Say it ain’t so, Misty!

The news continues to swirl about the Web: “Dancing with the Stars” contestant Misty May-Treanor is probably out of the competition. The Olympic gold medalist volleyball player, who scored a 21 out of 30 with professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy for their paso doble routine last week, allegedly suffered a torn Achilles tendon. Devastating on so many levels, not the least of which is its impact on her volleyball career.

ABC says it won’t confirm or deny her continuing on with the show but everything points to her departure. That’s sad, considering she and Maks displayed some of the best dancing prowess this season.
