Alexa PenaVega NOT Returning In Place Of Tamar Braxton on 'Dancing With The Stars'

Alexa PenaVega NOT Returning In Place Of Tamar Braxton on 'Dancing With The Stars'

As much as we wished it would happen, Alexa PenaVega will not be returning to the ballroom to compete on Dancing With The Stars.

There was a little possibility, as producers and lawyers teamed up over what to do since Tamar Braxton, one of the five semi-finalists, had to drop out of the competition due to her health.

According to People, dance offs will take the place of where Tamar was supposed to dance.

Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess will dance a samba against Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough while, Alek Skarlatos and Lindsay Arnold will dance a cha-cha against Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson. The judges will score the dances and each couple that wins the dance-off challenge will be awarded three points.

These points will be added to the points received for the two previously scheduled dances the couples have been preparing: one featuring a dance style they have not danced yet this season and another as a trio featuring a second pro dancer of their choosing.

ARE YOU SAD that Alexa won’t be returning after all?

Tamar Braxton has just announced that she is stepping down from Dancing with the Stars after suffering a major health scare.

The 38-year-old entertainer posted the sad news to her Instagram account.

“With a Heavy heart I regret to inform you that my season of #dwts has to come to an end along with the rest of my tour dates with @musicbykem. After yesterday’s final #dwts performance I went back to the hospital (after the doctors didn’t want me to leave in the first place) only to find out that I don’t have pneumonia but something way more serious and that is having several P.E.’s (blood clots in both sides of my lungs),” Tamar wrote on her Instagram account, along with a photo of her in the hospital with her dance partner Val Chmerkovskiy.

“As you all know I will be the first to always encourage anyone to push through any obstacle that comes along one’s way. But in this case, my health is my current obstacle. .. And in TRUE #tamartian form I must go about this the exact same way as I would anything else. I woke up to a mirror and saw myself this morning and that makes me the winner because that almost wasn’t the case. ????Take care of yourselves… I love you and thank you ALL for your support?? p.s. Big hugs and kisses to my boo @iamvalc for being beyond a friend, brother and the BEST partner EVER????????????????????”

We are sending thoughts to Tamar during this time and wish her a speedy recovery!
