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."

Most people get dizzy first, they don't smile and suddenly faint. So, it did appear faint. And her brother said she does it all the time, then it changed to only a few times in her life.
She did great, til her stupid rag doll dance. Her partner should have said no way. Prior, she did good job of drama in her dances. She is an actress, and didn't act like she was dizzy and going to faint. It was too lady like,

Yes Mormon's are allowed to divorce, research it to find out facts.

Secondly a fake fall? NO WAY _ yeah watch her, she went down in a pile and NO Jonathan was NOT holding her up. Marie would NOT do such a thing - give me a break and get a life and leave her alone. Is all you have to do all day is pick on Marie or other ppl on this TMZ board you really NEED a life! OY

TMZ is as bad as The Enquirer and some of the other gossip magazines. One person mentioned Marie fell like a lady, Marie is a lady. I admire the woman and her family.
TMZ, look for something good to report.

I do not believe Marie Osmond would sink so low as to fake a fainting spell on national TV for publicity. I believe people are making this claim just to stir up controversy where there is none. It must have been a slow news day.
