Dancing with the Stars
celebrity Misty May-Treanor has suffered an injury on Friday and is out of the competition for good.
In a statement released by ABC, the producers of Dancing with the Stars
said, “Misty May-Treanor
sustained an injury on Friday and received immediate medical attention.”
Doctors are now saying that her injury is to her Achilles tendon. The Olympic beach volleyball star is resting comfortably at home, but her competition on Dancing with the Stars
must come to an end.
Current frontrunner, Brooke Burke
, has also spoken publicly about Misty May-Treanor's condition. She told LA's 104.3 FM today, “We're all really concerned for her. She may be having surgery this week. We don't know yet. It's such a bummer.”
May-Treanor's status in the competition will be officially announced during tonight's performance show, but it's unclear as of yet who, if anyone, will take her place in the competition.
“I heard [Edyta Sliwinska
] and [Maksim Chmerkovskiy
] may dance together since both of their partners are gone, but I don't know what's going to happen,” Burke said.
I'm not sure how true that is, since having two professional dancers together would turn the entire premise of Dancing with the Stars
upside down. E! Online's Ryan Seacrest hints at a more realistic outcome: Kim Kardashian
, the most recently eliminated star, may come back for a second stab at the mirror ball trophy.
“If they ask me to, I'm available. I'm back home tomorrow. We'll see!” Kardashian said.
Misty May-Treanor and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy have had three very respectable performances on Dancing with the Stars
this season. They have scored 21 out of 30 for all three performances: a foxtrot, a mambo and a paso doble. In each routine, Misty May-Treanor exhibited great strength and desire to succeed.
Who do you think should replace Misty and Maks in Dancing with the Stars
