“It was an amazing, amazing night,” Aisha Tyler told the audience. “[It was] beautiful and it was at sunset and just overlooking the ocean. I mean we can’t tell much about it because we want Sara to talk about it.”
Echoed fellow host Julie Chen: “It was magical. It was the most beautiful ceremony … When she returns on Monday, we’re going to show you pictures from the wedding and talk about it.”
Sounds lovely! I love me a gay wedding, so I’m all for this. Congrats to the happy couple!

Sharon Osbourne is part of the panel for The Talk, a CBS mid-morning, stay-at-home mom-geared chat show that’s like The View but without the obnoxious Republicanism and closeted lesbianism (looking at you, Whoopi). However, Sharon Osbourne thinks The Talk is in a whole other league, and she really hates the show’s ABC counterpart and isn’t shy about saying it.
Here’s how it went down on The Arsenio Hall Show (via US Weekly):
“What’s the difference between The Talk and The View?” host Hall, 57, asked the women. “We do not discuss politics. We do not debate,” Julie Chen said. “I always say The View has changed over the years as the players have changed.” But before the Big Brother host could continue, the audience began to laugh as Osbourne, 61, was seen rolling her eyes and throwing her red plastic cup in the air after taking a big swig of something to drink.
“Cut to the chase! Stop being polite. Cut to the f–king chase!” Jack and Kelly Osbourne’s mom interrupted. “This is the situation. The situation is Barbara [Walters] — idolize her. Divine. She’s superhuman. I love Barbara Walters. The rest can go f–k themselves.”
HAHA! I mean, listen – The View sucks. It always has and it always will. However, The Talk isn’t any better. The panelists might be less obnoxious, but it’s still boring as shit. However, you gotta love Mrs O for her honesty. She so doesn’t give a shit.

Julie Chen just confessed to a big secret. When she was twenty-five she got plastic surgery to widen her eyes, after feeling pressure from her boss to change her appearance who said that her “Asian eyes” made her look “disinterested and bored”. And now she’s discussing the backlash…
…of which there was hardly any. Haha got you. From Us Weekly, via E Online:
I felt vulnerable and nervous that the haters who hide behind their computers on the Internet would come out and say mean things. And some did. That was expected.
I was pleasantly surprised by all the supportive emails, tweets, and postings from our show’s viewers who are not Asian, but told me they understood my story,” the 43-year-old Chinese-American added. “To them I say, thank you.”
I always feel awkward whenever people say “haters” outside of the Internet. Ms. Chen goes on to say that was, “overwhelmed with love and relief when [my mom] sent me an email right after it aired, saying she and my father could not be more proud of me.”
I’m guessing though her parents had to have noticed at some point and that this wasn’t a huge secret to them.

Julie Chen got plastic surgery when she was around 25. But it wasn’t your typical plastic surgery (read: not boobs). It was to “fix” her “Asian eyes.” And she felt like she had no choice but to undergo the procedure. Here’s what she had to say about it, on The Talk (via Daily News):
[My boss at the time] said, ‘Let’s face it Julie, how relatable are you to our community? How big of an Asian community do we have in Dayton? On top of that, because of your Asian eyes, I’ve noticed that when you’re on camera, you look disinterested and bored.’ [And my agent] said, ‘I cannot represent you unless you get plastic surgery to make your eyes look bigger.’
Good lord. Wow. This is stuff I’ve never had to think about. That’s terrible. And racism against Asian-americans is still alive and well, as Chen got to see firsthand while hosting the deplorable Big Brother. That Aaryn had simply delightful things to say about Asians.
Chen got the surgery (as shown in the above before/after photo she brought to the show). She mused,
After I had it done, the ball did roll for me. And I wondered, ‘Did I give in to the man?
She goes on to say that she has no regrets.
One question Julie: what’s the reason for the obvious nose job you’re not talking about? Just wondering.
