    There'll apparently be some sort of pro routine tonight. Mel Lambert (Fred Palascak's wife) and Matt Gonzales are skating in it according to Mel's twitter.

    Brooke Castille has just been taken to the hospital. Jonny kicked her and one finger is sliced to the bone. TMZ reports that she still wants to skate!

    Yikes, I hope Brandon feels better and Brooke is okay. I had a feeling going into the shower that injuries were probably going to happen, I wish I was wrong.

    He barely picks his feet up off the ice. How did he kick her finger? :lol: But seriously, it stinks to hear they are having such problems on the day of the show. Hopefully everyone is okay enough to skate.


    Edited to say nevermind, I just watched the video of it... She fell and that must be when he nicked her in the finger. He didn't seem to notice though and kept skating by himself. :lol:

    The acapella show starts tonight as well. Same time on NBC. I'll be switching back and forth.

    This show is dangerous. :eek:

    My understanding is that Tanith and Ben will skate in the opening number.

    Just saw on TMZ that apparently Brandon will not skate tonight. Sad for him and Keauna--does that mean they'll be automatically kicked off? :( Hmm...

    I wonder what the show will do for filler?

    I'm curious about how this show will deal with someone who can't skate due to injury or illness. How does Dancing with the Stars handle such issues?

    If Johnny skated over Brooke's finger, I'm glad that all that happened is that it was sliced to the bone. It could have been worse. I hope she recovers well! Ouch!

    It won't be hard, they are already stretching 10 minutes of skating into a 90-minute broadcast.

    They could do a double elimination next week. They have a finite amount of time.

    DWTS used rehearsal footage for Melissa Rycroft when she had hurt her ribs. They typically film the dress rehearsals and some of the others that are on the sound stage.

    I could see them doing something similar with Skating with the Stars. They obviously film some of the rehearsals, as we have been shown that footage before.

    Is it wrong that, after a crap day at work, I remembered that SWTS would be on tonight and that cheered me up? :lol:

    WHAT IS WEIR WEARING? Johnny, just a FEW ruffles are good, you need a few less rows :) (His 'style" may be the ONLY reason to watch this)

    I feel like I am watching a train wreck.... (and the injuries show that's what it is) Kind of sad that I watch. (But I probably won't be able to deal with an hour of this....watched last week on video so I could fast foward through the "junke")

    I feel the same way. It's fun to watch and even more fun to snark about :)

    I know that both skating and dancing with celebs can be dangereous. But the fact that sharp blades are involved in skating - :eek: for injuries.

    They could have made it less awkward by announcing why Brandon was not there before having Keauna skating out by herself.

    Part of me expects Jennifer Grey to wander onto the ice tonight and discuss her injuries.

    I can totally see why Fred's been so successful on the British version.

    That was a fun number and Rebecca looks like she's having fun and isn't scared out of her mind.

    Why does Bethany look like she's dressed like a 12 year old skater from 1982?

    I get the feeling he is terrified of the ice. Let's make him skate tonight in order to kill some time :EVILLE: .
