Marie Osmond Blames Fainting Spell On California Fires

Osmond said she now suspects that the fires may have contributed to her temporary loss of consciousness.

"The air quality is really bad and I have allergies really bad so maybe that was it," she said. "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."

"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."
