Dancing With the Stars recap: 'Most Memorable Year'

  Dancing With the Stars recap: 'Most Memorable Year' Although it’s been said many times, many ways: Welcome to “Most Memorable Year” on Dancing With the Stars. It’s not like DWTS doesn’t know what it’s doing — just look at how many couples have been assigned the contemporary style of dance. “Contemporary” is dance speak for “Make them feel. Make them feeling every last thing.” They are begging us to cry! What with people dancing about late loved ones, premature babies, and LEARNING TO WALK AGAIN, we should be able to oblige.

Frankie Muniz Opens Up on 'Dancing With the Stars' About His Memory Loss . Muniz said he’s not exactly sure why he lives with memory loss but that he’s had nine concussions and several mini strokes , called transient ischemic attacks.

Actor Frankie Muniz has talked for the first time about suffering from severe memory loss . The 31-year-old explained that he hardly remembers starring as the titular Malcolm in Malcolm in the Middle, after enduring nine concussions and several transient ischaemic attacks, or ' mini - strokes '.

The next one came when he tripped and fell on his head during basketball. Two more occurred during pee-wee football around 7th grade, and he’s not sure when the rest followed — though he does recall getting a few while racing cars in his early 20s after starring on Malcolm in the Middle.

All told, Muniz has suffered from nine concussions — a revelation he made during Monday’s episode of Dancing With the Stars. But his shocking admission, which also included his matter-of-fact pronouncement that he doesn’t remember starring in the popular Fox sitcom, only graced the surface. In a candid interview with EW after Monday’s show, Muniz said he’s been in and out of ERs and doctors offices after suffering from “at least” 15 transient ischemic attacks (or TIAs), otherwise known as mini-strokes that involve a temporary clot or blockage in the brain.

Frankie Muniz doesn't remember being on 'Malcom in the Middle'

  Frankie Muniz doesn't remember being on 'Malcom in the Middle' Frankie Muniz has severe memory loss."Malcolm in the Middle" aired for six years from 2000 to 2006, but it seems that its main star, Frankie Muniz, needs YouTube to really remember he was even there.

Frankie Muniz has opened up about his health in a big way. The 31-year-old actor discussed his health problems during Dancing With the Stars' "Most Memorable Year" night on Monday, Oct. " I have had nine concussions and I 've had a fair amount of mini - strokes ."

Frankie Muniz starred on "Malcolm in the Middle" from 2000 to 2006. Now he's a contestant on "Dancing with the Stars." In a recent episode he revealed that he suffers from memory loss and doesn' t remember her time on the show. He suspects that concussions and mini - strokes might be at fault.

His first one hit in 2012 when he was riding his motorcycle. He lost his peripheral vision but miraculously made it home alive, though he barely recognized his then ex-wife and mom. He couldn’t understand what they were trying to say.   Frankie Muniz opens up about mini-strokes and memory loss: 'I don't see it as a negative' © Steve Granitz/WireImage

He went to an ER, but answers were scarce. And they would remain that way.

“By that point, I already had nine concussions,” recalls Muniz. “But concussions don’t usually correlate with TIAs. The doctors did every test. A lot of times with TIAs, there’s a small hole in heart that causes it. Clots go to the brain and you have a mini-stroke. I don’t have that hole.”

In fact, Muniz says, he’s always been a healthy guy. “I’m 31, I’ve never sipped alcohol, I’ve never touched a drug or taken a drag of a cigarette. The only thing I’ve felt was stress. I’m a high-strung person. I just like to always be moving. I’m not good at relaxing.”

Muniz says he gave up trying to get answers, particularly because it hasn’t hindered his zest to try new things. After Malcolm ended in 2006, he raced cars professionally for several years before changing direction and playing drums in two different rock bands. He now manages one in his spare time and hopes to return to acting.

Bryan Cranston is happy to help his Malcolm in the Middle co-star Frankie Muniz remember their time on set, after health issues left the younger actor with dramatic memory loss . Frankie , who traded in his acting career to become a race car driver, also opened up about his struggles, and admitted he

Frankie Muniz Can’t Remember Childhood After Brutal Mini Strokes . “ It ’s weird when I talk to family or friends or people who I ’ve worked with and they bring up things that I don ’ t quite grasp unless I see pictures and videos and stuff,” admitted Muniz .

“It’s not something I think about. I don’t go, ‘Oh man I’m really scared, I really need to know,'” Muniz says of the TIAs. “I just move forward.”

He’s equally as nonchalant about his lack of memory, like how he doesn’t remember the feeling of receiving his first Emmy nomination in 2001 for his work on Malcolm. In fact, that’s the moment that DWTS wanted to focus on Monday as part of its “Most Memorable Year” theme. But Muniz was unable to play along since he doesn’t remember much from those six years on the sitcom, much less getting a nomination for the show.

“They were going to ask me those questions and I told them, ‘To be honest, I don’t remember going to the Emmys when I was nominated.’ I don’t have any stories or anything cool for the package,” says Muniz. “I don’t specifically remember being nominated, or what I felt, or what we did. My mom told me we went to the dentist that day.”

Since Monday’s episode, Muniz says he’s received lots of messages from old friends wanting to check on his status. “It’s a weird thing for me because I’m not sick,” says Muniz, who relies on his mom to fill in the blanks from his childhood and a girlfriend who keeps a daily diary. “I’m not looking for sympathy or anyone to care about it. This is my life and I’ve moved forward. It doesn’t stop me from being anywhere I want to be. I’ve been so lucky and fortunate in my life to be able to do all the things I’ve gotten to do. I’ve literally had three dream jobs and I’m still continuing. And now I’m dancing on TV. I consider myself to be in an amazing place. So it’s weird when people are like, ‘oh I’m sorry you are going through this but in my head I’m like, ‘I’m living pretty good.'”

Frankie Muniz has suffered nine concussions and at least 15 “ mini - strokes ,” but he does not know if it is related to his memory loss . Unlike a stroke, there are no lasting effects with a mini - stroke , but Muniz has suffered more than a dozen of them.

Frankie Muniz , known for starring on the TV show 'Malcolm In The Middle,' suffered his second mini stroke at the age of 27, and no one knows why. New research suggests that skipping dinner helps you burn more fat in the evening and may even help with weight loss .

“I don’t see it as a negative,” Muniz continues. “I see my life as 100 percent positive.”

Next Monday, Muniz and his partner Witney Carson will perform the Argentine tango during Disney Night on Dancing with the Stars.
