It's April Fools Day Today but this one was posted yesterday and it sounds serious enough. I've decided to drop the April Fools articles, it was pointless...
In the first major shocker of the DWTS season, Billy Dee Williams announced he was leaving Dancing With the Stars on Monday night's episode, citing an injury as his reason for quitting.
The iconic Star Wars actor and his professional partner Emma Slater decided to end their quest for the mirrorball trophy due to Williams' chronic back pain, with his doctors recommending he withdraw from the ABC reality competition.
"I've had a wonderful, brilliant, fantastic blast of a time," Williams said during the show, adding that he was going to dedicate his dance that night to his grandchildren.
He then thanked his partner, Emma Slater, saying, "Working with this wonderful, beautiful young woman has been pure, pure joy."
Maybe he's saving himself for Episode 7, who knows...
