Marissa Jaret Winokur Leaves The Talk
Marissa Jaret Winokur is the first victim of The Talk, CBS' attempt to copy The View, RadarOnline.com has learned.
"I will not be returning to The Talk this year," Winokur told People.
Winokur was hired to be one of six hosts on the show, with her "Mom on the Street" segments airing twice a week. But as the show evolved in the months since its premiere last fall, "there really wasn't room for my segments," the Dancing With The Stars Alum explained.

Added the show's executive producer, "This is a mutual decision based on time, not talent."
That still leaves five ladies on the crowded The Talk couch. Julie Chen, Holly Robinson Peete, Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert and Leah Remini are still chatting away on the ratings-challenged series.
