This week Sharon Osbourne achieved the previously unthinkable by making "The Talk" more of a conversation piece than "The View. To review: Morgan reminded us of what a peach he is on Monday by responding to the vulnerability Markle showed during Sunday's "Oprah with Meghan and Harry" special on CBS , including her confession that at one point she "didn't want to be alive anymore," by declaring on ITV's "Good Morning Britain" that he didn't believe a word she said.
