Holly Robinson Peete returns to "The Talk" for the first time since appearing as an original host during the shows inaugural season in 2010 "It has been 11 years," she says. "It feels amazing. I've wanted to come back for a long time, you know. Timing is everything, it's all about in timing, right? Everything in life is about timing. So, you know, started here for the very first season, it was a crazy season but I feel like we did good job in setting the table for obviously a good show, and I heard you guys just got picked up for 13. So, I'm just happy to be back, I'm the OG." Akbar Gbajabiamila adds, "On a personal note, when I got the job for 'The Talk,' you were the first person I called, and you just gave me so many encouraging words...so thank you." Peete reacts, "You know you're my guy. We've known each other a long time, Jerry and I go way back, and Nat and I know each other, and we've never met [Kloots], and Sheryl and I go back too, so it felt right. I'm glad to be back." In celebration of Juneteenth today, she adds, "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."
