The Talk Recap: Sarah Michelle Gellar on Valuing Fans; Can Oprah Save Lindsay Lohan? (3/5/14)

If you’re one of those who saw John Travolta on-stage at the Oscars last Sunday, then you know why The Talk has been engrossed on discussing ways of handling situations that even celebrities fumble on. Travolta, who “wickedly” introduced Idina Menzel as Adele Dazeem (or something like that), is the latest online victim for this blunder; the only thing he got right was the word lifted from the musical that Idina starred in.

The Talk Recap: Practical Advice for Chaka Khan; Pauley Perrette Reveals Ralph Waite Tribute (3/4/14)

The Talk’s top buzz was all about Chaka Khan and her apparent dissing of Beyonce as caught on camera. Chaka was seen rolling her eyes and mouthing the word b**** when a reporter complemented her look using Beyonce’s song. Chaka later apologized to Beyonce via Twitter which was eventually deleted.
