'Skating with the Stars' Contestant Rushed to Hospital

12/6/2010 5:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Skating with the Stars" contestant Brandon Smith was taken to a hospital moments ago after throwing up while on set ... TMZ has learned.

Brandon Smith Hosiptalized
Sources tell TMZ ... a 911 call was made from the CBS lot in L.A. -- where the "Skating" set is located -- at 11:43 AM PT.

We're told Smith -- who stars in "Sonny with a Chance" with Demi Lovato -- was throwing up and having difficulty breathing ... and had to be taken by ambulance to a local hospital.

Sources connected with the show tell TMZ Brandon was sick when he arrived on set today -- and it's unclear if he'll be able to skate during tonight's show.

UPDATE 1:30 PM: A rep for the show tells TMZ, "He was throwing up on set and we think it is food poisoning."

UPDATE 3:40 PM: We're told Brandon will not be performing on tonight's show.

I hope he is ok. I have watched the show and he is by far the best skater on it but with that said it really is a train wreck of a show, really bad.

Probably just a panic attack when he realized he's in such a STUPID show. There goes the street cred.

Uh    

Understanding the way censorship is implemented here, it is hard to realize the advertising that is allowed with more frequency. Unless, of course, TMZ gets a fee for such drivel..."casting", "Kookie" , "Online Store",etc....all very relevant to this blog entry??

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?)

Has the guy never been sick before? He had to go to the HOSPITAL by AMBULANCE for throwing up? What a tough guy.

This show is sooooooooooooooooooooooooo bad, but it is CHEAP TO PUT OUT and that's all that counts Make big $$$$ in advertising and very little going out. The networks really think we are stupid and watch any thing.
