'Skating' Star Slashed on Set -- 'Bleeding All Over'

12/6/2010 6:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Another medical emergency on "Skating with the Stars" -- this time involving bloodshed -- after one of the pros was slashed by her partner's skate during rehearsals.



Brooke Castile was rehearsing for tonight's show with partner Jonny Moseley -- an Olympic gold medalist skier -- when she stumbled and fell and his skate sliced her finger down to the bone. 

Brooke began "bleeding all over" -- and had to be taken to a local hospital where she's currently being stitched up.

But get this -- right now, Brooke is telling people she still plans on skating tonight.

i have never ice skated for that very reason. i was always fearful that i would fall with my hands flat on the ice & some show off would come speeding around & slice my fingers off with those blades. glad to know i wasn't always just being paranoid.

Yeah...it just seems like a bad idea to try to get celebs to learn something in a few weeks that when it takes many people years to learn.

I think it's fairly safe to say that no one is really watching this show and it's too dangerous, so let's not kill the golden goose shall we, ABC? Quietly cancel it and burn off the episodes you've taped.

Chefs slice or nip their fingers all the time, doesn't mean the restaurant has to shut down. We duct tape the finger back into place and move on until the end of the service. She's just being professional.

The good news for the show is tonight they'll have their highest ratings of the season... The bad news is that one of the skaters can only give it 'one thumb up.' (Too soon?)

I never could believe this idea for a show when I first heard about it. I was a professional skater in my youth, both figure and speedskating and it was very difficult to do. I spent every day of the week at the rink for practice and private coaching etc., and to me it seems utterly ridiculous let alone dangerous to make a show such as this. I feel sorry for all involved as now it seems even the pros are in danger due to the inability of the amateurs who take part. Just plain stupid.
