Marie Osmond nabs her own talk show in '09

Marieosmond_l
So maybe she can’t dance, but we certainly know she can talk: Marie Osmond, who finished third last season on Dancing With the Stars, announced Tuesday that she’ll return to daytime in fall 2009 with her own syndicated talk show. This is Marie’s second attempt at emulating Oprah: She and brother Donny Osmond previously hosted an afternoon talk show in 1998, but it was canceled after only two seasons. Given all that she’s experienced in the last few years alone — the death of her parents, a painful divorce, and an embarrassing on-air fainting spell — Osmond admits she has much more to share with fans this time around. “I’ve been through pretty much everything,” says the 48-year-old mother of eight. “I don’t have a million nannies. I take care of my kids. I’m just about the most authentic person you can be.”

Osmond is also considering doing a prime-time special (or two) with Donny, who’s busy exploring his own options in TV. And no, they don’t involve sporting a pair of Danskins.

    Oh no please do not put Marie Osmond on the air. She was such a mess and I am sooo sick of her … get someone new to have a talk show. Marie Osmond is old news!

    I agree with you Tina. Marie is old and will never be Oprah. Her show sound like a waste of time. I agree the networks need to find new blood. Not old 70′ stars. Who ever is backing this show will see that people feel Marie is old news…she has old ladies as fans.

    okay I must admit I will not watch Marie. I think she is a head case. She is fake and puts on a act infront of all of us. I will be watching Oprah.

    I would not worry about it girls. It is a fact that Tv stars talk shows all go down the tube in the first year. Toni Danza and Megan Mully who was Karen on Will and Grace and Sharon Osborne gosh the list is long. No one will watch Marieall this is just a waist of you time. I was a producer for 20 years and I can tell you these type of talk show go off fast. I do get it marie with a talk show if she sings i will puke…she looks old with bad plastic surgey work…yuk

    I was just about to go to bed , then I read this news.
    Give me a break pleassssse. Marie with a talk show? what a joke! I predict the show will fail. No one gets Marie, how many husbands did she have? how many Kids does she have? who give a sh.t? We do not need people like Marie with a talk show we need people who have lived a good life to set us on the right road not a women who had lived her entire life as on big mess! darn those networks. Needless to say i will not tune in.

  • Anne Lombardo

I will never ever watch this show. Marie is old news I would like to see a new person for a a talk show.

  • Jody

    all I can say is next! this show will never see the light of day. whatever marie a talk show no one I know will watch the show. I am 38 my sister is 42 and we have always felt marie needs Tv to make herself feel good not us. marie is a big fat failed women who’s life is a mess and she sits and acts like we all really care about her. i can say my household will not watch this show.

  • Doreen Reed

    I use to like Maire but now she is grabbing at straws. She gets on dancing with the stars faints and boom as a talk show that is silly. I am a full time mother and do not get her anymore. A talk show why? she is a singer I like her better singing. Sorry having Marie 5 days a week on TV is a bit for me. I feel bad for her kids.
