[ # ] Jeannie Mai gives an update on her surgery
November 3rd, 2020 under The Real

Yesterday, Jeannie Mai announced that she was forced to drop out of Dancing with the Stars because of a medical emergency. The Real host found out that she was suffering from epiglottitis, and she needed surgery to correct the condition that could have potentially killed her.

“I would never imagine ever having to write this, but I made it safely out of my emergency surgery. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Nasseri who identified my potentially life-threatening condition. 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,” Mai said. “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.”

While she won’t be able to compete on Dancing anymore, hopefully, they can find something else for her to do when she is better. Maybe she can replace Tyra Banks, who shed crocodile tears for Mai on the ABC competition show last night.
