Marie Osmond Signs Talk Show Deal

Marie Osmond wants back on TV. After her recent stint on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," the singer/actress has linked up with Program Partners for an entertainment and lifestyle talk show set for a fall 2009 launch. Osmond hosted the late-'90s daytime talk show "Donny & Marie" with her brother and says the new show called "Marie," will focus on women's topics.

"It will be a real feel-good show," she says. "I've been through a lot of things in life and have no problem talking about it. Women need a safe place where they can laugh, feel good and relate to (other women)."

She adds that she is up for sharing her own experiences, which include a house burning down, postpartum depression, adoption and divorce. Ritch Colbert, co-founder of Program Partners with Josh Raphaelson, says the time is right for her to return to the small screen.
