Pop culture icon and talk show host Marie Osmond reflects on one of the darkest periods of her life, dealing with her son Michael's suicide, in her new book The Key Is Love. People quotes her heart wrenching memory.
About six months before Michael died, during a "Meet 'n Greet" after my Vegas show, a woman gave me a hug and said, "Oh, Marie. You've been through depression, divorce, kids in rehab . . . What haven't you been through?" I answered, "I haven't lost a child. That would be the worst thing."
On February 26, 2010 the "worst thing" happened. My sweet son left me, his family, and friends by jumping from the balcony of his eighth floor college apartment in Los Angeles. Even as I write this I want to cry out, "Please, don't let this be true." READ MORE

Who can remember a time when Marie Osmond wasn't a star? The bubbly performer has been on stage practically her entire life. She's also had to endure many triumphs and tragedies in the public eye. Today Osmond is back with a new Hallmark Channel talk show, Marie. Here's what she revealed to our pals at Zap2it about her second chance at talk show fame:
"I was going to do this about five years ago," Osmond tells Zap2it of the new series. "We had 97 percent of the market syndicated and ready to go, and then all financing fell through. And so this is kind of like a second chance, which is interesting, because those are the things that I want to talk about -- second chances. It's like when I did 'Dancing With the Stars' ... . I was going through a divorce and everything else, and I was out there to tell women, 'No -- your life doesn't stop at 45. Life is beautiful. Life has challenges.' That's the thing. You pick yourself back up and you go for it." READ MORE
