“The Talk” Takes it Off in Time for the Premiere

Bet I got you with that headline!

This coming Monday, CBS-TV’s “The Talk” is going to be making history when the ladies, the guests and the audience appear on the show make-up free.
Can’t wait to see what Sharon, Julie, Aisha, Sheryl and Sara look like before they start their make-up regimen on set. Even guest star Jamie Lee Curtis plans to get in on the act along with the stars of the “Young and the Restless” and “Bold and the Beautiful.” Take a look at this sneak peak!

In fact, I was so inspired by the ladies that I decided to give it a try this morning too. Take a look and ignore the opening frown. 🙂

If you want to join the ladies and me and go make-up free too, then join us via Twitter this Monday at 2pm ET where we’ll be tweeting during the show at #TweetTheTalk. Upload a photo or video to twitter and make sure you follow @TheTalk_CBS and @RoleMommy and get ready for a great season.
We’ll also be sharing more fun giveaways this year so you won’t want to miss out. Hope you’ll want to be a part of the fun — it’s going to be a wild ride!
