Melissa Gilbert - Melissa Gilbert's 'Dancing' Future Not Looking Good, Says Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Melissa Gilbert 's future on 'Dancing With The Stars' seems to be serious doubt after her professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy gave a lengthy account to reporters about his thoughts on the situation, reports Entertainment Weekly. "She's in pain. She's got a big headache," the dancer told reporters after the show. "I was a bit confused about the injury yesterday because she said that she hit the floor and I was like I was looking at you the entire time, and I was trying to carry her, you know, through some of the moments, and being kind of careful and gentle with her. She hit my knee. I honestly didn't feel it. I thought I slipped on her dress".
Continuing, Chmerkovskiy said "I think the doctor said that she had a minor concussion. I know that's very not pleasant. I wish she could take a couple of days off. And honestly, at this point, with Sherri Shepherd getting eliminated I'm not really sure if it's worth killing yourself and, you know, trying to put on a show when it is what it is". Gilbert was not part of Tuesday's results show, when fellow contestant Sherri Shepherd was given the boot despite a string of fairly competent performances.
