Ever since Sara Gilbert cocreated The Talk in October 2010, the Emmy Award-winning show has seen tons of incredible cohosts. Stars like the Roseanne actress, Julie Chen, Marie Osmond and more have come and gone, but they’re still keeping themselves busy with their Hollywood careers and projects today.
At the time Sara announced she was leaving her job following the ninth season in April 2019, she tearfully revealed the decision was due to a busy schedule. Pointing out the struggle of juggling her work and role as a mom, the sitcom star said she wanted to spend more time with her kids, Levi, Sawyer and Rhodes.
“This is hard to do. This is something that I have been struggling with for a while, and going back and forth, but I’ve decided that it’s time for me to leave the show at the end of this season,” Sara announced at the time. “I obviously love it here and, like I said, this was extremely difficult.”
Following the Conners actress’ announcement, The Talk revealed Marie would be taking her place alongside then-stars Sharon Osbourne, Eve and Carrie Ann Inaba, as well as current host Sheryl Underwood. Shortly after making her debut as a full-time cohost in September 2019, the “Paper Roses” songstress said she couldn’t have fit in with the crew any better.
“OK, you want a scoop? We actually like each other … shocker,” Marie adorably joked during an exclusive interview with Closer in October 2019. “I’ve been telling everybody I’m so happy because now I’m on the group text, so it’s like, ‘Lunch here, we will meet up here.’ It’s just so fun.”
Sadly, the Donny & Marie star revealed she was leaving the hit daytime talk show after just one season in September 2020. Like Sara, Marie was “looking forward to spending more time” with her husband, Steve Craig, and their children, Stephen, Jessica, Rachael, Brandon, Brianna, Matthew and Abigail, an insider dished to Closer.
Since Marie’s exit, The Talk has experienced countless other change-ups to the cast, including Eve’s departure after four seasons in November 2020. Though the program hired theater actress Amanda Kloots and author Elaine Welteroth for season 11 in January 2021, Sharon said goodbye to The Talk after more than a decade just two months later in March.
Sadly for viewers, Carrie Ann also announced she was leaving the show to focus on her “well-being.” The Dancing With the Stars judge revealed she “mutually agreed to part ways” with CBS in August. By the end of the month, Elaine released a statement announcing her exit from the show following one season. The Teen Vogue editor-in-chief marveled over her six-month stint, saying it was an “absolute honor” to be able to “occupy space on-air” as “a young Black woman” on The Talk.
Regardless of losing five cohosts in the last year, the morning show made history when Jerry O’Connell was hired as The Talk‘s first male host in July. While the program has yet to reveal who will else join the cast, there’s no doubt Jerry, Sheryl and Amanda will keep viewers entertained.
