Brandon Smith Out of 'Skating' Due to Illness

12/13/2010 12:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brandon Smith is pulling out of "Skating with the Stars" -- for the rest of the season -- because of the illness that forced him to miss the show last week ... TMZ has learned.

As TMZ first reported, Smith skipped last week's show after he started throwing up on set. A rep for the show told us at the time it was food poisoning.

We're told Smith has not been officially diagnosed and is still awaiting test results. Sources close to the "Sonny with a Chance" star tell us he is weak and barely able to stand.

UPDATE: Smith will appear on the show tonight to reveal the details of his condition.

Reminds me of the old 'If a tree falls in the forest and nobody's there to hear it, does it make a sound' question...

If a Skating with the Stars contestant quits and nobody's watching, does any body give a crap?

Good idea to leave now, this show is so bad I am surprised they can get any one to watch. Oh, I forgot that they have such big STARS SKATING

You should've just not done this show....that way you wouldn't have to pull a Michael Jackson and fake an illness to get out of it.

He must have a helluva stomach virus. Sad, he was one of the better ones, and I'm sure it would have felt nice to finish what he started.
