Selma Blair Exits ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Due to Health Concerns

Last night, Selma Blair (Cruel Intentions) had to exit the “Dancing With the Stars” competition due to health concerns. The actress revealed that she could no longer compete due to her ongoing battle with multiple sclerosis.

You can see what Blair said below:

“So, I’ve been monitored… I had MRIs and the results came back, and it all adds up to, I can’t go on with the competition,” Blair revealed to her dance partner, Sasha Farber. “I’ve pushed as far as I could. With a chronic illness, you do have special considerations, and my body has taken a hit. It’s way too much for the safety of my bones. I could do extensive damage that I, of course, do not want.”

Blair still performed one last dance with partner Sasha Farber, a Waltz set to “What the World Needs Now Is Love” by Andra Day.

“I really want to have one last beautiful dance with you, and bow out,” she continued. “So, this is a dance for everyone that has tried and hoped they could do more, but also, the power in realizing it’s time to walk away. I am so, so grateful to be able to do one last gentle dance.”

You can see that performance below:

“Dancing with the Stars” is the hit series hosted by supermodel and businesswoman Tyra Banks and actor and television personality Alfonso Ribeiro in which celebrities are paired with trained ballroom dancers to compete in themed choreographed dance routines that are judged by a panel of renowned ballroom experts, including Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Derek Hough.

After an impressive 30 seasons on ABC, “Dancing with the Stars” moves to its new home on Disney+, premiering exclusively in the U.S. and Canada, making “Dancing with the Stars” the first live series to debut on the streaming service.

“Dancing With The Stars” Episode 6 will be live streamed on Disney+ on Tuesday, October 18.  The first five episodes are available to stream now on Disney+.
