Secondly, prepare yourself for some daytime craziness, courtesy of Talk‘s premiere week lineup of guests, which include Christie Brinkley, Jennifer Lopez, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Cheryl Burke (who is seriously messing up the female guest fandango by coming on with a dude, her Dancing with the Stars‘ partner Rick Fox.)
