Holly Robinson-Peete Dropped From CBS's "The Talk"

Does anyone out there watch CBS's daytime talk show The Talk? Any of you out there? Blatantly inspired (or more like stolen) from ABC network's The View, the show which features women celebrities dishing dirt has actually been a strong ratings-puller for the network.

However the show, which is about to enter its second season soon, will be making some changes. Co-hosts Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and Julie Chen will stay on the show, but Leah Remini and Holly Robinson-Peete reportedly did not have their options picked up, and will be replaced by new co-hosts.

No word as to why Peete and Remini have been dropped from the show, but since Gilbert is its co-creator, Sharon is married to Ozzy, and Chen is married to the head of CBS programming Les Moonves (which means she'll ALWAYS have a job at CBS), Remini and Peete were expendable.

And that proves the lesson for the day: to stay on top in the TV business, you have to be the creative force behind the scenes, married to (or be willing to have sex with) the boss, or be married to a burned out rock star and speak with a British accent (I guess...).

No word yet as to whether the avocados will stay on the show as well!
