DWTS Shocker: Dorothy Hamill Off The Show

Posted on March 26th, 2013 at 8:01 pm


In the first night of eliminations on Dancing with the Stars, one of the stars eliminated herself, RumorFix is reporting.

Olympic champ Dorothy Hamill pulled herself and partner Tristan MacManus out of the competition just as host Tom Bergeron was going to announce who got the lowest scores.

I've taken the advice of my spine surgeon and I need to withdraw from the competition," she said, " I have an injury that could be irreparable. It would be completely unfair for me to stay in this and have any of these people go home."

"I wish that I could give it my all but I can't," she continued. "It's been wonderful ride."

If Dorothy hadn't withdrawn from the competition either Victor Ortiz or Lisa Vanderpump would have gotten the boot.

      Thank you Dorothy, I would have been sad to see you cause yourself a more serious injury. We will miss you on the show but your health is more important to all of us and yourself.
