REPORT: Carrie Ann Inaba to be Replaced by a Male Co-Host on ‘The Talk’

Photo: JPI

The ever-changing face of CBS Daytime’s, The Talk continues.  Now comes a report from Page Six, that the series is looking for yet another male co-host, and this time to replace Carrie Ann Inaba, who has been on an extended leave of absence from the show.

If another male co-host becomes part of the cast, that would mean the once all-female dominated talker, will now have Jerry O’Connell, who was recently made a permanent co-host and whomever the next man up would be.

According to Page Six sources: “They haven’t announced it, but Carrie Ann is not returning, and they’ve been trying out comics and athletes to take her place.”

Back in April, Inaba, who also is one of the celebrity judges every season on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, took a leave from the show citing her health as the reason for her exit.  That came after Sharon Osbourne’s explosive and controversial on-air moment in March with Sheryl Underwood, and the fallout afterwards that developed, which insiders say did not sit well with Carrie Ann.

In June, when word got out that The Talk would live on post-Osbourne, Carrie Ann sent her congrats to the cast and the show and thanked everyone who worked there following the announcement that CBS picked-up the series for a 12th season.

So, who do you think would be a good male co-host to join The Talk? Do you hope Carrie Ann somehow returns, even though it looks  doubtful she would? Comment below.

OK, this is what I have to say about all this

Whatever Carrie Anne’s reason is for leaving, bringing another man on is NOT the way to go!!
I thought Jerry O’Connell could be a good addition to the show, but…sorry, he is a disaster!!!
Jerry doesn’t know the first thing about interviewing a guest! I am embarrassed for him!!

The time has come to pull the plug an this “fest” Along with THE VIEW, this show is no longer relevant!
Pull. The. Plug!!

Why you ask? Because that would be a step backwards. I would think most women would not want to go back to the 1950’s MadMen days when they took a back seat to men as there secretaries, girl Fridays or submissive housewife. It’s a slippery slope for women to let there guard down now when it comes to their rights that they have worked so hard to obtain. Just a few days ago a new law was signed in Texas that took away a woman’s right to make decisions about her own body. I have read studies show that counties… Read more »

I don’t know how you can say the View is not relevant. They demonstrate what a relevant show is. Every day includes current political issues. The Talk never did that.

The reason Sarah was on the show is because she created it & is some big important producer or director or whatever.

This so call the talk is a bunch of selfish women & men who only want to talk about themselves.And any monkey can host that show look at sherly she a complete sick individual always in heat when a man goes on the show,it makes them looks ridiculously.
Along with the topics that are
Not even interesting.So they might as well cancel this show.As they do not have a fan base as no body wants to watch ppl who are bullies.

This show is truly not what it used to be. I miss the panel with Julie, Aisha, Sharon and Sara. I also liked Marie Osmond and I’m disappointed that Carrie Ann is leaving. Elaine and Amanda are boring co-hosts, and I don’t like the fact that Sheryl is now the de-facto moderator. Whoever they bring in next better be a big name if the show has any hope of a ratings spike, which it desperately needs.

Judith A Chisholm

I agree with Jimmy. I have stopped watching this show. CBS has gone to far. Has no one there heard of freedom of speech. Just because you disagree with someones point of view doesn’t mean you should get rid of them. CBS has been doing this over and over again starting with Julie. As for Jerry O’Connell he acts like a big kid instead of an adult. Can’t stand that in a man.

I did not like particularly like Sharon Osbourne, but I have not enjoyed watching the show since her departure. I think Carrie Ann Inaba did a good job; she was articulate and demonstrated a good mix of humor and intelligence. Jerry O’Connell does nothing for me at all and I haven’t really been wowed by any of the other male co-hosts that they have been auditioning. I have gone back to watching GH at 2:00 despite having watched The Talk consistently prior to the fallout

Carolyn Grissett

I do not like Jerry O’Connell. He brings absolutely nothing too the show. Sheryl Underwood needs to go also. She does nothing for the show. Do not like her. I still watch the show. I like Amanda. She’s good. Elaine, I am still not too sure about her.

Glad Carrie Ann isn’t coming back,because what escalated during that episode was a disgrace! Those other three ladies need to go. There proformance and insight on topics are boring!

I have enjoyed The Talk sometimes over the years and sometimes not, depending on the topic. I have always had a neutral stance on the women that have been hosts on the show. After the ugliness of the situation earlier in the year, I agree with the decision to let Sharon go. I have enjoyed the show’s substitution with male hosts. I’m glad that they have made the decision to bring a male host to the show on a permanent basis. It brings a different view and opinion. I would have picked someone other than Jerry O’Connell though…

I don’t watch the show any longer. I don’t like Jerry as a co-host. I think he is a mess. The show is not the same as it was in the beginning. Boring and too controversial. Everything comes down to race and politics. Following in the views footsteps

Bring back Leah Remini she has a big mouth and would probably cause controversy (ie ratings). Sharon Osbourne bugs me.

Carrie was by far the best of the remaining hosts. She was articulate and in control of her emotions. I didn’t realize the show was still on this summer so I don’t have a current opinion regarding Jerry, but I have seen him on previous shows and I can’t imagine he’s a good fit. I had watched this show since day one. It was a huge loss when Sara left, but I grew to enjoy Eve. Aisha was fine. My least favorite has always been Sheryl. She’s not a bad person, but we don’t share many of the same opinions.… Read more »

Ugh! No more men! Jerry O’Connell gives me hives, he’s so bad! I’m sorry Carrie Ann won’t be back. She was a breath of fresh air. There isn’t a single man they’ve tried out that has done really well. Either get a couple of women with brains and personality, or pull the plug!

The Talk was something I really liked watching. I liked the idea that there were different generations of ladies. I really miss Sharon Osborn and think she got a raw deal. Sheryl got her way. I don’t like the idea of a male on the panel. This show is watched mainly by women and their point of view. There is only one woman on there now that I like and I can’t remember her name. It is not Sheryl or the blond lady and certainly not Jerry. All the ladies from the earlier shows did a great job. I will… Read more »

The show direction is awful, I boycotted it several months ago, It’s dying, Sheryl was the worse of all the original host. I remember commenting how demoralizing she was to male guest by making sexual innuendos, especially when there was big backlashes happening regarding producers, and female entertainers/actresses etc…Yet the network continued to allow Sheryl to act this way, so when someone than acts or says something offensive, she cries she was traumatized…Sheryl you traumatized me with your demeaning acts against male guess…but thats ok…The show is baseless, and viewers lost trust in getting un bias information get rid of… Read more »

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Iman Shumbert & Pro Daniella Karagach Win The Mirror Ball Trophy Making Show History

Monday’s night’s season 30 finale of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars was markedly the best in the series history, with some of the finest routines delivered by the four couples vying for the Mirror Ball Trophy.

In the end, it was former NBA basketball player Iman Shumbert, who made history along with is pro dance partner, Daniella Karagach, when he beat out Jo Jo Siwa and her pro partner, Jenna Johnson for the top prize.

Rounding out the competition: fourth place went to The Talk’s Amanda Kloots and pro Alan Bersten, and the third spot went to Peloton instructor, Cody Rigsby and pro Cheryl Burke,

With the win, Shumbert becomes not only the first basketball star to make it to the finals, but the first-ever to win the coveted Mirror Ball,

The judges and the at-home audience were blown away by his final dance of the competition – an epic freestyle to Missy Elliot’s “Lose Control”  and “Bounce” by DJ Clent.  Iman is married to singer and dancer, Teyana Taylor.

After the big win, Shumbert told Entertainment Tonight, “Hats off to the work that we put in. I think me and Dani set our mind to that when we got that 40, that we don’t want to just to drop off now and just steam out of the competition. I think we just put in a lot of hours and when it was time to perform, it got easy.”

Check out Iman and Dani’s final routine below.

Now let us know, were you rooting for Iman and Daniella to win the Mirror Ball? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Derek Hough Tests Positive for COVID-19 Following ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Semi-Finals

Following Monday’s night’s semi-final battle of what couples would dance in next week’s season finale, Dancing with the Stars judge, Derek Hough, revealed on Tuesday morning that he has contracted Covid-19.

On his Instagram, Hough revealed he is fully vaccinated, but like others before him, is a breakthrough case.

This makes Hough the third person at DWTS, who publicly revealed they came down with the virus this season. Previously pro dancer Cheryl Burke and her celebrity partner, Cody Rigsby contracted Covid and were quarantined.

In his video statement, Derek shared: “Even though I’ve been fully vaccinated, I’ve just been diagnosed with a breakthrough case of COVID. I just found out and I feel OK. I feel strong. I’m currently taking advice from medical professionals to get better as fast as I can. I’m currently in quarantine.”

He added: “I’ll make sure to keep you guys all updated with what’s going on, but I just want to send my love out there to all. Stay safe.”

Because of Covid safety protocols, no word or mention has been made yet, if Hough will be judging next week’s DWTS finals, although he is canceling his shows in Vegas this week.

Photo: ABC

Last night’s competition saw a touching performance by The Talk co-host, Amanda Kloots, and her pro partner Alan Bersten, dancing to her late husband, Nick Cordero’s song “Live Your Life.” Cordero died of complications from Covid-19.

However, at the end of the night Kloots and Bersten found themselves in the bottom two along with Olympian Suni Lee and pro Sasha Farber.  In the end, the judges votes saved Amanda and Alan, and they will dance in the finals.

Photo: ABC

They join :JoJo Siwa and pro Jenna Johnson, Iman Shumpert and pro Daniella Karagach, and Cody Rigsby and pro Cheryl Burke.  Sent home along with Suni and Sasha were Melora Hardin and her pro partner, Artem Chigvintsev.

So, do you think Derek will be back to judge the DWTS finals? Which couple are you rooting for to take home the Mirror Ball Trophy? Comment below.

DANCING WITH THE STARS Double Elimination: Olivia Jade and Val & Jimmie Allen and Emma Sent Home

Monday edition’s of Dancing with the Stars was Janet Jackson night where the remaining couples upped the quality of the competition with some of the best routines of the season to classic Janet. However, the night was also billed as a ‘double elimination’ before heading into next week’s semi-finals.

The couples that were “safe” and moving on were: Suni Lee and pro Sasha Farber, JoJo Siwa and pro Jenna Johnson, Amanda Kloots and pro Alan Bersten, Cody Rigsby and pro Cheryl Burke, and Iman Shumpert and pro Daniella Karagach.

Photo: ABC

Landing in the bottom three were: Olivia Jade and pro Val Chmerkovskiy, Jimmie Allen and pro Emma Slater, and Melora Hardin and pro Artem Chigvintsev.

Then, host Tyra Banks revealed a shocker, that Lori Loughlin’s (Ex-Edge of Night) daughter, Olivia Jade and her partner Val, scored the lowest of the night combining the judges score and the at-home vote.  Olivia struggled to get the popular vote throughout the season while being a fierce competitor on the ballroom dance floor, landing in the bottom two, previously.  Loughlin and Jade had been at the epicenter of the college admissions scandal.

That left Jimmie and Emma and Melora and Artem for the judges to vote and who to save.  All the judges voted to save Melora, thus ending the dance journey for Jimmie.

Photo: ABC

The Talk’s Amanda Kloots and pro partner Alan scored high marks –  a 40 from the judges for their impressive Jazz routine to Janet’s “Miss You Much”. Also receiving a 40, were Suni Lee and Sasha for their Samba to “All For You”, and Melora and Artem’s for their Paso Doble to Jackson’s “If”.

Following the couples solo performances, they were paired in a dance-off opposite another duo for the first time this season.  In the dance-off, the couples were vying for extra points from the judges while dancing to the same type of routine and to the same Jackson song, side-by-side.

So, did the right two couples get sent home? Who are you rooting for from who is left in the competition to take home the Mirror Ball Trophy? Let us know in the comment section.
