CBS3's Ukee Washington will guest co-host "The Talk," sitting alongside hosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Aisha Tyler, Sheryl Underwood and guest host Carnie Wilson. (Regular gabber Sharon Osbourne is away this week.) That's a lot of estrogen but I think Washington can handle himself.
"The Talk" airs at 2 p.m. on CBS3.
Washington's guest slate includes Beth Behr's from CBS' "2 Broke Girls" (Behrs was born in Lancaster so she can Ukee can talk PA), actress Soleil Moon Frye (perhaps better known as Punky Brewster), a performance by TLC and chef Susan Feniger's perfect dinner party menu.
Washington isn't the first CBS3 personality to host "The Talk." Kate Bilo revealed she was pregnant when she hosted last year.
Looks like Alycia Lane is out of a job. Again.
Former CBS3 anchor Lane, who will live in Philadelphia infamy, was axed from her spot at KNBC in Los Angeles, according to TV Spy. KNBC gave no reason for the ouster.
Lane went national recently when she happened to be near the blast site of the Boston Marathon attacks, speaking with the “Today” show and “NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams.” In other recent Lane news, her suit against ex-CBS3 anchor Larry Mendte had been dismissed.
Happy birthday to Chef Emeril Lagasse who dined at Paramour Restaurant in the Wayne Hotel (139 E. Lancaster Ave., Wayne) to celebrate his 54th birthday. Lagasse was in town to shoot a new special for QVC. Looks like he was celebrating with Paramour's double chocolate brownie.
Lagasse isn't the only famous face Paramour has seen recently: Rosie O'Donnell recently stayed in the hotel, as well.

Pitman, N.J.'s own Madeline Brewer, who played cornrowed Tricia on "Orange is the New Black," just landed a role on the second season of Netflix's horror series "Hemlock Grove."
According to Deadline, Brewer will, "recur as a graphic novelist entering the town." From the mind of Eli Roth, "Hemlock Grove" centers on a rural Pennsylvania town.
Brewer brought great pathos to drug-addicted homeless thief in her first onscreen role. "I never saw [Tricia] in a bad light, I never saw her as a hardened criminal," Brewer told me when we chatted in August. She was just a person who made some bad decisions. That’s true for a lot of people, and a lot of people behind bars. That doesn’t alter who they are as a person. They just screwed up somewhere along the way and they’re paying for it."
West Chester's own daredevil, Bam Margera, is a married man once more.
The "Jackass" star wed Nicole Boyd in front of a crowd at the Random Hero Festival in Reykjavik, Iceland this weekend. The concert, where he played with his band F---face Unstoppable, was a benefit for a new skate park.
Margera has walked down the aisle before. His first trip was with Melissa Rothstein, a childhood buddy who also attended West Chester East High School in 2007. "Bam's Unholy Union" chronlcled the ups and downs of their engagment. In 2010, Margera revealed that he and Rothstein were no longer cohabitating, and their divorce was finalized in 2012.
Philly-area natives are killing it on this year's blind auditions for NBC's "The Voice." First it was Levittown's Matthew Schuler. Now another local Matt is turning chairs.
Phoenixville's Matt Cermanski turned the chairs of Cee-Lo, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine on last night's episode after singing "Have a Little Faith in Me." Cermanski, a current student at Montgomery County Community College who also has an album on iTunes, auditioned last year with Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream," but turned no chairs because, as Levine said, it was weird.
Cermanski, who already has quite the following on Twitter, eventually went with Team Adam, who said they were meant for each other.
