Monday on "The Talk" Marie Osmond opens up for the first time about her son, Michael, being bullied before taking his own life. "I have never spoken about this before. So, my son who died, he was bullied. He was bullied very heavily up until the time he committed suicide because of his sobriety," reveals Osmond. "I've got the texts. I mean they are horrendous and I never took action against it. But, I can tell you, honestly, I believe that that was a big component in him just feeling overwhelmed and that he didn't fit in. I never took action against the three kids. I know who they are. But maybe it's not a bad idea to have some kind of consequence because it's getting out of hand." Guest co-host Rumer Willis also shares, "I got bullied very, very badly in school when I was younger, very badly. And I truly don't know what would have happened to me if I grew up right now. The issue is the systemic bullying, especially [on] social media."
