Jerry O’Connell was a guest Monday on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen and found himself defending his co-workers. O’Connell became a permanent co-host of The Talk in 2021 after years of serving as both guest and guest-host. While he has thrived on the daytime talk show, Cohen claims the Stand by Me star is the only one.
“I have to say, I have been noticing all day, Jerry, because I saw you this morning too, you have been hunched over all day,” Cohen said. “And I know it's because you are carrying The Talk on your back. Honestly. I'm sorry but CBS should quadruple your salary. There is one person carrying the show and I'm sorry but he is sitting right here because without Jerry there ain't no show. There ain't no show without Jerry.”
O’Connell shares hosting duties with Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Sheryl Underwood and Natalie Morales. Throughout Cohen’s rant, O’Connell adamantly denied that there was any validity to what was being said.
“We love everyone at The Talk,” said O’Connell. “I am currently employed there … Andy’s words, not mine. I love everyone.”
