My wife’s asked me to put a question up: every day on national TV guests on talk shows spill their guts. They reveal affairs to their spouses, they call their best friend fat, they reveal intimate secrets; and then the target of their confidences comes on and also talks about these intensely personal matters.
Are they actors?
Are they getting paid?
Are they desparate for their ten minutes of fame?
