secret that I really miss my husband. He'll have been on tour for 18 months by the time it's over. I've spent a lot of time away from him. He gets a break at the end of September and so I've asked for a little break so I can be with him. I don't want to give it up. It's a great, great show. We've all worked really hard over the last year. I'm not going to walk away from that. I just need some real good quality time to be with my hubby."

One reason Sharon wants to return is the close bond she has with co-hosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini: "I'm very close to the women on the show. I didn't think that I would be [because] none of us knew each other going into it. We just didn't know each other socially."

Sharon's close friend, however, America's Got Talent host Nick Cannon thinks The Talk will struggle without her. "She's marvelous. She's the caregiver to us all. She just calms us all down."

Summer Dates for Big Brother Announced

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, News,


If you’re secretly hoping Wipeout would up the drama and add wasteful food stunts, then may be the better option for you.

In just over a month, CBS - and a pregnant Julie Chen - will kick off the 11th installment (has there really been that many already?) of the program. As usual, the series will air thrice-weekly episodes. No word at this time what big twist the reality show will have up its sleeve this time around. Are half the contestants secretly transsexuals? Will bosses and fired employees find themselves competing against each other? Is one really a terminator?

Big Brother 11 premieres Thursday, July 9th at @ 8:00. The show will then air on Sundays @ 8:00 and Tuesdays @ 9:00.

Big Brother 10: Brian Evicted/Jessie is New HOH

Posted by Jacci Lewis Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Editorial, Gossip, News,

Brian out

He flew too close to the sun and got burned. Brian, the former Air Force crew chief from San Francisco, talked himself right out of the house. He wasn’t even nominated originally.

Jerry, the Head of Household, put Renny and Jessie up for nomination, but Jessie won the Power of Veto. This coincided with increasing suspicion of Brian’s attempts to control other house guests and tell them how to vote. At one point, Brian suggested he was “pulling all the strings” in the house. He’d originally formed an alliance with Dan and Ollie. But Ollie has formed a stronger alliance (like the physical kind) with April and April didn’t like Brian so Ollie turned on him.

Big Brother 10: Grandpa Got Game

BB10 Jerry

Maybe there is hope for presumed Republican presidential nominee John McCain yet? Right now the hottest guy on right now is a muscle-shirt wearin’, gravelly voice talkin’ ex-Marine who just happens to be a 75-year-old great-grandfather.

The new season of ’ perennial fish-bowl reality show is proving that old doesn’t mean obsolete. In the premiere episode of Big Brother 10 Jerry, the oldest person to every compete on the show, not only became Head of Household but also copped a feel of one of the hottest girls in this season’s cast. (Before his wife of 54 years has a heart attack that girl, April, sort of forced Jerry to do it.) Still, it was a good strategic move for the Magnolia,Texas retiree. In that instant you could see his fellow house guests quickly shift their concept of Jerry from Depends and defibrillators to babes and booze.

Adam wins Big Brother 9

began this season of by offending millions of developmentally disabled children and their parents. He ends the season hopefully making good on a promise to donate $100,000 to make their lives better.

Jasinski, an alleged public relations flak for a now defunct Florida-based autism group, won BB9 thanks to a six to one vote by a jury made up of seven of his former house mates. Despite some reservations as to who actually played the better game, he or Ryan… Matt, Natalie, Sharon, James, Chelsia and even scorned ex-partner Sheila voted to give 29-year-old Jasinski the $500,000 grand prize. Only Joshuah threw his support behind Ryan Quicksall, the 27-year-old college student from Ohio. Ryan will take home $50,000, sure to be spent quickly by his annoying girlfriend and ex-house mate Jen.

Big Brother 9: Batty Natalie Evicted, Ryan is New Head of Household

Posted by Jacci Lewis Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Editorial, News,

Natalie EvictedIt is time to bid a fond (or totally relieved) farewell to the bikini barista from Salem, Oregon. Natalie is the latest house guest to get the boot on .

Natalie ended up on the chopping block next to Sharon after Adam inexplicably won the Power of Veto challenge where house guests had to solve a complicated multi-TV, multi-remote challenge. The mushy-mouthed and dim-looking public relations flak solved the puzzle in a mere 3:20 seconds. It took box of rocks Natalie 12:09 seconds (though Sheila was the biggest dolt, it took her more than 15 minutes to get it right).

When the time came to use the POV, obviously Adam saved himself forcing Sheila to put someone else up for eviction. No big surprise here, she chose Natalie. In the end, Ryan voted to evict Natalie saying she is just too good at endurance competitions to safely keep her around. Adam voted to evict Sharon saying she hasn’t done anything good for him in the house. Sheila had to break the tie and, of course, evicted Natalie. The other big headline of the night: Ryan is the new Head of Household.

Big Brother 9: Surly Joshuah Evicted, Adam Wins Head of Household

Posted by Jacci Lewis Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Editorial, News,

Big Brother 9Not even a pathetically staged crying jag could save Joshuah from the chopping block on . House guests fed up with his scheming ways and, as I’ve written about before, his bottomless pit of anger against some of the women in the house sent the 25-year-old Texas advertising media buyer packing.

Joshuah was evicted by a vote of 3 to 1. Ryan, Sheila and Adam all agreed it was time for him to go. Fellow pariah “Crazy” James was the only house guest to throw Joshuah a bone but it wasn’t enough.

The only other big headline of the night: Adam is the new Head of Household.

Checking into the Big Brother House: Chelsia Gets the Boot

Posted by Jacci Lewis Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Editorial, Features, News,

BB9 Chelsia OutIt has been a couple of weeks since I’ve written about . While I’ve watched most of the episodes in between then and now, I have to say it was getting to be a bit like my on-again, off-again relationship with the soap opera One Life to Live. I’ve missed years at a time and still know exactly what the storyline is.

A quick recap of the past few weeks: James was voted out then quickly voted back in when the house guests were given the chance to either bring back a mystery house guest (Alex) who had already been evicted or bring back James. In an odd turn of logic, even some of the guests who gave James the boot voted him back in within a few minutes. (I think they feared the mystery guest was either super-annoying Amanda or super-annoying Jen.)

Once James got back in the house, he and Chelsia began a reign of terror that ended with Boston roofer Matt evicted and his former “soul mate” daft Oregon bikini barista Natalie vowing revenge. Later, under-the-radar king Adam won Head of Household. He nominated Chelsia and James for eviction but James later won the Power of Veto and saved himself. Adam then put Sharon up as a pawn next to Chelsia bringing us to tonight’s eviction: Chelsia is out.
