"Everyone's Talking about it, and I'm excited to confirm it. We're welcoming Carrie Ann Inaba to The Talk table," CBS' head of daytime Angelica McDaniel said in a statement. "Carrie Ann connects with audiences by being genuine. We appreciate her warmth, heart and vulnerability, and love what she brings to the show." The Dancing with the Stars judge, who was Chen's choice to replace her, said in a statement: "Having the opportunity to sit at the table with Eve, Sara (Gilbert), Sharon (Osbourne) and Sheryl (Underwood) has been such an enriching experience and I'm honored and looking forward to joining them daily. It's the authentic conversations and connection with the audience and the ladies that really drew me to The Talk. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this show."
