Marie Osmond remembers one of the last conversations she had with her 18-year-old son Michael Bryan.
"When I heard him say to me, I have no friends, it brought back when I went through depression because you really feel so alone," Osmond, 51, says on Thursday's The Oprah Winfrey Show. "I'm not a depressed person, but I understand that place, that darkness.
"I told him … Mike, I'm gonna be there Monday and it's gonna be okay," she continues. "But depression doesn't wait till Monday."

For Michael Jackson's mother Katherine, the saying "time heals all wounds" simply does not apply.
"I don't think I'll ever be healed," the Jackson matriarch told Oprah Winfrey on her show Monday. "It will get better, but some days it's like it just happened."
June 25, 2009, the day of her son's death, was "the worst day of my life," she says, adding that she thinks about Michael, "all through the day, all the time."

Nothing like a cozy little camping trip to get rumors of romance flying again!
Oprah Winfrey and best friend Gayle King, long the subject of speculation that they might be a couple, saw the humor in their situation on a recent camping trip, even joking about their sleeping arrangements in footage broadcast Wednesday on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
As the friends prepared to spend the night in a small pop-up camper, Winfrey, 56, said: "Gayle, want to go in first?" To which King, 55, replied with a smile: "Why don't you just add to that lesbian rumor?"

Oprah Winfrey has some rules for her upcoming OWN network.
Look for "fun and entertainment without tearing people down and," she stresses, "calling them bitches."
Not exactly an outright ban on the b-word – but close.
"Imagine that. Imagine," she said in a speech this week at the Women's Conference in California, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

When Oprah Winfrey called all Twilight fans in April to submit stories about how the hit supernatural series changed their lives, Maria Mele knew she had to e-mail the daytime talk show host.
Unfortunately, the super fan didn't get the response she hoped for – tickets to attend the taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show where Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Dakota Fanning would all be. So, she settled for being interviewed by Winfrey via Skype.
Turns out, she got something even better than a seat inside Harpo Studios: Robert Pattinson at her doorstep.

As the realization sinks in that, after a quarter of a century, Oprah Winfrey will be ending her syndicated talk show Sept. 9, 2011 – a decision she intends to explain on her program Friday – rivals, admirers and industry analysts are chiming in with their reactions.
As with most things Oprah, there's admiration mixed with a sense of awe.
Martha Stewart, attending Diddy's 40th birthday bash at New York's Plaza Hotel Thursday night (the news about Winfrey had broken late that afternoon), pointed out that Oprah was not retiring.
"She'll do another show," said the domestic diva, 68. "She's evolving. She's fabulous."
