Dorothy Hamill drops out of ‘Dancing with the Stars’
A hugely tearful Dorothy Hamill bowed out of season 16 of “Dancing with the Stars” on Tuesday night’s results show, after it was revealed that nerve damage to her spine would become “possibly irreparable” according to her spine surgeon if she continued on in the reality show competition.
In an interview with the Sun-Times earlier this month, Hamill was overjoyed about competing on the show, following in the footsteps of other Olympic skating champs including Kristi Yamaguchi, Evan Lysacek and Apolo Anton Ono.
“It’s been a wonderful ride. I wish I could stay but I can’t do justice to the commitment,” Hamill said, clutching tight to her pro partner Tristan MacManus.
