According to the Las Vegas Sun, Marie is eager to get back on stage -- with her Vegas manager saying she finds the process "cathartic."

The duo will also perform from April 13-17th to make up for the six shows they canceled after Michael's suicide.

I agree. How long is appropriate for her to take off? What should they do? Walk around their house moaning? She'll have taken off almost two weeks. The kids will need to go back to school.

Any psychologist will tell you that young children and adolescents grieving need normalcy. They need to (1) understand their Mom is okay and they are safe, (2) understand they're not to blame for what happened, and (3) return to familiar routines that give them comfort.

Marie is doing exactly what grief specialists say to do. Some people commenting here are judgmental idiots.

Wow for him to have such a big family and feel so alone,how sad, I see why now, why jumping off a building was better. She's a performer first, then a mom and I use that term loosely!

I agree, that is the problem. She is NOT there for her kids. If she would have been around more maybe he would still be here.

Remarkable how many ignorant responses can be found at TMZ. Every one grieves in their own way. Being busy working for 90 min. 5 nights a week can be therapeutic to occupy your mind for a few minutes. Marie adores all her children & spends a lot of time with them. Michael had graduated high school with good grades while in Vegas with Marie, then he went off for college like most other kids. She drove to L.A. a lot to visit with him - was she supposed to move in with him?? Did your mom move in with you when you went off to college? She did all she could to get him the help he needed but in the end, he made a bad, heartbreaking choice.

Marie would be of no use to herself or her other children if she just sat down & cried for the rest of her life over all this. She has been off work since his death & I'm sure there has been plenty of crying in private & with her kids. When she did her various jobs & touring over the years she brought her kids with her so they could be with her.

Heaven help all your judgmental attitudes - you don't how someone is feeling unless you walk in their shoes.

Money can't buy you the best mother. And famous people are not the best role models. Money is their Crack. Fame is their Righteousness. Everything else is second nature.
Things like this will happen to more celebrities in the not to distant future, just watch.

The tragedy to this story is she is responsible for 7 other kids, who she might very well screw up too.

Such a tragedy.

Everyone needs to grieve in THEIR OWN WAY.
If this is Marie's way....then it is the right thing to do.

She is in enough pain without the hurtful remarks and speculation about her love for her son.

Many people have no mother...or terrible mothers and they don't kill themselves. It's not about what Marie did or didn't do. He probably suffered chemical imbalances or mood disorders.
If someone wants to end their life...chances are they will accomplish it at some point, regardless of the love, care and concern anyone has for them.

It is NOT Marie's fault this child killed himself. She gave him love and did the best she could trying to keep her children's lives private. Blame Larry King for outed the child in 2007 when he was in rehab. That put the spotlight on a depressed child. Larry King is the demon here, not Marie.

pretty sad that she wants to go back to work so quickly..its all about money to these people....they have to rush back to work because as lame as they are a few bums and winos might show up to see them and if they do not perform the partridge family is waiting in the wings to take over their show..she should be ashamed of herself....how can she sleep at night knowing it was her inattention that caused that boy to swan dive off of a 30 story building..

I'm no fan of Marie or Donny. I don't think Marie is hurting for money. You would think she would take some time to deal with this...with that said, maybe this is her way of dealing. I'm sure she's having a hard time off stage.
