Monday on "The Talk" host Elaine Welteroth reflects on meeting the legendary Cicely Tyson at a Vanity Fair Oscar Party. "Somehow, I ended up being introduced to Cicely Tyson. I don't know what it was, but she just grabbed my hands and said sit down baby, and it must have been 45 minutes. It felt like an eternity. But we sat there hand in hand, like this close, locked together, and she told me stories about her life. She gave me advice. She, like, spoke to my soul... At the end, she said I would really love to continue this conversation with you." Welteroth adds, "I deeply regret, I just never called her. And two years have gone by, and when I saw she was going to be on the show, I thought this is my chance to tell her what that meant to me and now I have the courage, and now we're going to have this friendship." Continuing she adds, "I desperately regret that I never picked up the phone and called her, but now I feel I have a direct line. She's now one of our ancestors. I'm going to be calling on her daily."
