Dancing with the Stars Shake Up: Sara Evans Quits

by at . Comments

On Dancing with the Stars, a lot more than simple hip swivels and dips are going down.

There have been rumors of hot romances (yes, we're looking at you, Mario and Karina) and unfortunate divorces. The latter has led to an unexpected shake up on the ABC reality competition.

Yesterday, country singer Sara Evans announced she was filing for divorce and quitting the contest.

Evans has been married to Craig Schelske, but needed to take this time off in order to put an end to their nuptials. Allen Brown, her representative at Sony BMG Music Entertainment, issued the following statement:

"Recent events that shed light on the status of her marriage prompted Ms. Evans to make the filing."

That doesn't sound too promising. Evans may need to join the Christie Brinkley support group for executing dealing with cheating husbands.

The couple has been married since 1993 and has three children.

Evans decided she needed to leave the TV show "to give her family her full attention at this difficult time," Brown said.

You can't fault someone for putting her family first. No one wants any Laguna Beach-like drama when kids are involved.
