'The Talk' hosts go on without makeup or regular clothes

The hosts of “The Talk” did not fully go au naturel on their season premiere, but still did the unthinkable: they didn't wear makeup.

Co-hosts Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler, Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert and Sheryl Underwood appeared in only white towels and robes, and did not wear makeup. The ladies jokingly hid their faces behind their hands when the show began, before revealing themselves.

Glibert actually dreamed up the stunt. She told Entertianment Tonight - “There's not many single one person that would go on TV in front of millions of people with no makeup, so to be in a group of people that are willing to do that together is really cool,” Gilbert said. “It shows that we're willing to show parts of our lives that not everybody is willing to show. We really are girlfriends and because we feel safe with each other, we're willing to show more of ourselves to the public."

The hosts weren’t alone in the de-glamming of the day. Celebrity guests Jamie Lee Curtis, Michelle Stafford, Melody Thomas Scott and Katherine Kelly Kang also did not wear makeup.

Here is a clip from this earth-shattering event:

I lol'd at the one random dude in the crowd, who also wore a robe. I just don't think this was that crazy of a stunt; these women looked ok, as opposed to when Kathy Lee did that on her show. Yikes.
