Jeannie Mai will no longer be on Season 29 of Dancing With The Stars. The talk show host told Good Morning America that she has an inflammatory condition called epiglottitis.
She said, “My doctors discovered a health concern with my throat, which requires immediate attention and surgery. I am heartbroken that my DWTS journey has to end here.” She is currently in the hospital.
Jeannie’s pro for the season was Brandon Armstrong. He also made a statement, saying, “Guys, we are devastated by the news that we’re gonna have to cut this season short. But Jeannie’s health does come first. Thank you to all the fans that have helped get us this far, and we are praying for a speedy recovery from Jeannie.”
