The Talk has been going through quite an overhaul within the last year, as co-hosts seem to be shifting in and out. It began with Eve departing last December before Sharon Osbourne’s dramatic exit after her heated exchange with co-host Sheryl Underwood. Soon after Osbourne’s departure, Carrie Ann Inaba took a leave of absence in April. Now, as newly-announced co-host Jerry O’Connell prepares to make his debut in a few weeks, Inaba has become the latest co-host to leave The Talk. And she marked the occasion by sharing a sweet message with her fans and many others.
Given the ambiguity surrounding her status on the daytime talk show, it’s no surprise that Carrie Ann Inaba chose to leave. According to Deadline, Inaba announced her initial hiatus to focus on her mental and physical well-being. Now, following her official departure from the talk show, the Dancing with the Stars judge has shouted out those who've been a part of the journey:
After thanking her co-hosts, crew and fans for being patient with her, Carrie Ann Inaba chose to thank former ViacomCBS head Les Moonves and Talk executive producer and former co-host Sara Gilbert on her Instagram. To see Inaba’s full loving message to The Talk and her fans, check out her Instagram post below:
Carrie Ann Inaba’s departure announcement was met with messages of love and support. Following her announcement, The Talk producers Heather Gray and Kristin Matthews released a statement about Inaba’s departure, per Deadline. The daytime producers spoke glowingly about the choreographer, saying:
Thankfully, Carrie Ann Inaba’s departure wasn’t as dramatic as Sharon Osbourne or emotional as Eve’s. Of course, now, The Talk will have to fill Inaba’s seat with a series of guest hosts until the show finds her replacement, and viewers will have to wait until September to see who the guest hosts will be. Fortunately, fan won't miss Inaba for too long as she will return for Dancing with the Stars Season 30, which premieres in September on ABC.
