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.”
