HomeTVTalk ShowsHolly Robinson Peete Discusses The Talk Abandoning Original Concept Luke Kerr November 4, 2011 3 Comments Has The Talk strayed from the concept that inspired it? In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, ousted co-host Holly Robinson Peete looks back on her time at the CBS talk show, the dismissals of herself and Leah Remini and the dismantling of The Talk’s original concept. “I feel bad for [Sara], because I think about her original concept for the show. I don’t know where that is now,” she says. “I mean the two ladies they brought on are fantastic and great TV personalities, but they’re not moms. So, I guess they abandoned the whole mom brand. That was Sara’s initial concept. I haven’t really spoken to her much since, so I don’t know what she thinks about that concept being dismantled.” 3 Responses lfad November 4, 2011 The mom concept wouldn’t have sustained itself over time any way, whether Holly and Leah were fired or not. The show was beginning to move away from the constant mom talk when Holly and Leah were still there. Log in to Reply pumpkin November 7, 2011 I found Lea totally annoying. Also I don’t see Sharon O as the wise one which seems to be her role on this show. Huh! Sara seems uncomfortable still and the Julie C is still so robotic. I think the mommy talk is stupid anyway. The new one is OK but most of the originals are still there so it is not like I have to see it.
