Can you believe the Talk cohosts make so much money? The stars of the hit CBS show have some extraordinary net worths. While there’s no question whether they earned their spot on The Talk, these women have all taken different routes to get to where they are today.
The Talk — which first aired in October 2010 when Sara Gilbert created the program — features discussions about current events, pop culture and much more. Originally, Sara starred alongside Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, Marissa Jaret Winokur, Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini.
Following the first season, Marissa, Holly and Leah said their goodbyes and were replaced by Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler in 2011. While the Archer actress cohosted the show until season 7, Sheryl has kept her spot at the talk show’s table ever since.
Aisha departed the show in 2017, and her role was filled by Eve ahead of the program’s eighth season. Carrie Ann Inaba signed on for the following season, replacing Julie, who parted ways with The Talk after eight seasons in 2018.
The Talk experienced its biggest change when Sara announced she was leaving the series in April 2019, after hosting and serving as the executive producer for the first nine seasons. Fortunately for fans, her slot was filled with Marie Osmond. The “Paper Roses” songstress began her role as a host on The Talk by that September, but announced her exit from the Emmy-winning show after one year in October 2020. The following month, Eve revealed she was also leaving the show after four seasons.
Marie and Eve are no longer familiar faces on the program, but the program’s fans weren’t left empty-handed. In December 2020, The Talk revealed theater actress Amanda Kloots and author Elaine Welteroth were set to join the cast for season 11 in January 2021.
The series had a change-up once again when CBS announced Sharon was parting ways with The Talk after more than a decade in late March. The TV star’s exit came after Sharon was involved in a tense confrontation on the show. In addition to going on a two-week hiatus, the network announced it would launch an investigation into claims that Sharon made racist and homophobic remarks in the past.
“The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home. As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her cohosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace,” CBS said in a statement, noting “Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave The Talk.”
According to Deadline, The Talk is set to return to the air on April 12, though it’s unclear if the series has any plans to replace Sharon’s seat at the table.
