Stars "Dancing" In the Dark in Alleged Stalker Case

3/28/2009 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So the plot thickens at "Dancing With The Stars."

Melissa Rycroft: Click to watch!
"Bachelor" reject Melissa Rycroft told us the show never notified the other contestants that an alleged stalker had gotten on the lot and near the building where they were all rehearsing. Members of the crew told us they didn't know about Robert O'Ryan either.

True enough, O'Ryan allegedly had his sights set on Shawn Johnson, but an alleged stalker with two loaded guns in his car -- would have been nice to share with the others, don't you think?

I think the "quotes" should be around the word "reject" and not Bachelor.

It was reported in lots of places besides they were probably hung up on Zac's earwax just like the knobs at TMZ.

Why should the rest have been told? The stalker had no interest in them at all, they weren't in any danger.

I'm sure she knew, but played 'dumb', on the request of the DWTS producers.

I think way too much is being made of gun-totin' kooks who think dancers are mouthing "I love you" as they adjust the rabbit ears back home in the Everglades. These wackos should be denied the spotlght lest they inspire other kooks to saddle up and ride west like a shuttle astronaut in drivin' diaper.

Yes, EVERYONE should have been notified because the stalker could have held any one of them at gunpoint, asking them to lead him to Shawn.

I do not think they should have been told because they would have freaked out and security would have had a lot of phsyco celebrities on their hands.

It would be great for Tony Dovolani and Melissa Rycroft to win the trophy this season as Tony always demonstrates upbeat and professional demeanor unlike some of the others who have become negative whiners to the paps and tabloid shows. It's time for the most seasoned professional to win with his talented partner since the other female professionals have won more than once.

Go Tony and Melissa!!!

Whoever voted no on the poll, could you please explain WHY????!!!
Hopefully the same happens to you one day, but you won't run out the building because nobody warned you. Instead you'll be sitting there talking and then BLAM. A bullet in your head and your brains spewing out of you skull. MORONS.

@10- there are ways of going about that. Protocol, and if you had any common sense and understand that these things have happened in the past where the unsuspecting people were notified and escorted to safety. People freak out when they hear gunshots, or someone yells "gun!" In most cases however, if you would read a newspaper, intelligent people are calm and do things the right way. So I assume you are one of those people that freak out and don't know how to handle yourself in a situation like that.

What?! Don't these people read the newspapers or watch the TV news or listen to the radio? Of course they had to know. Word of an incident spreads fast through the grapevine. I am sure that each person's bodyguard or manager knew of this almost as soon as it happened.
