The Talk: Kathy Griffin

Recapo update: Here are the segments from this episode.

Kathy Griffin seems to be perpetually stuck on the D-List. Heck, she even made a TV series about it. However, you have to credit the 52-year-old for sticking around so long. She has cut out for herself a lane that is very unique in the comedic world – mocking celebrities, embellishing stories about celebrities, observational humor, and even creating a controversy for herself after making a few remarks about Jesus (who hasn’t?). She really does it all. So never mind the niche thing – that doesn’t really apply to such a prolific woman.

Other pop-culture appearances from this fine woman have come in the form of spots on everything from Seth McFarlane’s American Dad, to Days of Our Lives, to Comedy Central’s now-cancelled show Crank Yankers. It would seem that her D-List portfolio is just as well-rounded as her comedic acts. Given all of that, I really have no idea what to expect from this woman when she comes on the show.

The Talk: Natasha Bedingfield

Debuting in 2004 with her album Unwritten, British pop singer Natasha Bedingfield came out the gate swinging when she got a Grammy Award Nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for the single “Unwritten.” Despite her first album’s worldwide success, her second release, N.B. was only released in the UK, where it yielded two top 10 singles: “I Wanna Have Your Babies” and “Soulmate,” because those topics seem totally related on an emotional level. Despite the absent second album, her third album “Strip Me” came to America in 2010.

The Talk: Linda Perry

Linda Perry, of 4 Non Blondes fame, has recently taken on a more traditional singer-songwriter role. Some of her more recent work includes the “iPhone Sessions,” where Linda recorded herself playing acoustic cover songs of everything from “Creep” by Radiohead to “Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers. They are pretty neat and  definitely worth checking out.
