Carrie Ann Inaba Takes Leave of Absence from ‘The Talk’

In a surprising announcement on Monday, Carrie Ann Inaba has revealed that she will be stepping away from her co-hosting duties on The Talk for now by taking a leave of absence to concentrate on her health and well-being.

This was also echoed by The Talk co-host Sheryl Underwood who let viewers know of the change and Inaba’s exit for now with the series.

In a post on her Instagram, Inaba shared: “I have decided to take a leave of absence from @TheTalkCBS to focus on my health and well being. I appreciate the support from you and my family at The Talk and hope to be back soon!”  Then in a follow-up post, Carrie Ann added: “I appreciate your support. I appreciate the love and support for The Talk family and I hope to be back soon. Take care and I’ll keep you updated.”

Underwood expressed: “We’d like to let you all know at home, Carrie Ann is taking a leave of absence from the show to focus on her well-being. She appreciates the support from all her fans and her family at ‘The Talk.’ We miss you Carrie Ann, and we look forward to having you back with us soon.”

Inaba’s departure for the moment comes on the heels of Sharon Osbourne departing the series for good, following the controversy that arose with remarks Osbourne made to Underwood on the March 10th episode of the afternoon series.

No word yet on who will replace Inaba temporarily.

So, what do you think of Carrie Ann’s decision to take a leave of absence? Comment below.

The whole show needs a leave of absence
Cbs needs another glitzy half hour soap like y n r and b n b that could be licensed overseas aswell to cover the costs, if they cabmnt vrung vack atwt or gl. The talk is the snooze. Cbs should wake up and cut its losses.

Haven’t watched since Sharon left. I really think the show continues to go downhill with each original member that has left.

I would watch ‘The Talk’ sometimes, but haven’t watched at all since Sharon left. That was the last straw. I liked it when Marie Osmond was on, but not much after that. As I said, when Sharon left,I watched no more. Love to watch The View.

I think the writing is on the wall. The show isn’t fun or interesting anymore. Sharon Osborne and Carrie Ann were worth tuning in to The Talk. Not anymore ‘

I agree! The show is not the same. Take it off the air!

Nothing, especially The Talk, is more important than one’s health. With all the drama and problems surrounding that show, removing herself is a smart move. A low-stress environment is good medicine. I pray she can feel better soon.

I somehow see a CBS News Hour program filling that slot by the fall. Cheap to produce, can easily have rotating anchors. The View will fall by the wayside, and Ms. Inaba can tell this show is a sinking ship, with no hope for an SOS.

I agree that Carrie Ann is jumping ship before it goes down. The Talk was a great entertaining show with fun guests….but the last couple years it has gone the way of the The View with very opinionated views on current events and we have enough of that with all the news programs. I just liked being entertained for an hour without all the other b.s. …I don’t and won’t watch anymore.

I stopped watching The Talk because of Sheryl. The way she portrays herself and her constant talking of her sexual antics is disgusting and a huge turn off. She should have been fired and Sharon should have stayed. Never watch it or The View both shows should be cancelled.

Haven’t watched since Sharon left. I agree Sheryl should be gone and not Sharon. I think it will soon be cancelled.

I agree. Sheryl should be gone instead of Sharon. I think Sheryl just talks about her sex life because she doesn’t have one. She just wanted to be the main host on the show. I don’t think the show will survive much longer.

judy, I agree with you that Sheryl’s graphic talk about sex is way too much. I was an occasional watcher. I remember one day a few years ago when Sheryl, in my opinion, jumped the shark: I won’t get too graphic here — though she did — but suffice it to say that she was speaking fondly of men’s armpits… Do women even talk this way in their locker rooms?!?!

I don’t like Sheryl either. She’s too OTT. I don’t like it when she has appeared on B&B.

I have really only watched when there is someone on I want to see so fortunately have not heard Sheryl’s TMI.

The Talk needs a permanent leave of absence. Wake up CBS! Bring back some soaps!
