This season of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ has not been kind to the stars performing on the show. Maria Menounos has suffered some aches and pains in her feet but she is not alone. On Monday night, Melissa Gilbert had to be rushed to the hospital immediately following her dance because she suffered a head injury. Gilbert was a cast member on the show ‘Little House on the Prairie’ and is now 47. She had to dance the paso doble with her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. During the routine she reportedly suffered whiplash and a mild concussion from being spun on the dance floor. This was confirmed by the other contestants on the show.

“She hit her head during her dance, and then after she felt a little dizzy so they took her to the hospital just to get checked out and make sure she was okay,” Sherri Shepherd explained after the show. “I think she’ll be alright, though.”

Gilbert was carried to the red room by contestant Gavin DeGraw because Gilbert was ‘too weak to walk,’ according to pro dancer Karina Smirnoff. The host of the show, Tom Bergeron, told the audience that everything was being taken care of and that there would be an update on Tuesday’s results show.

On Twitter, Gilbert said the following:

“I’m all right. Mild concussion and whiplash,” she wrote. “Very soon I will be safely home resting and being taken care of.”

Menounos suffered two broken ribs this season and stress fractures in her feet, so injuries on the show this season and historically are nothing new.
