[ # ] The Dancing with the Stars curse is back, injury forces someone out
September 16th, 2019 under Christie Brinkley, Dancing with the Stars
For the last few seasons, Dancing with the Stars has been injury-free. However, the curse is back, just in time for the show’s season premiere tonight at 8p. Christie Brinkley was forced to drop out of the dancing competition and her daughter Sailor will take her place.

ABC released this statement, “While rehearsing for the premiere of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ Christie Brinkley suffered injuries which required surgery to her wrist and arm. She is unable to continue her planned participation on the show. Keeping it all in the family, her daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook, a Sports Illustrated model, has chosen to quickly step in with hours to learn the entire routine and will compete in her mother’s place for the remainder of the season. We wish Christie a full and speedy recovery and look forward to seeing her in the audience, whenever possible, proudly supporting Sailor.”

When this accident happened we do not know. However, she posted the above video at 9p on Sunday, around 20 hours before the start of the live show. Meaning that is all the time her daughter has had to learn the dance. While her competitors have had weeks to perfect their first dance. Good luck Sailor, you are going to need it.

This is not the first time that a family member stepped in for another one. During season 2, Master P filled in for his son Lil Romeo who suffered an injury before the premiere. Others Stars who dropped out for health reasons are Tamar Braxton, Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Nancy O’Dell, Jewel, Misty May-Treanor, Dorothy Hamill, Billy Dee Williams and Tom Delay. Sara Evans left the show for personal reasons.

Tonight we will find out which pros the Stars are dancing with, a DWTS first. Plus, there are two extra pros. What they will be doing, we will find out soon enough.

UPDATE: Good Morning America got video of the moment Christie Brinkley broke her arm on Thursday during rehearsal.

Sailor told Ginger Zee she was getting on the plane to support her mom, when she got the phone call she was going to have to fill in. She is nervous, but she is ready to face her fears.
