TV personality, Tamar Braxton might be forced to withdraw from Dancing with the Stars, due to the fact she missed yesterday’s show…
DWTS host Tom Bergeron explained at the beginning at the show that Tamar was taken to the hospital in the middle of dress rehearsal, but that while she has not yet made it to the studio to perform, she could still have time.
“This is very much a live show,” Tom explained. “We don’t have all the information right now. She might return in time to dance live here, we’ll keep you posted as we find out more.”
According to TMZ, she had been suffering from pneumonia for the past few weeks.
Unfortunately, Tamar did not make it back in time to perform live, so per the official Dancing with the Stars rules, the judges scored Tamar based on her dress rehearsal footage.
After the tape from dress rehearsal was played, partner Val Chermokovskiy wiped away a tear before defending the dance.
“You just saw a person that shouldn’t have been here, and was here because she felt bad for her partner, teacher, you know, that’s why I feel really bad, because it shouldn’t be like that,” he said. “It should be a fun journey. I’m not here to make her life hard. We want to celebrate her effort.”
The dress rehearsal routine received a 22/30.
If this happens again, or Tamar doesn’t appear – she will be sent packing like Kim Zolciak.
