Hit CBS show ‘The Talk’ has lost yet another host in just two weeks. Coming on the heels of Carrie Ann Inaba’s departure from the daytime show, former Teen Vogue editor Eliane has followed suit.
It’s been barely a year since she joined the team, now she leaves just after one season.
She leaves behind longest-serving members Sheryl Underwood, Amanda Kloots, and Jerry O’Connell.
“It is an absolute honor for anyone, but especially a young Black woman, to occupy space on-air where our perspectives are largely underrepresented,” said Welteroth. “It was gratifying to be able to show up as my authentic self in front of a live national audience every day in a world as divided as ours and to stay true to myself and what I stand for.
“I came to The Talk to break out of my own echo chamber and to join a diverse cast in helping to bridge some of the divides in our world through conversation and empathy. I’m proud of how I represented myself and my community. But as I always say: When the music changes, so must your dance! I will miss my talented co-hosts and crew and I wish them the very best. Thanks to all those who tuned in every day. I’m excited to continue these necessary conversations in my work and to share my upcoming creative projects soon.”
“We wish Elaine all the best. We are grateful for her passion, enthusiasm, and insight she brought to the show daily. Her openness and meaningful conversations were attributes we admired and always appreciated.” The Talk executive producers Heather Gray and Kristin Matthews said.
The Talk has had hosts such as Eve, Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete, and Sharon Osbourne who exited in March following a controversy involving a heated on-air defense of her friend Piers Morgan, who had come out against Meghan Markle, worst still after her explosive interview with Oprah. Morgan was accused of racist comments, and Osbourne jumped to his defense.
CBS looks towards at least a replacement in two weeks.
