As Tom Bergeron informed us at the beginning of the night, Tamar was taken to the hospital in the middle of dress rehearsal earlier today, and while she has not yet made it to the studio to perform, she could still have time.
“This is very much a live show,” Tom explained. “We don’t have all the information right now. She might return in time to dance live here, we’ll keep you posted as we find out more.”
According to TMZ, she has been suffering from pneumonia for the past few weeks.
Just over a month ago, Kim Zolciak-Biermann was forced to withdraw from the competition for being unable to make a live show, following her mini-stroke. She was stuck in Atlanta and wasn’t cleared to fly back in time to perform. If Tamar can’t make it back tonight, she will also probably have to withdraw.
Tamar, who is also currently a co-host on The Real, is doing incredibly well on DWTS right now, especially if she’s been sick for any length of time. Last week, she and Val tied with Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough for second place with a score of 28/30, just behind Nick Carter’s perfect score.
