Melissa Rycroft Hospitalized After Being Injured During “Dancing with the Stars” Rehearsal

Bachelor star Melissa Rycroft was hospitalized over the weekend after suffering a head and neck injury during a rehearsal for Monday night’s edition of Dancing with the Stars: All-Star Edition. The married mother of one took a nasty fall while practicing her steps for a group number.

Rycroft’s rep told People magazine:

“Melissa was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where she is currently being examined. She was accompanied to the hospital by her husband, Tye Strickland and her dance partner, Tony Dovolani. Everyone is taking all necessary precautions at this time.”

Melissa has since been released from the hospital, but no word yet on whether or not she’ll be able to perform the two dance numbers planned for tonight’s episode. On Monday, Rycroft tweeted:

“Thank you so much for sending your prayers..still seeing and talking to docs this AM, will give more details soon, but thanks for your love!”
