Since The Talk fired Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete, plenty of Leah and Holly fans are letting their voices be heard.
First up, check out details of The Talk boycott. Because it’s happening. Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete have left The Talk and so have their fans.
It’ll be interesting to see how viewer numbers take a dip.
Second, a number of Facebook pages in support of Remini and Robinson Peete have turned up, but let’s focus on the “Leah and Holly LIVE” Facebook campaign to get Leah and Holly their very own talk show.
The Talk fans are furious… and they’re doing something about it.
“Leah and Holly LIVE” is gaining fans who are outspoken in their efforts to keep Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete on the air – just not on The Talk anymore, as CBS and the show runners have failed the viewers!
Nancy Stika, who created the Facebook group, explains, “We will present this idea to AS MANY STATIONS as it takes to get a deal going for our girls! Well Leah and Holly need their OWN show! We were given the “green light” so to speak by Leah herself, via a live radio internet talk show. She not only gave us the green light, she said to “follow my heart”, so that is what I (Nancy Stika) am doing! Thanks Leah!”
I contacted Stika to find out about her campaign and she explained, “As soon as that first show of the 2nd season started, it started to pick up speed and gain momentum. It hasn’t really slowed down since.”
Stika noted that fans of her campaign are “filling out forms to send into networks to get the show idea noticed, as well as entertainment news forums to try to get the story on a national level.”
