'The Talk' Hosts Call Out Diane Sawyer for Her Britney Spears Interview in 2003

The hosts of The Talk are calling on legendary journalist Diane Sawyer to apologize to Britney Spears for how she treated the singer in a 2003 interview.

Diane‘s interview with Britney is put on the spotlight in the new documentary Framing Britney Spears, which is streaming now on Hulu.

In the interview, with a then 22-year-old Britney, the journalist asked about her split from Justin Timberlake and said, “You broke his heart. You did something that caused him so much pain, so much suffering. What did you do?”

Diane also brought up a comment made that year by Maryland’s first lady, who called the singer a bad influence and said, “Really, if I had an opportunity to shoot Britney Spears, I think I would.” Diane then seemingly defended that horrific comment by saying, “It’s because of the example for kids and how hard it is to be a parent.”

Eve Is Leaving 'The Talk' After Four Seasons As England Enters Another Lockdown

Eve is saying goodbye to The Talk.

The 41-year-old rapper revealed her intentions to leave the show after being part of it for four seasons.

Eve has been co-hosting the show from her home in London and since the country is going into another lockdown, she is unable to travel and be with her co-hosts in person for the show.

“It’s been a crazy year, obviously for all of us,” she shared on the program today (November 2). “And I’m so grateful that I’m able to stay here in London and do the show, but I can’t see for me, the foreseeable future of traveling back at the moment, and have decided that at the end of December, this will probably be my last time on the show, in this capacity as a host.”

Eve continued, “We’re on another lockdown from Thursday, and that’s another reason, obviously staying home has been such a blessing because my husband [Maximillion Cooper] and I got to know each other in a different way, a beautiful way. So I want to be closer to him. I want to concentrate on expanding our family, being with my family.”

“I have had the most beautiful experience. I’ve grown as a woman, as a person. I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again, I never thought that being on a talk show would be this much of an opening of my spirit, soul, personality, everything. Sitting on stage with all you women has been the best thing ever. I truly love you,” she concluded.

There’s no word on a replacement for her seat at the table as of right now.

Just two months ago, Marie Osmond also left the show after only one season.

It was announced on Tuesday (September 2) that the 60-year-old entertainer is leaving the CBS talk show after one season.

“Marie is a consummate professional, and we thank her for sharing her personal experiences, insight, as well as incredible talents, with our audience,” CBS said in a statement to Deadline. “We will miss her humor, kindness and good nature, and wish her much success in her future endeavors.”

Marie is currently working on new projects, including a new show with ViacomCBS.

In her farewell statement, Marie opened up about working with The Talk‘s longtime executive producer and showrunner John Redmann, who recently announced he was leaving the show after 10 seasons.

“One of the highlights of my year at The Talk was working with my dear friend John Redmann, and I’m excited to continue our working relationship on several projects we are developing,” Marie said. “Also, my husband and I just dropped our last two kids off at college, we looked at each other, laughed and remembered we hadn’t been this alone together since 1982!! So, at this stage of my life, I’m looking forward to spending more time with him and visiting all the kids/grandkids.”

Marie joined The Talk in May 2019, replacing Sara Gilbert. It has not been announced if someone will be replacing Marie.

Production for season 11 of The Talk is set to begin later this month.
