Tamar Braxton And Nick Carter
In case you missed Monday night’s episode of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars Tamar Braxton was hospitalized after the dress rehearsals for that night’s show. During the show’s live broadcast it was then reported that Tamar was hospitalized due to Pneumonia. That night Tamar and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy were scheduled to dance the contemporary to Chris Isaak’s 1990 classic “Wicked Games,” but since she was absent at the time  her dress rehearsal footage was scored instead. She did however surprise everyone by making it back to the show in time to join Nick Carter, Sharna Burgess, and Val to dance their “Show Stoppers” performance of “Hey Jude” from The Beatles Love show.

Nick Carter and his dance pro partner Sharna Burgess talked about the emotional dance to US Weekly earlier this week.

“There was a moment right before when she came out, a minute before we were going to perform and Val actually came to me and said, ‘Listen, everything aside, I need you to be a lead man tonight and I need you to protect her and take care of her,'” Carter told US

“She was unstable,” he explained. “So on top of everything else I needed to know and didn’t learn because of our lack of rehearsals, I had to really put her first and assume that responsibility and really just kind of make sure that she was taken care of,” he added.

“That was really my most proud moment of the entire season,” Carter’s pro partner Burgess added. “Seeing how Nick took care of Tamar — even at the end he was like, ‘I’ve got you,’ and had her sit down on his knee.”

Tamar and Val were not eliminated that night, but only a couple days after that performance, Dancing With The Stars’ Production Company, BBC Worldwide announced Tamar’s departure from the show on Wednesday (November 11, 2015) after more details on her health status were learned. Tamar asked the producers for permission to leave due to medical reasons, and then revealed via Instagram that she had a blood clots in her lungs caused by a Pulmonary embolism. Tamar, who is an R&B singer/songwriter, talk show host, and reality star was also in the middle of a tour with Motown artist, Kem. Unfortunately, she has chosen to withdraw from his Promise Of Love tour as well. We wish her, and her family nothing but the best and wish her a happy and quick recovery
