Holy wow. You Central Time Zoners and West Coasters had best tune into Dancing with the Stars tonight for one of the freakiest things we've seen yet on the show. (Yes, even more bizarre than Springer doing the tango.)
While awaiting her scores on tonight's live show, Marie fainted and collapsed, and the show cut to commercial.
When the show returned, Tom Bergeron told us Marie had passed out but was fine—and that her first words upon waking were "Oh, crap." Marie later explained, "Once in a while that happens to me when I get winded and I stop breathing. I'm so sorry!"
Not since Rebecca fainted during an elimination round on Top Model's fourth season have we seen such jaw-dropping faintery. And frankly, it's a little scary! Here's hoping Marie is safe and healthy and not pushing herself too hard just for the sake of reality TV.
