Did Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood push Marie Osmond off The Talk? The backlash against the CBS daytime talk show continues as people believe that Sharon and Sherly essentially forced CBS into letting Marie Osmond go. Things really came to a head when New York’s Page Six quoted an anonymous insider who claimed to have the details and put the blame solely on Sharon and Sheryl. Though no one has publicly confirmed the reports, and Marie Osmond says she left to spend time with her family, the backlash continues. People are still sounding off on The Talk’s social media pages demanding Marie Osmond’s return to the show.
Page Six exclusively reported the following.
Show veterans Sharon and Sheryl threatened to quit unless Marie was canned. They pushed her to quit but when she didn’t, they made an ultimatum to the network.” Meanwhile, fellow co-host Carrie Ann Inaba “pleaded with execs for Marie to stay but she wasn’t successful changing their minds.
The report infuriated Marie’s fans who felt she was a wonderful addition to the cast. They began sounding off on The Talk‘s Instagram page with many people saying they wouldn’t continue to watch the show.
One person stated this, ‘Won’t be watching bye! You jumped the shark! Too political and I really hope Marie quit but I think Sharon got her fired! CBS get a clue!”
