Brandon Smith was rushed to the hospital this morning from set because he was having trouble breathing. Will he be able to skate tonight?

Although he seemed in great spirits at Jingle Ball in Los Angeles Dec. 5, Brandon Smith was rushed to the hospital Dec. 6 after having problems breathing while on the Skating with the Stars set.

TMZ reports, “Sources connected with the show tell TMZ Brandon had a stomach virus when he arrived on set today — and it’s unclear if he’ll be able to skate during tonight’s show.”

Brandon’s rep released the following statement to HollywoodLife.com:

“He was taken by ambulance to the hospital.  We are waiting to hear an update.  We are not sure if he will be skating tonight…”

The 21-year-old Sonny with a Chance star is one of the leading contestants on Skating with the Stars. We hope he’s well enough to compete tonight.

Meanwhile, ANOTHER skater, Brooke Castile, got cut to the bone today while practicing with Jonny Moseley.

ABC released the following comment to us: “That’s correct as well…she was hurt during rehearsal today but she is expecting to skate tonight.”

Skating with the Stars has become the most dangerous show on TV!
