marie osmond's 20+ year marriage to [doesn't matter what name i put here because he's not famous] has ended in divorce, which is really tricky when you're mormon i'll bet. the ex-couple have eight children and this is marie's second divorce. in a joint statement, they stated there is no third party involved and that everything is amicable blah blah blah. they also ask "the public and press to respect our privacy in the matter" which is hard not to do when there is no dirt to be had regarding the split such as denise richards or tommy lee being involved in some way. if marie were just a skootch more holier than thou, i'd rip her a new one. but don't count me as sad for her at all. she still has her doll empire, which by the way those dolls freak me the fuck out. if you must buy one of them, go for the terrifyingly bug eyed adora belle, because some of the proceeds go to breast cancer charities.
