Marie Osmond's son commits suicideYou've probably heard that Marie Osmond's son committed suicide on Friday evening by leaping off the balcony of his Los Angeles apartment.

'Entertainment Tonight' (weekdays, 7:30PM ET on CBS) reported on the tragedy, noting that 18-year-old Michael Blosil texted a friend and said he left a note for her on his bed.

It's just awful all the way around, but especially for this friend, who will live with the fact that she didn't get there in time to try and save him. Not that she could have, but it's going to haunt her for the rest of her life.

Lacey SchwimmerLeave it to Twitter to spoil 'Dancing With the Stars' before it even premieres.

This week, dancers Lacey Schwimmer and Jonathan Roberts took to the social networking site to announce that they will not be returning to fight for the mirrorball trophy when season 10 kicks off next month.

"Hey twitterbugs! I will not be doing DWTS this season," Schwimmer tweeted. "But be sure to tune in! <3"

Since she joined the show in 2008, Schwimmer has danced with Lance Bass, Steve-O and Mark Dacascos of 'Iron Chef America.' No word on whether the decision came from producers or was made on her own accord.

by Harley W. Lond, posted Feb 19th 2010 9:13PM
Marie Osmond revealed on 'The Rachael Ray Show' (weekdays, syndicated) that her oldest son ("He's 26, I had him when I was four," Osmond quipped) has been bitten by the entertainment bug.

He's very handsome, he's really talented," she told Ray. "He speaks Chinese and he was gonna be a lawyer. And I said you know, baby, you're good. So he actually wrote a song," which will be on Donny and Marie's next album -- their first in 29 years -- which is out in England and will arrive here later this year. What do they say about the apple not falling far from the tree?

Recap: Dancing with the Stars - Performance #9

by Michael Pascua, posted Nov 17th 2009 1:12AM
Joanna and Derek dance(S9E18) For the first time in Dancing with the Stars history, the semifinalists have to dance three dances. Fortunately, their third dance was the dance-off they've been practicing for weeks. For the Latin dances, each of the contestants have to do a solo.

With next week being the finals, all the contestants are stressed and more emotional than normal. There were a lot of tears being held tonight.

As the contestants walked down, I couldn't help but gawk at how beautiful Kym Johnson looked in her tango costume. Unfortunately for her, it will probably lead to her and Donny's downfall.

Another victim of the economy: Marie Osmond

by Brad Trechak, posted Aug 1st 2009 12:05PM
Marie OsmondPoor Marie Osmond. Apparently, her upcoming daytime talk show has been pulled already due to poor ad sales, despite being cleared on stations reaching 80% of the TV audience. It was going to be broadcast from Las Vegas where she and her brother Donny are performing nightly at the Flamingo Hotel as a result of selling their souls.

I guess that Dancing With The Stars career boost didn't really pay off. Or perhaps it was just unfortunate circumstances given how the economy is tanking. However, things are getting better and it's entirely possible that she'll be back in the talk show market in a few years.

I recognize that the Donny and Marie talk show lasted two seasons, but isn't that the franchise that most people recognize nowadays when then think of her (if they're of a certain age)? Her previous solo variety show in 1980 only lasted a year. Does she think that this talk show would last longer?

Loose lips? Swiveling hips? Donny's Dancing with the Stars

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 27th 2009 10:33AM
donnyThere seems to be an epidemic of blabbermouthing going around these days. First, Vice President Joe Biden's wife Jill lets it slip on Oprah that Joe had his choice of VP or Secretary of State (snap Hillary!), then Steve Martin reveals that he and Tina Fey will be presenting together at the Oscars (so much for secret presenters), now Donny's let the cat out of the bag.

While taping The Bonnie Hunt Show, Donny Osmond announced that he's doing Dancing With the Stars, the new edition that commences in March.

Oops! See, it wasn't Donny's job to make the announcement. He was supposed to let ABC decide the right time to reveal the lineup of celebrity dancers, although whether they can dance before the show begins is debatable.

Cybill Shepherd contemplates Dancing with the Stars

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 6th 2008 9:03AM
cybill shepherdThere's no doubt a run on Dancing with the Stars is a boost to careers. Just consider Marie Osmond; was anybody knocking on her door for work before she fainted in between the waltzes and sambas? Well, according to Cybill Shepherd, the producers of Dancing with the Stars want her to take part in the competition. Whether they want her or she's saying they want her to get some press, Cybill goes on to say that she could consider being a contestant on the uber-popular reality show, but only if she can find the time to devote to rehearsing.

Cybill has been busy acting of late. She's going to appear on PSYCH in July when the show comes back with new episodes, playing Shawn's mother. There's also a feature called Barry Munday. Seemingly, she could make room in her work schedule for Dancing, and she claims she's really good at it and has fielded offers from them, "I love ballroom dancing. I've been offered Dancing with the Stars and I'd love to do it. I'm sure I could do it. It's just a really hard training period and I just haven't had time to devote to that."

Who better to help select 'America's Favorite Mom' than Marie Osmond, singer/dancer/actress/entrepreneur/talk show host and mother of eight?

Osmond will co-hosts the NBC special (on the 100th anniversary of Mother's Day) with her brother Donny Osmond.

AOL TV's Kimberly Potts talked to the dancing diva about her upcoming return to the talk show wars, the siblings' Las Vegas variety extravaganza and even the Miley Cyrus scandal.

Would you watch a Marissa Jaret Winokur daily talk show?

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 17th 2008 2:03PM
Marissa Jaret WinokurOn the theory that it worked for another actress who play Tracy Turnblad, Marissa Jaret Winokur is going to star in her own daytime talk show, just like Ricki Lake before her. (Can Nikki Blonsky be next?)

Marissa J, who's currently spinning, twirling and trying to look graceful on Dancing With the Stars, will be developing a syndicated yakker (industry talk for talk show) for Sony Pictures Television. The fact that another company is also doing the same thing for Marie Osmond means one thing: producers think that if you can dance, you can talk. That's a show business axiom, isn't it? Her show, if it flies, will be for fall 2009.

Sony has dipped in syndication before with the Wayne Brady Show, which failed to click but did win the star a Daytime Emmy. Marissa is already an award winner, grabbing the 2003 Tony as Best Actress in a musical for playing Tracy in the Broadway version of Hairspray opposite Harvey Fierstein.

Paula Deen going into syndication

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 15th 2008 10:42AM
Paula DeenMove over, Rachael Ray! Another Food Network bird is straying for the nest to try her wings in syndication. Southern diva Paula Deen is readying a daytime cooking show for syndication in 2009. She also following Rachael's lead by not giving up her secure and lucrative connection to Food Network. Her Paula's Home Cooking and Paula's Party programs will remain Food Network staples.

The challenge for Paula will be coming up with a show that's not simply an echo of her other two shows. Unlike Rachael, who does a full-fledged talk show with a cooking segment, Paula's new effort is being called a "cooking" show. That could be limiting.

Marie Osmond to host new talk show

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Jan 31st 2008 9:00AM
Marie OsmondAbout two months ago, we learned that Donny and Marie Osmond were being considered for their own daytime talk show. One of the Osmonds will indeed host a talk show in the somewhat near future. Earlier this week, Marie, who recently appeared on Dancing with the Stars, announced that she will host her very own syndicated daytime talk show set to premiere in the fall of 2009.

This will not be Marie's first time as a host. If you recall, from 1998 to 2000, she co-hosted Donny & Marie with her brother, Donny Osmond.

It's a late '70s Osmond Family Christmas - VIDEO

by Richard Keller, posted Dec 23rd 2007 1:21PM

Get Donny & Marie a show right now, so they have time to prepare an Osmond Christmas specialWell, one of my Festivus wishes may be coming true after all. As we reported last week there are rumors that Donny & Marie (it is never Donny and Marie, always Donny & Marie) may be returning to television in perhaps a daytime talk show format or a reality program. My hope is that they shelve all of that and give us another variety show. And, if they can get it up in time, then we can have an Osmond Family Christmas.

Just like the one in this video, which seems to be from the latter (or last) season of the ABC variety show Donny & Marie. I probably remember these episodes the most because they featured every single Osmond that was still alive. In this example we see the Osmond Family band, including Jimmy on trumpet, Merrill on banjo, and Dad (may he rest in peace) on the bass guitar. We even get to see Marie play a little xylophone during the set.

AOL TV lists Top 5 television clips

by Kristin Sample, posted Dec 14th 2007 2:02PM
Britney at VMAsAOL TV listed the Top 5 TV Clips of the year today. Users went in and voted from the five categories and now the winners of these categories will compete for Top TV Moment of the 2007. You can even see how the votes were distributed over at AOL TV.

And the finalists are:
In Crybabies: Ellen DeGeneres's doggie drama
In Feuds: Rosie vs. Elisabeth on The View
In Shockers: Sabrina of the The Cheetah Girls being voted off Dancing with the Stars
In Spills: Marie Osmond fainting on Dancing with the Stars
In Trainwrecks: Britney on the VMAs

What did you think of these finalists? Here's my two cents. As for Ellen, Marie Osmond, and Miss Spears, I'm not surprised. As for the feud between Rosie and Elisabeth--I just don't get this one. I really don't see why anyone cares about what happens on The View. And the Cheetah Girl on DWTS--I didn't even know what a Cheetah Girl was until I saw her on the show so I wasn't too upset when she got the boot. Furthermore, I am appalled that The Sopranos finale didn't get any votes. That was a great TV moment and it got snubbed for Dancing with the Stars. Come on!

AOL TV will release the winner on December 19th. Make sure you go in and vote so your opinion counts. I hope Britney wins!
