The Curse of Tom Bergeron?

11/6/2007 2:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Is there a "Dancing With the Stars" curse? Tragedy seems to have befallen several cast members recently.
Dancing composite
Just last week Marie Osmond infamously fainted during a live broadcast, and today word came that she sadly lost her father, George Osmond, patriarch of the singing Osmond clan. And Jane Seymour's mother passed away last month.

These unfortunate incidents are just a few of the woes faced by these women since joining the show, Jane also had to skip an episode due to food poisoning and very nearly lost her home in the Malibu fires last month.

Marie and Jane haven't been the only ones to endure The Curse: Sara Evans left the show during a painful divorce, Stacy Keibler suffered a seizure while promoting the show and -- worst of all -- the unfortunate bout of tanorexia suffered by "Dancing" staple Cheryl Burke.

Make it stop, Tom Bergeron! Jane Seymour

I agree.....this is a completely lame and tasteless post! Normally I think TMZ is a hoot, but you guys really crossed the line with making fun of people's parents dying! My thoughts and prayers go out to Marie and her entire family at this very sad time!

I hope the curse gets passed onto Harvey Levin. Trashy journalism.

ummm... ok???    

TMZ should be ashamed of themselves!.. How can anyone justify making light of someone losing a parent. This truly is an all time low. I'm not one to jump on the soapbox but this really is horrible. TMZ should apologize to her... imagine what she is going through right now.

It was bad when you featured celebs that lost homes in fires and when people look bad in public and when Brit the ho looses her kids "because of her own stupidity" and the list goes on... I grew up watching the Osmonds and not that I am a huge fan but, thier Mom died in 2004 and now 90 yr old Dad is gone. It' s not funny to post things about a family that has lost both parents in 3 yrs. Stick to Britney TMZ.... at least she gives us something to laugh at.

Standards are badly needed.    

Marie is still a classy, plucky, good humoured delight on 'Dancing..."
Nice comeback on the agist crack while chatting with the judges.
She looks younger by the week.

This is a perfect demonstration of how our society has deteriorated. Absolutely nothing is considered sacred anymore including the death of a loved one. This was really tacky, TMZ. Certain things should just not be made fun of...this is one of them. Even Perez would have extended his condolences to the Osmond family and we all know how ugly he can get. Marie has had a really rough time the last few years and losing her dad is yet another blow. Being a celebrity she has to mourn in public which makes it all the harder. Couldn't you at least have shown some class and common decency by not making fun of her? Rise above the rag sheets, won't you?

THIS IS NOT ABOUT BERGERON, THIS IS ABOUT THE ENGLISH JUDGE THAT MADE A JOKE ABOUT PRESIDENT BUSH ON DANCING WITH THE STARS. HE IS NOT A NICE PERSON TO ANYONE, HE EVEN BELITTLES THE PROFESSIONAL DANCERS FOR LITTLE OR NO REASON...WHAT IS HIS PROBLEM, WHAT MAKES HIM THINK HE CAN BELITTLE PEOPLE JUST BECAUSE HE IS A JUDGE! I SAY GET RID OF HIM, DID YOU HEAR WHAT HE SAID TO THE PRO HOUGH LAST NIGHT AND MADE HIM TO BLAME FOR HIS PARTNER NOT DOING WELL IN THE DANCE!! ABC NEEDS TO TALK TO THIS GUY AND LET HIM KNOW HE IS NOT GOD!!

S    

you know its really disgusting that TMZ would even GO THERE associating Tom Bergeron w/these terrible tragedies.

TMZ has sunk to an all time low. The saddest part is that TMZ could care less how low they go.

Pathetic

You are all sick at TMZ. I have been a fan of Tom, Jane and all of the Osmonds for years. You should be ashamed. I guess you wouldn't think it was so funny if it were your parents.
