On September 2nd, word hit the web, via Holly Robinson Peete’s personal blog, that she had been booted from the daytime talk show “The Talk.” And this was after there had already been weeks of speculation and rumors. However, the speculation is not over, as Holly still has not been given a reason why she terminated after only one season.
Holly explained to E!:
“I’ve been around long enough in this business to know that sometimes you don’t get a reason. You just pick up and keep moving…”
And move on she did. She was spotted at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the L.A. Watts Labor Community Action Committee Center, one of her various charities. The building is reopening after undergoing a $50,000 renovation thanks to the Maxwell House Drops of Good Program. She is also exploring more options and explains:
“I feel like daytime TV is a sweet spot for me. I liked live TV, and I didn’t know I could do it until this year. I’m looking forward to testing out new stuff, maybe some scripted opportunities.”
For now, Holly’s fans can look forward to seeing her in a short role in the upcoming movie 21 Jump Street featuring Johnny Depp, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. Check out the footage from her interview.
