Marie Osmond on Michael Jackson; Relates to Alleged Victims 'it's a plague'
Monday on "The Talk," guest co-host Marie Osmond shares personal thoughts on the recent Michael Jackson child molestation allegations. "I knew Michael. I grew up with that family, it was the Osmonds and the Jacksons. The Michael that I knew, I can't imagine that he would ever do that, and it breaks my heart. Whether it's true or not, I wish he were here to say something. But the thing that I do believe, when you have been abused, I was told to shut up as a child, and I never said a thing until I had massive postpartum depression, and I was almost 40. And so it's very important that you give it validation, that little child in you that's been hurt, you need to talk about it. So I don't know if they felt pressure to not to say anything; I don't know if they're saying things now, all I know is that it's a plague, and it needs to stop."
