Frankie Muniz: ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Exaggerated My Memory Loss

Published

More to the story. Five years after opening up about his struggles with memory loss on Dancing With the Stars, Frankie Muniz is clarifying his story — and shedding more light on his health battle.

“I did Dancing With the Stars in 2017 and they have an episode where it’s the ‘Most Memorable Year’ episode — they told me my most memorable year was 2001,” the 36-year-old former child star recently said on the “Pardon My Take” podcast. “And I go, ‘I don’t know what to say,’ and they’re like, ‘Why?’ … They’re interviewing me and the way it got cut together, the way they put it, was that I have zero memory of anything.”

Muniz was partnered with Witney Carson for season 25 of the competition show, finishing in 3rd place.

“Now if you search my name, it basically says I don’t remember anything — like 50 First Dates, my wife has to wake up every morning and plays me a video,” the Malcolm in the Middle alum continued. “I know I was Malcolm. I did a lot of stuff. I don’t remember everything. … I like to now talk about it because I have a better understanding of what it is. … People come up to me all the time and they’re like, ‘Do you know who you are? Your name is Frankie Muniz.’”

The actor explained that he was misdiagnosed as having TIAs — a Transient Ischemic Attack, often known as mini-strokes — years ago.

“I was having these episodes where, like, I’d lose my vision, I couldn’t recognize faces, couldn’t talk, all this kind of stuff. And it was happening pretty regularly. And I was told that I was having many strokes for TIAs, which is a pretty big deal,” he said, noting that the doctors kept running tests on him. “I finally had a doctor really kind of look into it, and it ends up I was just having aura migraines.”

Muniz said he’s still trying to figure out what “triggers” the recurring, extreme headache. “Am I eating something? Or is it high-stress situations?” he explained. “I’m trying to figure that out now, but I haven’t had one in a few years.”

During his DWTS stint, Muniz spoke to Us Weekly about not being able to recall moments of Malcolm in the Middle and more.

“It’s something I’ve never really talked about. But we were talking about being on Malcolm and how it started, and I don’t really have memories of being on the show. My memory of being on the show is seeing the episode and seeing the show. So that’s what we started talking about and it became the story for the night for me, but it is true. It’s a weird thing. My whole life, it’s not just now,” he said in 2017, noting he’s “had a lot of concussions” in his lifetime. “I’ve had nine concussions, which I think if I was a ballplayer, I wouldn’t be allowed to play anymore. But I don’t know. Like I said, it’s not something I’ve looked into … I’m not a doctor person. Every time I go to the doctors, they tell me I’m just crazy.”

Muniz has had wife Paige Price by his side, tying the knot in 2020 and welcoming son Mauz in 2021.

“I get sad at the thought of losing my memory, because I know that I do. So [Paige] writes literally in detail — she’s a writer too, so it works — like a journal that I can look at any day. It does bring me back there because there is really cool, amazing detail,” he told Us in 2017.

‘RHOBH’: Lisa Rinna Breaks Down In Tears Over Her Mom’s Death At Dorit’s Charity Dinner

After Dorit and PK Kemsley debuted their new teeth during the Aug. 10 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, they decided to throw a charity dinner to benefit the homeless. The charity actually aims to help homeless people without teeth regain their smiles. Dorit revealed she was inspired to join the board after fixing her own set of chompers, and we think it’s a sweet way for her to give back to the community.

Anyway, Dorit and PK invited the whole gang to their house, including a very special guest. But before anyone could meet this mystery person, Lisa Rinna and Sutton Stracke got into another fight. It was actually Kyle Richards who initiated the spat — before the dinner, Kyle asked Lisa if she really told Sutton to “get the f*** out” of her house last week, and Lisa said she didn’t. But Sutton said she did, so when everyone was in the same room together, Kyle urged them to set the record straight.

Lisa tried explaining why she asked Sutton to leave her house — even though she still claimed she didn’t use the word f*** — and it just led to a big screaming match in front of all of Dorit’s guests, which included people from the charity and her own dentist, who said he’d give a free smile to one person in need.

Fortunately for those guests, however, Dorit asked Lisa and Sutton to put a pause on their fight so everyone could enjoy a performance from the special guest of the night — Melissa Etheridge! She sang “Come To My Window”, and it moved everyone. So much so, in fact, that once she was done, Lisa refused to fight with Sutton anymore.

Lisa’s anger quickly turned to tears, as she revealed she’s been “in a lot of pain” since her mom’s death. She said she’s been directing a lot of her anger towards the wrong person — Sutton — and Sutton didn’t deserve that. Sutton told Lisa that it was okay, and she understood, but Lisa said it wasn’t okay. She then cried even harder, as her friends rallied to her side in her time of need.
