Real Housewives to the rescue!
Several Real Housewives are in the running to replace Sharon Osborne on The Talk.
According to a new report, Bethenny Frankel, Lisa Rinna, and NeNe Leakes are all contenders to replace Sharon. Kris Jenner, Marie Osmond, and Meghan Markle are also in the running.
Rinna is a top contender to take Sharon’s spot.
The fan-favorite Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star “would love to fill Sharon’s shoes,” an insider reveals to In Touch. “She’s got a mouth on her that could boost ratings.”
Bethenny and NeNe have also caught the attention of producers as well.
NeNe’s guest-hosted on The Talk several times since 2019, and since she is no longer filming the Real Housewives of Atlanta, she has plenty of time to dedicate to the long-running talk show.
While Bethenny is a failed talk-show host, the former Bravo star has a huge fan base that producers believe would follow her to The Talk.
Meanwhile, former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville is also tossing her name in the ring as well after Andy Cohen said she’d be a great choice.
“I want to be on The Talk not as a guest but as host! Putting it out into the world,” Brandi tweeted.
Andy agreed that Brandi would be a great host for the CBS talk show.
“You’d give people a reason to tune in,” he shared on Twitter.
Brandi explained that she could share her Unfiltered opinion in a TV-appropriate manner.
“@TheTalkCBS I can be provocative without Using slang or getting sued – give me a chance. Thank you, @Andy, for your comment & believing in me, “ Brandi continued.
She added, “To be honest, they need someone who is involved in every facet & that is me. I am a mom first, and for most, I am a pop culture icon, and I have an opinion.”
No word on when CBS plans to replace Sharon officially, but they have plenty of great options!
