Molly Shannon to guest host “The Talk”

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: Saturday Night Live alumna Molly Shannon is on deck to guest host “The Talk” during the month of September. Shannon will appear alongside Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, Julie Chen, and creator Sara Gilbert. There is speculation that Shannon’s September gig is meant to be an extended interview for a permanent post. Shannon has only recently returned to television (via appearances on “Glee” and “Neighbors from Hell” in 2010). Shannon left the cast of Saturday Night Live in 2001.

Shannon’s appearance will be the most recent in a long line of hiccups for “The Talk,” which has seen high turnover since the show’s premiere. The departure of both Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini was confirmed this week; and, original cast member Marissa Jaret Winokur left the show during its first season.

Of recent note is creator Sara Gilbert’s split from her partner of 10 years, writer/producer, Allison Adler of shows such as “No Ordinary Family” and “Chuck”. Per an earlier Hollywood News report, the breakup was described as “amicable.”

    The Talk will be canceled before the end of the second season. Julie Chen, the woman who never had a job in her career she didn’t sleep with a man to get, and Sarah Gilbert, the socially inept, spineless woman already burnt the bridge they had with viewers from last season. What infuriates me is phony, Julie Chen acted like Leah and Holly were part of the family. They did things together all the time. Then, she backstabs both of them. Good luck, Molly. Julie Chen will definitely back stab you too. And Sarah Gilbert will leave you for dead just like she did Leah and Holly.

    Poor Molly is boarding a sinking ship. The viewers are hopping man Julie Chen, the bosses wife, threw faves Leah and Holly under a bus. Sara Gilbert turned out to be nothing but a spineless, doormat for Julie Chen. Didn’t stick up for her friends, Leah and Holly.

    Good Luck, Molly Shannon. The two witches, Julie and Sara will never be your “friend.” They pretended all last seaon to be BFF’s with Holly and Leah and look what happened to Holly and Leah.
