One of the Skating With the Stars front runners Brandon Smith was rushed to the hospital during rehearsals today. What will it mean for the Disney star? Will he perform in tonight’s competition? Keep on reading for more.
“Sonny with a Chance” star Brandon Smith was apparently sick when he came to the Skating With the Stars set today for rehearsals. TMZ reports that a 911 call was made from the CBS lot, where the ABC reality show is taped, around 11:43 am when Brandon started having difficulty breathing. He was taken to a local hospital by ambulance.
Thus far, Brandon Smith has been a strong presence on the ice, moving around with confidence and skill. Last week, Brandon and his partner, professional figure skater Keauna McLaughlin, skated a strong tango that impressed the judges. Johnny Weir called it ferocious and sexy, while Dick Button used the word spectacular. The duo received a total score of 49, rightfully earning him the best score of the night.
As of last week, All My Children star Rebecca Budig is still the one to beat as she remained at the top of the leaderboard after the first two week’s scores were combined with viewer votes. Actress Sean Young was the first celebrity to be eliminated, but who will be next? Will Brandon Smith’s health issues affect his performance tonight? Will he even take to the ice? Find out tonight when you tune into Skating With the Stars on ABC at 9:00 pm EST.
