Dancing With the Stars’ Marie Osmond told OK! the day after passing out on national television that she’s doing great and is ready to perform next week.

really fine,” Marie said. “I checked my e-mail and the response has
been incredibly sweet. I told Jon it makes me want to go out and kick
some booty and come back really strong with the paso doble, which is a
fun dance. I told him, ‘I want to be the bull and I want to kill you!’

But Marie wasn’t as strong as a bull on Monday’s performance show, when she fainted while waiting for her scores with partner Jonathan Roberts.

After Tuesday’s results show, which saw billionaire Mark Cuban
get the boot, Marie blamed allergies for the scary swoon. “I do have
really bad allergies and I haven’t done my inhaler. I didn’t have it
with me…[and] the air quality is so bad [due to the L.A. fires].

“Everybody backstage—they are putting hemorrhoid cream on their eyes because we’re swelling. It’s really bad air.”

says the fainting episode had nothing to do with her Nutrisystem diet —
which, along with dancing, has resulted in a more than twenty pound
weight loss. “I’m not on diet pills. My Nutrisystem diet is so healthy.
Nutritionally, I supplement. I don’t think I’ve ever been in better
