What a bummer! Dancing With The Stars has lost another one, not by elimination, but due to health issues, for the second time this season. Weeks ago, Kim Zolciak was forced to withdraw herself from the competition on Dancing With The Stars due to a mini-stroke that revealed a heart problem, and now it is Tamar Braxton’s turn to bow out. Earlier this week, Braxton was hospitalized for what she thought was pneumonia, but turned out to be something a lot more serious.
After she was taken to the hospital during rehearsals, then returned for her routine on Monday night, Tamar Braxton returned to the hospital after the show, only to be diagnosed with pulmonary embolism, or blood clots in her lungs. Needless to say, Braxton took to social media recently to let fans know that she will no longer be able to compete on Dancing With The Stars. Get all the details inside…

Dancing With The Stars seems to be jinxed this season, as contestants are getting health issues every time we turn around (OK, not that many but still). First it was Kim Zolciak with her stroke and heart issues, and now it is Tamar Braxton, who thought she was battling pneumonia, but later found out it is much more. “I went back to the hospital (after the doctors didn’t want me to leave in the first place) only to find out that I don’t have pneumonia but something way more serious and that is having several P.E.’s (blood clots in both sides of my lungs),”Braxton wrote on Instagram this morning.
Sadly, that also means that Braxton will have to bow out of the competition. “With a Heavy heart I regret to inform you that my season of #dwts has to come to an end,” Braxton said, along with sharing the photo (above) from her hospital bed. Braxton then continued, “As you all know I will be the first to always encourage anyone to push through any obstacle that comes along one’s way. But in this case, my health is my current obstacle. .. And in TRUE #tamartian form I must go about this the exact same way as I would anything else.”
Tamar then went on to thank her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy for being such a great friend, and also all of the fans for believing in her. “I woke up to a mirror and saw myself this morning and that makes me the winner because that almost wasn’t the case. Take care of yourselves… I love you and thank you ALL for your support,” Tamar also wrote. Best wishes Tamar! While we will miss you, we completely understand and certainly hope you have a speedy recovery!
