"I wanted to let you know personally that I have decided to take a leave of absence from The Talk to focus on my well being," she said in the video. "I know you understand health is the most important thing so I appreciate your support, I appreciate the love and support from The Talk family and I hope to be back soon. Take care and I'll keep you updated, thank you."
Sheryl Underwood echoed Inaba's statement during the episode itself, saying Carrie Ann was taking a leave of absence and "appreciates the support from all of her fans and her family right here at The Talk."
She added, "Carrie Ann, we miss you and we look forward to having you back with us soon." Cohosts Amanda Kloots and Elaine Welteroth also sent their love.
Inaba's temporary departure comes after Sharon Osbourne left the show following a racial discussion about Piers Morgan.
