Melissa Gilbert "alright" after 'Dancing with the Stars' hospitalization


By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 04/10/2012 

Melissa Gilbert is doing well after being rushed off on a stretcher to the hospital Monday night following her Dancing with the Stars paso doble performance with professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

"I'm alright. Mild concussion and whiplash. Very soon I will be safely home resting and being taken care of," Gilbert tweeted early Tuesday morning.

Gilbert -- who, according to People, was helped down from the show's skybox by fellow fourteenth-season Dancing with the Stars contestant Gavin DeGraw -- didn't seem to have any hard feelings towards Chmerkovskiy for their rock routine's gutsy choreography. 

"@MaksimC you are my champion. I adore you. @GavinDeGraw bless your heart for carrying me down those stairs!" the former Little House on the Prairie star subsequently tweeted.

"I think anybody would have done it," DeGraw told People after last night's performance show.

Pro dancer Val Chmerkovskiy noted his brother didn't walk away from the paso doble routine scratch-free either.

"He hurt his elbow during rehearsal doing one of the tricks," he told People of Maksim Chmerkovskiy. "And now he pulled his groin."

Viewers were able to notice Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy's absence at the end of Monday night's broadcast when all the couples joined Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron and co-host Brooke Burke onstage.

"If you're wondering why Melissa and Maks are not here, she injured herself. And as a precaution, she's gone to the hospital to get checked out. We'll update you on her condition tomorrow night," Bergeron announced.

Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy tied for sixth place on the Dancing with the Stars judging leaderboard with actor Jaleel White and partner Kym Johnson and actor and telenovela star William Levy and partner Cheryl Burke after all three couples received 22 out of 30 possible points from judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

The scores of Monday night's judging leaderboard will now be combined with the home viewer voting results cast immediately afterward to determine which of the remaining 10 couples will be eliminated on Dancing with the Stars' third fourteenth-season results show Tuesday night at 9PM ET/PT.
