Fainting Spell -- a Fake?!

11/27/2007 6:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources on the set of "Dancing With the Stars" tell TMZ that Marie Osmond's fainting spell was scripted -- to the point where she had a writer just off camera feeding her lines when she stood up!
Marie Osmond Faints
Our moles say Marie has a writer on set at all times, prompting her with witty conversation. One on-set source says he was in position when Marie went down -- and didn't miss a beat.

And get this -- Marie, we're told, is seriously on the hunt for a "successful guy." We're told she's asking some highfalutin people if they know someone who's available. Marie is divorcing hubby number two.


Marie's rep tells us that reports of a writer on set are "absolutely false." "There is no writer on set feeding her lines," she says, "Her manager is there and we (her publicists) are there but no one is feeding her lines." As for a fake faint? Her rep says that's "ridiculous. Why would anyone fake fainting on a live TV show? That show happened during the wildfires and Marie has allergies, there was smoke in the air which was extremely toxic. The trailers for the show are outside the stage and she was breathing the air. It's happened before." And lastly, the rep says Marie is NOT on the prowl. "She's going through a divorce," we're told, "She's not looking to meet someone now -- she wants to spend time with her kids. Dating is the last thing on her mind."

You can tell it was fake because after she falls and is supposedly "out", she positions her legs to bend so you don’t see up her dress. Go to YouTube to see the video and keep an eye on her legs....

Who cares, can't stand her. Just another over-the-hill has-been looking for attention. And they all end up on Dancing for the Stars. Once they put Mel B on, the show proved it was being used by all these has-beens to get attention. Dancing with the Stars needs to clean up. Loser Marie Osmond and extortionist/loser Mel B, how LOWWWWWW can you GO!

I lost all respect for her with that phony faint spell. I knew it was a phony fall and told my husband there's no way someone fainting would close their eyes first..When you faint, you drop like a ball. Just watch the video of her fall and watch her leg move after she's supposedly out. Don't buy the drama people, Marie is a publicity seeker.

I don't know if it was fake or not but this is more of a personality contest than dancing. it is unfair how brother Donny is on there every night with his "poor sister" crap. No one else has that on there side. Mel B whether you like her or not is the best from a tecnhincal stand point and she should win. Period. or Heilio is a cutie but not as consistant as Mel B. If Marie Osmond wins I will never watch this show again. Even the judges are honestly painful in saying she is the weakest dancer at this point. I am sure they will also be disgusted!! She shouldnt' even be there in the finals.

Not an expert here - but when you FAINT or BLACK OUT - you "LOSE TOTAL CONTROL" of your body and FALL!
If Marie legitimately DID black out, and fall - how come she pulls her leg in AFTER immediately falling?? This indicates to me an conscous effort.
LOOK AT THE VIEDO AGAIN - you decide.

I thought this was wierd the first day the video was aired....... and now its reported a writer was on hand ready with cue cards --- hmmmm. LOL!!
