At the end of Monday night’s new episode of “Dancing with the Stars,” host Tom Bergeron made a rather blind-and-you’ll-miss-it announcement concerning Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy — after the performance on the show, she was rushed to the hospital.
While Melissa’s condition is going to be addressed in full during Tuesday night’s results show, she did post a message on Twitter overnight letting everyone know that she is doing all right:
“I’m alright. Mild concussion and whiplash. Very soon I will be safely home resting and being taken care of.”
Concussions can be dangerous things, especially if you don’t take the time to rest them before getting back into physical activity. If there is something that could keep Melissa out of the competition, this is it. While we expect her to stay in the competition still, we’ll wait until the results show before saying anything definitive and drawing a conclusion.
