Melissa Gilbert: 'Dancing With the Stars' partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy on whether she'll be back
"She's in pain," he says of his partner's state. "She's got a big headache. I was a bit confused about the injury yesterday because she said that she hit the floor and I was like 'I was looking at you the entire time', and I was trying to carry her, you know, through some of the moments, and being kind of careful and gentle with her. She hit my knee. I honestly didn't feel it. I thought I slipped on her dress."
So, are they coming back? Maks starts by saying, "Well it's not up to me. It's up to her. I think doctor said that she had a minor concussion. I know that's very not pleasant. I wish she could take a couple days off. And honestly, at this point, with Sherri (Shepherd) getting eliminated I'm not really sure if it's worth killing yourself and, you know, trying to put on a show when it is what it is. Look, you know, I think the only aspect is on our side is our fans, and I'm beyond grateful."
He gives us the final word -- sort of. "I think we are coming back. I'm pretty sure, you know, I haven't heard talks about not coming back. But then again, she'll wake up tomorrow, and she continues to have a headache, I won't let her in the studio."
