Tom DeLay will quit Dancing with the Stars

After dancing live last night on Dancing with the Stars 9 despite being injured, Tom DeLay “will withdraw from Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday’s live results show due to stress fractures in both of his feet,” People reports.

Before his live performance, he said he was “insane or stupid”; after the show was over, he told the magazine that his feet were “starting to tell me I shouldn’t have done this. I ice them. I’ve got a bone stimulator machine that I put on them.”

To recap: The Hammer has been taken down by a dance competition that caused him to be “more feminine and a little prissy” and has left him stimulating his bones.
