My Revue on Marie Osmonds Book Might As Well Laugh About It Now!

If you like Marie Osmond this is a book to read. I grew up watching the Donny & Marie show, I use to buy her music and Donny's. This book is awesome to have and read. I got lucky and found this book at a thrift store to buy. Here is a little bit about the  book.

She talks about when she was three when she started to sing. This was when the Osmond brothers has just started to sing together. At this age she was going on the road with the family from show to show.

The two oldest brothers are deaf. The doctor wanted her parents to put them in a institution but her mother would not hear of this. Her mom taught them sign language and how to hear the beat of the music herself. The whole family learned how to talk to the boys with sign language.

When she was young she was having a weight problem. She was a chubby girl and she never did like this. It didn't help that her mom always had fudgesicles in the house. She had that problem when she got older and she had to lose weight for the Donny & Marie show. The way she did that was not eating but telling the family that she already had eaten.

I remember the very first Donny & Marie show. I would always watch it with my parents. I thought at the time this was the most awesome show. She does talk about the show in her book. 

She was married four times but two of the four times was to her first husband. She has eight children: one biological with her first husband, with second her husband two biological and adopted five children.

In order to get to certain events she had to fake dinners. By this she is talking about getting frozen meals and heating them up for the kids. Sometimes she had to ask people to hold seats for her and the family at one of the children's concerts because she was running late. Believe me I know what she was going through and I only have three kids to try to do this with.

She was on Dancing With The Stars for season five. She did have a hard schedule for the show with being a single mom at the time. In one episode she did collapse while talking to the judges. Marie, Mel B, Jennie Garth and Jane Seymour took their barbie style dolls and made a video call "Dancing With The Starved". Marie did this because she didn't know how to ballroom dance she only knew basic tap dances and some moves for Saturday Night Fever.

She was very close to her mom and when her mom passed away on Mother's Day. She felt like she had lost her best friend. She always went to her mom for advise and when she needed advise and her mom was not there for her she was lost. When Marie started her doll collection the first doll she made was the Olive doll and named after her mom. The Osmond's are a very close family, they are always there for each other. Olive passed away 2004 and George passed away in 2007.

She did have a bought with depression for awhile but has come over that. Then she had a problem again with her weight and her oldest son talked to her about it and that is when she went on Nutrisystem. Her son said that the children wanted her to be around for their children.

There is a lot more in the book but I do not want to put everything on here. This is a book to read and it is very good. I am going to leave you with a clip of the first Donny & Marie show. Please feel free to leave any comments!♥
