Fans were loving the clip, as they took to the comments sections to share nothing but positive reactions!
“This is awesome. Love the show, will love it more now that you’re part of it, Marie,” one person said. Another added, “Looking forward to you joining the crew. Will miss Sara Gilbert but you have already shown how well you interact with the hosts.” Donny Osmond‘s sister will be replacing The Conners actress, 44, who happens to be the creator of the CBS program.
“It is such a joy for me to be joining The Talk in September. After guest cohosting and appearing as a guest on the show throughout the years, I am thrilled to now call this my day job,” Marie said in a press release. “I look forward to working with Sharon, Sheryl, Eve and Carrie Ann, who are such smart, strong, talented women whom I immensely respect. I cannot wait to share this exciting new chapter with the viewers and the CBS family.”
Donny is all about this move for his sibling too, as he recently took to Twitter to show his excitement. “Thrilled for my sister @MarieOsmond as she takes on new role @TheTalkCBS,” the 61-year-old gushed of her latest career decision on Tuesday, May 7. “Working two shows at once will be a challenge, but if anyone can do it, it’s Marie. She makes a perfect cohost.”
News of Marie joining the show comes less than two months after she and The Masked Singer alum announced they were officially ending their 11-year Las Vegas residency run at the Flamingo Hotel and Resort. Until then, it looks like The Key Is Love author will be handling two big-time jobs. Incredible!
