Marie Osmond is opening up to Oprah Winfrey on the death of her son, Michael. The troubled 18 year old committed suicide back in February by jumping off the eighth floor of a Los Angeles apartment building.

Osmond, 51, recalls her son talking about depression. She says:

    "When I heard him say to me, I have no friends, it brought back when I went through depression because you really feel so alone. I'm not a depressed person, but I understand that place, that darkness. I told him... Mike, I'm gonna be there Monday and it's gonna be okay.'"

As for whether she has any regret, Osmond tells Oprah:

    "I think there's always 'what if's. 'What if I had just put him on a plane and said come be with me, or gone there? I think if you live in 'what if's,' you stop living."

After being criticized for returning to the stage just one month after her son's death, Marie says it was a "calculated decision" because she "knew that if I didn't get back on stage that I may never get back on stage." She added that the "stage is my safe place."

Marie Osmond's interview with Oprah airs today.
