Melissa Rycroft has admitted that being on the All Star season of Dancing with the Stars is tougher than she anticipated, and that proved especially true this weekend. Why? Because the Bachelor cutie was rushed to the hospital for head and neck injuries during rehearsals. Yikes!

Dancing With The Stars may be minus one celebrity tonight for the performance show. Melissa Rycroft was rushed to the hospital yesterday after suffering a head and neck injury during rehearsals. According to People Magazine, Rycroft fell while rehearsing for a group routine at the studio yesterday.

Melissa’s rep told the magazine: “Melissa was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where she is currently being examined. She was accompanied to the hospital by her husband, Tye Strickland, and her dance partner, Tony Dovolani. Everyone is taking all necessary precautions at this time.”

Meanwhile, Melissa Rycroft’s partner, Tony Dovolani left this message on Twitter for the couple’s fans: “Really concerned about @MelissaRycroft….. we don’t know if we are dancing tomorrow !!!!! Please keep us in your prayers #trouper.”

As of this morning, there is no word whether or not Melissa and Tony will be able to perform tonight. Bummer. We wish Melissa a speedy recovery!

    I have been voting for my 5 favorites, and Melissa is one of them. I pray she isn’t hurt for the long-term with ongoing residuals and that she makes a speedy recovery. The dances are becoming too acrobatic and dangerous. They need to cool it a bit!

    Not sure why Melissa is on as she is not a STAR, she was on bachelor and was dumped so that does not make her a star!
