Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani's successful Dancing With the Stars Season 15 All-Stars start took a turn for the worse when Melissa was rushed to the hospital after suffering a head and neck injury last Sunday, October 21. Although she danced on Monday's competition, fans remain worried about how she's doing.
Yesterday, October 28, a week after the injury, Access Hollywood touched base with Melissa's pro partner Tony Dovolani, who says Melissa is "doing famously."
Of course, that doesn't mean all is right as rain. Tony admits "the injury is there," but explains Melissa is "managing the pain" and "doing therapy for it." Tony also insists on Melissa wearing a neck brace to prevent further injury during rehearsal.
Fortunately, the pair are doing the Viennese Waltz this week, a slower dance that, according to Tony, "doesn’t involve [Melissa's] neck as much." Hopefully this "break" will give her body time to recover.
We hope Tony and Melissa are able to rock it tonight — without more pain!
