Dancing Conspiratheory: Marie Osmond Faked Fainting?

Jonathan Roberts and Marie Osmond by Carol Kaelson/ABC

According to TMZ, not only did Dancing with the Stars dolly Marie Osmond have a writer on the set all the time to feed her one-liners, said scribe was ready to roll when she "passed out" and was at the ready when she was "revived." (And really, who didn't think she was made of heartier stock than that?) In related news, as Marie ditches hubby No. 2, the website claims she's telling amigos she wants No. 3 to be a power player.

At the Dancing Finish Line

Helio Castroneves and Julianne Hough by Carol Kaelson/ABC

I don’t know about you, but I got my wish Tuesday night. Boiled down to three words: Anyone. But. Marie. Seriously folks, if Dancing with the Stars’ trophy had gone to Marie Osmond the underdog — or rather, underdoll, as I like to think of her after Monday’s bizarre freestyle nondance that would have been better suited for the Island of Misfit Toys — I might even have joined the legions of disgruntled fans who tend to declare "I’m never watching again" after each cycle when their favorite doesn’t win.And then, of course, they return the following season, because once hooked on this deliriously entertaining reality contest, few can resist the spectacle of watching B-list celebs put on their dancing shoes with varying degrees of nerve, style and success. New stars tend to emerge from this process, and few have blazed with such effortless charm than the eventual winner, Helio Castroneves, whom I’d bet very few outside of my Indy-500-obsessed fami... read more

And the Winner Is...

Helio Castroneves! Wow I am so happy and relieved right now. In my world of delusions, I like to think I had everything to do with this but I guess my Helio did some fantastic dancing all season and the voters out there recognized him for it. They brought out milk! I learned recently that it's a race car thing — they drink milk when they win a big race. I think it's weird, I mean why not champagne? It was a nice touch tonight, though. I'm just so glad Marie didn't win. Phew! You have no idea what a relief it was to have her out of the way after the first few minutes. But I don't want to dwell on the negative, I promised the Marie fans there would be no hard feelings and I meant it. Nanny Nanny boo boo! We won! Yeah! I am so immature.But in all seriousness, I think Marie was a bit miffed, no? Even last night she seemed to be acting a bit superior. She took any chance she had to sass the judges and didn't seem to think they had anything relevant (or true) to say. I know I've been... read more

Jeers: You Call That Dancing, Marie?

Marie Osmond by Carol Kaelson/ABC

Jeers to Marie Osmond for providing the most surreal moment in Dancing with the Stars history — and that's saying something. For her freestyle number, the long-shot finalist grotesquely made herself up to look like a wind-up doll and performed a bizarro routine Bruno Tonioli aptly described as "Baby Jane meets the Bride of Chucky." (Osmond lamely explained that she's a doll designer and dedicated the performance to collectors.) All I can do is paraphrase "Start Me Up," the Rolling Stones song that accompanied the debacle: She made this grown man cry.• Read and react to Bruce's opinions on Criminal Minds, Nip/Tuck and more!• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on TVGuide.com or in TV Guide magazine! read more

A Mediocre Finale Night

I must say I thought I'd be more pumped after the finale, but I wasn't too wowed by most of the performances tonight. My Helio's final dance definitely made up for it, but he and Mel didn't give the Marie fans any reason to switch from the dark side. I think Mel may have lost the competition tonight. Her cha-cha was ok but that freestyle was not good at all. She looked like Marie trying to do a latin dance. Awkward! Maks basically danced around her. I was shocked that her hip-hop moves were so lackluster. I don't think it helped that the house band butchered their song, "The Way I Are". If I were Timbaland, I'd bust into that ballroom and scream. They tried to mimic the robotic voice in the song but ended up sounding like Ned from South Park. I disagreed with the score she received. It was not a dance worth a 27.When the judges picked the samba for Marie, I was excited. I thought they would lob her a waltz but when they picked her downfall (which is pretty much any latin dance), I w... read more

And the 10's Just Keep On Coming!

I'll admit, after the ballroom round, Marie had me thinking I should be backing her for the third spot in the finals. Then she did her mambo and I remembered why I wasn't. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't as polished as it should be. She still manages to look spastic when she needs to be looking flawless. Then I saw Jennie's cha-cha and I really knew I was right to want her in the finals with Mel and my Helio. Her technique is superior to Marie's and, despite her lack of confidence at times, she still carries herself better while dancing. I don't know how to explain it, something doesn't look right when Marie tries to do a latin dance. She is the most entertaining, as Len said, but I don't think it's enough to win this competition. Regardless, I don't think neither Marie nor Jennie can beat Mel or my Helio. Perfect 30's for both of their dances? Unstopable! Right now I kind of want both Jennie and Marie to step aside and let them battle it out! If Perfect 30's don't get them to the fin... read more

Marie Osmond "Grateful" That Larry King Blindsided Her

Though at the time his sister was obviously caught off guard by Larry King's knowledge of the situation and related line of questioning (watch the video here), Donny Osmond now says the CNN talk host did Marie a favor by bringing up her 16-year-old son's enrollment in rehab. "I have to back up and apologize publicly to Larry King," Donny said Monday on Today, referring to some harsh words he lobbed at King in the immediate aftermath of the emotional sit-down. "In hindsight, [he] did Marie a favor. She was able to make a statement about the situation [before the tabloids grabbed hold of the story]. And so she's grateful to Larry." read more

Marie Osmond on Son Entering Rehab: "I Couldn't Be More Proud of Him"

The 16-year-old son of Dancing with the Stars finalist Marie Osmond has entered a rehabilitation facility, though the nature of his problem has not been disclosed. "My son Michael is an amazing young man, shown through his courage in facing his issues. As his mother, I couldn't be more proud of him," Osmond said in a statement to the AP. "The press and public have always been kind and gracious in the past, and I know they will continue to respect our privacy during this time."Osmond, who has eight children in all, announced earlier this year that she and husband No. 2, Brian Blosil, are divorcing.Watch video of Marie being caught off guard by Larry King's question about her son. read more

A Passionate Plea for Justice!

Kiss me, you fool! Helio Castroneves, Julianne Hough by Carol Kaelson/ABC

Ok, I'll cut my usual critique and go right to begging! Well, maybe a little critique...but mostly pure, unapologetic begging.We're down to five and, as I see it, there are only two clear cut choices for the winner: my Helio and Mel B. If you don't agree I defy you to prove why your choice deserves to win. They are by far the best and most exciting. So this is my plea — let's keep these two safe! Get out there and vote.Don't get me wrong, I am a big Jennie Garth fan, but her performances tonight were a bit shaky and it makes me wonder whether she'd be able to handle the pressure of the finale. I definitely think she deserves a spot next week in the semi and if she gets better I think she should be the third spot for the finals.Cameron will be the one to go tomorrow night and I say that because I don't believe that Marie Osmond will actually lose. Side note — who put him in tan? That outfit looked like he should have been doing the Hustle and I thought his pants left very l... read more

Dancing with the Stars Backstage Report: Marie's Struggle

Marie Osmond and Jonathan Roberts, Dancing with the Stars

Her smile is famous the world over. And no one is quicker to laugh. But on Monday night, Marie Osmond's physical and emotional exhaustion after Dancing with the Stars finally got the better of her. The judges' tough comments seemed to take the last bit of fight out of her. "I'm whipped," she says quietly after the show. Nevertheless, after the show Osmond and her pro partner, Jonathan Roberts, headed to a rehearsal studio to begin work on next week's two new dances. It seemed impossible — foolhardy even — for her to keep practicing after a week spent burying her father and flying to Chicago with the Osmond family to make good on their promise to appear on Oprah.
