As you’ve probably heard, the big news on “DWTS” week 3 was dancer Melissa Gilbert being taken away in an ambulance after getting a concussion during her dance with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The concussion was mild, but Gilbert didn’t make the results show the next night.
Gilbert just wrote a blog post for People describing the incident. She says she only remembers snippets from the event. She was dizzy during the judges comments and couldn’t even remember what they said to her.
Gilbert was attended in the hospital by her new, French boyfriend Thierry Gauchet and her youngest son. She’s back on the dance floor, but she says it’s hard to feel sexy after a concussion. She says, “I must admit though, I’m having a hard time getting my sexy, dancer mojo
back. I’m being a bit self-protective, a bit tentative and I’m finding
it hard to just let go and have fun. So, that is my goal this week – to
let go and have fun.”
She’ll be back on the dance floor on Monday, April 16 for Latin Week. Melissa, we hope you’re feeling better and we can’t wait to see you dance, sexy lady!
