That was quick!

But it also doesn't surprise us one bit.

Co-host Marissa Jaret Winokur was fired from is leaving CBS' The Talk.

Marissa, who was assigned to do "Mom in the Streets" segments twice a week, says that "as the show evolved, there really wasn't room for my segments. But, she adds, "I love my co-hosts and the crew at The Talk.

She wants "to be more involved with what I'm working on," which just happens to be developing her own cable show and launching a clothing line later this year.

In a statement, Brad Bessey, executive producer of The Talk says:

"We think the world of Marissa as a creative talent, on-air personality and super mom. This is a mutual decision based on time, not talent.

The show is trending toward more time with panel conversations and interviews, creating fewer opportunities for the mom-on-the-street segments. We are grateful beyond words to Marissa for her hard work, unrivaled energy and enthusiasm; and the integral role she played in the successful launch of The Talk. We wish her the very best."

It still sounds like the producers just couldn't find a spot for her on the show and decided to let her go. From the beginning, her weekly segments seemed out of place and she was always separated from the rest of the women, so this really doesn't come as a shock.

However, we wish her the best and hope she finds luck in all her upcoming endeavors!

    First! They never used her anyway. Get rid of Osbourne and Sarah too



  2. 2

    who cares?



  3. 3

    She has a Tony award… wtf? Why get rid of her?



  4. 4

    Ive watched the show a handful of times and don't ever even remember seeing her. Six panelists is too much anyway.



  5. 5

    I like her, and her blog is good, too. Not sure why they didn't make it work out for her.



  6. 6

    BS. They can make room for her if they wanted to. Its easy, just make room for her! Its not hard. Basically, they didn't want her so they got rid of her. Fucked up.



  7. 7

    She just lost her father over the holidays. I would imagine this also affected her enthusiasm to continue with the show (especially when they didn't even have her on set!).

    If you are not a Mom yourself there is really no reason to watch the show. In fact it made me feel as though it's not normal to not have kids. I thought it was going to be an intersting multi subject chat show and really it's just about being a Mom and how they handle it.



  9. 9

    She would have been the one that I would have kept. They don't need Osborne and Leah Remini. Although, I like those two people, they truly don't fit.

    Should've kept her and got rid of the annoying ass king of queens lady



  11. 11

    They have special segments every day so they still could have used her. Having her separate from the others is what killed it. They never felt like a whole.

    Re: Smuterella – Really!! I can't stand her loud mouth. I never liked her on Saved By the Bell or King of Queens and she's constantly bragging about being friends w/ J-Lo, nobody cares STFU!!



  13. 13

    Marissa was the only one worth watching/listening to. The rest, especially Leah Rimini, never listen and refuse to shut the fuck up.

    Not for nothing, but having never watched this… that lineup looks like the ear-screechingest bunch of wenches I've ever seen. I can't even imagine how annoying that is to watch. Good for MJW - run, baby, run!
