  • Lost Hero

    Taking it all off? Please God, no.

  • Max

    Why? What’s the point in seeing older women with no makeup?

  • cc

    Geez, the show is scary enough already.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Could you imagine if the women (I use that term loosely here) on “The View” had done that? There would be a national panic. The NYPD would resign, en masse; stores would be looted then burned, and in the streets, dogs mating with cats! Whoa, NOT a pretty picture.

  • Hillbilly

    No makeup won’t draw in more men. Stop being such a tease & get naked. ;)

  • Cookie Louise

    I don’t wish to see the yentas on ‘THE TALK’ with or without makeup, nor do I wish to see them with or without clothing.

  • willow

    not all women wear makeup you know. and those of us that dont are usually more gorgeous than the fakes that do. if you dont like a woman without makeup, by a blowup barbi doll and stay off the internet. you dont belong in a civil world!!!

  • sandra

    I had to comment. I can’t say enough about how great these women are to do the show without makeup. I admire them for their braveness, and especially for showing women to be who you are and that you are secure women trying to set an example for all women. We all know that makeup enhances most people, but it is not and should not be the most important thing in many of women’s lives. Thank you The Talk Hosts for a great show. Best ofLuck for a Long Run. P.S. I am also a diehard The View fan. Go Girls!!

    I cannot believe that the producers felt that Leah Remini was too loud and abrasive and they don’t think Sheryl Underwood isn’t. I cannot stand her screaming and screeching. I tuned in today just to see if it has changed since Leah and Holly left and I will say that I will still not be watching.
