After weeks of rumors surrounding the fact that the actress' contract for the show -- along with co-star Holly Robinson Peete's -- had not been renewed, Remini confirmed the news Thursday on her Twitter account. "It is official: I am sorry to say that I have NOT been asked back on the show. Sorry to my fans. U worked so hard! I adore u guys," she tweeted. "No reason was given," she replied later.
As for Peete, the actress confirmed on Twitter that she has still not officially heard whether she is staying on the show or not. Peete responded to Remini's news Thursday night, saying "Devastated by the news that @LeahRemini was not asked back to @TheTalk_CBS. She brought humor, heart and authenticity."
Meanwhile, CBS is reportedly set to announce that Kardashian mom Kris Jenner will take on a recurring co-host role on the daytime talk show dedicated to mothers and parenting issues, while Sheryl Underwood will join the panel full-time.
Sharon Osbourne, who confirmed that she's taking on a reduced role on the show this season, told AOL TV last week about the rumors of Remini and Peete leaving, "I'm saddened to think that it could be [true], but it's not confirmed. I don't know. I'm just a little fish in the big, big pond. I'm not the producer. I don't make the decisions."
