The Oprah show was very emotional yesterday. It was the first interview with the star since Marie Osmond’s son’s suicide. We knew the public details, but she opened up about how it affected her personally. Get the full story with more photos and videos below.
Both her and her adopted son have battled with depression throughout their lives and have tried to help each others. We heard more of the mother’s journey since his tragic death.
The woman who became well known for her show with brother Donny, talked in detail about Michael Blosil’s life, death and her life since. For Marie Osmond, her son’s suicide has changed her life forever.
“I’ve been through some tough things in my life, Oprah. This is probably the hardest thing I’ve been through.”
He was 18 when he died by jumping out of his 8th floor apartment. He had struggled with drugs, depression and loneliness and had attempted ending his life when he was 16. For his adoptive mother this made her think back of when she had struggled with similar issues. They tried to get through the tough parts of life together, but apparently it was all too much for him.
One big question the talk show host asked was if the mother was still in the “what-if” stage. Her response was:
“I think, there’s always ‘what ifs – ‘What if I had just put him on a plane and said, “Come be with me?” ‘ Or gone there? I think if you live in what ifs, you stop living.”
It was a very moving interview. You can catch some of the highlights in the video below and at Radar Online. For Marie Osmond, son’s suicide was very sad and she will probably be trying to get over it for the rest of her life. What did you think about her talk with Oprah?
