Marie Osmond shared an incredible story during her latest appearance on Watch What Happens Live. She told Andy Cohen about the time her father, George Osmond, received a check for $5,000 from Frank Sinatra! Frank accidentally cursed in front of a young Marie and sent the check as an apology.
Marie said, “Well, [Frank] was with about 20 of his guys and they were all cursing. My dad said, ‘Do you mind keeping it down?’ And [Frank] snapped his fingers and left. My dad was thinking oh my gosh, I just offended him. And the next day he had a check on the couch for $5,000 apologizing.”

Marie once admitted, “I wasn’t a normal child. But I grew up with teachers like Frank Sinatra. Sammy Davis Jr. taught me how to walk on stage. Lucille Ball taught me about lighting. Cyd Charisse taught me how to move and Debbie Reynolds — well, what’s not to love?”
She also shared that one of the best lessons she ever learned from her idols was to pick yourself up after a bad time. She said, “I have lived through a lot of ups and downs. I really think the greatest gift we can leave our children is to teach them how to get back up after they fall down. It applies to everything: bad relationships, dark things that sometimes happen, people who take advantage of you or hurt you — everything!”
