In her first interview since her 18-year-old son, Michael Blosil, committed suicide, Marie Osmond opened up about his struggle with depression, drugs, and his sexuality.

"My son was not gay," Osmond told Oprah Winfrey in an interview scheduled to air on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" today. "He wanted to be married and have a family and travel all over the world. And it wouldn't matter if he was. I have a daughter who is gay, and it was my daughter who was offended by it, like, 'What? All gay kids commit suicide?' She really wanted it cleared up."
