Melissa Gilbert, whose pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy is Val’s older brother, tweeted, “Truly stunned that @SherriEShepherd & @iamValC r eliminated. If they can go any of us is fair game! This makes my head hurt even more...”
Melissa is, of course, referring to the mild whiplash and concussion she suffered during her Week 4 Performance. She later tweeted that “I just watched my tivo’d #DWTS and I’m weeping. @SherriEShepherd I will miss you so much.”
Poor Sherri. Not only did she just get voted off her dream show, but now she has to feel guilty for exacerbating Melissa’s injury. Rock on, Sherri!
