Last night on ABC‘s Dancing With The Stars, the contestants rocked out with KISS, and Melissa Gilbert gave one of her best performances to date. Moments after her routine, Tom Bergeron announced that she had been taken to the hospital. Now, we have learned that Melissa Gilbert suffered a head injury. Read on for more!
Melissa Gilbert came out on fire last night with her Paso Doble on Dancing With The Stars, but when she was whisked away to the hospital moments later, it left fans concerned. Fellow contestant, Sherri Shepherd told E! the reason behind Melissa’s trip to the hospital: “It’s not her back. Melissa was doing a trick at the end and she hit her head so she put an ice pack on there, but they wanted to make sure everything was OK and check her out. It shows you people are so committed to doing this show and doing the dance that they’re pushing through so many things.”
While we were promised an update after we were told it was simply a precautionary visit, Melissa Gilbert actually Tweeted late last night to her concerned fans: “I’m alright. Mild concussion and whiplash. Very soon I will be safely home resting and being taken care of.” Whew, we are sure glad to hear that Melissa is going to be okay, and we can’t wait to see her hit the dance floor with Maksim Chmerkovskiy again next week!
