Melissa Gilbert: Returning to Dancing With the Stars

by at . Comments

Melissa Gilbert returned to the studio for her first Dancing with the Stars rehearsal since Monday night's performance episode left her hospitalized.

"Nobody puts Halfpint in the corner!" Maksim Chmerkovskiy's partner Tweeted, using her character's nickname from Little House on the Prairie.

Gilbert, 47, had to be helped down the ballroom stairs by fellow competitor Gavin DeGraw after injuring herself during a paso doble Monday:

After missing Tuesday's result show, in which viewers gave her at least another week to dance after eliminating Sherri Shepherd, Gilbert Tweeted:

"Going to attempt a gentle rehearsal in a bit."

Thursday, she said she was "very happy" to be back dancing with Chmerkovkiy before signing off for the night: "Now back home to bed."

Looks like she's good to go, despite the whiplash and concussion she suffered. How do you think Melissa will do in her return Monday night?

And who will win Dancing With the Stars' 14th season?


the judges are being very easy with the stars this year but they are marking Mellisa Gilberbert hard would she get the same 7's if she had another instructor ? They don't like Max and Ive watched since season one He should have gotten that mirror ball trophpy fair to all or you will lose vieuers.


Shame on you Melissa for damning God when you got saved from elimination. Hope you get kicked off next week. I will never vote for you.
