Marie Osmond Battles Brother Donny Osmond: Writes Tell-All Book About Family Secrets

Marie Osmond Battles Brother Donny Osmond: Writes Tell-All Book About Family Secrets

The tormented Marie Osmond is finally opening up about the severe depression she suffered from for the past few years. Marie will be cutting her soul to the core during an upcoming tell-all book about her son’s tragic suicide in 2010, the failure of her first marriage to Stephen Craig, the alleged abuse she suffered at the hands of her second husband Brian Blosil and her life shattering nervous breakdown in 1999.

A source close to the Osmond family opened up to The Enquirer about Marie’s battle with depression, “Marie’s depression got so bad at one point she feared her career would be over or she would kill her­self if she didn’t take drastic steps to cure her misery. So she asked loved ones to check her into a mental hospital for treatment. Not a fancy rehab facil­ity – but an old-time mental ward with padded cells, straitjackets, restraints and electric shock treat­ments. Marie didn’t know what might happen next in her mind and wanted to be in a hos­pital that was fully equipped to handle anything.” One of the side effects of ECT (Electroconvulsive therapy) is severe memory loss and even though the controversial treatment has been known to work in many cases of severe depression and obsessive suicidal ideations, Marie decided against the aggressive treatment. “It was only the fear of being un­able to remember the lyrics to her songs onstage that made her change her mind about undergoing shock therapy and toughing it out on her own,” said the source.

The tell-all book has already caused a divide between her and her Las Vegas performing partner, her equally famous brother Donny Osmond. The source divulged, “The book’s topic is the mental illness of depression and how it can shatter families, but Marie plans to reveal everything about her life struggles, including a lot of things her family does not want exposed.” Marie has overcome her terrible battle with depression and has since become one of the most popular women in the entertainment industry. She has a talk show on the Hallmark Channel, regular sold-out Las Vegas performances at the Flamingo hotel, a new line of dolls sold on QVC, books written by her, handcrafting and her philanthropic work with Children’s Miracle Network. There is no publishing date set for the book, but the source revealed that when it is published, the family will be rocked to the core, “Her family will find a lot in this book to upset them, but Marie has told them ‘I’m 52-years-old and ready to let everyone know the real story about my life. It’s time to finally set the record straight.

We applaud Marie for her courage, resilience and attitude towards life and we hope this book will seal all of those open wounds. What do you think? Do you think Marie should release this book and bring her family down? Let us know in the comments below.

    I applaud Marie for writing this book. Being told to hide who you really are when you don’t feel you have anything to be ashamed of has to make life difficult. Why not be who you really are? We’re all human beings, including the Osmonds.

    The only thing Marie is seeking is more publicity; I said it before and I’ll say it again: she is her best publicity agent; she’ll sell her soul if it meant she’ll get publicity; she is an attention whore! So now she is coming out with another, yawn, scandalous book; never mind that she doesn’t actually writes it (she has a ghost writer); Marie is not that talented, but do we really need to know more Osmond CRAP? Who cares? She looks horrid; she really looks old and wrinkly in that picture, ugh! She’s an idiot; she marries the same man twice that cheated on her; the ink was barely dry on the divorce decree when she married the next one (she didn’t give herself time to heal) and both, maybe three, times she was the one that asked those men to marry her; it’s almost like she needs to validate herself by having a man waiting in the wings; she is one of the weakest person I’ve ever heard of; a disgrace to women everywhere and how long does she think she can go on with the same stupid songs and brother and sister act? It’ll be pathetic; Marie, it’s time to put yourself out to pasture and please, please do our eyes a favor and stop with the hideous plastic surgeries, the extremely photo-shopped pictures you feed the media and the “family tragedies/scandals” you are so fond of telling the talk-show circuit; I would respect you more as a person if you aged gracefully, wore clothing (minus the super girdle) that is in better taste and age appropriate (most of the time you look like an old whore or worse, like an aging drag queen), wear less make-up and let yourself be seen without all that goop every now and then like a normal woman would and stop craving the limelight and dedicate yourself for once to home and family….you are a sad case; you remind me of Bette Davis in “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.”

    Isn’t it true that she had an affair with John Schneider when he was married? And isn’t it true that she had a fling with Jonathan Roberts, her dance partner?

    I don’t think Marie Osmond needs money or attention. She already has enough of both. However, I did meet her once and she wasn’t that warm or friendly like she appears to be in person. I have met Donny many times and each time, he was nice but looked very sad. Neither one of them, when you meet them in person, is upbeat and happy like they are on TV. It is like- when the TV is on — they are ON! It is a trained response, I think.This is not a criticism it is just an observance. Anyway, I think of her often and wonder how she does everything that she does. I don’t see how she could have time for children.
