OH HELLS NO: Sheryl Underwood & Kris Jenner IN - Leah Remini & Holly Robinson OUT At CBS' "The Talk"


Comedienne Sheryl Underwood just landed her most high profile gig yet as she's been selected to co-host "The Talk" when it returns to tv on Sept 6. Get the deets on the new gig inside and find out what reality show MOMager......

 

There are big changes in store for the CBS chat fest "The Talk" which recently fired industry vets Leah Remini and Holly Robinson (though the politically correct thing to say is their contracts were not renewed). 

The show is making room for reality tv mom Kris Jenner and comedienne and Steve Harvey radio show regular who also has "The Sheryl Underwood Show" on Sirius, Sheryl Underwood.  Not feelin' this ish.  Now publicity hungry Kris has another hour long platform to simply (and only) push her and her daughter's products and shows.  Let's keep it real--that's all Kris is looking for.

Kris is being brought on to fill in for Sharon Osbourne who is taking time of to be with her husband Ozzy (and possibly also being looked at to fill Leah's role) for 2 weeks, while Sheryl is coming on as a "fill-in" with the option to become a permanent co-host.    

While the search is still on for permanent hosts, Sheryl and Kris will join Julie Chen and Sara Gilbert on Sept. 6 for the debut of season 2.

SMH.....not happy about this at all!  Holly brought a certain level of style and class a YBF Hollywood chick should to the panel.  But, once again, the powers that be seem threatened by a beautiful black woman who actually cares about her appearance, is not there simply to entertain the crowd and have them laugh with/at her, and has decades of experience and talent in this game.  I guess we should say hooray simply because a black woman is on tv even if I was never a fan of her talents.  But I can't hold my tongue completely since I'm feeling some kind of way about this.

Another interesting point is that "The Talk," unlike "The View," makes their main focus (and differentiating quality) on families--with the co-hosts themselves making their marriage and kids a focal point of the show.  Anyone else find it interesting the ONE person on the panel that will be unmarried with no kids is the black republican female Sheryl who praises Bush and downs President Obama quite often?  Holly is almost the exact opposite--married for almost 2 decades and has 5 kids and praises President Obama?  Y'all know I'm a big proponent of not only black women BEING on tv, but how black women are portrayed on national tv.  And the message it sends to the world.  And I, for one, am getting tired of the transparent motives. Just sayin'....

*sidenote* I do appreciate that Sheryl is a military vet and the President of a NPHC organization and also involved in politics. I have a degree in Political Science so I can appreciate the debate from both sides of the aisle and people's views from both.  What I DON'T appreciate is someone taking a certain view simply for attention and using it as a part of their comedic image.  Especially when others do not take their opinions seriously because the person can barely articulate their own views without using comedy.  I do not agree with THAT being the voice of black women on daytime tv.   I'm still feeling like there's an ulterior motive at play....

I'm disappointed in the decision you made to hire this lady. Every sentence that comes out of her mouth is full of grammar errors. I want to hear an intelligent perspective, which is what everyone else on the show offers except Sheryl Underwood. An uneducated person has no place at a roundtable discussion. I have nice things to say about everyone else but nothing but contempt for this high school drop-out who ironically takes more than her fair share of camera time to express herself in incomplete sentences. Your show now only makes me cringe when I hear her speaking her mangled words. It is the sound of ignorance. I can't believe this is the only person you could find to replace Leah Remini. In my opinion this is a huge step backwards. The show should try to hire hosts that equal Julie Chen, who is the best example you have of an intellectual who is informed and competent.

I watched Sheryl sit there

I watched Sheryl sit there with a very disinterested "screw face" like she really was not into what she was doing!! I would have NEVER GUESSED she is a commedian. Not pleasant to look at-boring. Get RID of CHRIS JENNER- enough of the Kardashians already- nothing worth hearing from her. Holly is missed for her intellect and experience. Leah was funny and enjoyable to watch and also very intelligent- PLEASE, PLEASE NO MORE "KARDASHIANS"!!!!!!! I WILL NOT BE WATCHING ANY MORE!

I enjoyed The Talk very much

I enjoyed The Talk very much and was a little upset and surprised that they did not renew the contracts of Leah and Holly and am not crazy about whom they have been replaced them with. The one thing I didn't like with the original group of ladies is that Leah had a tendency to undermine and belittle nearly everything Sara Gilbert said and it was evident she did not take her seriously, plus she thought it was funny.

I agree with the belittling Leah did on such a regular basis, referring to Sarah as "THIS ONE". Definitely not funny. But I do miss Holly big time.

Sheryl is one funny lady. why

Sheryl is one funny lady. why must we dissect every little comment someone makes. you don't have to agree with it; but do we have to be so nasty? someone wrote that Leah has the quailies you look for in a true friend. well one of the reasons i love her is because she reminds me of my best friend who died 2/1/11 at the age of 48. she would always say to me "grow a spine". and i can see leah giving that same advice to someone. my friend, like Leah, spoke her mind, and had the biggest heart. sorry Sara, but i have to agree with the others; you are boring but you had a great idea in this show. Sharron, before the talk, i could take you or leave you; but because of the show i have come to admire and respect you. Julie; i don't like what i'm hearing. i was watching the show when i heard you say that your husband could fire all their asses. i thought you were just joking, but now i wonder. Holly i like, having worked with autistic children for 8 yrs. my prayers go out to her and her family. i will not be watching the show anymore. there just isn't anything for me there. i think the ratings will give cbs a clue to what they've done to the future of the show.

I will NOT be watching this

I will NOT be watching this show AGAIN!!! How do you start up a NEW show and get people excited about watching it and all of a sudden CHANGE UP THE CAST??!! Dumb move CBS!! I actually had began to start excepting this new show after they took off the rest of my soap operas!! I actually watched it because I'm a HUGE LEAH fan and HOLLY fan. Julie and Sharon had to grow on me but I still don't like Sara!! Leah and Holly made the show because I was ALWAYS laughing. Now, I'm looking at the tv like???? I just don't get it!! If it ain't broke , DON"T fix it!! HELLO??!!

I will no longer be watching

I will no longer be watching The Talk. I was upset when As The World Turns was taken off the air but gradually began to enjoy The Talk. The show is on in my time zone at 1pm which is my usual time for lunch and so I would turn on the TV. Not anymore however. I do think Kris Jenner is a great choice to replace Sharon Osbourne when Sharon is away but Sheryl Underwood and Molly Shannon just don't appeal to me at all. Oh well more time to read..........

I wish Sheryl Underwood the best on her new role on The Talk. There are those who want to call people hateful things. I would ask you to look in the mirror. You probably ain't pretty. Holly did her thing.and now it's over. Sheryl will be fine rather she's on the Talk or not. You haters will still be faceless on the internet lonely and scared. So you take out your hate on others who will probably never see your hateful words. God Bless you anyway!

If you don't watch "The Talk"

If you don't watch "The Talk" the rating will go down and that will let Julie and "Mr. CBS" know that people were not happy with their decision to not renew Holly and Leah's contract. I believe Julie thought that they were out shining her. Of course since she is married to "Mr. CBS" I am sure Julie made it known that they were stealing the show. As for Sheryl Underwood, I don't care for her, but I hope she don't allow them to make her look like an uneducated/getto black woman. Let's not talk about Kris Jenner. Ughh!!! She just want to be seen and promote her family.

So far I'm not lovin Underwood. Holly and Leah were favorites of mine. Maybe Chen's hubby isn't an Obama fan. Therefore' Holly had to go. I am probably not going to be a viewer any longer. Remember this: "If it ain't broke...don't fix it." Oops too late. You already tried to.

The disappointment is with

The disappointment is with Sheryl Underwood. She perpetuates horrible stereotypes of the black community. In fact her comments 9/12/2011 regarding Serena Williams' outburst at the US Open was upsetting as she related it to the way a black person versus a white person reacts when in line at the grocery store and their credit card is not accepted. She says that whites will just react quietly and calmly while blacks yell loudly and proclaim racism. I don't believe this is true since I know plenty of black Americans who would react without proclaiming racism. Instead she is using national television to put forth a stereotype that has far-reaching and negative effects. I know Holly Robinson would not have put such a blatant comment out there so irresponsibly. It is too bad Holly Robinson is no longer on the program. Another area in which media masterminds find a way to set the black community backward.

why all the negative comments

why all the negative comments about being a black republican? not all blacks are democrates, I should know because most of my family are republicans and we didn't vote for Obama and his crappy health care and careless spending and jacking up taxes until were so broke we cannot afford to pay for gas. I don't know where all this blame it on Bush crap got started, oh yeah I do from ignorant fools that bought the Obama nonsense! If you want to really educate yourselves, start looking on the internet that black were republicans, but were led down the path of destructions from our own community. Also it's the house of representatives that controll congress and they are the ones that make most of the rules in the whitehouse, and by the way most of the house of represenatives in congress are democrates, same as when President Bush was in the whitehouse so who do you think really screwed-up the economy? start educating yourselves and Learn people. stop drinking the colaid!!!

Let's not be ignorant to the fact that Sheryl Underwood has TWO Master's Degrees. If you have ever heard her speak in a setting outside of a comedy show, she is quite intelligent. Don't think that just because she makes he living telling jokes she is incapable of participating in an intelligent converstion. Everything isn't always what it seems. She also is a staunch supporter of Obama. Could you just be hating on Sheryl because she is not as attractive and fashionable as Holly Robinson Peete?

Yes Sheryl Underwood is a Republican, but she doesn't dog Obama! Have you ever been to her comedy shows? All though her comedy is straight up rauchy, she makes it known that she supports Obama! Atleast at the show she did in Arlington,TX! She went on a 15 min rant about Obama, why she supports him, and even allow those who don't support him voice their opinion!

Holly lost out because she was too safe. Now they want the opposite of her which is loud and obnoxious. That is what people want these days is a fight. Just look at reality television...there is always some drama with fighting...one some level the view is responding the same way reality television has responded. Don't like it don't watch and tell your friends not to watch and don't let your kids watch.

I'm reading these comments

I'm reading these comments and also the post and I can't believe what I'm reading! I thought as black women, we should support and uplift each other not condemn and judge. I guess there seems to be a consensus on this site that if you are a black woman in Hollywood in order for you to be respected by your peers (black women) than you have to be attractive and boring. I'm sorry every black woman isn't the same. Holly Robinson-Peete (as lovely as she is) does not and have never represented me. As far as I know, Sheryl Underwood is well educated. Just because she is a comedienne doesn't mean that she's a buffoon. You guys are praising Holly Robinson-Peete as though she's a rocket scientist or something, she's an actress (p.s. not much different from being a comedienne). The fact that Sheryl Underwood is a Republican shouldn't make you like her less. She rarely express any negative political views toward our President as a matter of fact she actually supports him. BTW, just because you're black, doesn't mean you have to like/nor praise President Obama either. I don't care if she is what you guys are saying "fat and unattractive" (which is mean and cruel), as long as she bring something interesting to the show. That show is boring and it may need a comedienne to come in and spice it up. Joy Behar from The View is also a comedienne, and know one seems to comment on that. A lot of talk shows prefer someone on the show who's quick and witty, so that the show won't be dull. I think people should stop passing judgement on Sheryl Underwood because of her appearance. It's extremely shallow and disrespectful. We also need to stop putting pressure on a person to represent a race, it's unfair and ridiculous. It's 2011 people lets knock it off.

I am 10% with you Tasha!!

I am 10% with you Tasha!! Sheryl was chosen because she is a black republican.... she represents 1% of blacks in this country.... keep in mind the new president of CBS news is a former FOX NEWS EXEC ( i think this show may fall under the news division) so I don't think this is by accident... this woman has NO CLASS... I can't believe they would allow someone like this to rep the only minority voice on the show.... WHat about AIsha Tyler or Gabrielle Union or Garcel ... there are soooooooo many beautiful and intelligent black women in Hollywood.... I am shocked they would chose someone like this JUST BECAUSE SHE IS ANTI OBAMA... I might have to go over to this show;s twitter page to let them know what a disgrace this is.

Star Jones wore a wig just about everyday on The View. In fact, she has/had a line of wigs. Also, I believe personality conflicts along with all of the hoopla over her wedding caused Star to lose her spot on The View.

Let's give Sheryl a chance. She is an educated woman with a point of view and actually has something to say when she gets serious. Let her get in a groove (as there is a learning curve) and see if we like how she represents herself and us. Give CBS the credit for not deleting a black woman's presence entirely from this show. However, if the network execs are looking for buffoonery, I hope and pray Sheryl disappoints them.

Yep. I agree with the writers

Yep. I agree with the writers POV. We've seen this before with Star Jones on "The View". A learned, intelligent, accomplished woman gets replaced by two comedians who CONSTANTLY tow the line. I really do think they don't want intelligent black women displayed prominently on TV or in movies. Hence, that movies like "The Help" are a huge success. But I guarantee the Winnie Mandela movie won't be.

Clearly the writer of this

Clearly the writer of this blog/news hasn't seen Sheryl in action. She is a bright woman who brings the left to every conversation which I find interesting for TV, particularly. Sheryl will walk out on stage with her pocketbook and loud charm which will evoke a unique thought tone which many will find different from a woman of color. It's time for Robinson-Peete to go, Holly is a nice personality, but she is a better actress. If the show wants ratings and true versed unapologetic/un-politically scared dialogue, they have picked the right person #teamsherylunderwood #sherylunderwood #championdaboss #illestchamp
