Ever since the suicide of Marie Osmond's 18-year-old son, Michael, the devastated star has been keeping a low profile, refusing interview requests but still keeping her performing commitments in Las Vegas. Sources tell me Marie is trying to take care of her own demons and begin the process of healing.
"There have been many nights when her show in Vegas has had to be delayed because Marie was crying," a source close to her Vegas show tells me. "It's heart-wrenching to see her consumed with so much pain and guilt and know there is nothing you can do but let a mother grieve the loss of her son. Marie beats herself up about what has happened and, like other mothers whose child took their own life, wonders what she could have done differently. However, Marie is one of the most resilient women you will ever meet; she will survive."
