On the heels of Leah Remini's Talk dismissal announcement, Robinson Peete made one of her own Friday via her blog.

"After weeks in limbo, I was finally 'officially' given word from CBS today that I have not been picked up for the 2nd season of The TALK," Robinson Peete wrote. "I realize there have been several reports and 'leaks' for sometime to this effect but until today I was not contractually released which prevented me from moving on and finding other work."

But that wasn't all.

"While I am relieved to have this closure, it doesn't diminish my disappointment one bit about not continuing with a show I worked very hard to launch and love dearly.  But I've been around long enough to know that while you cannot control certain situations you CAN control how you respond to them. Thank you to CBS for a tremendous opportunity to realize a long held dream of mine to host a daytime talk show. I learned SO much and will cherish and build upon my experience. Best of all I made some friends for life."

The actress also made sure to thank fans for all of their support during her time on the show. 

"I want to thank The TALK viewers and those who supported and rallied around me and expressed appreciation for the humor and heart I attempted to bring to the table," Robinson Peete went on. "You lifted me! But by far, what I will miss the most: the amazing platform to spread awareness about families affected by autism and special needs. Just know that I will never stop speaking for you, and sharing your stories...EVER. Although this door has closed, I am full of excitement about the new doors that will open for me."

No word yet on which two hosts will replace Remini and Robinson Peete on the CBS daytime show, but we wish them both the best.
