In January of 2000, Holly Robinson Peete got the news that her son had autism — a moment that would never leave her mind. She looked for a silver lining in the diagnosis, regardless of the fact that the doctor had zero bed-side manner. He just listed the things RJ would 'never' do: talk, make friends, mainstream in school, participate in organized sports, etc., before laid something far more hurtful on her. He said she would NEVER hear him say the words 'I love you' unprompted.
All of this at just 3 years old.
Now, RJ is much older. He even checked ALL of those things off his list, and more, exceeding so many expectations… and Holly is now writing about the experience! Here's a bit of what she has to say:

Such an unbelievable shame how this entire thing was handled!
Holly Robinson Peete is opening up for the first time, in detail, about being booted from the second season of The Talk, the show she helped launch last year, and although she doesn't specifically mention co-host Julie Chen, who also happens to be married CBS President and CEO Leslie Moonves, as the main factor in she and Leah Remini being replaced with Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood, she certainly alludes to it!
