The Talk LIVE — Sheryl Underwood and cast push Howie Mandel to address shocking rumors on-air ahead of AGT… – The US Sun

THE Talk's season premiere on Monday kicked off with summer fun at an outdoor carnival featuring celebrity guests, luxury giveaways, and an emotional tribute that closed out the episode.
The new season's cast welcomed guest Howie Mandel to the daytime show, where co-hosts Sheryl Underwood and Natalie Morales asked the AGT judge to address the fiery rumors that he has grown to be "harsher" than famously critical fellow judge Simon Cowell.
Howie immediately responded by saying that he's not mean to the acts performing in the talent competition – he's just "being honest." Host Jerry O'Connell backed up the comedian and said that his kids love Howie because the two celebrities are neighbors.
The season premiere ended with musician Andy Grammer performing an emotional song dedicated to cancer survivors, causing the cast to become emotional as they spoke about the recent passing of the show's beloved executive producer Heather Gray.
Season 13 of The Talk airs on weekdays at 2pm ET on CBS and Paramount Plus.

NSFW moment
The Talk hosts Sheryl Underwood and Akbar Gbajabiamila shocked fans with a NSFW reenactment live on air this summer.
It all started innocently enough, with the Talk hosts all discussing a viral video of a woman completely stepping over everyone in her aisle on the plane to get to her window seat.
When it came time for Sheryl to share her opinion on it, she joked that if she were sitting on the plane and a man had climbed over her, she would have very specific thoughts about it.
Laughing, she said to everyone: “Wait a minute, you actually think that I’m not gonna realize that a man has invited me to join the Mile High Club while he steps over me?”
That’s when she and co-host Akbar decided to act out that situation for the rest of their hosting panel, the live audience, and everyone at home.
Sheryl sat down in one of the chairs, and when Akbar went to step over her lap, she grabbed him around his waist and held him to her. As she held him, he shot his arm up and rotated it in circles like a cowboy, making everyone laugh in shock and cover their eyes.
Natalie's career change
The Talk host Natalie Morales shocked fans on Wednesday when she made her soap opera debut on The Young and the Restless.
Natalie plays the recurring role of Talia Morgan, an investigative reporter working on an expose about the late Ashland Locke (Robert Newman).
After watching the broadcast, fans praised Natalie for her big career move.
One excited fan told her: "OMG @nmoralestv you did so good!"
Another assured her: "You are on @YandR_CBS ! You are doing an awesome job!"
Hockey giveaway
To end the season premiere episode, the hosts announced that they would be giving out two hockey tickets to each audience member.
Audience members will be seeing the Los Angeles Kings on November 12.
Natalie Morales shared that the tickets are worth about $200.

Tribute to Heather
Many people's stories and pictures flashed on the screen as Andy performed as cancer survivors shared who "saved their life," as the song says.
Pictures of Heather Gray closed out the performance, with a message reading "Heather, your light will always inspire us."
Andy dedicates his performance
Andy Grammer is about to perform his song Saved My Life, which is about his godmother, Leigh, who showed up for Andy after his mother died of cancer.
Leigh is teary-eyed in the audience as he dedicates the song to her before The Talk co-hosts say that the performance is also for Heather Gray, who was a great light.
"This song is dedicated to those who showed up when we needed them the most."
Sheryl's weight loss journey
Sheryl Underwood said that this summer, she went through her closet because her new body shape means that she has to get some new clothes.
The co-host revealed to People that she was going to have gastric bypass surgery, but that she worked on her appetite and exercised instead – leading her to lose 90 pounds.
"Definitely getting more sleep," Sheryl told the outlet of the adjustments she's made to her lifestyle.
"Drinking more water. I'm eating fruit and vegetables that I never thought: green, leafy. I'm getting into eating blueberries and eating strawberries, and also getting more fiber in my diet with fiber supplements."
Howie talks AGT
Howie tells Sheryl about the "amazing" offer that he gave comedian Mike E Winfield to open for him at a show if he didn't make it through to the next level.
Mike made it to the next level, meaning that the AGT rules wouldn't allow him to engage with Howie – meaning he couldn't perform at his show.
However, Howie said that after AGT filming is done, he's hoping that Mike will come on tour with him.
Howie has arrived
Howie Mandel arrives to The Talk's stage and gives his famous elbow touches to all of the hosts.
Howie struggles with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and anxiety. He told ABC News he was picked on often as a child because of his extreme fear of germs — a part of his OCD.
He is so afraid of germs, in fact, that shaking hands, bumping fists, and even opening door knobs can sometimes be debilitating, according to the outlet.
Howie said: "I'd think I didn't wash [my hand] well enough.
"And I'd go back and forth in a loop washing my hands for hours.
"I understand the funny in that. But it doesn't mean it isn't incredibly painful."
Kim Fields leads the way
Actress Kim Fields arrived on the outdoor set and posed as a handyman for the carnival – but as she tried to talk to the camera about her summer while walking toward the stage, the camera wouldn't follow her.
Kim gestured to the camera man and said: "Come on baby, it's a walk and talk! Go!"
Huge summer
The hosts share a look into their summers.
Akbar Gbajabiamila swam with sharks and learned how to scuba dive.
Amanda Kloots said that she went whale watching with her son while filming her upcoming Christmas movie.
Natalie Morales said that she went on a family vacation before becoming a "soap opera star" – she was in a few episodes of The Young and Restless.
Sheryl Underwood had a staycation, cleaned out her closet, and got into fantasy football.
Jerry O'Connell read a mock homework assignment out loud about what he did this summer – he went on a cruise and visited Europe.
Amanda announces that everyone in the audience at the studio has won a free vacation to NIZUC Resort & Spa in Cancun, Mexico.
The rooms at the resort range from $650 to $7,650 per night.
Show pays tribute

Amanda Kloots' major career change
Just last week, The Talk host Amanda Kloots revealed on Instagram that she is now working on a brand-new television project.
Amanda’s making her feature film debut with an upcoming holiday movie, titled Fit for Christmas, opposite actor Paul Greene.
The 40-year-old is also an executive producer on the movie, which will air on CBS – the network that also houses The Talk.
She’s filmed the movie amid her talk show’s hiatus between seasons and has been posting about her experience on Instagram.
After finishing up her first week on set, Amanda shared a couple of sweet snaps with her three-year-old son, both of them in Christmas-themed clothing.

Sharon slams The Talk, continued
Sharon continued to express her anger toward the network, telling RHONY alum Bethenny that she will "never forgive" them for giving her the boot.
"I can honestly say – now I hold no hostilities against anything that was done to me, except for CBS, and I will never forgive that network," the 69-year-old admitted.
Sharon further explained her reasons for not fighting harder to resume her position on the show.
"How can you fight CBS? I didn't want to take two to three years in court fighting them. It's like, that would've been two or three years out of my life where all I would've done was do depositions and think about them, and it like – you're not worth it."
She also cleared up rumors that she was offered "millions of dollars" to resign from the panel, saying that wasn't the case.
"It [the show] didn't give me like it was reported, millions of dollars when I went. No, I never want anyone to say that I was paid that money because I wasn't. And I don't want their money, so it's like f**k them," Sharon concluded.
Sharon slams The Talk
Former talk show host Sharon Osbourne admitted she's still angry about being fired from The Talk during a guest appearance on Bethenny Frankel's podcast, Just B.
On Thursday's episode, Sharon talked about her untimely exit from the show and how she hasn't gotten over the decision.
"CBS and the few women that were obviously not liking me, and I thought that they did, stabbed me in the back, and the thing is, are they going to stop me [from] doing something for me that I love to do?
"Are they going to put a full stop on my career? No way! I will not allow that to happen," she told the podcast's host.

Executive producers Heather Gray and Kristin Matthews revealed in a statement: "We couldn’t be more excited to have Natalie Morales join the Talk family.
"We have been fans of her and her work for years. Her varied skillset and versatility are a great addition to our talented panel.
