Osmond Back On Stage After Health Scare
MARIE OSMOND is back onstage in Las Vegas days after an allergic reaction to shellfish left brother DONNY fearing the worst.
The brother and sister act had to cancel their show at the Flamingo on Friday night (09May09) after Donny insisted his sibling was too ill to perform.
He says, "I walked in (to her dressing room)... and I've never seen Marie like this before. I had never seen a face so grey.
"I saw her on the ground with everybody holding her; there was just no blood in her face. I immediately walked outta the room, went to our stage manager and said, 'The show is cancelled.' And I kicked everybody out of the room."
Donny tells U.S. news show, "I held Marie in my arms and I said, 'You know what, you've got the night off.'"
A medicated Marie was back on stage on Saturday (10May09), telling fans all about her health scare.
She said, "Last night was the first night we cancelled. My fault - I guess I'm allergic to shellfish... I'm OK, I guess I won't be eating shellfish for a while, like the rest of my life."
