He gets it from his mother. I saw his Mom doing a guest satellite appearance on the Dr. Oz show the other day...and the first thing that came to mind was that she still looks unstable....this incident isn't going to help that any....

There is absolutely NOTHING sadder than suicide. Suicidal people have no idea how much they hurt their loved ones when they opt to end their lives.

not to be too crass, but is this the same son she drones on about that 'begged' her to 'get healthy,be here for your family'etc.? That'd be alil weird.....
Apparently he didn't follow the koenig story.....?

What an awful way to die! How tragic. I feel so sorry for her. It is just devastating. It is so wrong to push children into show business. That is what happened to Marie and Michael Jackson and their siblings. I worry about MJ's kids when they grow up and realize how cruelly the world treated their dad. The world made his life a living hell.

Of course the evil freaks come on here and find joy in this woman losing her son. I feel sorry for anyone who loses their child to suicide. Praying for the Osmonds.

and her other daughter is a lesbian, how the Mormon church must weep that their #1 family is so f'd up...

The son though he had no other choices, that's the sad part, he couldn't turn to his parents or church - that's a crime. I weep for the boy, not the parents.
