Marie Osmond has assured fans she’s “doing really well” after she was hospitalized on Wednesday, insisting the health scare was blown out of proportion.
The singer was admitted to a medical center in Las Vegas with a serious case of bronchitis – but was discharged two hours later.

The 52 year old proved to be feeling better on Thursday when she returned to the stage for a scheduled performance and she now insists her followers have no reason to be concerned, telling People.com, “I’m fine. I had a cough. I’m doing really well. It was a big deal that was made from nothing. I feel great.”
