Talk That's Trending: Walters, Jolie Mastectomy & Abercrombie!

Posted on May 17, 2013 11:20am

There was a lot of talk around the watercooler and the web this week with legendary news anchor and talk show host Barbara Walters announcing her retirement. Congratulations Barbara! Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie made a shocking revelation about her recent double mastectomy to reduce her risk of developing cancer (her mom died of ovarian cancer at age 56).  Sharon praised Jolie for her courageous decision while speaking openly about having a double mastectomy a few years ago when she tested positive for the breast cancer gene.  Then, the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch took a lot of heat when he admitted his clothes were not made for fat or poor people, which prompted Kirstie Alley to speak out against him and one man encouraged people to start donating their Abercrombie clothes to the homeless.  Lastly, one unruly airline passenger with a really bad ear for music was thrown off a plane because she refused to stop singing an incredibly horrendous rendition of "I Will Always Love You". Tune in all next week for more great gossip and guests and make sure you #TweetTheTalk with us at 2pm ET.
