There still hasn't been an official statement from CBS or Carrie Ann either way (though the longer she's out, the less likely her coming back is). Personally,I think CBS should do a complete rehaul of the format and set...and change the show's title. Once they decided to add a man full-time, it was no longer The Talk as it always was.

Just announced: she’s leaving. Lame that it was announced on a Friday night like a political scandal, but CAI probably just wants to put this show behind her.


JMHO a co-ed panel is a smart move when there are so many View clones on daytime TV (and Kelly and Ryan is a great example of a female-male duo being successful—I think people like having the interplay of both genders represented and there are so many conversations on these shows where the absence of a male perspective is strongly felt). I just don’t have much faith in this particular show and these particular people.

That was probably the most anticlimactic, non-surprising announcement ever. Did anyone not see this coming?  It's a shame, really, because she did bring a lot of sunshine in those first couple of years. Through her, I learned more about autoimmune diseases. I both cried for her and cheered for her as she shared her story of overcoming sexual abuse. She and Sheryl seemed to have a real bond (and I'm sorry that things seemed to turn sour between them). Anyway, I wish Carrie Ann well as she turns the page on this show.

As far as co-ed panels go, I like Daily Blast Live a lot. Their set looks more like a newsroom, and they have many enlightening discussions on current events. As far as The Talk goes, they have replaced hosts every year since 2017. In just the past 12 months, they've had to make four host changes (Marie, Eve, Sharon and now Carrie Ann. This show is gutted.

Wow, and they really focused a lot of attention on Elaine (whom I increasingly found an iffy fit for this particular format). The new Project Runway season is coming soon.

CBS is a shitshow with a few exceptions (like The Equalizer).

Elaine Welteroth made her career as being a pretty well-respected journalist. She became better known for her work as the editor-in-chief at Teen Vogue (only the 2nd Black person to hold the position at Conde Nasty), which did some ground breaking articles (certainly better quality than grown up Vogue) and had developed into a well oiled social media machine, churning out insightful and eye grabbing tweets (they have since dropped down from prominence since then, imo).

I admit, the announcement of Welteroth being a panelist on The Talk raised eyebrows (namely mine) but I guess she's got bills to pay like everyone else.

Yes, I dug up this post because I knew Welteroth wouldn't stay for long. She's had a respectable career, why would she throw away what she'd worked so hard to build?

I've known about Elaine before she became nationally relevant and I felt like that EIC job at Teen Vogue was a sinking ship that she kept it  afloat iand then some. She successfully transition Teen Vogue when cease print publication due to declining sales to a high traffic social media machine.
