CBS’ The Talk generated lots of, well, talk last week when the hosts revealed some personal secrets. But it was Julie Chen who seemed to get the lions share of the attention (and more than a little criticism) for acknowledging how she underwent plastic surgery on her eyes when she was younger.

On Monday’s show, the hosts gave their reactions to all the reactions. While Chen didn’t address how she became an interview question at this weekend’s Miss America Pageant (kudos to winner Nina Davuluri for her diplomatic answer), the Talk co-host did admit how some online message boards were hurtful to read.
