I love me some morning talks shows with females. I really hated The Real for a long time now. However, it has gotten so much better without Tamar Braxton. I love Tamar too. But she wasn’t her best self on that show and it kind of ruined it for me. But I started watching again because of Garcelle. And it has been really great. I haven’t been able to watch DWTS this season, but I do know from The Real that she was doing very well. And now she has to leave for medical reasons.
Multiple sites are reporting that she has been diagnosed with epiglottitis, a rare inflammatory condition that can cause swelling and block airflow to the lungs. Mai told ET Canada in a statement: “It saddens me that I will not be able to continue with the competition on DWTS. 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. The last several weeks have been an amazing learning experience. I have pushed myself to new limits physically and mentally, and I am so proud of how far we’ve come. I can’t thank my partner Brandon enough for being so supportive and believing in me. I also want to thank MAI fans who voted every week and I wish everyone else in the competition the best of luck!”
She also posted,“What simply started as a sore throat had unbeknownst to me become a dangerous infection that already closed at least 60% of my airway and resulted in a throat abscess that spread in a matter of 3 days.” This is super serious and she is such a sweet person. I am super sad about this. She makes me smile every day with her positive attitude. I wish her nothing but the best. Tomorrows episode of The Real has already been filmed. I hope that they somehow manage to say something. She was doing so good on DWTS. 2020 truly sucks but Jeannie always found a way to make it better.
I so hate this news. I just can’t tell you. She’s just always so positive.
