Tamar Braxton Exits 'DWTS' with Serious Health Issue
"The Real" co-host Tamar Braxton has left the competition on “Dancing with the Stars” due to a health scare.

Braxton wrote on Instagram with a photo of herself in the hospital, "With a Heavy heart I regret to inform you that my season of #dwts has to come to an end along with the rest of my tour dates with @musicbykem. After yesterday's final #dwts performance 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).”

She added, "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. 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❤️ p.s. Big hugs and kisses to my boo @iamvalc for being beyond a friend, brother and the BEST partner EVER😘🙌🏽🙌🏾.”

Braxton, 38, made the announcement, only a few days after she was hospitalized. Even with the hospitalization, she still performed an individual dance on Monday’s show.

On Thursday, Tamar's co-hosts on "The Real" wished her well. Watch!
