Marie Osmond has pretty bad allergies



Marie Osmond says her fainting spell on Monday night’s Dancing With the Stars may have been caused by something in the air.

“I feel bad that it happened,” the 48-year-old told Entertainment Tonight in a Tuesday interview. “Right at the beginning ... I started getting lightheaded. The only thing I can think of, I have allergies. ... The air quality (in Los Angeles) is terrible. And I think I just couldn’t get my breath.”

Osmond had just finished performing a samba with partner Jonathan Roberts when her eyes rolled back in her head and she dropped to the floor, prompting the show to cut to commercial. When the show came back she explained it by saying “once in a while that happens to me when I get winded. I stop breathing.”

We think it may be a case of wanting to get a little more exposure on the show, but what do we know?
