Samba-dy Help! Osmond Collapses on "Dancing"

10/22/2007 9:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just moments after Marie Osmond busted out an intense samba routine, she hit the dance floor even harder -- passing out cold on tonight's live broadcast of "Dancing with the Stars."

As the judges stared in shock, host Tom Bergeron kept his composure and quickly threw to commercial while Osmond was sprawled out on the floor.

But all concerns were eased after the break, when Marie was up and moving around backstage. According to Bergeron, the first thing Marie said when she came to was, "Oh crap."

Osmond then explained her breakdown on camera, saying, "Once in a while it happens to me ... I stop breathing. I'm so sorry." Uh, might wanna get that checked out.

No sympathy points from the judges -- Osmond only scored 21 out of a possible 30 points.

Beefcake, I totally agree. I am a female in my 20's, no kids, etc, and it cracks me up whenever I hear these 40 and 50+ women saying, OH I STILL LOOK YOUNG or funnier yet, saying, MY SONS FRIEND CALLED ME A MILF. Hate to break it to you, but ALL teenage boys fantasize about screwing one of their friends mothers. Just because you're the best looking troll out of the bunch means nothing.

my friend kept passing out, then fine for a month or so.
Doctor told her she was having anxiety attacks and gave her some medication. She passed out holding her chest one day, We called ambulance.
Total collapsed right coronary artery. It was that all along, it was blocked! not anxiety at all. She had 4 stents and is fine now.
Maria should go in the hospital and let them do some simple test.

it is so sad when humanity loses it's most primary emotion, just by reading some of this so call comments that are more criticts and down insults, to a person doing something that if not of the liking of all of us, at least she is not abusing or damaging someone else.

I just feel bad that she had to go throug that and hope she gets check out and get to feel better.

You know WHO!    

Just in case any of you are not living in the area, Los Angeles is under clouds of smoke. I noticed that Marie couldn't get enough air by the way she was breathing, and it could be a result of the smoke that Los Angeles is under. People are having all sorts of respitory problems today. So, be mature, and give the lady a break.

Does anyone know what Mark Cuban said in his little pre-dance intro before he was cut off? Was that a glitch or did he say something bad?

Poor Marie! How embarrassing, ugh...

I'm glad she's alright. Now in my early 40's, Marie was a teen idol of my day. She along with Valerie Bertinelli were two girls I looked up to. I've often told my teenage daughter that her generation needs someone like them. They were talented, smart, pretty, and though very successful, they were well grounded. The so-called idols of today could learn a few things from these ladies.

I thought Marie Osmond's dancing was getting better and better each week. She is a real trooper - - -she's trying to lose weight, practise, entertain, etc. She performs with her brothers in concert, sells dolls on QVC and is a mother to 8 children. At her age, she is amazing and I'm glad she's o.k. We love you, Marie!!!!

TMZ why the need to be so catty in your reporting of this incident.? It was an alarming thing to happen to anyone, especially to a mother of eight, one would think a little compassion wouldn't be out of place.
Maria is doing awesome! Hang in there girl!

Hey teeks, I hate to break it to you, but time isn't standing still for you. You won't be eternally in your 20's (although you IQ may be), and there will be a time when some smug nitwit in thier 20's tries to bring you down, because apparently having pride in yourself is a crime if you are over 30. Your "troll" days will come, and faster than you think.

But thank you for not having any kids.

Oh, and Marie Rocks!

I really hope she is ok. I mean she seems a little non-chalant about this which really doesnt make sense to me.
