Stevie Nicks performs on 'The Talk'When Stevie Nicks was ready to start making her first album of new material in a decade, 'In Your Dreams,' she called former Eurythmic Dave Stewart to help with the writing and producing. Nicks said Tuesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) that it was a fruitful relationship, and that they wrote a song together the first day Stewart visited Nicks' house. Nicks also put on a live performance of 'For What It's Worth.'

During the songwriting process, Stewart made it clear to Nicks that if she didn't like a song they wrote, they didn't have to use it, and that his feelings wouldn't be hurt. "He could read my face, and he could see if it was going a little the other way," said Nicks. "He would just go, 'Uh...' and he would just start playing another chord. So off we'd go another way. So I never had a chance to start having that bad experience."

Chen recounted people coming up to Bracco in a restaurant and "kissing her ring, like she's the Godfather."

Craig Ferguson and Sharon Osbourne on 'The Talk'Don't blame Craig Ferguson. It's not his fault that physics works the way it does, or that he got an easy set-up from Sharon Osbourne on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). Ferguson was on the show talking about his recent trip to Paris for 'The Late, Late Show,' which included a stop at the Moulin Rouge, where Ferguson donned some ugly workout gear to groove with the dancers.

Julie Chen asked if Richard Simmons knew Ferguson stole his look. "I was trying to look as unattractive as possible in a room full of attractive women and it seems to have paid off," said Ferguson. That's when Osbourne noted Ferguson's big feet, highlighted in the clip by his white shoes and black socks. "I have got big feet," he said. "It's because I've got other big things in my body. It's all proportion, Sharon. It's just proportion. If I didn't have big feet, I'd tip over."
