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.

  • This happens to women who are extremely talented and have beauty on top of that all the time. It’s so unfortunate that other women are so jealous that they behave this way. I noticed immediately that she wasn’t on the show any longer and I won’t be watching anymore either. Katie Lee is too high classed to join this group, but I loved the message she sent. I only hope their tiny brains were smart enough to get it.

    October 6, 2020
    • Yes I so agree with you, I won’t watch it anymore…

      November 12, 2020
  • I have not watched the show since they got rid of Holly and Leah. Sharon Osbourne was a backstabber then and overestimates her self worth. I do not like her, I have never liked her. She and Cheryl both need to be replaced. And for gods sake‘s, don’t bring Kelly Osbourne in there. Maybe if they had some hosts with a valuable opinion or even values, that would help the show. Glad Gilbert is gone too. Carry Anne could carry that show her self.

    October 7, 2020
    • I think that Sharon and Sheryl and bullies. They always have been. When either one of them speak, they come off as so uneducated and mean girls. Marie is going to be better off without having to defend herself against these women.

      November 2, 2020
      • I’m sad that she’s gone too, but grateful she’s found more time with her family….I agree she has so much talent, I’m assuming that’s why she was treated so mean…. I’m not sure why Underwood and Osborne are even in the show, I could do a better job!!!!😂😂😂😂😂

        November 12, 2020
  • I agree with Joyce Jones I will no longer watch the talk. I had notice Sharon’s rudeness towards Maria sometime ago. And Cheryl you profess christianity, maybe you ought to practice it instead of talking it.

    October 7, 2020
  • Kay I quite agree with you that was not nice.As grown women they sure did’t act with love n kindness towards Marie it’s a shame,However I guess they learn nothing from Marie she is well rounded n very classy talented n very poised .And ask for me I would not be watching the show anymore

    October 8, 2020
  • The CBS execs made a huge mistake. They should have told Osbourne and Underwood to “take a hike”. I’ve watched my last episode until those two are gone!

    October 9, 2020
    • I am so with you!!!!😂😂😂😂👍🏼

      November 12, 2020
  • I could tell last year on Marie’s birthday that Sharon was extremely jealous of the whole family and the talent. I have only watched the show a couple of times. I really dislike Dhsrpn and sm shocked that Sheryl wanted Marie fired too. She hing all over Donny the hypocriye. Shson dhoulf leave the show because then the show will be betyrr and leave more time for three hosts or at least deprove her of boring the audience with her irrelevance.

    October 11, 2020
  • No one is gonna watch the talk now with Marie gone – big mistake cbs! – this show should be replace with the talk with Marie Osmond if not on cbs another network needs to do it and put it up agains the talk – forget the other 4 … Marie was the show – Sharon time for her to retire who cares what she has to say anyways! She is the one they should have axed. The talk will be gone now as no one will watch it without Marie – big big huge mistake cbs !!!!

    October 18, 2020
  • I thought bringing Marie Osmond to The Talk was a very smart move. It utterly makes me sick that Sharon and Sheryl, who btw I’ve always admired UNTIL NOW, treated Marie this way. Marie brought so much class to the show… Too bad cbs, I’m no longer watching and supporting The Talk.
    To Marie, I wish you the very best. You’re better off away from these backstabbing people. You are a winner Marie and your star still shines as theirs have become blackened in my eyes …

    October 19, 2020
  • I agree with the comments made already and, – who in the world made Sharon Osbourne an authority on every subject they discuss. Cheryl is always talking about God, etc. and in the same breath she is submitting to having sex with just about anyone. Eve is so busy fooling with her hair that I’m not sure she even knows what’s going on. Carrie Ann does a great job trying to keep things under control on the show. I was unable to watch for a time, but when I did watch and saw the absence of Marie I couldn’t figure out what happened to her. Now that I know, I have better things to do than to watch a bunch of catty, spiteful women tear others apart. That’s why I don’t watch ‘The View’ either.

    October 19, 2020
    • I agree Eve always playing with her hair and not very interesting

      October 21, 2020
    • Carolyn, I agree 100%!!

      November 10, 2020
    • I agree to Carolyn, ….with everything you said…. maybe the talk will be off the air soon!!! Let’s hope!!!!!!😂😂😂😂I’m not watching anymore either!!!!!!

      November 12, 2020
  • I think forcing Marie Osmond out was a big mistake. She brought class and intelligence to the set. She also comes from a multi-talented family, which is more than I can say for most of the others! I won’t be watching the show anymore. Perhaps the producers need to look into the jealousy of some of the others on the show and tell them to shape up or ship out!

    October 19, 2020
  • Marie just didn’t fit in. I stopped watching, but now she is gone, I may just start watching again.

    October 19, 2020
    • DON’T BE A HATER (HEATHER) MARIE WAS THE BEST ONE THAT MADE SINCE ON THE TALK!!! I AM DONE WITH WATCHING THE TALK!!!

      November 3, 2020
    • I totally agree with you. I liked the show a whole lot more before Marie. I don’t know the reason except the fact she seems far more mature then the rest of them. She didn’t fit.

      November 12, 2020
  • I haven’t been happy with Sharon Osborne and Sheryl Underwood for a long time. I don’t feel they bring anything to the show. Although I’m not big fan of Marie Osmond, I think the way the two woman treated Osmond was awful. I think the problem was these three women’s egos are two big. They need to get rid of Sharon and Sheryl. The other two ladies could do a great job without them.

    October 21, 2020
    • Get rid of Sharon and Sheryl. They are big mouthed and have no class. I have stopped watching and recording the show

      October 23, 2020
  • I really enjoyed the show a lot more after Marie came onboard. She brought a breath of fresh air, joy, and honesty to the table. I sure liked her a lot more than Sara. Sharon and Cheryl should be removed. I am never watching again until those two are gone. Carrie Ann is the only good one left. CBS best take note!

    October 21, 2020
  • We agree with all the previous comments. I absolutely loved watching Marie, each day and hearing her points of view. It definitely is not the same anymore without her. When some women get power they forget how to behave, I am directing this comment to Sharon.

    October 22, 2020
  • I believe Marie was Absolutely wonderful!
    Sharon and Sheryl are not at all interning to watch. Cheryl a filthy mouth woman who professes Christianity. Where are the fruit of her being a Christian? Sharon she’s just Ozzy’s wife, manager, what ever.

    October 22, 2020
  • I did not notice Marie’s absence until today. I can’t say that I found her to be very interesting. I never felt that she bonded with the others, except perhaps lightly with Eve. I think it best that she left the show. Please do not ever have Brigette Nielson fill in ever again. I was very happy to see Melissa Gilbert on the show, and hoped she might be there for more than one show.But, she might have been, as I can only watch 3 days a week at the most. But, I have my phone alarm set for The Talk the other 3 days.

    October 22, 2020
  • Since The Talk spouts this is “the year of the woman”, why do they trash them? Marie was too goody goody for them. I think Sharon would excel on The View with the other female dogs in heat.

    October 23, 2020
  • Cheryl and Sharon over a legend like Marie ??? Threatened much ….. Marie is far better and talented that either of them. Good riddance…. Marie is far better than those two ladies … Carrie and Marie could do the show on their own!!!

    October 26, 2020
  • Get rid of Sharon Osbourne and then I will continue to watch The Talk again. I can’t stand to look at her. She is a very mean and viscous women. Missing Marie Osmond

    October 27, 2020
  • Why does this not surprise me? Threatening someone’s termination or you’ll walk is a sign that you yourself are threatened. Why someone who is nice and a bit goody goody is threatening? Sounds like some soul-searching is in order. Just about having to work with someone you don’t like? We all have to work with someone we don’t like. It’s called being a grownup.

    October 27, 2020
    • Thanks Ellie for your comments, I so agree with them, we all have to work with people we don’t like, but that’s life so they need to grow up, I sure wish CBS would fire Osborne and Underwood and ask Marie to come back for twice the pay!!!! Those three could run the show by themselves!!!!! 😂😂😂😂

      November 12, 2020
  • Sharon Osbourne is Ozzy’s wife, otherwise she would not be known. She is such a phony. Cheryl is a loud mouthed woman who is always talking about having sex with anyone and then states she is such a good Christian. The real Christian and decent lady on the show, Marie, was unfortunately let go due to the jealously of these other two. Other than Carrie, the show is now a big flop. Sorry Marie, you will be missed and I wish you and your husband a lot of love and happiness.

    October 29, 2020
    • I totally agree. I saw it from the beginning. They wouldn’t let her talk. Cheryl is so full of herself and a hypocrite. Sharon? I agree with every negative thing written about her. Can’t stand it when her daughter is on the show, so hopefully, she won’t take a permanent seat, although I have stopped watching it.

      November 3, 2020
  • Hated to see Marie gone I wish her well I wouldn’t be on that show either they all are so self centered people Not watching anymore CBS

    October 29, 2020
    • So sad that the green eyed monster reared its ugly head in regard to Sharon Osborne and the other”harpy”.Shame on both of you!If you cant stand the heat -stay out of the kitchen!

      November 1, 2020
  • Wow!!! I really miss Marie

    October 29, 2020
  • Show is not the same with Marie gone.
    I will not waste my time watching the show with all the leftover back stabbers and two faced bimbos!
    Will not leave email or name , don’t want to receive all your bullshit.joe

    October 30, 2020
  • I agree, Marie Osmond was a breath of fresh air. She was honest and open about the topics. I was curious why she left the show. It’s unfortunate that some of the women were jealous of her and she is no longer on “The Talk“. Marie will be missed.

    October 30, 2020
  • Sara Gilbert is the executive producer of the show by the way for the idiot above who said they’re glad to see her go.

    October 30, 2020
  • I also am disappointed in Marie suddenly being let go from “The Talk”. I loved her honesty talking about her family and family problems which hit home to her audience. I learned a lot from her being there. I no longer watch the show because of the two co-hosts that were responsible for her departure, such a sad thing when jealousy enters the picture. Marie was a Superstar and the other two were nobodies.

    October 31, 2020
    • I will watch the show as long as I find it worth watching..it is sad to see host leave but there are 5 sides to this story and that are all from the prospective of the person telling it…love them all..I do like Sharon and Cheryl is a comedian so she is entertaining in her own way….just saying..Have a great day.

      November 10, 2020
  • I have also stopped watching The Talk once Marie left the show. I noticed they hardly let her speak, and that the other women were always talking over each other. Sharon gets on my nerves as she is one of the cattiest, least talented woman on that show. I always loved when Marie did get to speak because she spoke with intelligence and class. Also, for those who claim she is not interesting or too goody goody, I disagree. I always enjoyed hearing about her life and her point of view. I think she is so gracious. She has also experienced a lot of hardships in her personal life and is extremely relatable. Btw, she was a great talk show host when she had her own talk show as well as when she co-hosted a talk show with her brother years ago.

    October 31, 2020
  • If it is true Sharon and Sheryl got Marie fired-🙈. As far as Sharon’s daughter on the show-nothing against daughter just feel it is nepotism and inappropriate. If Sharon or Sheryl are guilty I say it is bullying and nasty. Professionals on a talk show should be able to debate and disagree respectfully. Marie was a kind beloved addition to the show and did not lord her fame over the two.

    October 31, 2020
  • Just heard Eve is leaving the show. what is she going to do with her hands now? She made me dizzy flapping all over the place. Bye bye Eve.

    November 2, 2020
    • I have no idea who Eve is anyway. The first time I watched The Talk and she was there, I kept listening really hard, paying attention to what everyone said, and I STILL couldn’t figure out who on earth she was. I still don’t know. I do know she’s extremely boring, almost never really contributes to anything, but she does play with her hair a lot. Man, if only I could get a job like that.

      November 10, 2020
  • Sharon and Sheryl don’t have a lot going for them unfortunately. Marie has been in show business all her life and very successful. She doesn’t need The Talk. I remember when Marie made a comment about the pandemic when it first started and Sharon jumped on her like a cougar. Not classy at all. She’s buddy buddy with Sara Gilbert so I believe they put their heads together and axed her. Not interested in watching the show anymore without Marie.

    November 2, 2020
  • I thought Marie Osmond brought beauty and variety, as well as spontaneity to the show. Multifaceted. I smell jealosy.

    November 2, 2020
  • I noticed as well! I loved when Marie was on and think Sharon should and could be a lot softer, and Kelly O. really, like not Interesting either! I too agree that Sharon needs to go. Bye bye. Go home take care of Ozzy and rest.

    November 3, 2020
  • SHAME ON SHERYL AND SHARON!!!! MARIE HAS ALWAYS BEEN SOMETHING TO BEHOLD!!! MARIE DOES NOT NEED ANY OF THEM!! SHE IS SUCCESSFUL AND INTELLIGENT AND BEAUTIFUL AND SHE HAS A KIND HEART AND A BLESSED SOUL!!!!!! SHE DEFINITELY DOES NOT NEED THE TALK!!!! BAD MOVE CBS!!!!

    November 3, 2020
  • I loved Marie on the show. I don’t care for Sharon’s lack of values. Cheryl needs to really read the Bible and stop her trash talk about sex. Just my thoughts

    November 3, 2020
  • Bullies should never be rewarded, especially when they lack talent like Sharon and Cheryl. Sharon was the reason I stopped watching The Talk years ago but came back to see Marie every day. Time to turn off The Talk again. Shame! Cat fights like this only supports the stereotype that women can’t work well together.

    November 3, 2020
  • I used to like Sharon Osbourne until I watched her on the Talk. Now I am really believing that her issues with America’s Got Talent and the cast really have some truth to them. I saw many instances where she glared or made snide side comments to Marie. She ALWAYS has to be the center of attention. I agree with the others on this board that Sheryl speaks alot about faith and then talks like she is sex starved. NO class. My friends and I all agree that Marie is just too CLASSY for this show. Marie will succeed at whatever she chooses to do. She is too good for this train wreck of a show. Carrie Ann you can do better as well. I have not watched the Talk at all this season, and won’t plan on watching again.

    November 4, 2020
  • Marie was not right for that venue. Neither was Eve.

    November 4, 2020
  • Tia or Tamara (whichever one was on The Real) needs to join The Talk.

    November 4, 2020
  • I would love to see Giuliana Rancic join The Talk. I still don’t know why she was canceled for that Zendaya “Pachuli & weed” comment on Fashion Police.

    November 4, 2020
  • I can’t think of the name of the tall brunette stand-up comedian who was only on The View for one season, but she would be great on The Real. She’s funny and quick.

    November 4, 2020
  • How about Olivia Newton John?! Everyone loves her!

    November 4, 2020
    • Both The Talk and The View want opposing viewpoints so they can have controversy. That’s what makes people watch. Most of The Talk hosts are liberals and Marie isn’t so that’s the reason they hired her, for her right wing opinions. Maybe Sharon and Sheryl just don’t get it.

      November 10, 2020
  • I’m sure Brigitte is wondering why they won’t just give the gig to her since she’s guest-hosted numerous times.

    November 4, 2020
  • Sara Gilbert is still my favorite on that show of all time. She’s just soooooooo funny and smart and interesting.

    November 4, 2020
  • I found Marie very boring. She acted as if she were better than the other ladies. I love Cheryl! She and Sharon are the last two original members. The network knew very well what they were doing. Good job ladies.

    November 5, 2020
  • Agree, get rid of the people that are causing the problem, Sheryl and Sharon. No one asked the viewers what they thought. I didn’t know Sheryl was part of the reason but it was obvious Sharon was. Sharon’s the one obsessed with her hair. I miss Marie. I don’t watch The View because of the snarky women and The Talk is getting that way now. Remind the ladies to not talk over each other, we can’t hear anyone when they do that and when they feel they don’t like someone look in the mirror.

    November 5, 2020
  • Since I retired, I enjoyed watching The Talk each day & was so happy to see Marie getting a permanent place on the show. She was great! The show hasn’t been the same since she left. Sharon does NOTHING for the show…in my humble opinion…& I can’t imagine anyone would miss her presence. Carrie Ann is great too. Thank goodness for her. Hardly watch anymore…

    November 5, 2020
  • in my opinion, Marie was not a good fit. some of the ‘ ladies ‘ (and I use that word loosely, )are very crude and vulgar, their opinions and humor appear to not be comfortable for Marie; she was not quick to jump in with her own personal sex exploits, even when pushed. I felt she was uncomfortable at the table and instead of providing a balanced view her values were ridden over. I always thought Carnie Wilson a better fit she could stand up to the banter. I am not a fan of the show to much nepotism and personal promotion for my taste. I like Carrie Ann a lot she seems real, the others, not so much. I used to leave the show running while I waited for the one I wanted to see. . . now I switch channels and set a timer for the good stuff. good luck Marie better things are out there.

    November 6, 2020
  • Just like mostly everyone I too have stopped watching the talk. I agree Sharon has no talent. Sheryl is the modern version of a sex hungry so called Christian. Marie added class to the show. She doesn’t need to belittle herself to their level.

    November 10, 2020
  • I really liked Marie Osmond. Osborne should be the one to leave.
