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."

Nearly three months after her son Michael's suicide, Marie Osmond is "doing great," her brother Donny says.
"She needed to get away and just take care of her own demons in her own mind and begin this process of repairing," he tells Entertainment Tonight in an interview scheduled to air Wednesday. "Marie is a strong woman but she's going to collapse – and she did."
Osmond's son, Michael Bryan, died on Feb. 26 after jumping from the balcony of his Los Angeles apartment. Since his death, Osmond and her brother have returned to the stage, performing their Las Vegas variety show.

Michael Bryan, 18, had no drugs in his system at the time he jumped to his death on Feb. 26 from the eighth-floor balcony of his L.A. apartment.

At the funeral for Michael Bryan, Marie Osmond's 18-year-old adopted son who had committed suicide, there was one family member noticeably absent: the teenager's father, Brian Blosil.
Michael had grown estranged from his father in recent years to the point he had petitioned to legally change his last name from "Blosil" to "Bryan."
"My relationship with my father while I lived at [home] was extremely strained," Michael wrote in an Aug. 28, 2009, petition for a name change with the Utah Country Court. "At the present time, I have no relationship with my father and have no desire to continue to carry his last name."

Donny and Marie Osmond have cancelled their remaining shows at the Flamingo Las Vegas this week.
"She needs to spend more time with her family," her rep, Alan Nierob, tells PEOPLE. "She's still processing everything and it's really rough on her."
Osmond returned to the stage March 9, following funeral services for her son, Michael Bryan. During that first show, she and Donny were greeted by a standing ovation, and Marie told the crowd, "The way Osmonds survive is we keep singing. "That's what we want to do tonight. I know my son would want that and this show is for him."
The Osmonds are expected to resume performances on March 23, a rep for the hotel confirms.

A day after laying to rest her 18-year-old son, Michael Bryan, and less than two weeks after putting her Las Vegas show on hold, Marie Osmond takes the stage Tuesday night for a sold-out Donny & Marie show.
"It is important for Marie and her children to get back to a routine that is comfortable for all of them and be together as much as possible," a close friend tells PEOPLE. "They're all together and doing their best to return to work and school."
All 720 tickets for the show at the Flamingo Las Vegas were snapped up. The hit show took a temporary break after Michael committed suicide on Feb. 26 in Los Angeles.

Marie Osmond had not planned to speak at her son Michael Bryan's funeral.
But as the service drew near an end Monday afternoon, she stood and addressed hundreds of mourners at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Chapel in Provo, Utah, who included her show business brothers, seven surviving children, and one unexpected invited guest: the biological mother of Michael, who was adopted.
"I'd just like to say thank you to everybody," she said. "As you see I have amazing support from great men, my family, my brothers. God was very wise when he put me into a family with honorable men because they have served as examples for my children."
