The news broke late Thursday night (5/30) to many viewers’ dismay. It was sudden and abrupt to say the least, and left fans wondering “what happened?”
On Friday’s show, his co-host Debbie Matenopoulos remarked that taping was especially difficult that day because they had a very hard announcement to make, being that Steines won’t be returning to host alongside of her.
You could feel the emotion and upset from her as the cast is also trying to take in the news of the sudden exit.
We have not heard from Mark until now when he broke his silence on social media.
Today happens to be Mark’s birthday, June 7th and he posted a photo of himself thanking everyone for the amazing wishes and support.
Thank you for the birthday wishes. The outpouring of love & kindness this past week has been incredible.”
In his photo he looks strong and resilient while holding a Superman mug. Looks like this Clark Kent is about to go full Superman and we can only imagine the amazing opportunities ahead of such fantastic talent.
We are so happy to hear from Mark again and want to wish him a very special Happy Birthday from Feeling the Vibe Magazine!
His “Home & Family” family members also left their messages to this “incredible man” as Orly says.
“This man ❤
He’s a leader and a friend.
He’s a goofball and a stud.
He’s proof that there are truly good men in this business and I’ll miss working with him daily!
Love ya Mark! BBQ’s at your house this summer!.. K thanks byeeee ?”
Kenneth Wingard who has been working with Mark for the past 6 years posted a “behind the scenes” rehearsal shot of the pair.
“Sometimes you get to work with someone who is inspirational or a great leader or a friend or funny as all get out. Rarely in life do you get to work with someone who is all of those things. @marksteines, the past 6 years have been an honor and a privilege. I look forward to many more years as friends,” said Wingard on Instagram.
