Ultimately Melissa and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were chosen as the second couple to take their leave for their dance floor-- An announcement that brought the Little House on the Prarie star to tears.
"I'm amazed that I even made it this far," said Melissa, who coincidentally turned 48 tonight. "The things that I was able to do and the things that were able to overcome to have been here on this day, does make it a really incredible birthday."
Both eliminated couples are slated to appear tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Good Morning America tomorrow.
