    Marie Osmond stunned television viewers when she suddenly collapsed during a taping of "Dancing With the Stars" on Oct. 22, 2007. As the show cut to a commercial, Osmond started to rise and was helped by others. Osmond explained on-air that "once in a while that happens to me when I get winded. I stop breathing." She later went on to win third place on season five. When she learned that Donny had been asked to appear on a future show, she objected. Marie said, "I don't want him to do it. Donnie has a very bad neck; he almost was paralyzed. He was in Hawaii playing with his family, bodysurfing, and he snapped his vertebrae. He's had several surgeries, and so for him to do that show, I think would be really stupid because it's hard."
