Peta Murgatroyd’s patience and willpower were tested Saturday night after she was forced to bow out of a show.
“I need to apologize to the people who attended our Grand Prairie, Texas show,” the “Dancing with the Stars” pro, who co-stars in the Maks.Val.Peta Confidential tour, said in a message to fans on Instagram. “I have never missed a show due to illness in my entire dancing career.”
As the 31-year-old recalled, she woke up feeling nauseous. She thought it was food poisoning and opted to sleep it off but by the evening her condition had worsened.
“However, 8 p.m. rolled around and I could hardly walk and I couldn’t feel my arms or legs,” she said. “I had no idea how I was going to walk out that door. The opening music starts and I walked out onto [the] stage. I tried my best to dance but my legs were giving out. Apart from it being very embarrassing, it was very scary.”
Murgatroyd said the crew, along with husband Maksim Chmerkovskiy and brother-in-law Val Chmerkovskiy, changed the show to accommodate her.
Fortunately, she was well enough to dance Sunday night in Kansas City.
“You guys were incredible tonight,” the star shared on Instagram. “It felt so good to be back on stage.”
