The Flu Strikes DWTS!

The flu is getting tougher and tougher to avoid these days! And the pesky virus has just invaded the set of Dancing with the Stars…for the second time!

Lacey Schwimmer came down with the flu on Thursday while traveling in New York with her partner Mark Dacascos. But she does have a replacement for this week. Professional Anna Trebunskaya will be filling in for her. Lacey blogged from her sick bed, “I have total faith in Anna. I know she and Mark will have perfect chemistry and hopefully I’ll feel well enough to cheer them on backstage.”

“I was supposed to help him out and train on Saturday,” Trebunskaya says. “But Lacey got really sick and when she got back from New York. [Filling in] has definitely been a challenge.”

“We rehearsed 12 hours Saturday and again Sunday.”

Nothing like getting thrown to the wolves! This is the third contestant on DWTS to get the flu this season; Derek Hough and Mark Ballas were both previously ill. Fingers crossed that everyone else stays healthy!
