ET breaks the news that Marie Osmond's highly anticipated talk show "Marie," which was slated for a Fall 2009 launch, will not be going forward.

Program Partners cites the current economic downturn for the reason behind the decision.

But in spite of the news, Marie stays her positive self and still hopes to have a talk show one day.

"I want to express my deep appreciation for the faithful support and dedication shown by the numerous stations," Marie stated from backstage at the Flamingo hotel showroom. "It was my sincere desire to return their enthusiastic responses by producing an exceptional talk show for their fall schedules; produced with the high quality that is associated with the Marie Osmond brand for over four decades. This project, under proper conditions, still remains a strong passion of mine."

But Marie fans need not worry. Marie and her famous brother Donny are going strong in Las Vegas for their historic reunion show, which has been extended for two more years at the Flamingo hotel.
