enough with the osmonds: part II (spooky)

A few days ago, I wrote a post about The Osmonds. Which is weird because I maybe have mentioned the Osmonds three times my entire lifetime until Marie got on Dancing with the Stars. Well for some reason that post did something weird. It disappeared, then reappeared only to be in pieces, then I finished the parts that went away, posted it and it appeared to be in pieces again. I took that as a hint and deleted. Or is was the spirit of their parents now passed  — may they rest in piece — trying to stop me from saying Donny Osmond is kind of a douche.

I’m not a huge fan of this family. I’ve just always thought it was odd yet strangely pleasant that such a big family existed, seemingly in harmony. I’m an only child brat. The post I tried to publish on here was going after the fact that Donny Osmond is an attention whore. Bless him. He seems like a good enough guy but for the love of Pete, why is he on every day on some show or another hanging on the coat tails of his sister’s Dancing with the Stars  stint? I guess Marie is kind of doing the same thing, but she IS legitimately on a show people watch and it’s a program that gets mad ratings. Her brother is just hanging around like a pathetic shadow. I’m sure even the queen of nice has to get a little tired of it.

Why don’t “celebrities” just admit when their jig is up? Marie has some staying power I guess. She has some major fans on that show. I mean for someone of her age and not so awesome dancing skills (certain dances work for her — but only a few) to still be on the show this late in the game, she would HAVE to have some major fans.

OK. I’m talking about that damn show again and I swore I wouldn’t unless something interesting happened. Other than the fact that the show is cursed (parents seem to die a lot and people fall a lot or pass out or get food poisoning), nothing is interesting enough to warrant a WHOLE post. And neither is the fact that Donny is an entertainment television appearance junkie. But I guess I just had to say something because it annoyed me. Nothing to see here.
