'DWTS' Recap: Melissa Gilbert Rushed To The Hospital

Tue, April 10, 2012 2:23am EST by 9 Comments

After hitting her head during her paso doble April 9, Melissa Gilbert was taken to the emergency room during ‘Dancing with the Stars! We hope she’s okay!

Melissa Gilbert and her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, have certainly had better evenings on the dance floor. Tonight during Dancing with the Stars, the couple had two mishaps — one that affected their scores and another that might have devastating and long-lasting health effects!

During the dance, Maks fell on his butt near the end when he was twirling Melissa around. “I know silly old Maks fell over, but it was a slippery floor and I don’t care,” Len Goodman said.

However, what we didn’t see was Melissa hitting her head against the ground hard during the dance. Apparently, she became increasingly dizzy and had to be rushed to the hospital during the middle of the show.

Thankfully, the reps at the studio didn’t seem overly concerned about the incident, simply saying we’ll see all the details tomorrow night during the results show. (We got especially nervous, simply because she broke her back several years ago…)

That said, even though Maks and Melissa struggled with their paso, not everyone was upset by it. “On the whole, I thought that was your best performance by FAR,” Carrie Ann Inaba said, complimenting.

Overall, rock night was pretty much a bust in my book, with my two favorites, William Levy and Katherine Jenkins, getting their worst scores of the season.
