Donny Osmond: Joan Collins Pawed My Bod
National Enquirer 19Apr00 A2

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- If you can believe the National Enquirer, Donny Osmond is claiming that "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" co-star Joan Collins made a play for him while filming the recently released video version of Osmond's popular stage show. Osmond reportedly told reporters recently that Collins "Pawed his bod" during rehersals for the film.

But Joan denies the claim, laughing at the thought, "The darling boy flatters himself. Yes, I was a bit vampy, but not trampy. If I want a man for real, that kind of thing goes on in private, not during rehearsals with dozens of people gawking at you." Collins was playing the part of Potiphar's wife, which requires her to act like she is seducing Joseph, the part Osmond played.

In spite of Collins' denials, many who were on the set claim that Joan's advances looked real. They say that the 66-year-old 'couldn't keep her hands off Donny.' One of those present said, "One scene called for Joan's character to take Donny's clothes off -- but she kept doing it wrong time after time." And Donny reportedly described it as "She was blowing in my ear, rubbing my chest, taking my clothes off, and I thought, 'I'm glad my wife isn't watching this.' "

The 42-year-old Osmond has been happily married for 21 years. For most observers, the question will simply boil down to which questionable source you believe, Collins, or the National Enquirer.
