What is the latest story on Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's rumored reconciliation? Is a "probation period" a reasonable way to work things out while out promoting Breaking Dawn Part 2? We broke down the reports with the ladies of The Talk yesterday. Check out our segment and leave your thoughts in the comments.
The show that likes to tell it like it is will soon be showing it like it is. For the Sept. 10 season premiere of The Talk, hosts Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood, and Aisha Tyler will be appearing completely sans makeup. Guest Jamie Lee Curtis will also be giving her makeup artist the day off. "I had a lot of trepidation when we decided to do this," Chen told People.
Not only is the cast ditching their lipsticks and mascaras, they'll also be on air without false eyelashes or fake hair. "What makes our show work is that the women who sit at the table are comfortable enough in their own skin that we'll all take the risk," Chen said. But don't expect the bare-faced look to stick around long. After the makeup-free premiere, the hosts will be back in the makeup chair once more.
Between the panels on dramas and comedys at the CBS TCA, we got a break to chat with the ladies of The Talk — better known as CBS's version of "The View," a new talk show that was just announced last week. The show will feature six famous faces — Julie Chen, Holly Robinson Peete, Sharon Osbourne, Leah Remini, Marissa Jaret Winokur, and Sara Gilbert (who is also acting as executive producer).
So how will the show differ from The View? Mum's the word — literally. The heart and soul of The Talk is motherhood, acting as a virtual mommy group of sorts that women at home can watch and relate to. In the sneak peek footage it also looks like the ladies will be doing some field work (which includes actual recordings of happenings from inside their own homes). As expected, the melting pot of personalities came alive in the panel, with the ladies dishing on their personal relationships, professional lives, and pet peeves.
- As I mentioned before, Sara Gilbert is an executive producer on the show, and she actually pitched it to CBS herself. She said that she was inspired by her own experience as an overwhelmed new mom. Marissa Jaret Winokur also echoed this sentiment, saying that she would cry in her bathroom every night during the first year after her son was born, and just wished she had someone to talk to about the darker, more difficult sides to motherhood.
- Like The View, the show will also tackle hot topics and current events, but from a "mother's perspective." In addition to talking about their kids, Julie Chen added, "We're here to talk about what everyone else is talking about out there in the world."
- As for the chosen hosts, Holly Robinson Peete said she's a natural fit since she talks about mom stuff all day anyway, and Leah Remini proclaimed herself a "yenta" and just loves talking in general. Sara Gilbert is looking at the show as a good opportunity to talk about motherhood and her sexuality head-on for the first time.

When you're dating someone, each "first" is a real milestone. And once you get passed your first date, first kiss, and first time having sex, things start to really take off. So for you, which comes first — exchanging keys to your separate homes, or do you need to have "the talk" first, to discuss where your relationship is going?
Weigh in and tell us if you forgive or not forgive this True Confession.
"I'm dating three guys right now. None of them know about each other, and two of them are friends. I love the attention I'm getting, but why do I create this drama for myself? I haven't had 'the talk' with any of them yet, so is it fair game to continue dating all three?"
The Hills started out last night with Stephanie telling Lauren that she and her boyfriend, Cameron, had "the talk" to make their relationship officially official. While putting labels on relationships is important to some, others aren't comfortable putting their feelings on the line — a must when having that type of discussion. Sure, there's a level of ease that comes with knowing where you stand in your relationship, but having "the talk" seems a little outdated to me. What do you think? Do you typically have "the talk" in your relationships, or do you tend to let things progress naturally?

Dear E. Jean,
Quick question: I just started seeing somebody pretty great. I want to know when is the best time to ask him how he feels about the relationship? In other words, how long should I wait before we have “the talk”? I don’t want to screw this up! P.S. I’m 28. —Eager to Know

There is no denying it --it feels great when you first start dating someone new, but it can also be extremely overwhelming and stressful when you aren't 100% sure what the status of your relationship is. Are you dating exclusively? What does he tell his friends? His family? Is he seeing other people? Can you call him your boyfriend? The unknown is so confusing but having "the talk" can be incredibly nerve wracking -- so what should you do?! Is it best to avoid having the talk and let things just progress naturally or is it better to define your relationship and avoid all the confusion?
What I want to know is, do you think it is a good idea or a bad idea to have "the talk" with your new boyfriend or girlfriend?
