Inaba, who was absent from the CBS daytime talk show on Monday, announced the news today on her Instagram and Twitter accounts. Her decision comes one month after Sharon Osbourne's The Talk exit. "I wanted to let you know personally that I have decided to take a leave of absence from The Talk to focus on my well being," Inaba said in the video. "I know you understand health is the most important thing so I appreciate your support, I appreciate the love and support from The Talk family and I hope to be back soon. Take care and I'll keep you updated, thank you." Sheryl Underwood echoed Inaba's statement during Monday's The Talk episode, saying Carrie Ann was taking a leave of absence and "appreciates the support from all of her fans and her family right here at The Talk...Carrie Ann, we miss you and we look forward to having you back with us soon." Last Friday, Inaba and fellow Talk co-host Amanda Kloots expressed support on Instagram after Osbourne lost her cat, indicating they were all still on good terms.
