Marie Osmond, dolly marketer

Let's do the freaky foxtrot!

Good quality reality show memorabilia is certainly hard to come by – I mean how many cheap knockoffs of Tyra Banks’ weave have you come across in the shops. But if you are not the least bit freaked out by porcelain dolls that somehow manage to move positions during the night, then by all means knock yourself out with these fine offerings from Dancing With the Stars finalist Marie Osmond:

The 48-year-old singer has now added a line of dolls to her existing QVC collection based on the outfits she wore during the competition, including the frilly pink babydoll number she donned for her controversial freestyle routine.

Fans can choose from Osmond’s aforementioned freestyle getup, the WWII-era military-inspired costume she wore when she dedicated her “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” jive to her parents, the Spanish senorita outfit she wore for the paso doble and, of course, the short ruffled turquoise number she samba’d—and subsequently passed out—in.

Now all she needs to corner the market is to come out with life-sized versions for that other type of doll collector.

    It’s too bad that Marie’s partner could not convince her that a toy or doll routine is the kiss of death in a dance competition

    Judges *hate* them – even at the little kid level.

    And she should definitely ditch the Mary Kay sponsorship. Some things aren’t worth it.
