Marie Osmond Says California Wildfires Caused Fainting Spell on 'Dancing With The Stars'

Marie Osmond says her fainting spell on the October 22 episode of ABC's Dancing With The Stars resulted from wildfires currently plaguing Southern California.

Speaking to  the entertainment television show Access Hollywood, the 48-year-old singer/actress said "The air quality is really bad and I have allergies really bad so maybe that was it. I am a singer. I don't know why I should have been winded. We have done it six, seven times in a row no problem."

While some reports suggested Osmond's diet - in which she lost nine kilos - was a contributing factor, she denied it. "Absolutely not!" she protested. "Honestly, I have never felt better in my life. I am in better shape than I ever have been and there has been so many things going, it is so funny how rumors start. No diet pills."

Osmond admitted, however, that the dissolution of her 20-year marriage to record producer Brian Blosil contributed to her stress.

Marie Osmond fainted immediately following her televised performance with professional dance partner Jonathan Roberts. She was revived during the commercial break and recovered sufficiently to receive her scores from the judges.
