After sweeping Sharon Osbourne into a passionate embrace upon arrival, Weatherly launched into a discussion about the relative merits of corporal punishment, and the girls were quick to make him put his money where he mouth is. After Weatherly confessed he’d never been spanked by his parents, co-host Aisha Tyler asked, “Do you want to be?” Without hesitation, the star bent over and allowed the comedienne to take a few swats at his behind.
“I feel like John Travolta,” said Weatherly, alluding to the “Savages” star’s recent sex scandal. While the hosts seemed genuinely delighted over Weatherly’s dig, the audience seemed to feel differently and began to boo the star.

Shying away from controversy, Weatherly went on to talk about becoming a parent again with second wife Bojana Jankovic. Weatherly, who has a 16-year-old son with his first wife, described how watching his daughter arrive in the world has changed him forever.
“For fifteen minutes, she kind of sounded like a dying cow,” said Weatherly of his wife’s early labor noises, for which he was awarded another round of boos from the audience. Despite her bovine vocalizations, Weatherly had only the highest praise for his wife’s handling of the situation. “No drugs!” he exclaimed. “She was so radiant and beautiful an hour after the birth, it looked like she was at a cover shoot.”
