It was so nice to get out of the house and change up our routine. living with so much less… and spending time – quality time with each other. We also tend to think that we don’t have time to take off, but can I tell you that I was more creative in my writing in those two days than I have been in a while.”

Carrie Ann also writes, “It just poured out of me… so for my creative friends out there, try a change of scenery… sometimes it gives you a creative spark…. In addition to the much needed dose of wellness.”

I’m on the road to recovery and I’m extremely grateful.”

The Talk’s Renewal Following Co-Host Controversy

The Talk was recently renewed for its twelfth season earlier this month, but the show has had some recent bumps. In March 2021, original co-host of The Talk Sharon Osbourne officially exited the show after Osbourne and the other co-hosts, including Carrie Ann Inaba, had a heated conversation about Piers Morgan’s comments about Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah. Osbourne notably sided with Morgan. 

Shortly after the incident, Sharon discussed the situation Entertainment Weekly by stating, “I am not a racist and if you can’t have a go at your friend who happens to be Black, does that make me racist because I said certain things to my friend, but I said them on camera? I will keep on apologizing to Sheryl, even if I decide not to go back.”

There has been yet any news about Osbourne’s replacement.
