“I noticed a lot of you are asking about The Talk, if I’m coming back and what’s happening there,” Inaba said in another series of videos.  “I should have some news soon about what’s going on with my future at The Talk.”

She also congratulated Jerry O’Connell, who was announced Wednesday as the show’s permanent new co-host, joining Sheryl UnderwoodAmanda Kloots and Elaine Welteroth.
