The news of Home & Family’s co-host Mark Steines’ sudden departure has shocked the fans to say the least.

On Friday’s show, Mark was absent while Debbie Matenopoulos carried out the entire 2-hour daytime show herself as the sole host.

The show went on like usual with family members present working on their segments for crafts, cooking, etc.

Debbie was front and center as she tearfully acknowledged the departure of her dear friend and former co-host Mark Steines.  She said he will “no longer be with the show” and added that he surely “left his imprint and will be missed.

The rest of the family members were quiet and solemn as the show ended.

There is still no word of a reason behind the sudden change in the cast.
