The Talk: Sharon Osbourne 911 Call
On The Talk February 5 2013, Sharon Osbourne listened to her 911 phone call recording for the first time. She called 911 about a month ago after a candle caught a table on fire in her home.
The tape was posted on the TMZ website. Sharon Osbourne said that she doesn’t believe 911 tapes should ever be released to the public, unless a trial is involved. She said this right after she listened to her tape on national television, which confuses me, because this probably gave her tape far more exposure than it would have if it just sat on the TMZ website.
Sara Gilbert asked what the good of playing the tape is. She said that people often say that our tax dollars go to pay for the 911 service, but she said that argument doesn’t hold up. Sheryl Underwood said Sharon Osbourne sounded so calm and dignified in the call. She said she would’ve been screaming and freaking out if she called 911. Julie Chen said that Sharon Osbourne definitely sounded shaken. Osbourne did acknowledge that they’d doubled the exposure by playing it on their show. Julie Chen joked that if anyone’s going to capitalize on it, they are. No kidding.
The Talk: Beyonce the Reason For Power Outage?
Some people are saying that Beyonce’s half time show caused the power outage during the Super Bowl. Officials have released information that says that Beyonce’s half time show was powered by separate generators. Beyonce may be off the hook, but Julie Chen wondered what issues her co-hosts may have been blamed for or even caused.
Sheryl Underwood said that she’s been blamed for a lot of things. Some of the things she listed were the fall of the Roman Empire, the Chicago Fire of 1871, the potato famine and the break up of Van Halen. Sara Gilbert said that she prevents things, rather than causes them. She said a friend called her and told her she was driving next to Sharon Osbourne and she said, “Pull over immediately.”
Julie Chen said that she’s been in the vicinity of car crashes and accidents and been blamed because she’s Asian and Asians are stereotypically bad drivers.
