Happy 60th birthday to Donny Osmond!
There was a time, a crazy time about a decade ago, when I was on just about every red carpet in town for every movie premiere, awards show or party. It was during this period that I kept running into Donny Osmond. We first met at a DVD convention and we just jabbered away about the DVD business which we were both rather obsessed with at the time. I liked him because he really was just such a regular guy – friendly and fun and not at all pretentious. He then began doing a lot of red carpet work for one of the shows – Extra or Access Hollywood I think – and it was during this period that we both found ourselves doing interviews at the Academy Awards. I was a columnist for the Los Angeles Daily News and Donny was so excited about being at the Oscars in the thick of it all. So on his 60th birthday, I want to pay tribute to someone who has been a star for literally most of his life.
