Did you see Marie O.(and Donnny) on Sun am (CBS) yesterday? I guess it was publicity for her new stint coming up on a CBS talk show and for Donny's new album. I remember years ago how she told Dr. Oz I think that she had been abused as a child, and as a teen and in one of her marriages, too - although she didn't want to name names or talk about details of any of it publicly.
I find myself feeling a bit happy for Marie that she's managed to move forward despite all those issues, and for someone like Elizabeth Smart who appears to have a pretty good life, all things considered.
But also find it a bit disconcerting Elizabeth to showcase her family and kids on social media. Isn't that safety rule #1 - not to post pics of our kids online? Makes me think she still has that Mormon/LDS naievete (if you just get married and have kids, everything will be fine) without really dealing with the tough issues of recovery, belief, etc.
