Carrie Ann Inaba is currently on leave from the CBS talk show, The Talk. The co-host and the current show’s moderator announced her break in April 2021 to focus on her well-being in a video that she shared on her social media accounts. The talk show host has revealed to fans in the past that she suffers from multiple different conditions, which include fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and Sjogren’s syndrome. Inaba also did reveal she has lupus and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

Carrie Ann Hints Plans To Return To The Talk

Although there hasn’t been an official announcement, Carrie Ann Inaba recently hinted about her plans to return to The Talk. “As you all know, I’m on a leave of absence from @thetalkcbs. And I want you all to know I’m doing great!” Carrie declared in an Instagram post earlier this month. “I’m working with top experts in their fields to get even healthier than I was before.” 

Carrie Ann Inaba then notes in a later Instagram Story, “Basically, since the pandemic hit, I have been in extreme pain. I’m on the road to recovery, and I’m extremely grateful.”

When asked about her return to the show, Carrie Ann Inaba declared she doesn’t quite know when she was going to come back to the talk show’s panel. “I’m so grateful The Talk has given me this time to take care of myself and be on this incredible healing journey,” Inaba observed in early June. “We are probably going to sit down and have some discussions about what the future is and when I go back, maybe the end of this month… I do miss everybody at The Talk, and I look forward to be able to do what I love to do when the time is right.”

Carrie Ann Celebrates The Talk Renewal

Meanwhile, Carrie Ann Inaba celebrated The Talk being renewed for its 12th season. “[The Talk] has been renewed for another season! Congratulations to everyone who works on the show!” Inaba wrote in an Instagram post a couple of weeks ago. “12 Seasons is incredible…. All the people you don’t see behind the scenes…. It’s a huge family that makes this show go! The hard work, the love, the kindness, the artistry, the multitude of skills it takes [to] create a daily show.”

Inaba goes on to add, “I’m always amazed and impressed with how this show works. Congratulations to everyone who works on the show!”
