Maybe she's a "wack job" because of all the pressure she's under to project a certain image.
Her reality is nothing like yours or mine, and some are able to handle the pressure better than others.
At one time, I read that Donny Osmond suffered from severe anxiety and debilitating phobias.
I can see why. Regular life is full of enough pressures as it is. People like the Osmond's are under intense pressure to be what the public expects them to be. So if they show they are human, they get criticized big time.
They have big egos, so this is very difficult for them.The egos are developed from all the people hanging around and fawning over them, telling them how great they are.To live that life is difficult, because they get to believing it and when they can't keep up with it, they suffer emotional problems.
Others can say they chose it and can drop out if they like, but they have been in this way for so many years, it is ingrained in them and would be very difficult if not next to impossible to be any other way.
They have a lot of advantages due to their wealth and fame, but also a lot of pitfalls.
I don't think Marie is wack out, I think society has cut them and her from the herd so to speak. Where they can't do beans like we civilians can do. How does a person function in life with people putting a camera up your fanny all the time. Than putting it on the news so to speak. Money is nothing if people keep getting in your face and you don't have the freedom to enjoy it like the rest of us do. I can go here, I can go there, I can go anywhere and do anything I please in my life. Somethings money can't buy! A fresh curvey black top road that runs 300 miles, fall time sunshine, a smooth running bike in which to enjoy it, that's a slice of heaven.

I think theres alot of truth in that, and especially for the osmonds where were born performing, hit it big in their teens and twenties, and died with disco. One minute you're who's who, and the next minute you're a joke and the limosine stops showing up.

I think one of the reasons I do respect donny is he struggled with it, and then came to terms with it. Marie is still a hottie imo, but I personally struggle a bit with people who are overly "effected" for lack of a better terms.

You're right.

And I don't think Marie is a "wack job", just using the formerly quoted terminology.
