Tamar Braxton is finally out of the hospital after scary health drama that forced her to withdraw from ‘Dancing With The Stars.’ After nearly a week of treatment, she’s been released and is literally singing for joy with excitement!
Tamar Braxton’s journey on Dancing With The Stars came to a screeching end on Nov. 11, when she was hospitalized with blood clots in her lungs. The Real host had originally been diagnosed with pneumonia but it turned out to be far more serious. After six days in the hospital, the 38-year-old songbird was finally released on Nov. 17, much to her great relief.
In an Instagram video, she sings in a high falsetto range the words “Guess who’s leaving the hospital?” with great excitement, adding, “Finally won’t he do it? Yes!'” She was wheeled out accompanied by husband Vincent Herbert, who followed next to her. She was wearing big round shades so unfortunately we can’t see the thrill in her eyes, but her gorgeous voice definitely says it all. Tamar captioned the video to her 2.1 million followers: Look at GOD!! #so blessed thank you all for your prayers. I (heart emoji) you all so much.”
She was up and mobile when TMZ caught up with her a short time later at a CVS drugstore in Woodland Hills. “I just got out of the hospital, I just dropped off my prescriptions, I’m so excited to be back,” she told their cameraman. To all of my fans…and Val (Chmerkovskiy) is amazing, and Dancing With The Stars, I miss everybody,” she continued.
Unfortunately she’s not completely in the clear with her health drama, as when asked how she was doing she said she wasn’t 100 percent but “at least I’m out of the hospital.” Yikes! She had her steady rock that is hubby Vincent there with her and he told TMZ, “When you find a great woman you find a great thing, so I just want her to be healthy.” So sweet!
Although she performed on the Nov. 9 show after being rushed to the hospital, Tamar was very clearly unwell as the results were announced, and Alexa Vega got sent home. But after the show she went back to the hospital for more tests and that’s when she finally got the devastating diagnosis that her pneumonia was something far worse. The singer took to Instagram Nov. 11 to share a sad photo of herself in the hospital — with partner, Val Chmerkovskiy by her side — and revealed to fans that she was suffering from blood clots in both of her of her lungs. Scary!
We’ so glad Tamar is on the mend and we can’t wait for her to get back to that 100 percent clean bill of health!
