Kaley Cuoco had an emotional reaction to Selma Blair’s DWTS exit

Since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2018, Selma Blair has become an inspiration to her fans, documenting her ups and downs on Instagram – from the heartbreaking realization that she couldn’t show her son how to ride a bike anymore hits, to the point of tiptoeing down a rocky shore less than three years later.

In the documentary “Introducing, Selma Blair,” the actress revealed that she was advised to prepare for her death while undergoing treatment for MS, but a risky stem cell transplant gave her a new life in 2019, according to Vanity Fair. Her determination to live her best life has also taken the Cruel Intentions star a long way — to the point of being cast in Dancing with the Stars. But the transplant wasn’t a miracle cure, and Blair told Access that she was worried she might freeze on the dance floor during her first “DWTS” performance because her body reacts to adrenaline.

Blair and her dance partner Sasha Farber made it through week 5 of the competition before Blair sadly had to say goodbye to the ballroom. She’d brought just about everyone to tears week in and week out, and her swan song got a perfect score from the judges, according to TheWrap. So many people were sad to see her go, including The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco.

Kaley Cuoco expresses her love for her horse friend

Kaley Cuoco’s boyfriend, “Ozark” star Tom Pelphrey, filmed her emotional reaction to Selma Blair’s heartbreaking “Dancing with the Stars” exit. However, it was his girlfriend who shared the footage with her 7.5 million Instagram followers. Cuoco, who is expecting her first child with Pelphrey, looked quite cozy in a fluffy gray robe and pajama bottoms with one of her rescue dogs snuggled up beside her. The waterworks flowed as The Flight Attendant star witnessed Blair get her quartet of 10s from the judges, prompting Periphery to tell his sniffling girlfriend, “Babe, you’re literally crying.” A sobbing Cuoco replied, ” I can’t handle it, I love her.” Pelphrey couldn’t help but laugh as he placed a comforting hand on Cuoco’s arm.

Blair explained that she decided to leave “DWTS” after consulting with her doctor, who was concerned about an MRI showing inflammation in one of her knees, per Entertainment Weekly. But getting as far as she’s managed has been quite an achievement for the avid equestrian, who couldn’t even ride a horse in 2018. “I will heal. I’ll ride,” she vowed on Instagram. And now she’s back in the saddle and winning blue ribbons in show jumping competitions.

Cuoco is also a show jumper. She revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she nearly had her leg amputated after a horrifying horse-riding accident in 2010, but she didn’t let a health setback keep her from her stirrups either.
