After much speculation, Holly Robinson Peete has officially been given the boot from CBS' The Talk.
The host, who played a big role in launching the talk show, took to her blog to say her peace:
After weeks in limbo, I was finally officially given word from CBS today that I have not been picked up for the 2nd season of The Talk. While I am relieved to have this closure, it doesn’t diminish my disappointment one bit about not continuing with a show I worked very hard to launch and love dearly. But I’ve been around long enough to know that while you cannot control certain situations you CAN control how you respond to them. [I would like to thank CBS] for a tremendous opportunity to realize a long held dream of mine to host a daytime talk show,. I learned SO much and will cherish and build upon my experience. Best of all I made some friends for life. I want to thank the viewers and those who supported and rallied around me and expressed appreciation for the humor and heart I attempted to bring to the table. You lifted me!
This is so sad to read. We thought she was a delightful host and really brought something different to the table — including a puppy for Sharon Osbourne!
Ah well, Holly. As we sure you already know, when one door closes, another one opens and we can't wait to see you walk on through it.
Best of luck, girl!
