We always seem to look past the part that every season of Dancing With The Stars, several people get seriously injured! What is this show, “Wipe Out?”
Anyways, contestant Melissa Gilbert was rushed to a hospital last night after performing a Paso Doble with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy and reportedly getting whiplash.
It was fellow contestant Gavin DeGraw that had to literally carry her down the stairs. Aside from Gavin being perfect, he only said, “I think anybody would have done it.” But would they? You didn’t see William Levy jumping at the opportunity to carry her?
Melissa is said to be doing fine and reportedly tweeted, “I’m alright. Mild concussion and whiplash. Very soon I will be safely home resting and being taken care of.”
“She injured herself,” host Tom Bergeron announced before the show ended, “and as precaution she’s gone to the hospital to get checked out.”
She may have actually been suffering from a concussion because she started doling out gushy tweets at her cast mates.
“@Maksim you are my champion. I adore you,” and later she wrote, “@GavinDeGraw bless your heart for carrying me down those stairs!”
Also, her partner Maksim got hurt too. “He hurt his elbow during rehearsal doing one of the tricks,” his brother Val told People, “And now he pulled his groin.”
That’s gotta hurt!
