On last night’s performance episode of Dancing With The Stars, host Tom Bergeron closed out the show by cryptically telling the audience that Melissa Gilbert was injured and taken to the hospital. In case you’ve missed the show, you can read our recap here.
Melissa and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy scored a total of 22 points for their Paso Doble. After her dance, she was taken to the hospital to get checked out — and now we know what happened exactly.
Karina Smirnoff has offered some insight as to what led Melissa to the hospital. She told reporters that Melissa complained about feeling dizzy and was lightheaded after hitting her head on the dance floor during her performance.
It was also said that her fellow competitor Gavin DeGraw carried her down from the stage’s red room. Afterward, she was put on a stretcher and taken to the hospital via ambulance, with Maks following.
A source also revealed that Melissa was put in a neck brace while she was still wearing her dancing outfit. The snitch said, “Her entourage surrounded her in a worried group.”
We’re hoping that Melissa is okay. Stay tuned for any updates on her condition. We’re pulling for her! Let’s hope that she doesn’t drop out of the competition, but that is a definite possibility, don’t you think?
