Weeks after television personality Marie Osmond left the syndicated talk show, "The Talk," show host Sharon Osbourne spoke out about her exit.


Television icon Sharon Osbourne finally addressed former co-host, Marie Osmond's exit from the CBS show, "The Talk." During an interview with Kevin Frazier of ET, the star divulged:

"We've had changes. People coming in and going. So we just go with the flow. I have to say that with four hosts, we've got more time to talk."

Osmond's exit just before the show's 11th season kicked off left Osbourne and her three other co-hosts, Carrie Ann Inaba, Sheryl Underwood, and Eve, responsible for the CBS series.

While Inaba and Underwood hosted the episodes from the set, Eve and Sharon made virtual appearances due to the pandemic. Speaking on her experience hosting the show virtually, Osbourne said:

"It was a bummer. It was really a bummer not to be there."


Sharon Osbourne granted the interview from a hotel room where she has been quarantining since two of her granddaughters tested positive for COVID-19.

Although several tests carried out on the icon since she went into quarantine came out negative, she was determined to complete the required period, which is due this Friday.

The five women won hearts with their open-minded insights into societal issues.


The 67-year-old TV host has been open about her family's experience through the novel coronavirus outbreak. She first disclosed her granddaughter, Minnie's COVID-19 status, during the premiere of "The Talk's" 11th season while explaining her absence from the studio.

Sharon also confirmed that neither of Minnie's parents and siblings tested positive for the virus. She asserted that the 3-year-old girl, who contracted the virus from her son, Jack Osbourne's employee, was faring okay.

She went on to pass an important lesson from the situation to fans saying it shows children are susceptible to COVID-19; the lesson was well received.


Going further, Osbourne assured viewers of her return to the set once she completed her quarantining period in London. This comes weeks after Marie Osmond announced her resignation from "The Talk" to pursue other projects.

Marie Osmond joined the CBS show in May 2019, hosting alongside Osbourne, Inaba, Eve, and Underwood. For a year, the five women won hearts with their open-minded insights into societal issues. 

Osmond's unique sense of humor undoubtedly made the series more appealing, leaving fans with something to yearn for after her unexpected exit.
