Adrianne Haslet On ‘Dancing With The Stars’
“It’s the longest I’ve gone without dancing for as long as I remembered. I was in a very dark place,” Adrianne said in the 3-minute video, which aired during DWTS. ”I absolutely will dance again. When I heard from Dancing With the Stars I was incredibly nervous, excited, happy. I just couldn’t believe it.”
Adrianna also recounted the day of the bombing.
“It was a beautiful Boston day,” she said. “All of a sudden the bomb went off maybe four feet from where we were standing. We landed on the ground and I thought I think I’m going to be okay, I’m not in any pain and then I tried to move my leg and I couldn’t. I remember the smell and I remember the smoke thinking I was going to die.”
Thankfully, Adrianne survived and she’s now on her way to becoming a dancing superstar again. We wish her a speedy recovery and can’t wait to see her on season 17!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Adrianne compete on season 17?
