Unauthorised Biography Claims Osmond Attempted Suicide

A shocking new biography claims Marie Osmond suffered mental illness as a child and attempted suicide. Randy Jernigan's expose also alleges Osmond lied about being abused as a child; suffered an eating disorder as a teen; lost her virginity at the age of 17 to late singer Andy Gibb; and split from her basketball player ex-husband Stephen Craig when she caught him naked in a hot tub with her personal assistant. Jernigan's Marie Osmond: An Unauthorised Biography - out this summer (08) - alleges Osmond made up the child abuse claims after editors asked her to "juice up" her 2001 autobiography. He tells America's Star magazine, "It wasn't true. She made it up, according to a lot of people I have spoken to. To this day, Marie has never explained what the actual abuse was." Osmond's spokeswoman failed to respond to WENN's enquiries.

this article in my opinion is just total hogwash. I don't believe for 1 minute that Marie attempted suicide. Nor do I believe she lost her virginity at 17 to Andy Gibb. As far as Marie having a eatting disorder as a teen, well, that could be true. I noticed as a teen myself how every season of the Donny and Marie show, that Marie was getting thinner and thinner. She looked anorexic by last season. But I have seen Marie on talk shows saying the Higher up's from her show were constantly on her back about losing weight and never being thin enough and if she didnt lose more weight the show would be cancelled. Thats a heavy burden to place on a teenage girl. I don't understand why these so called authors are hell bent on taking celebrity reputations and destroying them. Marie has always been referred to as America's sweetheart. The perfect image of the sweet all american, girl next door. She was my role model growing up and I resent her memory being trashed. WHen you trash a wonderful memory for millions of people just to make a buck, well its just plain wrong. I refuse to believe it. Marie is a Mormon, a devote Mormon. I don't think her parents or the church or her upbringing would have allowed such things to happen to her. I won't be buying this book

Who is this Randy Jernigan anyway? If it is "unauthorized" it's trash as far as I am concerned. I have no doubt it is a pack of lies. I love and admire Marie for her strength and authenticity. Stand strong Marie - we love you!

This book is on hold, I guess. The writer admited some of the info was wrong. He didn't say which, but I'm guessing the nasty stuff.
