Interferring Mother-in-law

My mother-in-law moved in three years ago. She has caused lots of problems between me and my husband. My husband is an only child and has lived with her off and on since 1967. I'm his third wife, so you can guess why he's on no. three. She is an incessant talker and hogs any conversation we try to have. He doesn't know how to tell her to butt out, and I don't want to get into a screaming match. This is their pattern: he comes home and she's waiting to talk to him. She will blather on and on even if he leaves the room. Her monlogues go on for as long as one hour. If he and I go in another room to talk, he will get up to go "check" on her. Of course, she's waiting for him to come back. This is everyday. His days off are spent entertaining her. I am at my wits end and need advice.
