U.S. reality TV show SKATING WITH THE STARS has been blighted by another injury - BROOKE CASTILE requires stitches after contestant JONNY MOSELEY slashed his partner's finger with his skates.
Actor/rapper Brandon Mychal Smith was admitted to hospital on Monday (06Dec10) after experiencing difficulty breathing during rehearsals.
And Monday night's (06Dec10) show was thrown into further jeopardy after Olympic skier Moseley cut his professional partner Castile's skin when he accidentally kicked her after she fell on the ice during practice.
Castile was "bleeding all over" and the skater checked into hospital to have the wound stitched up shortly before the live programme was due to air - but she is planning to go ahead with the competition, reports TMZ.com.
Smith was absent from the starting line-up when the weekly TV contest kicked off on Monday night and, as WENN went to press, it was not known whether he or Castile would be able to perform.
