Marie Osmond from 'The Talk' Recalls past False Report about Her Death That Made Her Daughter Worry a Lot

Marie Osmond, in the wake of Sunday's helicopter crash, recalled a time her daughter thought she was dead after seeing a false news report on the television. 

The untimely death of Kobe Bryant and eight other people in Sunday's fatal helicopter has led many to confront their mortality. For the singer turned TV personality, Marie Osmond, it means recalling a very unpleasant memory.

Osmond took a trip down memory lane, remembering how her daughter thought she was dead after seeing a fake news report. The latter stated that the singer had died from a plane crash.

At the time the news was circulating, the "Paper Roses" crooner was in an airplane. Her daughter — name withheld — saw the story and went into a worried frenzy, thinking her mother was dead.

The young woman tried calling Osmond, but her number kept ringing out. The singer wasn't aware of what was going on, and when she got off the aircraft,

"I saw that I had all these missed calls, and I thought something had happened, so I called her."

When the "The Talk" co-host's daughter picked the call, her first words were an elated "Mom; you're alive." It was this point that Osmond realized that she had been declared dead.           

Thankfully, the "Donny and Marie" star is still very much alive, and with her family. The TV personality was a mom to eight children, but the death of her son, Michael in 2010, brought the number down to seven.

Osmond believes that it was divine orchestration and meant to be.

Photos can look perfect, but did you know that everything isn’t perfect? 🙃 In fact everything is “perfectly imperfect!” We make perfect by our choices. So when I ran across this saying this week, I wanted to share it with you. 🤗 “Be happy, not because everything is good, but because you can see the good side of everything.” See the verb in front of the word “happy?” That little verb says it all… ”BE.” That’s our action, our thing... to just do it and choose to be happy. If it rains on your wedding day, be happy; if dinner doesn’t turn out, be happy, even if you don’t want to be happy… just choose to do it because you can make happy your default emotion. 😉👍 Sound too easy? Remember, it doesn’t take skill to see the good side of everything, it just takes practice! 😊 We live in a fallen world, where so much of the news is negative and then there’s social media... which seems to be filled with amazing trips, clean and tidy homes and well behaved toddlers—a harsh contrast to our lived in lives. Food presentation is beautiful, and no one goes to Home Depot dirty only to run into your boss from work. So with all that going on around you—if you find it’s a personal struggle to see the good side of things—it’s totally understandable. It takes practice to confront those negative thoughts and “choose” to look for the good side, but staying with it can make it become a positive habit. My Mom always said “Marie if you want to create a habit, or break a habit, you can do it in 30 days. Just be consistent for a month!” Our Heavenly Father does not walk around heaven sad and morose, He is filled with light and when we think of Him we will have that light also. 🥰 God is love and His light produces joy and happiness which will not leave room for any negative thoughts. Choose HAPPY and don’t let anyone or anything take it away from you!! Let me know how it goes... in a month! 😉 Right now, I choose to not stress perfection, have a messy house and share lots of happy memories with my grandkids 😁💋

The singer shares seven out of her children with her ex-husband, Brian Blosil. The former couple married in '86; they welcomed two biological children — Rachel and Matthew and adopted five — Jessica, Michael, Brandon, Brianna, and Abigail.

Osmond's first child, Stephen, is with her first husband, Stephen Lyle Craig. The two were married from '83 to '85, and interestingly, they remarried 26 years after their divorce.

The couple said their "I dos" again in 2011, in front of their family and friends. Osmond believes that it was divine orchestration and meant to be.

Much of the TV personality's life seems that way. Born as the only girl in a family of talented artists, the singer started from an early age to carve a niche for herself.

The mom-of-seven rose to fame alongside her brother, Donny, and they stayed a team for most of their lives. The two had a Las Vegas residency at the Flamingo Hotel for 11 years, ending in 2019.

Osmond grew up with sound family values and bonds and has held onto them through the years. It's the bedrock of who she is, and her number one go-to support system.
