In addition, she also starred in the original Lifetime movie Matters of Life & Dating for which she was nominated for an NAACP Image Award.

She also has a recurring role on hit comedy series Mike & Molly which came shortly after successfully launching the show The Talk as one of the original co-hosts. The Talk came on the heels of the enormous success Robinson Peete had on the third season of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice. Making it all the way to the finals, Robinson Peete set a fundraising record for her charity, HollyRod Foundation highlighting her philanthropic prowess and shedding a national spotlight on two causes very personal to the Peete Family: autism and Parkinson’s disease.
