[VIDEO] “The Talk”: Carrie Ann Inaba quits CBS daytime talk show


Carrie Ann Inaba’s leave from The speech became a permanent outlet for CBS’s daytime talk show.

Inaba will not be returning to the chatfest, TVLine confirmed.

“I enjoyed my stay at The speech as co-host and moderator and I am grateful for the opportunity I have had to grow with the ensemble Speak family and really connecting with viewers on such a personal level, ”Inaba said in a statement. “I will miss The speech, but I’m excited for the next chapter, both for myself and for the show.

Inaba walked away from The speech towards the end of April, announcing via social networks that she had decided to “focus on my well-being.” I know you understand, ”she said in a video to fans. “Health is the most important thing.” She later added: “Hope to be back soon.”

By deadline, Inaba’s departure was the result of a mutual decision between her and CBS.

In a separate joint statement, The speech Executive Producers Heather Gray and Kristin Matthews said, “The authenticity and openness of Carrie Ann has created a special connection and relationship with our audience… We will always be grateful for her contributions here at The speech over the past 3 seasons. Her warmth, wisdom and vulnerability are just a few of her many admirable traits that will be missed. We wish him success and good health for the future.

Later on Friday, Inaba posted a series of videos to her Twitter feed. “I am filled with gratitude for this experience and for this chapter of my life which has been The speech, “she said. (The six-part video begins with the post below.)

Inaba’s decision to take time off came after former co-host Sharon Osbourne quit the CBS daytime series in late March following a controversial on-air discussion about whether the comments from the British TV personality Piers Morgan about Meghan Markle were racist. In the March 10 episode, Osbourne spoke fervently to defend both her friend, Morgan, and herself against suspicion of being racist; in the process, she frequently spoke to co-host Sheryl Underwood, which led some viewers to criticize Osbourne’s behavior.

The show was cut off while an internal review was being conducted. When CBS announced Osbourne’s departure at the end of March, it added that Osbourne’s behavior “towards his co-hosts on the March 10 episode was inconsistent with our values ​​for a respectful workplace.” .

In July, recurring Speak guest host Jerry O’Connell has been promoted, making him the show’s first permanent male co-host. “It’s fun, and it works, and we’re going to have a lot of fun,” O’Connell told viewers upon his arrival.

The speech is currently on a summer break and is expected to return with new episodes in September.
