Julie Chen may no longer be married to the president of CBS, but the former Talk co-host got her wish when it came to her replacement on the network’s long-running daytime chatfest. On the heels of the official announcement that Carrie Ann Inaba will be Julie Chen’s permanent replacement on The Talk, the Dancing With the Stars judge told Entertainment Tonight she has received plenty of love and support from the former co-host of the Emmy winning show.
“Julie has been exceptionally loving,” Inaba told ET following her first day as a permanent co-host on The Talk. “I have so much respect for her.”
Carrie Ann Inaba also revealed that Julie Chen sent her a special gift when the official announcement of her new role on the show was made.
