SEATTLE, Wash. -- Cheryl Burke, a popular professional dancer from ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday night, TVGuide.com reported.
Cheryl, who won the “Dancing” title twice, was unable to perform at the Seattle stop on the group’s 37-date tour.
“Last night, during run-through, I was cramping and in pain,” Burke told TVGuide.com.“I couldn’t even stand up straight.”
Burke was rushed to a hospital where she was told she may have appendicitis.
She is reportedly flying home to San Francisco today for a second opinion.
“I hope it doesn’t require surgery,” she said.
Cheryl’s partner Wayne Newton was nearly kept off the “Dancing With the Stars” tour over a recurring heart infection.
Fellow professional dancer, Mark Ballas also sustained an injury this season.
Ballas tore a shoulder muscle during a dance on the show’s finale. He later underwent surgery to repair the injury.
