Was Marie Osmond ousted by the cast of 'The Talk'? Peek behind the scenes and see what Osmond's cast members really thought of her.

Did the cast of ‘The Talk’ force Marie Osmond to quit?

Marie Osmond’s unexpected departure from The Talk might not have been as innocent as we previously heard. Osmond originally became a co-host for The Talk in 2019 as a replacement for Sara Gilbert, who revealed she was leaving to be with her family and to focus on The Connors

After only one season of co-hosting the daytime talk show, Osmond announced she would be leaving The Talk shortly before the season eleven premiere. This announcement came in the midst of on-air arguments with co-hosts and behind-the-scenes animosity recently revealed by some CBS insiders.

While the rumors haven’t been corroborated, some fans took their concerns about Osmond online, even calling for The Talk’s cancellation following Osmond’s quick departure. Here’s what we know about Marie Osmond’s relationship with her former co-hosts and what she’s up to now. 

Rumors of being quietly fired

A source at CBS told Page Six Sharon Osbourne & Sheryl Underwood went to CBS executives, saying they would quit if Osmond didn’t leave. The source said, “Marie did not leave of her own accord”. The source also claimed Osbourne & Underwood initially confronted Osbourne, asking her to quit. When that didn’t work, Osbourne & Underwood “made an ultimatum to the network”. 

While we don’t know what Eve thinks about the situation, the source stated Carrie Ann Inaba “pleaded with execs for Marie to stay”. Page Six stated they reached out for comment from each party, but they “refused to comment”. 

Clashing co-hosts?

Before her official departure, Osmond’s friend told The Sun she “suspected” Osmond wouldn’t get a new contract at The Talk, since “she and fans could see clear divides between the outspoken women”. 

There were a few indications of animosity between the co-hosts on the show, specifically between Osmond & Osbourne. Osbourne even received backlash for how she treated Osmond, with some fans calling for Osbourne’s departure, with many calling Osbourne “rude”, according to The Sun. The tabloid also spoke to a CBS source, saying some of the co-hosts “were not the warmest” and at times “frosty”. 

Osmond’s departure

Deadline first reported Osmond’s exit in early September, shortly before the start of The Talk’s eleventh season. CBS didn’t reveal too much in their statement, only saying they “will miss her humor, kindness, and good nature”. 

Likewise, Osmond only made a short statement on Twitter, where she thanked The Talk’s former executive producer & showrunner John Redmann, who also left during the show’s summer hiatus. Osmond will still be busy with other work, including a new show with ViacomCBS, according to Deadline, and she stated her intent to work with Redmann on other projects. 

The co-hosts of The Talk haven’t said too much about Osmond’s departure, but Sharon Osbourne told Entertainment Tonight earlier in September she believes having only four hosts means they’ve “got more time to talk”. 

Upset fans

The source who spoke to Page Six said The Talk has faced “extreme backlash” on social media, even receiving “thousands of negative comments flooding their accounts”. One fan on Instagram said the show is “not the same without Marie”. 

The Sun reported multiple fans voicing their concerns on The Talk’s Facebook page, with one fan saying they “weren’t impressed at all” by the show’s new format. Others said the show “should be taken off TV” and have called Osmond’s surprising farewell “unfair”.

 

Where is Marie Osmond now?

According to The Sun, Osmond hasn’t been watching the new season of The Talk, with a friend saying Osmond “has made a conscious effort to forget and move on”. As of right now, The Talk is the “last thing on her mind” and she’s currently on a road trip with her husband Stephen Craig.

  • When I do turn this show on I give it 5 minutes before it GOES OFF. You’re all right! Marie was way too classy for this show . As far as Cheryl,,, GO off and retire somewhere. We don’t care about all of your sexual needs and everyone listen closely— Cheryl really has nasty comments for white people in her bullying thoughts and opinions. Her and Osborne need to Exit.

    • I agree with your statement. Honestly, The show hasn’t been the same since Julie left. Sharon seems like an ass behind the scenes. And the rest put up with Cheryl’s degrading of men when she wants to manhandle them. I stopped watching when none of them seemed to want to condemn Weinstein but had no problem condemning non-Hollywood people accused of the same.

  • I started watching The Talk because of Marie. Sharon was my least favorite, as it was obvious from the beginning that she wanted nothing to do with Marie. CBS, you guys made a HUGE mistake! The death knell will be the day you hire Kelly Osborne. I’ll have to read about it, since you lost me as a viewer when Marie left the show.

    • I think Sheryl Underwood has to go! Get her out of there! Bring Marie back and Bridgette Neilson … or Carne Wilson.,

      December 13, 2020
  • Sad that The Talk has just turned in to The View. Both nasty, crude, trash. What a shame. The Talk used to be fun. Never will watch again.

  • Sharon is the “Talk”! Sheryl is transparent with heartfelt compassion! To each his/her own. Best of everything Marie along with, anyone/everyone that once co-hosted the TALK. I love the Show…

    November 16, 2020
    • Like the View much better. The talk is all about looks and selling products. Watch Sharon’s lips!

  • Cheryl Underwood professes to be a Christian, but she is the crudest and most vulgar person on tv. She is setting the WRONG example, especially for new “baby Christians”! She needs to get her life in order, in my opinion. I won’t be watching The Talk anymore. Since Marie left the show, there is no more “ray of sunshine” left…..

  • Cheryl is a crude fake Christian and Sharon is just a cranky old women. Bye now!

    November 24, 2020
  • They need to cancel the talk. That sharon osborn is a miserable old bag. Sheryl Underwood is nothing but fat old miserable woman. Cancel that negative show. Marie Osmond was the only reason I watched it!!

  • Marie had a number of “slip ups” during her time on The Talk. She made comments about Cheryl and Eve being “Smart”, a common thing for a racist white person to say, as if that was an exception to what one would expect, and made a reference to her adopted daughter, as when she decided to “go gay”, not the best way to describe her coming out. In all fairness, Marie was raised Mormon and probably was raised with narrow views about minorities and alternate lifestyles, which is why I was surprised that she was ever selected to join the show where the hosts were liberal in their views, There was also a lot of backlash in the past, when her adopted son committed suicide, and shortly after she resumed her Vegas show. People grieve in different ways but the fact that there were rumors that he was gay and having issues with that, made appear insensitive. Also, for someone who adopted so many children, she seemed more interested in doing her shows to make as much money as possible, instead of wanting to spend time with those children, many of whom ended up in rehab and seemed troubled. And I do remember the episode where she said her children weren’t getting her money when she passed, but instead her charities will get it. I remember just not understanding why, weren’t they deserving enough? She and Cheryl seemed to like each other first, but I noticed a change as time went on. At any rate there had to have been complaints, for them to have let her go.

  • Marie brought some class to this show!! They were jealous of her because of her accomplishments. Cheryl Underwood is the one who needs to go with all of her crass sexual comments!! She is disgusting!! Marie you’re much better off not having to associate with such low class individuals!!

    December 4, 2020
  • I was afraid that Marie would be too Goody Goody, But she wasn’t. She was a nice balance to the crass Sharon Osborne. I really didn’t watch the show before Marie because I can’t stand Sharon Osborne. With Marie on and Eve it gave a nice balance. Now both of them are gone/going. I love Carrie Ann Inaba. I think she is a class at.
    If I was the producer my attitude would be, fire the 2 trouble makers. This shows the weakness of the producers. I say send Sharon back to England.

    • I adore Sharon Osbourne. She at least says what she thinks with intelligence and not some silly pretense of being a great upright Christian which generally hides some greater flaw.

      January 4, 2021
  • Sharon Osborne definitely needs to be gone!!! She is an old has been with a terrible attitude !!! It was obvious that she was envious of Marie!!! Since Marie has not been on the show .. I have quit watching. Marie brought “class” and morals to the discussion of the topics. Now it is all the same bla bla bla. I more important things to do like watch paint dry !!!!

    December 26, 2020
  • Wow How did cowards get to keep their jobs after letting Marie go. I guess all they needed was a grammar school
    education. Im a man who doesnt watch these kind of programs, but my wife did and asked me to join her. I found Marie to be one of the most talented lovely person on tv .Sharon & cherl only talent is backstabbing , wow you guys are great at recognizing talent. We are no longer watching the show.

    December 29, 2020
  • It’s nothing but a gossip show. I’m glad Marie quit she was too classy for Sharon and Sheryl!! I don’t watch it anymore.

  • I SUSPECTED THAT SHARON DID NOT LIKE MARIE FROM THE START. HER BODY LANGUAGE EVEN WHEN THEY WERE IN THEIR OWN HOMES SHOWED WHEN MARIE SAID SOMETHING. SHARON OSBORNE IS A SNOT AND WILL BE NICE ONLY TO THE PEOPLE THAT KISSES UP TO HER. THERE OBVIOUSLY IS SOME DYSFUNCTION IN THE OSBORNE FAMILY BUT I GUESS WE MUST ADMIRE THEM FOR STICKING TOGETHER. MEANWHILE, MARIE CAME FROM A HUGE, LOVING FAMILY SO THAT IS WHAT SHE PRACTICES. THE ONLY PROBLEM THAT I HAVE WITH MARIE AND SHE HAS TO LIVE WITH IS THAT SHE WAS ON STAGE WHEN HER ADOPTED SON CALLED AND HE DIDN’T STOP THE SHOW AND LET DONNY CONTINUE BY HIMSELF AND ANSWER HER SONS CALL AND SHORTLY AFTER HE COMMITTED SUICIDE. SHE HAS TO LIVE WITH THAT. GARNELLA TOMICH.

    • I think Marie’s family was pretty dysfunctional speaking of dysfunctional. Have nothing against her but she was never right for that show. Maybe as a guest host occasionally. Carnie Wilson was good.. Sharon Osbourne is adorable and bright and honest

      January 4, 2021
  • GET RID OF SHARON OSBOURNE. WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS. MARIE OSMIND IS MUCH BETTER. SHARON IS JEALOUS PEOPLE LIKE MARIE MUCH BETTER THAN SHARIN. JEALOUSLY IS A B—- h

  • So what, people clash all the time. Each lady has their own personality and I love them all. It’s sad to see Marie leave, but I’ve been watching since Aisha was on. Sherly is a comedian and it shows in her conversations. She means no harm and has a huge heart. She’s not here for your approval. Sharon is just as sweet. Marie was only on for a short time. Eve is gone now also. This opens the door for other ladies to join and they may not all mesh, so what! Grow up! If you don’t like it then find something else to watch. It’s always sad to see any of the ladies leave and I just wish them all the best! I will continue to watch my favorite show!

    January 4, 2021
  • Marie is a Boring goody two shoe. Too boring for a talk show. So was Eve!! Eve could barely express herself. The original case was the best ever. They all were different and none were boring and it WORKED. I hope they find that good mix of females again. If Sharon and Cheryl leave it’s the end of the show. Carrie Ann is doing a wonderful job, now let’s find 2 more

    February 3, 2021
  • I do not really watch the Talk anymore , no longer interesting , they should have hired Carne Wilson a long time ago , the Talk needs someone down to earth , not phony , someone that is relatable to everyone , I believe the show should be cancelled !!! I found that the women on the Talk really have double standards when it comes to relationship advice for others , you know which women I am talking about

    February 8, 2021
  • I don’t think Marie Osman was right for this type of show! I agree, she was good as an occasional guess co-host, but not permanent!
    Not enough real life experience to talk to the audience!
    My choice would be Carie Wilson; she was an amazing asset to this team of ladies!

    • Give me a break to all you Cheryl haters, so she makes sexual jokes and says stuff that you know most of you stuffy windbags are thinking. If all the women were the same it would be boring. Now personally I can’t stand that snobby old, trash talking old goat Sharon, but the old bat keeps it interesting and I think she’s a riot. You gotta have a “Sharon” in every bunch because all friends have a “Sharon” in their group. Cheryl keeps it real and yeah she says stuff that makes me think “oh hell no she did not just say that”, but I’m also laughing when I think that. Unlike some of these phony co hosts out there that are so fake, she is real and her tears are real and she speaks from the heart and for having dirty mind and making her little sex comments, she’s also got more class and tact than alot of people and she proved that the way she handled herself with Sharon. So stop with all your opinionated comments (and no I’m not black, just in case thats what all you trash talkers are thinking, but every one of you that made your messed up comments I bet everyone of you windbags are white huh?)

  • The whole show is another The View…Trash…Marie is the lucky one…

    March 1, 2021
  • Sharon O. Is so two faced, she is saying let’s listen to other people and respect what they are saying, but she told some people they were no longer welcome in her home because they didn’t agree with her political point of view, so as long as you agree with HER POINT OF VIEW , she respect s you, she is a total bully and she got Marie fired, stopped watching don’t like bullying anyone

    March 2, 2021
  • Getting Marie fired was the nail in the coffin for Sharon Osborn. Pay back is hell. I don’t watch The Talk anymore. It is becoming the View. I think the show has run its course.

    March 17, 2021
  • I think Jerry McConnell will be a tremendous boost to the show. In my opinion Sheryl needs to go .?I think she has done some back handed stuff to people on the show to get them out. It is not the Sheryl Underwood shows . I think she is very crude and crass, she is not funny!

    May 19, 2021
  • Sheryl whatever on The Talk is the one who is racist – don’t know if Osborne is or not but for sure Sheryl is… she is also loud mouthed, thinks she is funny, knows everything, fake as hell, etc., etc. , my question is how the hell is she the one left running the show when the only ones who made it a somewhat tolerable show are all gone!!! Take The Talk off the air, it has run its course…
