Osmond Army Invades Chicago

11/10/2007 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Various Osmonds assembled at a Chicago airport, where the nearly 100 of them took up most of a terminal. Security!


The grieving group is gathering for the funeral of Osmond family patriarch, George, who passed away Tuesday at the age of 90. Services were held Friday in Utah.

Fantabulously done    

The Osmonds are awesome people and full of life - get over it! SAPS!
It's what's inside that counts. Perfection? Not !
You can't get that kind of love in one family in most US families these days.
The world is a better place because of them.
Touche to Oprah!
Celebrate good times come on!

A lot of people are jealous of the Osmond family but I think it is more envy. Wouldn't you like to have a close nit supported family. As for the great number of Osmonds, so what, they are human they all try to do their best. As for being Mormon, at least they believe in something positive and they practice what they preach.
About their father dying. When someone has lived a full life and has that many years why not celebrate it. It is sad but the Osmonds are concentrating on what their dad gave and not what was taken away. They wanted their father with their mother.
A lot of divorcing women should take a tip from Marie and get on with lives and be busy and do something positive.

People, NO ONE thinks they are better just because they have more kids than the next guy - where do you get that? They just have a greater appreciation for fun is all. How boring to come from a family with only 1 or no other siblings, can't think of anything more boring. Big families rock and this world is not overpopulated. The best city in the world is New York City. Have you ever flown across this country and seen from the air how little this country is populated. There is hardly anyone down there from the air! Get off your high horse and into an airplane for a birdseye view of how populated we are.

Oh for crying out loud. Grow up will you? If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all/ Who cares if they're Mormons, how many kids they have or if they did Oprah instead of grieving at Fathers grave? I grew up with their music and I thank them for the wonderful music and memories through the years. I had the wonderful opportunity of meeting them all except for the Mother and the three older brothers. After meeting them it's easy to see why we've all fallen of love with them all these years. They put you right at ease right away. As nervous as you are they calm you down right away. They set a great example for the rest of the Show Business world.

I enjoyed watching Marie Osmond on Dancing with the stars. I live them because they are clean cut family. It sad if you don't look like trash you are consider a freak. That why there are so many screwed up kids in this world. They have no morals and no respect. o i am not a mormon though I don't believe in the faith. I respect them. Their are lots of regilons that i don't believe in but everyone has the right to pick what they believe in.

Hey idiots at TMZ, the 100 Osmonds gathered in Chicago for the Oprah show.

Below is the real story.

The Osmond family—who has been entertaining us for 50 years—is an amazing musical legacy started by one extraordinary couple. George and Olive Osmond had nine children, who then had 55 children, who then had 48 kids of their own!

Sadly, the patriarch of the Osmond family passed away on November 6, 2007. George Osmond Sr. was 90 years old.

More than 100 Osmonds had already been invited to appear on The Oprah Show, and the family decided that it was important for the show to go on. "Donny called us to say the family would be here and that this show would be in honor of their dad," Oprah says. "He also told us that they wanted this show to be a celebration of the life of his dad, so they're here today to take us on a once-in-a-lifetime trip down memory lane."

Very odd timing...the funeral in Utah and the appearance on Oprah with the whole clan. It really seemed like the Osmands were taking advantage of the situation to promote their reunion tour and Marie's stint on Dancing with the Stars. Get the money while it's hot , Mormon or not!!!

I hate k fed    

Rarely mentioned is the fact that they are Mormans. Why is Oprah concerned who wins 'dancing with the stars'? Oprah is getting so STAR concerned. With Mrs. Seinfelds 'stolen' cookbook, etc. I voted for Marie, but won't again. For heavens sakes, Marie and Donny used FATHERS funeral as publicity to help her win? DISGUSTING....

These sappy people are washed up has beens that are milking the hell out of Marie's dance contest. I think they are the most boring people in the world. I wish the dance thing would end so they would go away.
