Marie Osmond Says That Her Son Who Committed Suicide Wasn't Gay

marie osmond dispells rumors about her sons sexuality

During her interview with Oprah, Marie Osmond dispelled rumors that Michael Blosil, her 18 year old son who recently committed suicide, was gay.

Here's what she had to say regarding rumors about her son's sexuality:

"My son was not gay. He wanted to be married and have a family and travel all over the world. And it wouldn't matter if he was — I have a daughter who's gay.

Marie went on to say how her daughter was offended by the rumors, because they implied that "everyone who's gay commits suicide."

Gay or straight, it's a terrible tragedy when a teenager takes their own life out of depression.

If you're feeling depressed, you should never let it get to the point where ending your life is the only answer. There's always a better solution. Whatever your sexuality may be, it can get better. You need to try as hard as you can to be strong and seek help and guidance during your time of need.

Our thoughts continue to go out to Marie and her family during this difficult time.

    I believe the "blogger" Oprah was referring to was YOU! But to tell you the truth, regardless of what Marie says I still think her son was gay. Judging from the pictures of him, his mannerisms and the fact that he was going to school for fashion design…I mean come on. That was a very emotional show, I cried the entire time!

    Oh so people who are gay can't want to get married, have kids, and travel the world? And since she already had one gay kid there was no way to have another one? I smell BS…

  3. 3

    Regardless may he RIP!

    They're Mormons, one of the most hateful religions towards gay. Even if he was gay, I got the sense she'd never admit it. It might bring up questions of that religion's part in him being so down on himself.

    Aww, I have to say I feel bad for her. I don't really think I would have went back to work so soon if I were her. I think she could have afforded not to work a few days, or longer. It is not like those Osmonds' are broke.

    Marie is a horrible mother. She was my neighbor in California and I think she was home about 2 days out of the month and the police were always at her home. She children were always desperate for attentions. She was back on the stage in vegas hours after her son's suicide obviously she wasnt too concerned with it.

    umm she sounded angry when oprah asked this question. makes me suspicious but it doesn't matte if he was or notr now. so so sad.

    I really think that the son was gay. I think that because of women like Ellen, gay woman have been seen as more acceptable in a recent light. Just because he wanted to get married, doesnt mean he didnt want the right to marry a man. As a mormon woman, Im sure she has problems with homosexuality.

    I worked at the Standard Bldg RIGHT NEXT DOOR from the Metro and ALL THE GUYS WERE GAY in that building…of course except Marie's son!

  13. 13

    The Osmond family always pretended to be a perfect family when in fact it was one of America's MOST FUCKED-UP FAMILIES!

  14. 14

    hahahahaha! does her daughter have a brain? Everyone who's gay commits suicide? uh, why is Elton John still living (please god…)? What about Neil Patrick Harris and David Hyde Pierce and Ellen DeGeneres and Melissa Ethridge (please god, once more) and er….many of my friends? I think she meant "anyone who commits suicide is gay" but that doesn't work either.

    and Marie, you know he wasn't gay because "he wanted to be married and have a family and travel the world"? HAHAHAHA! yep, that proves it all right! Only straight people get married, have kids or travel! HAHAHAHA.

    I definitely don't agree "there is always a better solution" than suicide. Sometimes it's the best strategy.

    Re: MarioMonjack – Dude you are Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. Quit worrying about who others are attracted to and go work on yourself.

    She knows damn well that kid was gay. And she has been a stinking lousey Mom and did go to Vegas to perform the day after it happened. Her family intervened and told her it wouldn't look good if she immediately went back to work. She's a pill popping bitch that is more concerned with her dolls then her children.

  18. 18

    Does she not realize even if he was gay he could still have a family and travel the world

  19. 19

    In the 19th century and earlier, people who were gay were thought to have a mental disease and they'd send you to get medical help to become "ungay". Can you imagine that rubbish? I'm not against homosexuals. I think everygirl needs a gay boy friend. ;) They're a lot more open and honest than your girl friends are

    I was too busy staring at that Train Wreck lip job she had to even pay attention to half of the show.

  21. 21

    Re: Suzanne Browning – your a hateful piece of shit and obviously not all gays kill themselves because trust me their are plenty more out there then these teens..probably you too.. stfu and get over their are gays in the world and you saying gross things like that won't change it..

  22. 22

    I cried my eyes out watching that show. I must have walked out the room when she talked about the "rumors" I did remember Perez you were thinking he was gay. :S not cool..still love you though. Re: TrannyTakesATumble – why don't you do your research and look for the whole comment before calling it bullshit. I believed her story since…umm… I did my part to look for the whole comment. You know people cut people's statement.

  23. 23

    Good show but she showed ignorance about the possibility of he being gay. Funny how she was so quick to deny her son's alleged gayness but she outed her daughter right away.
    Her son was funny, caring for women and very artistic, he wanted to be a designer??? GAY HELLO!
    SAD he didn't see a way out.

  24. 24

    BTW, her facelift is alright but WTF happened to her lips?????????

  25. 25

    I'm not trying to add to the drama. But I went to FIDM with her son. And he was most definitely gay. Why is she covering this up in such trying times?

  26. 26

    i use to like marie osmond, but now i love her. she is so strong and courageous and real. in spite of all the drama, there is so much love in her life and in that family. it goes to show you that it is that love that matters, and sometimes even that cannot break through depression. but it is what will sustain them now that he is gone. wow. powerful woman, powerful stuff.

  27. 27

    Re: ParisIsBurning – Marie's lips are starting to look like Lisa Rinna. The Osmonds are phony.I feel sorry for the son but I don't like them.

    Re: MarioMonjack

    Great opportunity to clear something up presented by this Straight Supremacist bigot.

    Anne Heche, Julie Cipher, and Gavin Rosdale are all BISEXUALS … not Gay.
    They explored a same sex relationship - and then moved on to be with someone of the opposite sex.

    There are bisexuals who are in long term relationships with with members of the same sex.

    No gay person has ever become straight.
    No straight person has ever become gay.
    Only bisexuals can choose and drift between the two.
    The demons of hate like the person who left this post most like is
    someone who hates a part of themselves - the part that has a same sex attraction.

    Promoting Converrsion Therapy is HATE.

    She is an ass and liar.
    Her son was gay or bi.
    And the rejection from his family caused him to leap to his death.
    She is a demon.

    Re: Suzanne Browning

    I bet her daughter never even said it.
    Marie is a liar.
    No Mother should be up performing the DAY AFTER a child kills themselves.

    Re: tvmaven

    you love that she is lying about her dead son and how she helped drive him to suicide ???


  33. RJP3 says – reply to this


    Re: MAXXXmax

    because she is a straight supremacist

  34. 34

    Wow, some of you people really need to learn to read before you post anything. The daughter NEVER said all gays commit suicide. She said she was mad at the rumors, BECAUSE it IMPLIES that all gays commit suicide. Get it?

    But seriously, going back to work literally right after your son kills himself? WTF?? I also believe he was gay.

  35. 35

    Marie is lying. She must just feel really guilty about it all. He was their adopted son and he had issues with not knowing who his true parents were. He stated in an interview one time about not feeling he knew his true identity. After his death, the friends he had, came forward and stated that he was , in fact, a Homosexual. He also played in a band. Marie just needs to leave that alone. It was her son's life choice. Everyone makes their own choices. She should remember him and be proud of him instead of making excuses and deniles. Maybe he felt his confusion over everything in his life and just didn't want to deal with the 'DRAMA' anymore. Hollywood is a terrible place to be.
