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.

The Skating with the stars show is not that great! I am very dissapointed with it. I was really looking forward to watching Vince Neil from Motley Crue, but he was one of the worst two on the show. He tried though, so I guess thats all that counted. Sorry to hear about Brandon leaving. I hope he gets better. He was one of the best two on the show!!! He did really well!!! I hope the judges feel bad after finding out how sick he really is. Especially the WEIRD one who said that Brandon should have been there last week to perform,no matter what, even if he was puking on the ice! That guy is crazy!!! And his comment was rude,unprofessional and uncalled for! Brandon was in the hospital. What was he suposed to do? Get out of hospital bed and run to the set of Skating with the Stars and perform in his hospital gown and puke and collapse on on the ice to make that judge happy? That judge should be fired!

Has someone told this clown that throwing hand signs went out with Ed Hardy t shirts! Wow, cool chains he has around his neck, makes him look extra cool. Is every guy in LA just a wannabe poser?

Is he bailing out of a stupid show or is he sick? and is he sick of the stupid show, or is he sick? If he is sick, hope he feels better but it is a stupid show might make anyone sick
