This Celebrity Will Be Replacing Julie Chen On "The Talk"

It looks like CBS has finally decided who will be permanently replacing Julie Chen on “The Talk” — and it’s Carrie Ann Inaba. Sources have told Variety that Carrie has now infact closed a deal to take over Chen’s spot on the daytime talk show. She’ll officially come on board full time in January. This comes as no surprise to fans of the show, as Inaba has been of the many guest hosts on the show filling in since Julie Chen departed back in September. There was even possible talk of Rosie O’Donnell possibly filling the permanent spot, but it looks like that fell through.

Inaba will join Eve, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, and Sheryl Underwood on the official daily panel.

Thoughts on the choice?
