Marie Osmond replacing Sara Gilbert on ‘The Talk’

The more Marie Osmond sings, the more she is asked to talk.

Thus, Osmond is taking on a suitable role on CBS daytime chat show “The Talk.” The network and the entertainment star made it official Tuesday that Osmond will take over for departing panelist Sara Gilbert. Opening the show’s 10th season, Osmond debuts Sept. 9, joining fellow co-hosts Eve, Carrie Ann Inaba, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood.

“The last time I was on, they said, ‘We just love your input on ‘The Talk,’ your personal experiences, and we want to know if you’d be interested in taking one of the seats,” Osmond said in a phone conversation Tuesday. “I said, ‘What!’ It happened very fast.”

Osmond hosted her own daytime show, “Marie,” on Hallmark in 2012-13 and co-hosted a syndicated talk show with brother Donny from 1998-2000.

“If you’ve seen Marie Osmond guest host on ‘The Talk’ over the past nine seasons, you know she’s the perfect addition to the show,” said Angelica McDaniel, executive vice president of daytime programs for CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Distribution. “Marie’s impressive career accomplishments have endeared her to fans throughout the decades. Her willingness to be authentic and share personal triumphs and struggles with honesty in the hopes of helping others always resonates. I’m excited to kick off season 10 with the multitalented, dynamic Marie at ‘The Talk’ table.”

Donny & Marie, a successful entertainment brand since they co-hosted their network variety show in the ’70s, are closing their 11-year run at Flamingo Las Vegas in November.

Paula Abdul moves in as a recurring headliner on Aug. 13 with her “Forever Your Girl” residency, which runs at least through January.

Osmond says she plans to return to the stage in her own production.

“We are in negotiations, but it will be solo with maybe some guests,” Osmond said. “I have five decades of history and I think we’ll do some storytelling besides the singing. I’ve done that for 11 years already.”

Osmond doesn’t anticipate performing at the Flamingo after she and Donny bow out in November.

“No, I’m looking for something different,” Osmond says. “I want to take you on a journey. I have a lot of history, and a lot of it people can relate to. I want to make you laugh, make you cry, and ultimately have a great night.”
