On Monday, June 20, original co-host Holly Robinson Peete returns to “The Talk” for the first time since the show’s inaugural 2010-2011 television season. She joins the current co-hosts for a chat about her new movie, “The Journey Ahead,” which premieres in August on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries among other topics, including Juneteenth, America’s newest federal holiday.
In a preview of her appearance, Peete points out, “It has been 11 years” since she last appeared on the daytime talk show and that it felt “amazing” to be back on set. “I’ve wanted to come back for a long time, you know. Timing is everything, it’s all about timing, right? Everything in life is about timing. So, you know, [I] started here for the very first season, it was a crazy season but I feel like we did a good job in setting the table for obviously a show, and I heard you guys just got picked up for [season] 13. So, I’m just happy to be back.”
This year the show will celebrate Juneteenth, which the actress notes, “I grew up with Juneteenth, we had fish fries every year, it was a whole thing, so it’s funny to see like the world celebrating.”
