Our girl Melissa missed the show this week. Why? Because she was injured. Now that Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough melissarycroftwere eliminated this week, the show is down to five. Will she win? I hope so.

NY Daily News Reports:

Dancing With the Stars’ got off to an awkward start this Monday night, due largely to reality tv star Melissa Rycroft’s absence.

Rycroft suffered a hairline fracture to her to her rib last week, which only got worse with vigorous dance practice. She was forced to sit out this week. But fans shouldn’t worry, she’ll be able to go on with the competition. That is, if she makes it back next week.

To be fair to the rest of the cast, the judges had to score Rycroft and her partner Tony Dovolani on something. Unfortunately, that something was the dancing partner’s last rehearsal of the Jive. The poor rehearsal earned Rycroft and Dovolani only 21 points, dropping them in last place for the night.

Who knew dancing was so strenuous?  Get better Melissa.
