Elaine Welteroth Exits ‘The Talk’

Another host is departing The Talk.  Two weeks ago we saw Carrie Ann Inaba officially exit and now comes news that Elaine Welteroth is also out at the CBS series.

In a statement on her departure, Welteroth noted:,”It is an absolute honor for anyone, but especially a young Black woman, to occupy space on-air where our perspectives are largely underrepresented. It was gratifying to be able to show up as my authentic self in front of a live national audience every day in a world as divided as ours and to stay true to myself and what I stand for.  I came to The Talk to break out of my own echo chamber and to join a diverse cast in helping to bridge some of the divides in our world through conversation and empathy. I’m proud of how I represented myself and my community. But as I always say: when the music changes, so must your dance! I will miss my talented co-hosts and crew and I wish them the very best. Thanks to all those who tuned in every day.”

The Talk EP’s, Heather Gray and Kristin Matthews, offered up in a joint statement on Welteroth’s exit: “We wish Elaine all the best. We are grateful for her passion, enthusiasm, and insight she brought to the show daily. Her openness and meaningful conversations were attributes we admired and always appreciated.”

Welteroth is a New York Times best-selling author having previously worked as editor-in-chief at Teen Vogue, along with her work at Ebony and Glamour.   Elaine is now promoting her other show, Project Runway, where she recently shared on her socials: “Best (season) yet, coming in hot October 14th.”

The Talk returns for its new season on September 13th.  Just what the ultimate line-up of co-hosts will look like down the road could be anybody’s guess at this point.

So, what do you think of the exit of Elaine Welteroth? Will you miss seeing her on The Talk? Comment below.

This show is in crash and burn mode. No surprise.

I liked Elaine, as well as Amanda, so I’m sorry to see her go. I absolutely will NOT be watching next season. Sheryl and Jerry are awful! I feel sorry for Amanda!
Time to pull the plug on the unholy mess!

I’m curious to know why CBS would stick with this show after so many hosts have left. Something’s definitely amiss when hosts are so willing to walk away. Elaine, like Carrie, was professional, authentic, and well spoken. I stopped watching earlier this year as Elaine was the only left who interested me, but one host out of four was not enough to keep my interest.

CBS cancel The Talk and put a soap back on. I woud love to see a reboot of Capitol from the 80s–great time for a soap based in DC.

“Young”? I wouldn’t use that word to describe Elaine. 😀

I also used to enjoy this show and the way the previous co-hosts would comfortably chat… I believe now it’s become a time and place where everyone is walking on egg shells and can’t say how they feel about a subject without getting ripped!!

CBS is not getting the message. CANCEL The Talk and bring back some soaps!

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!
