Marie Osmond ‘didn’t even watch The Talk’s season premiere show as she enjoys cross country RV trip with husband’

OUSTED Marie Osmond did not even watch the premiere of The Talk's latest season - because she was too busy enjoying an RV road trip across the US, a source has revealed.

The star didn't tune in to see her former co-hosts pay tribute to her leaving the show because "she has made a conscious effort to forget and move on", the insider said.

Instead, the singer joined husband Stephen Craig on a road trip around the US in a luxury trailer - and the show "has been the last thing on her mind".

The couple apparently got the RV bug when taking daughter Abigail to college from their Utah home.

Since then, they have enjoyed breaks and trips on the road to "enjoy being with one another away from home and switching off from work'' the insider said.

Marie's exit from The Talk was revealed exclusively by The Sun earlier this month.

Then on Monday, former co-host Sharon Osbourne told viewers she “hopes” Marie comes back on the show, despite the former co-host getting fired after just one season.

A TV source told The Sun: "Marie did not skip a beat thinking about the show coming back, because she and Steve have been on a late summer set of road trips and RV vacations around the US.

"They took their daughter to college by RV as a fun family bonding adventure, rather than flying, and got the road bug.

"Since then, they have been hitting the highways visiting fun places and tourist spots in the Rocky Mountains, north western and midwest America.

"The Talk has been the last thing on Marie's mind. When she was let go, all the behind the scenes drama, was something she made a conscious effort to forget and move on.

"This trip has been like a second honeymoon for Marie and Steve.

"She will not badmouth her co-stars or the show, because she sees her season as a learning experience. It is not in her nature or strong Christian values to blow anything up in public.

"People forget she has gone through some tough times and much more challenging trials than this. Put simply - it is done.

"And she has already been approached by another TV network for a program idea alongside her working on a new album and Las Vegas show."

Asked if she would accept Sharon's offer of being welcomed back on to the show, the source said: "You cannot rule it out. But I am not sure how that would go."

Sources told The Sun earlier this month that Marie felt like an “outsider” at the table.

Monday's Season 11 premiere on CBS saw the remaining four hosts – Sharon, Carrie Ann Inaba, Sheryl Underwood and Eve – talking about their summers and how happy they are to be back on the show.

After a few minutes of catching up with one another – Carrie Ann and Sheryl in-studio and Sharon and Eve virtually – the topic turned to Marie.

Carrie Ann told the audience at home: “We are truly, truly just so happy to be back in-studio. As you can see, though, Marie is not here.

“After being part of The Talk last season, Marie has moved on and is focusing on a number of personal and professional projects of her own.”

That’s when Sharon jumped in to add: “And you know what, I can’t wait – all of us can’t wait – to see her in her next project, and I hope she comes back on this show to talk about it.”

Her co-hosts clapped for that response, with Eve adding on an “absolutely, absolutely.”

Sources said Marie was “not surprised” to get the boot from the show because at times "it was four versus one" as Marie discussed the day's top topics with the others.

And there was a "sense she was never loved as much" as the woman she replaced, original show creator Sara Gilbert.

Osmond posted a picture of herself with her husband in Colorado on August 27.

She captioned the snap "Happy birthday to my sweetheart! We got the youngest kids off to college and decided to spend some together time enjoying God‘s beautiful earth."
