In the wake of the devastating loss of her son to suicide, Marie Osmond is picking up the pieces and returning to her gig.

The Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas confirmed that Marie and her brother Donny will return to their stage show next Tuesday, only a day after the scheduled funeral for her son, Michael.

Keep holding on, Marie. Our thoughts are with you and the whole Osmond family at this most difficult time.

    I feel so sad for Marie I could not imagine loosing a child.



  3. 3

    I feel so bad for her :( So sad.



  4. 4

    ah, yes, the show must go on…



  5. 5

    Too sad for words.
    That's a club no parent wants to be a part of.
    I cried for a year, every single day, when my 16-year old poodle died, of natural causes.
    Unimaginable the road Marie and the father of this boy are on.



  6. 6

    I hope she doesn't break down on stage. After a death I go straight back to work too. I tried staying home and I just wanted to die. I hope this helps her.



  7. 7

    I saw this story weeks ago before her son killed himself.

    Re: NancyOttawa – DUH. the main point is she's going to continue on with it even after the tragedy that took place.



  9. 9

    Um…..thats a little fast to be heading back to work.



  10. 10

    Why is she doing work? she should be grieving not going to las vegas what a weirdo!



  11. 11

    i'm so sick of phony marie/donny osmond…she will start singing a bunch of religious songs now to make people feel sorry for her so she can sell more tickets to her "VEGAS" show…her son was sucidal…he should have been under adult supervision…not living in a high rise apt. with a bunch of kids…now donny/marie on tv crying AGAIN…I use to like her now I really HATE her big time…poor marie/so sad…go home and be with yourfamily in private and morm…she's always crying and blabbing her problems on tv…I can't stand her…she never ever stays home with those kids…why is she always bawling on tv…that's just not normal…if you're hurting/morning…u want to be with family/frineds don't u? who acts like that? that women is so totally phony/sickening/ disgusting and crazy.

    So Sad…my thoughts and prayers go out to Marie or any other Mom who
    has gone through a tragic death as this!!!
    grew up with the Osmond!!! love Donny and Marie…be strong!!!



  13. 13

    Really Marie? Maybe you could keep your ass home for a change..isn't it possible your other kids might need you now or you just don't give a shit? Go sell your look alike dolls and your diets, have fun in Vegas if you want, but I hope you realize that 8 kids is a huge responsibility that YOU wanted but so far you haven't done a very good job being there for them. I feel bad for all of your kids.



  14. 14

    Disgusting. She's not mourning him at all. She wants to get back to all the attention. It was her addiction to all this attention that made her not pay enough attention to her son and now he's dead and what does she do? Milk it for the audience. Famewhore!



  15. 15

    God bless you all



  16. 16

    what a very brave woman she is. i really admire marie alot. i hope that returning to the stage brings her comfort and joy, i'm sure her fans will give her a huge welcome back.

    I would like to make a comment to the people that say Marie is going back to work to soon and that she should grieve.

    I have lost two nephews over time. I watched how my brothers and their wives struggled with the death of their children. The ones that went back to life as soon as possible dealt with the death of their son better than the ones that did not. In fact one pair of parents still are not dealing with it and it has been over 2 years.

    Sad fact is that people have to go back to work, maybe not the Osmonds but for most people, bills have to be paid, sometimes there are other children to look after etc. You have to go on even if you do not want to. My husband works for a national railway company and if we lost a child would only get 5 days off. Only 5.



  18. 18

    Re: Tinalouise – I agree totally with you. She just lost her kid and already going back to do entertainment! Everyone grieves differently but there are other children to think about and time should be taken because of that!!!

    Well, now we know why her son suffered from depression and ultimately killed himself. If she's willing to go back on stage within days after his death, singing hokey show tunes and bantering back and forth with Donny, she clearly didn't love her son the way a mother should. He doubtlessly felt this growing up. This makes the whole thing even more sad.

    Re: skylark211 – I hate them both.What a phony.



  21. 21

    I know this is trite, but Marie could use a new stylist.
    The Nutrisystem ads are just awful.
    Out-of-date hair that would give Loretta Lynn and Dollie Parton a run for their money.
    Make-up so thick and yucky…I'll stop right here, because of her situation.
    I would love her to get a makeover from the folks at "What Not To Wear".



  22. 22

    gee… that was a quick grieving process… I guess showbusiness comes first with the Osmonds… stage before family! Isn't that their family motto?



  23. 23

    Her and her religion killed her son and almost made her daughter do the same. I feel no pity for her.



  24. 24

    Love u Marie. Stay strong!

    Re: JonSin – Are you friends with seattleLarry?



  26. 26

    I can't even imagine how one grieves for the loss of a child, but it seems like to me her jumping back into this entertainment world so soon will not be a healthy way of dealing with it.



  27. 27

    Marie is a selfish, atttention seeker sadly. She is more worried about trying to look 15 years old again than her kids. She is a middle aged woman who can't handle not being the center of attention. I feel bad for anyone going through what she has experienced, but I am sure she will use this for more attention.



  28. 28

    I wonder if this has to do with her contract that she has to go back to work so soon. Seems a bit weird. Is the Flamingo hoping to sell out these shows? I am sure a death in the family is covered in the contract. Seems really shady.



  29. 29

    unless you've lost a child,you cant imagine what it's like. i have. each
    person copes a different way.if this is marie's way of coping,more power
    to her.dont judge her. i hope to GOD some of you that have left harsh
    comments never have to go through such a dreadful nightmare.

    Re: luvstotango – omg, i dread the day that my little dog passes. There is such an unbelievably close bond between a pet and owner, and maybe even more so with little dogs (since they are bound to your side). But anyway, I cannot imagine what Marie is going through. No parent should have to bury their child :(

    -Oh, dear, I am so sorry for your loss mema05, and I know all that read your post, send prayers to you… a special place in heaven awaits.



  32. 32

    Re: mema05 – very well said xx hugs xx

    I could not imagine what you went through (or marie for the matter). It's totally inappropriate for people to make harsh comments and/or cast judgment.



  33. 33

    I applaud Marie. A very strong woman. It's been over a week. After my Mom died, I couldn't imagine staying home, moping around the house for more than a week. People criticizing Marie need to get some compassion and realize you've never been through it. ———–

    Grief professionals will tell you that children need to know they're safe, that they're Mom is safe and that things can be like normal again. It's the toughest things for parents grieving to do, but they need to recreate "normal" as soon as possible. ————-

    To #28 ChiaChia - The Donny & Marie sells out significantly in advance. The shows canceled were sell-outs. There are dancers, musicians, back stage personnel, even hotel personnel who profit from the show's business depending on Donny & Marie to fulfill their contract.



  34. 34

    Also - if any of you bothered to educate yourself even by doing a simple google search, you'd see that ALL of Michael's friends talked about how close he was to his Mom. Marie visited him almost every week to make sure he was doing alright. They talked daily. His best friend just today said, "She did such a great job - she's a great Mom." The point the friend was making was that Marie shouldn't blame herself. We can't know what happened or why. Obviously, she's a much more compassionate and knowledgeable person than many of the posters here.

    Re: luvstotango – i think it's a case of terminal mormonism. mormon ladies always seem to have big hair. and the ones that wear makeup seem to wear a LOT. i'd love to see somebody give marie a "make-under". she's a beautiful lady and i think she'd look even better if they toned it down.



  36. 36

    I HAVE MET HER SEVERAL TIMES=SHE REALLY IS AN INCREDIBLE WOMAN-BUT I STILL DON'T KNOW HOW SHE CAN GET UP THE NERVE TO GO TO WORK SO SOON –THEY ALWAYS DO A MEET AND GREET AFTER THE SHOW, I WOULD THINK THAT WOULD BE VERY DIFFICULT. DEEPEST SYMPATHIES MARIE



  37. 37

    What the fuck happened to her face?

    -That's a good one, and you're right….LOL



  39. 39

    That is weird! But it seems with the Osmonds that work has always been the most important thing in their lives. Maybe she should take off some time and give her children some attention.

    Re: luvstotango – You are so right! Her hair scares me and that make-up, yuck!

    Re: Marcus75YOW – The show must go on. Work keeps entertainers sane. I worked to cope through several family deaths. It kept my numb feet on the ground. Everyone deals in different ways; there is no one good way to deal with loss of family.



  42. 42

    That is more than a little too soon. Good Lord, she was his mother! How about 6 months or so instead?



  43. 43

    That is more than a little too soon! Good Lord, she was his mother! How about 6 months, at least, instead?



  44. 44

    i dont think its for anyone to say whats right and whats wrong when it comes to mourning a loved one because everyone is different.who knows the poor woman might be in complete denial,speaking from experience its almost as if you go into auto pilot and u just go,go,go and then BAM it hits u like a ton of bricks.it truely is the WORST feeling the loss of someone u love.i couldn't imagine what it feels like for a mother to lose her child.give the woman a f'n break people,she lost her baby



  45. 45

    I love Marie.
