This week, some of the most emotional drama was not on the network soaps but with the ladies of CBS afternoon hit talk series, The Talk.
All week long we have been posting secret reveals of the co-hosts from Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler, to Sara Gilbert, that were all part of The Talk’s season four premiere week. But on Friday’s episode, a real shocker and painful admission came from Sheryl Underwood.
The comedienne and co-host admitted she was actually born a twin, but her sister died in the incubator at the hospital. Her mother had told Sheryl her father killed her twin to try to get her to hate him. When Sheryl was 5 years old, she witnessed domestic violence when her mother stabbed her father. Sheryl considers her sister her “guardian angel” and feels her presence every day.
The faces of disbelief, shock, and sadness on the faces of Aisha Tyler, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, and Julie Chen, also illustrated that they had no idea what Sheryl was going to say, and how heartbreaking it was. But one thing is for sure, if you watched the entire segment, Underwood discusses how she lives her life every day, as we all go through our own personal struggles and challenges, with the help of her “twin” sister and trying to help others.
Watch the touching reveal of Sheryl’s emotional childhood trauma after the jump! Then, let us know if you were affected by her personal story!
