Being in one of America’s most popular musical families sure has paid off for Marie Osmond. But while co-hosting daytime talk show The Talk in 2020, the entertainer made a surprising announcement about what she plans to do with her considerable wealth. And it’s fair to say that her kids probably aren’t on board!
Making the decision
Osmond explained that she’d come to this particular decision alongside Steve Craig – the man she’s walked down the aisle with not just once but twice. The pair have a son called Stephen from their first marriage in the mid-1980s. Though their agreement also affects the six kids she has with another ex-husband.
Osmond said “I do” to Brian Blosil in 1986 – just a year after divorcing Craig. And the couple went on to have daughters Jessica, Rachael, Brianna and Abigail and sons Brandon, Matthew and Michael before splitting in 2007. Tragically, the latter died three years later at just 18 years old.
Her costars disagreed
We aren’t yet sure what Osmond and Craig’s offspring think about the matter, though we do know the thoughts of several of the former’s old colleagues. Yes, during the same episode Sharon Osbourne took umbrage with her The Talk co-host’s future financial plans. Sheryl Underwood also made her feelings crystal clear, telling Osmond, “I disagree with that.”
Marie Osmond's net worth
So, how much is Osmond worth exactly? Well, according to Celebrity Net Worth, the entertainer has an impressive $20 million in the bank. That’s perhaps little surprise considering she’s been a part of the fame game for almost half a century! Although Osmond isn’t afraid to splash the cash, either.
