Jeannie Mai Shares Hospital Pic After Undergoing Emergency Surgery That Forced Her Out of 'DWTS'

Jeannie Mai is still heartbroken over having to withdraw from Dancing With The Stars.

The 41-year-old talk show host revealed earlier today that she was forced to drop out of the competition after being hospitalized with a serious condition.

As the show started tonight (November 2), Jeannie shared a pic from the hospital where she currently is.

“I would never imagine ever having to write this, but I made it safely out of my emergency surgery,” Jeannie told her fans, as she was surrounded by a few balloons in her room. “I will be forever grateful to Dr. Nasseri who identified my potentially life-threatening condition.”

She adds, “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.”

“Although I am grateful to be recovering safely, I can’t lie… I am devastated by the fact that my journey with #DWTS will end this way 🥺😞 Dancing on this show has been the most exhilarating adventure. I’ve gained both beautiful friendships and loving supporters.”

Jeannie also shared a sweet note to her partner, Brandon Armstrong: “I’m sorry you don’t get to make fun of my moves anymore while I share my life gems on how to be a grown up🤭🤪 Love u so much lil bro, and will ALWAYS cherish the memories we made!!!”

Jeannie revealed earlier today that she had been diagnosed with epiglottis, which is a potentially life-threatening inflammatory condition that can cause swelling and block airflow to the lungs.
