‘DANCING’S’ BRAXTON SAYS ‘GOAL WAS REACHED’ October 23, 2008

Toni Braxton says she considers her “Dancing with the Stars” run a complete success because she overcame her heart condition to master the demanding ballroom routines each week.

 

       “My goal was reached,” Braxton, who has coronary microvascular angina, told The Associated Press after being voted off Tuesday night. “I wanted to do better. I wanted to breathe better. And I was definitely breathing better. I’ve come a long way from Week One to Week Now.”      

       Braxton and her professional partner, Alec Mazo, received a score of 22 out of 30 from the show’s judges during Monday’s performance after a respectable West Coast swing routine. The “Unbreak My Heart” crooner was booted after that score was combined with viewer votes.      

       The R&B singer follows previously-eliminated celebs Chef Rocco DiSpirito, reality TV star Kim Kardashian, actor Ted McGinley and comedian Jeffrey Ross. Remaining stars include  TV personality Brooke Burke; singer Lance Bass; former NFL star Warren Sapp; Olympic gold medalist Maurice Greene; actor Cody Linley; and actresses Cloris Leachman and Susan Lucci.
