“When I heard him say to me, ‘I have no friends,’ it brought back to me, when I went through depression,” Osmond said. “Because you really feel so alone, and the hardest thing was, I told him, I said, ‘Mike I’m gonna be there Monday and its gonna be OK’ — but depression doesn’t wait until Monday.”

The mother-of-seven admitted to Winfrey she’s second guessed herself about the incident.

“What if I had just put him on a plane and said, ‘Come be with me,'” she said. “[But] I think if you live in what ifs, you stop living.”

The full interview airs on Oprah Thursday.
