Eeesh, yeah. Edyta was thin to begin with. :/ Someone speculated a while back that they wondered if she had body image issues. If that's the case, I hope someone steps in.

If that's true, it would explain why Lacey is back after she initially said that she wouldn't be this season.

And if it IS true, I can't say I blame Edyta. I can see where she'd be finally ready to move on after five years and ten seasons. No doubt, she and Alec will want to start a family at some point, too.

I think that is one of the oddest press releases I have ever seen. Did Edyta hire Karina's publicist?

Just let everyone know that she isn't coming back. Why the need to make it sound like there was a big blow up with the producers? And, why now, bring up the treatment of Alec from sooo many seasons ago?

So, she thinks the producers wanted dance to be her life? Um, she IS a dancer, right? It all sounds like useless drama to me. Oh, forgot, the show likes that.

ITA. On the other hand, I do not know enough about the value of "drama" in these circles - may be they need it for a come-back or something?

This article states that Edyta is still under the contract and simply can not "waltz" away from them. Does this mean we will see her in professional performances this season?

Also, I kind of understand her decision. She is getting older and is wisely afraid of physical limitations that come with age.
It is wise, I think, to get a degree and then, continue in the field of dancing in a different role. Anyway, good luck to Edyta. I will miss her.

I wish Edyta welll...if she is going back to school or not. Whatever contract the pro dancers have with DWTS, it does not guarantee them a spot each season, obviously. More likely it's more of a "if we need you, you have to be available" agreement. If that is the case, I can see where some of the dancers might resent the situation. It might also explain why certain dancers only appeared once or twice. Granted some of those non-repeaters might just be not up to DWTS standards (whatever they might be) -- but some probably figured it would be too restrictive.

The publicity from being a pro on DWTS is great....however, I suspect the treatment of each dancer varies a lot. In other words if your last name is Ballas or Hough, you are catered to -- whereas if your last name is Roberts or Mazo, you wind up with table scraps.

So I guess a couple seasons going by confirms she's gone for good, eh?

Any news on what she's doing now?

I agree, sinycalone. I wish her well. She must have felt pushed into a corner by TPTB. She was one of the most beautiful and graceful of the dancers. Hope she does some guest appearances.

They did a big pro number in the 200th episode with all the past and present pros. Neither Edyta or Alec were there. I knew then we would never see them again. I don't know why they got the cold shoulder from the show, but I know Edyta (who has always had great PR skills) said several things that indicated it was not a good parting. It's a shame too because I liked both of them. I was sorry when Natalie Coughlin got booted off because her partnership with Alec was very charming.

That's just wrong. She was SO loyal to the show for SO long. And kind of constantly got shafted on partners too, season after season. She was owed some respect.

I miss Edyta. She was one of my favorite dancers and the show was so much more exciting when she danced. Such a beautiful, smart and talented lady.

First Anna, and now Edyta (and Elena also gave birth about a month ago).  There must be something in the water!  :)

Edyta gave birth on January 4.  She posted a pic on Twitter.  The baby is just as cute as you'd expect, and Edyta looks fantastic for someone who just had a baby five days ago.
