Melissa Rycroft suffered a head injury while rehearsing her upcoming routine for Monday night’s performance episode of “Dancing With The Stars”. She and her professional dance partner Tony Dovolani were working on their moves when she suffered the injury and had to be taken to the hospital.
She was discharged from the Los Angeles hospital on Sunday night after suffering a fall during rehearsals. Her rep issued a statement, saying, “Melissa was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where she is currently being examined. She was accompanied to the hospital by her husband, Tye Strickland, and her dance parter, Tony Dovolani. Everyone is taking all necessary precautions at this time.”
Tony took to his official Twitter account to say, “Really concerned about @MelissaRycroft…we don’t know if we are dancing tomorrow!!!!! Please keep us in your prayers #trouper”.
Prior to the tumble, she said, “Been a long (and tough week) of Tango…but back to attack again today. Sometimes nothing motivates you like frustration. Tony and I actually dance our guilty pleasure first on TUESDAY.”
Let’s hope that she’s okay for Monday night’s performance episode of the show. Get well soon, Melissa!
