Jessica Osmond

Don't know if you heard, read etc, about Jessica Osmond, but Marie's eldest daughter is gay.

All I can say is God love her. Most of us in this world are not famous. When we have family issues, personal issues, lovelife issues etc., we don't have The Enquirer or some other gossip rag camping out in our front yard just waiting for the moment to snap your picture to capture your vulnerability, pain and oh yeah, the big bucks they will make off the photo.

As I read through a couple of articles online, I saw the headline, "Jessica Osmond looks like a truck driving, paunchy Betty Suarez! (Ugly Betty). Yowza....that has got to sting. I can't imagine when I was going through my metamorphisis to have all of my angst and pain splattered all over the press for people to devour.

Even now, so many years after the fact, I am still consumed with guilt and other personal feelings that remain prisoner in my psyche. I deal with it and do the best I can; all without a blinding spotlight following my every thought and or move.


Jessica has a famous mother. Her family are the most famous Mormons on the planet. Her family is extremely religious. Her family is extremely famous...have I mentioned that?



God bless.

I truly don't understand your logic or religion, but I will defend your right to have your say.

p.s. spell check is a good thing.
