Donny Osmond reveals his dark -- shaded, really--side

Donny Osmond reveals his dark -- shaded, really--side
Bergen co NJ Record 19Jun99 L5
By Elizabeth Llorente: Staff Writer

A thousand mostly die-hard Osmond fans thronged this week to the Bookends Bookstore in Ridgewood, New Jersey where Donny Osmond kicked off a national tour to promote his new book, "Life Is Just What You Make It: My Story So Far."

Nearly all those standing in line for hours were women, former teenyboppers who are now wives, mothers, executives. Waiting for Osmond to sign copies of his book, they turned into teenagers again.

The polite tone in Osmond's book has drawn criticism by some who expected an autobiography that would reveal a visit to a brothel or a secret battle with drugs.

"Some reporters say I wasn't scathing or revealing enough," Osmond said. "But that's not the book I set out to write. It's easy to point fingers at other people. In this book, I mostly point a finger at myself."
