Report: Tom DeLay withdrawing from 'Dancing with the Stars'

By Reality TV World staff, 10/06/2009 

Former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has reportedly decided to hang up his dancing shoes. 

DeLay will withdraw from Dancing with the Stars due to stress fractures in both his feet during tonight's live results show broadcast,  People reported Tuesday.

Last night, DeLay -- who had already been diagnosed with a pre-stress fracture in his right foot prior to the show's September premiere -- had announced he had decided to ignore the advice of his doctor and Dancing with the Stars producers' and continue in the competition despite the newly-diagnosed dual stress fractures.

"What's a little pain when you can party?" his boasted to Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron before he performed on Monday night's performance show.  "It's a challenge and I've been having a ball."

DeLay and professional partner Cheryl Burke subsequently received a 15 out of 30 score for their samba performance, leaving them in next-to-last-place on Monday night's leaderboard.

"You really are a super trouper...  [but] of course the performance suffers and we have to judge based on what we see," Dancing with the Stars judge Bruno Tonioli told DeLay.

ABC denied comment when contacted by People.
