Brandon Mychal Smith left Skating With The Stars on Monday night's edition, as the 21-year-old Disney star suffered a stomach virus so severe, the show’s doctors could not clear him to hit the ice.

"The journey has been fruitful and very fulfilling," Mychal Smith, alongside his partner Keauna McLaughlin, said as he left. "It's been a roller coaster of a time. I'm feeling very disappointed."

With Mychal Smith taking himself out of the game, all of the remaining contestants -- Real Housewives star Bethenny Frankel (38/60 points), soap opera actress Rebecca Budig (53/60) and Olympian Jonny Moseley (54/60) -- danced to varying degrees of success.

The night's dramatic highlight occurred between Frankel and judge Johnny Weir: last month, Frankel said she doesn't "care if the judges give me zeros -- I really don't. We're not here for the judges."

Weir got the last word on Monday's episode, telling Frankel, "I don't really care to watch you perform any more ... well, I mean, if she doesn't care, we don't care."

Skating With The Stars returns Monday at 9/8c on ABC.
