NASHVILLE.COM EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Marie and Donny. Sound weird? That’s only because the brother/sister Osmond family singing sensations have always been billed as: Donny and Marie. (Donny likes it that way.) They’ve been performing for almost half a century together, first as children with the singing “Osmond Brothers” act, then as teenagers they hosted their own variety TV series, Donny & Marie (1976-79); they jointly hosted a daytime TV talk show (1998 – 2000), and since 2008 they’ve been appearing together at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas – after many years of doing other things without each other (Marie has been selling her doll collection on QVC for 20 years, acted on Broadway, had a few solo and duet hit singles; Donny hosted the TV game show Pyramid (2002-2004), acted on Broadway, had a few solo hit singles … well, you get the picture). Oh, and they came in No. 1 and 3 respectively on the hit ABC reality/variety television dancing contest Dancing With the Stars (more about that later).
