Roshon Fegan on “Dancing With the Stars”
The “Dancing With the Stars” contestants were warned on Monday night that two couples would be sent packing on Tuesday, but that didn’t make the sting any less bitter.
Chris Brown was the night’s performer, and after he ran through a new song from his forthcoming album Turn Up the Music, the remaining celebrities got the bad news.
In the end, the first couple to get the boot was Disney star Roshon Fegan and his partner Chelsie Hightower. Fegan smiled through the announcement and said, “I am happy to add ballroom dancing to my super-duper dance moves.”
Fegan actually scored pretty well on Monday night, earning 29 out of 30 for his individual performance. The judges told him that watching him perform was like watching a young Mickey Rooney.
Fegan’s pleasant reaction to getting sent home was the exact opposite of that by the second celebrity to get the boot: actress Melissa Gilbert, whose dance partner was Maks Chmerkovskiy. She had to wipe tears away after her name was called. It was Gilbert’s 48th birthday, and the moment was emotional.
Gilbert landed at the bottom of the leaderboard on Monday’s telecast, with judges telling her that her footwork was spotty.
“I can’t even describe what a learning and growing experience this has been. It’s been a real blessing and a joy,” she said upon her departure. “Maks has been amazing. An incredible teacher. An incredible friend.”
“DWTS” semi-finals begin next week, with the remaining four celebrities — Donald Driver, Katherine Jenkins, Maria Menounos and William Levy — in the running for the mirrorball trophy.
Just months after getting engaged to his baby mama, NBA star Gilbert Arenas decided to drop his lawsuit over her reality show “Basketball Wives: LA” — but with one catch … he can bring it back any time he sees fit. If you recall … the Grizzlies…

Melissa Gilbert and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy on “Dancing With the Stars”
“Dancing With the Stars” has a long history of sending its competitors to the hospital with a variety of hoofing-related injuries. But on Monday night’s episode, former “Little House on the Prairie” star Melissa Gilbert appeared to suffer one of the worst two-stepping mishaps in show history.
While the judges were high on her bad-girl take on the paso doble, the real news was that Gilbert, 47, slipped at one point and though the audience didn’t notice, she suffered a head injury that required hospitalization. Host Tom Bergeron announced the news on the show, but didn’t give much detail.
“If you’re wondering why Melissa and [dancing partner] Maks [Chmerkovskiy] are not here, she injured herself and as a precaution has gone to the hospital to get it checked out,” Bergeron said on the show, promising a full update on Tuesday night’s results show.
Gilbert hit her Twitter account shortly after to explain her absence, writing, “I’m alright. Mild concussion and whiplash. Very soon I will be safely home resting and being taken care of.”

Some of Gilbert’s competitors spoke to Us Weekly about the scary moment after 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,” explained Sherri Shepherd. “I think she’ll be all right, though.” Gavin DeGraw said he carried Gilbert down to the green room because the TV actress was “too weak to walk,” adding, “my arms were tired by the time I started the dance after carrying her!”
Melissa Gilbert gave her best Dancing With the Stars performance yet Monday night!
But it was so good, she actually injured herself…
Everything seemed to be fine throughout her performance, but when the end of the night rolled around, she was nowhere to be seen.
Clearing any questions up, Tom Bergeron quickly informed us:
If you’re wondering why Melissa and Maks are not here, she injured herself and as a precaution, has gone to the hospital to get it checked out.
Apparently poor Mel smacked her head on the ground during a routine trick! OUCH!!
Fellow contestant Sherri Shepard said:
It’s not her back. Melissa was doing a trick at the end and she hit her head so she put an ice pack on there, but they wanted to make sure everything was OK and check her out. It shows you people are so committed to doing this show and doing the dance that they’re pushing through so many things.
OoOoOoooh GURL. We hope you have lots of flowers! Feel better!!
