She and the seven children were moving house, her husband was working on a big project in another state and she was anxious about how she would lose weight and cope with going back to her job as a talk-show host for the Donny and Marie Show after the birth. Finally one evening she left her family. taking two credit cards, she drove away thinking she would never return.
