On this upcoming Dancing With the Stars episode, Sean Spicer’s partner Lindsay Arnold will not be returning to the stage yet again due to Arnold mourning her mother-in-law’s passing. Spicer will dance with Jenna Johnson again as he did last week.
Spicer danced with Jenna Johnson last week when his partner Lindsay Arnold skipped her performance because of her mother-in-law’s sudden death.
“It’s Saturday morning. Just found out that Lindsay’s mother-in-law has passed away and unfortunately she won’t be able to perform,” said Spicer on last week’s show. “She went home to spend time with her family. I’m lucky that her good friend Jenna is going to step in.”
Arnold also shared the news on her social media.
“I am so saddened to say that my beautiful, loving, selfless mother in law has unexpectedly passed away. Family is the most important thing to me and being with my husband and our family at this time is exactly where I need to be. I want to thank everyone from my @dancingabc family for being so supportive and making it possible for me to be at home with my loved ones during this time,” wrote Arnold on Instagram.
“I will not be performing tonight on the show and although I wish I could be there I know that home is where I need to be,” added Arnold. “Thank you all for your love and support. Families are forever and I know that without a doubt.”
The November 4 episode had audiences watch Spicer dance a jazz routine with Johnson. Johnson was previously partnered with Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown. The pair received a 20 out of 30 points from Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli.
“Loving condolences out to Lindsay and her family for their loss,” said host Tom Bergeron after the pair’s dance.
