After much rumor and speculation on why favored co-hosts Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete were fired from the CBS show “The Talk” last year, former co-host Leah Remini finally decided to spill the beans on what really transpired on and off the set. (more…)

Holly Robinson Pete is still trying to understand her recent dismal from the daytime show, “The Talk” as the actress and host explains she was not given any notice or reason on why she was canned.

In an interview with Access Hollywood, Pete explains:

“I wasn’t given a reason. I loved doing ‘The Talk.’ I was really good at it. I was in my comfort zone. I didn’t know if I could do daytime, live TV. I always wanted to do it, and I was feeling great about it,” she said. “I did everything I was asked to do and brought it.”

Many fans apparently have had her sentiments as they have threatened to stop watching the show if the decision to fire her and Leah Remini wasn’t changed.

Peete told Access that it would have been nice for someone to address the change on the show, like Barbara Walters would on “The View.”

While the network’s decision comes as a shock to her, Peete still maintains a strong work ethic as she manages a recurring role on “Mike and Molly” and has a cameo on upcoming “21 Jump Street” movie.

“That’s some old school stuff,” she said. “It’s not your parents’ 21 Jump Street,” she said. Although “Hanging With Mr. Cooper” and “21 Jump Street” ended their runs years ago, Holly assured fans, “I still got it.”

Since the departure of Leah Remini and Holly Robinson-Pete from CBS’ “The Talk” many viewers have been voicing their discontent with the network’s revision.

And today makes three weeks since “The Talk” premiered its Season 2 without the two original hosts. Not surprisingly, emails and messages from viewers expressing surprise and anger over Remini and Peete’s recasting continue to flow into CBS almost daily.

Viewers claim they won’t be watching the show any longer and some have even started to launch a petition to bring the women back to the show. Yet, CBS are sticking to their guns as the network is reporting, the while viewers are undoubtedly angry about the changes, the viewership has not changed.

Check out the Hollywood Reporter ratings analysis after the break and what CBS president, David Stapf offered as his reasoning for letting the two women go.

This fall, expect some major changes in your daytime programming on CBS. The network had recently announced that their daytime talk show, “The Talk” – has decided to fire not renew contracts for industry vets Leah Remini and Holly Robinson.

Instead, the show is now making room for reality TV (mom)anger, Kris Jenner (from Keeping Up with Kardashians) and comedienne/ announcer (and noted Republican and supporter of President Bush) Sheryl Underwood. -_-

Why the sudden change?

Well, CBS has brought on Jenner to fill in for Sharon Osbourne who is “taking time of to be with her husband Ozzy” and possibly to fill Leah’s role for 2 weeks, while Sheryl is coming on as a “fill-in” with the option to become a permanent co-host (if she can gel with the other cast-mates).

While CBS is still searching for permanent hosts, Sheryl and Kris will join Julie Chen and Sara Gilbert on Sept. 6 for the debut of season 2.

Will you be watching? O_o
