Marie Osmond, 59, singer and TV personality, is the newest co-host for the daytime show, “The Talk,” which will be official on September for their 10th season.


Sara Gilbert’s exit on “The Talk” left an empty slot for a new co-host to join the weekday show, and luckily, Marie Osmond was a perfect fit. She will be joining the other current hosts, Sheryl Underwood, Eve, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Sharon Osbourne.

The announcement was made on Tuesday’s episode as Osmond said:

“It is such a joy for me to be joining “The Talk” in September. After co-hosting and appearing as a guest on the show throughout the years, I am thrilled to now call this my day job.”


The news was also made on the daytime show’s Twitter account, followed by a retweet from Osmond expressing her excitement over spending her weekdays with her co-hosts and audiences. Fans of the show welcomed her with warmth on Twitter, as she sets foot on a new journey.

One user expressed her sentiments, saying that Osmond is a perfect fit on the show and an ideal replacement for Sara Gilbert, who left the show after nine seasons last month due to personal reasons.


“Marie has to be the hardest working entertainer out there. She gives her show 110%,” said another.

Angelica McDaniel, CBS Entertainment’s executive VP daytime programs also addressed Osmond as the “perfect addition to the show." She highlighted the singer’s “impressive career accomplishments” and her talents to host a show.

Osmond is known for her TV show with her brother, Donny Osmond, called “Donny & Marie,” which ran from 1976 to 1979. Apart from her television appearances, she is also a singer with many albums and an author of three New York Times best-selling books.


The good news of Osmond's permanent spot on the show is probably the best Mother’s Day present she could receive, but of course, her eight children and four grandchildren can top that off anytime before Sunday.

The newest addition to “The Talk” revealed that her big family is who she wants to spend Mother’s Day with, especially her grandkids. She told the Daily Mail:

“Sometimes we’ll celebrate early or after, so they can have their own celebrations, and sometimes we’ll celebrate all together. But whatever it is, I have to have my grandchildren with me.”
