Tamar Braxton was rushed to the hospital on Monday during dress rehearsals for Dancing With the Stars and was unable to perform her first dance during the live taping of the hit ABC show.

“This is very much a live show,” Tom Bergeron 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.”

The details regarding Tamar’s medical emergency are unclear, but according to reports, the singer has been battling pneumonia.

Because Braxton was unable to perform her first dance, the pop star was judged on her rehearsal footage. After the tape ran of the singer’s rehearsal, her partner, Val Chermokovskiy, made an emotional plea on Tamar’s behalf.

“You just saw a person that shouldn’t have been here, and was here because she felt bad for her partner, teacher, you know, that’s why I feel really bad, because it shouldn’t be like that,” he said. “It should be a fun journey. I’m not here to make her life hard. We want to celebrate her effort.”

But shortly after Chermokovskiy’s speech, there was a joyful turn of events.

In the words of Tamar, “Won’t he do it,” because the beauty managed to arrive during the last twenty minutes of the show in efforts to avoid being eliminated. Braxton took the stage, straight from the hospital, and performed a routine to a cover of The Beatles alongside dancing partner, Nick Carter.

You might remember, back in September, Kim Zolciakk Biermann was kicked off the show following a mini stroke which kept her from competing.

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.


Hot Or Bothered: Fashion At The 2017 American Music Awards



The night music fans have been waiting for is finally here! The 45th American Music Awards went down right Sunday night at Microsoft Theater in L.A. and a host of your favorite stars hit the red carpet in some looks that were hot and some that had us bothered … let’s start with the hot!

The evening’s host Tracee Ellis Ross sparkled and shined in this burgundy sequined Stella McCartney gown. We’re  sure her mother Diana Ross inspired this look.

Meanwhile her  sister-in-law Ashlee Simpson Ross dazzled in a sparkly number by Christian Siriano.

And of, the evening’s Lifetime Achievement Award winner and honoree – Diana Ross proved why she’s a music and fashion icon in this black gown and hat.


Selena Gomez showed off her killer bod wearing a Coach leather minidress and brand new platinum hair.

Also killing it in an LBD – that’s leather black dress, was Ciara wearing Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture. Ok Ciara!


Demi Lovato looked like a goddess in this black sheer strapless gown by Ester Abner.


And, Kelly Rowland gave us grecian vibes in this velvet gown with embellished bodice.

But the look that stole the show  DJ Khaled’s son Asahd, looking super adorable in his tiny black suit and Gucci loafers that cost a whopping $275. That’s what we call winning at 1 year old.

But someone whose look was not winning … Nick Cannon. We’re not sure why he was dressed like a Bratz doll, but he needs to stop.

Sadly we also have to request that whoever dressed Pink in this awful tulle Monique Lhuillier dress be fired immediately. Sorry we love you Pink but this dress was a hot damn mess.
