Marie Osmond, Wendy Williams

Why Marie, we hardly recognize you! But that's the whole point, right?

Yes, cans freaked out when the famously brunette Marie Osmond popped up on The Wendy Williams Show with blond hair.

Turns out: It was only a wig! "This is my mommy hair," she explained. "When I go out with my kids, I never go as me."

So what do her offspring think of her lighter look? "My children only know me as a blond!" she joked with the talk show host.

Following her confession she went on to share that this isn't her only wig look—Like Wendy, she has lots!

The duo then took a walk down mane memory lane, chatting about Marie's famous short, boyish hairstyle from her days on Donny & Marie.

"Suga cut my hair," she says "Then everybody who had a Donny and Marie Barbie doll cut their Barbie doll's hair!"

We wonder if Marie might go back to her shorter crop (or at least a wig version of it) now that her blond ‘do is no longer her secret style? Or perhaps she'll just change her color again—maybe, say, a fiery redhead?
