From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Olive Marie Osmond (born October 13, 1959 in Ogden, Utah) is an American entertainer and a member of the show business family, The Osmonds.
The only daughter of George and Olive Osmond and the eighth of their nine children, Marie has released many albums and appeared on television for over 40 years. At age 13, her song "Paper Roses" reached #1 on the country music charts, making her the youngest female artist in history to top the chart. She has charted with her brother Donny ("I'm Leaving It All Up To You" and "Deep Purple"), Dan Seals ("Meet Me in Montana", also a country #1), and Paul Davis ("You're Still New to Me").
Other solo hits included "This is the Way That I Feel," "There's No Stopping Your Heart", "Read My Lips", and "I Only Wanted You". She and Donny also had a hit variety show, Donny & Marie (1976√1979).
Marie played her mother, Olive, in the TV movie Side by Side: The True Story of the Osmond Family. She also starred in the TV movies The Gift of Love and I Married Wyatt Earp. She garnered rave reviews as Anna in the Broadway musicals The King and I and Maria in The Sound of Music in the mid-1990s. She returned to television with brother Donny in 1998 to cohost The Donny and Marie Show, a talk/entertainment show that lasted two seasons.
She appeared as herself in the 2001 TV movie Inside the Osmonds, which showed how the brothers' egos, their father's fiscal mismanagement, and the family's quest to build a multimedia empire led to their downfall. The film was produced by Jimmy Osmond.
Marie has eight children. She had one son with her first husband (Steve Craig), two children with her second husband, and adopted five other children.
Perhaps the only dent in her squeaky-clean image is her divorce from her first husband after two years of marriage in 1985. Her religion, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, discourages divorce. She married her second husband, Brian Blosil, on October 28, 1986.
In October 1999, she disclosed that she suffered from severe postpartum depression following the birth of her son. She became so despondent that she left her family and planned never to return. She eventually returned to her family and shared her postpartum experiences with other women. In 2005, Marie spoke out in support of Brooke Shields after Tom Cruise attacked Brooke's use of pharmaceuticals to treat her postpartum depression.
In early August 2005, a fire destroyed the garage and office of her Utah home; no one was injured in the blaze.
Currently, Marie hosts her own radio show, Marie and Friends, a nationally syndicated program. Along with actor John Schneider, Marie is the co-founder of Children's Miracle Network.
She is a regular on QVC where her "Marie Osmond Fine Porcelain Collector Dolls" is the top-selling line. Marie has launched her own embroidery machine, sewing machine, and embroidery designs through Bernina. She has recently been featured on the cover of Designs in Machine Embroidery], a national magazine for machine embroidery enthusiasts. The cover article featured an interview with Marie where she discussed how she became involved in embroidery.
