This week on ABC‘s Dancing With The Stars, the contestants performed to a rock week theme, complete with performances by KISS, but the big story was Melissa Gilbert‘s head injury. After a trip to the hospital and missing the results show, will Melissa Gilbert return next week? Maksim Chmerkovskiy is hopeful, but not completely sure. Read on for more!
“I think we are coming back. I’m pretty sure. It’s not up to me, it’s up to her, but I haven’t heard talks of not coming back. Although, if she wakes up tomorrow and continues to have a headache, I won’t let her in the studio,” pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy recently told People Magazine about his partner, Melissa Gilbert. Melissa is reportedly at home now recovering, but there is no word on whether or not the headaches have settled down.
Uh oh, could this be the end of this couple on Dancing With The Stars? Maks is optimistic that Melissa Gilbert will push through and they will be able to perform again, after being taken to the hospital Monday for a mild concussion and whiplash. Maksim Chmerkovskiy added: “We owe it to our fans to give them a reason to vote for us. I’ve always been very vocal about how you have to earn your stripes. But I’m not sure if this is the right strategy this season, because it’s clearly not appreciated.”
We sure hope that Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy will return to the dance floor next week. We wish Melissa a speedy recovery! Who are you rooting for on Dancing With The Stars? Comment and share your thoughts with us below!
