Melissa Rycroft Swine Flu
Jilted Bachelor star and former Dancing With The Stars frontrunner Melissa Rycroft has been diagnosed with swine flu.
The one-time Cowboys cheerleader is the latest in a string of celebrities — including Harry Potter’s Rupert Grint, Bones star David Boreanaz, and Brian Littrell of the Backstreet Boys — to be diagnosed with the potentially-fatal H1N1 virus.
“I am indeed recovering from a bout of the H1N1 flu virus,” Melissa said Thursday. “Like most people who become infected, I thought I had a mild case of the common flu, but when my symptoms exacerbated, I immediately went to the hospital where I was diagnosed with H1N1 and given the proper medications to cure the infection.”
