Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes recently visited The Talk last week as a co-host and confirmed that although their divorce was finalized earlier this year, the two are back on and dating again. According to Nene, the issues in their marriage stemmed from her coming out of his shadow and getting her own shine.

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…)

 

Earlier this week Holly Robinson Peete sat down on Wendy Williams’ couch. She spoke about her friend Whitney  Houston, her 17 year marriage, the “21 Jump Street” movie, and why she was fired from “The Talk.” (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.

Yesterday, comedienne Sheryl Underwood made her debut on the CBS’s the “The Talk” —  apparently having trouble filling in the voids left by Leah Remini and Holly Robinson.

During the show, Underwood and comedian Molly Shannon sat on the panel to dish on topics like Chaz Bono on “Dancing with the Stars” and the suicide of Russell Armstong of “Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.”

In an attempt to connect with the viewers – Sheryl decided to share a personal moment with the audience when she revealed that her husband committed suicide years ago.

While the topic was no laughing matter, Underwood offered a joke telling the audience “not to feel sorry for her because she was acquitted…thanks to her lawyer”.

Is the new Talk co-host doing too much? Watch the candid moment here:

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.
