What a remarkably brave thing to do.

Marie Osmond was left devastated less than a year ago when her 18-year-old son, Michael Blosil, killed himself, but in light of the recent string of tragic deaths involving gay teens, she's decided to speak out to Oprah Winfrey about losing her son - in hopes that she can help prevent someone else from meeting a similar fate!

A source explains:

"Marie never imagined she would have the strength to talk about this devastating subject, but with so many gay teens committing suicide recently she had no choice. Against the advice of her family and friends Marie herself decided it was time to speak out and called Oprah to ask if she would be interested. This will be the hardest interview Marie has ever done. You can expect a lot of tears and rare pain that only a parent who had lost a child could ever understand. She knows Oprah will ask the hard questions like 'Do you blame yourself?' and 'Do you think you could have done anything differently?' But Marie isn't afraid. She has been asking herself those questions every day since her son took his life."

Wow.

We can't even imagine the hell that she and her family have endured, so to talk about that kind of grief publicly in order to help others is truly above and beyond.

This is going to be one difficult interview to watch, but certainly necessary.

Stay strong, bb. We're thinking of you.

    she is partially responsible for her son's death, it is widely known that he was gay and her religion certainly condemns that.



  2. 2

    You mean the one that is TOTALLY HER FAULT!



  3. 3

    Marie need to get a sense of decorum and disappear. She placed her career in front of being a mother and continues to do so. I cringe when I see her onJenny Craig commercials or selling crap. Oprah a fame whore who is crummy to her own mother!



  4. 4

    MARIE REALLY *REALLY* HAS TO FIND A NEW STYLIST. SHE'S STARTING TO LOOK LIKE A TRANNY. NOT A GOOD LOOK MARIE, CONSIDERING YOUR CHURCH AND ALL.

    what a crock of shit….two weeks ago you were blasting her and saying she was a contributor to the 'gay bullying' that swept the nation…now she's brave and you're 'thinking about her'….

    stop with all of this phony being nice bullshit and be honest….you're a gossiping little bitch that hates the famous because they are and you're not… at least be honest with who and what you are…



  6. 6

    The dumb bitch just wants publicity.Fuck Her………



  7. 7

    ….ah….Maybe if the kid haden't been raised with a religious belief of burning in hell if he was gay……..things could have been different. I cannot judge Marie, maybe she taught the child differently. Maybe she taught him that God loves everyone.



  8. 8

    Mario, you are such an asssucker it is amaziiingballs!!!!! To say you cannot imagine what kind of 'hell' the family went through……what family hasn't been through hell? I don't know any family who hasn't had a child die, or had a victim of cancer, or a death in a car wreck….it is life, stupid Mario, embrace the wonderment.



  9. 9

    OMG all that plastic surgery (which apparently is not against her religion or the 5 divorces), and her eyes are uneven and crooked!!!



  10. 10

    Marie - please get the hell out of mormon church and join one which is more inclusive. Some religions promote and perpetuate hate against gay people - you need to find one that fits your values.



  11. 11

    Marie paid to have he son committed to a "GAY-TO-STRAIGHT" conversion organization THAT DROVE HIM INSANE!



  12. 12

    WHAT AN EVIL to the core WOMAN!



  13. 13

    Of course she's SELLING A BOOK………EVIL WOMAN & CULT CHURCH MEMBER!



  14. 14

    Is that why she's going on Oprah, to promote a book? Are the audience members going to find one under their seats?



  15. 15

    People! Get a grip. Irregardless of her faith,Marie is still a mom and her son died! Of course she still works. She is the sole support to her family!
    If she worked in a factory,would you still feel that this was all her fault?
    Give her a break! First and foremost,she is a mom.
    While ,yes,her church condemns homosexuality,so do many others. THAT'S what's at fault here. If more people followed the live and let live part of life,these kids would never have felt they had to kill themselves.
    I give Marie a lot of credit that she's speaking out about this. She could just as easily NOT say anything. Just maybe her input could stop another child from doing the same thing. I applaud any and all people who speak out. Something needs to be done to stop all this horror.
    How would you all feel if this was YOUR child?



  16. 16

    Guilt and money,its a beautiful thing,ain,t it Marie.



  17. 17

    WHY IS EVERYONE SO DESPERATE FOR FAME ?
    COMING OUT AND OPENING UP ABOUT YOUR SONS SUICIDE SEEMS DESPERATE FOR ATTENTION…
    HMMMM I THINK IM READY TO TALK ABOUT MY SONS SUICIDE…..
    LET ME CALL OPERA……
    That really sounds like someone that is hurt…….. NOT !!!!!!!!!

    Deep down (or not so deep down) she's probably glad he offed himself. I mean, she's been with her wacky religion longer than he was alive. I bet she feels like a burden has been lifted. It must've been if she can go on a TV show to tak about it and promote a new book. And don't give me the 'she has to make a living too' crap. She's got enough money to live ten lives in the lap of luxury. She doesn't have to do this. Truely, a monster.

    eff marie and eff opra, they should both follow marie's son and do all of us a favor! two totally phoney women with a bunch of idiots that believe in them. by the way marie does look like a tranny, would someone please knock out her big fat teeth out! opra's too. then they maybe wouldnt eat so much. this is not negative talk, its the truth.



  20. 20

    Marie was planning her own talk show (the buyer backed out due to the economy), and said Oprah didn't understand anything about being a parent. So now she hawks this to Oprah, just like she leaked this week's story to The Enquirer about her ex- husband supposedly being under investigation for sexual abuse. I doubt this poor kid got much attention from her, and yeah, I smell her selling another self serving book.

    Her face looks bizarre! Glaring eyeballs, flying eyebrows and a weird unnatural upper lip!
