"In the afternoon, the vomiting (and you know what) started. I thought it was food poisoning. I had fever and chills and just tried to sleep it off before the show,” Peta explained. However, by the time the show was set to begin, Peta said she "could hardly walk and I couldn't feel my arms or legs."

"I had no idea how I was going to walk out that door. The opening music starts and I walked out onto stage. I tried my best to dance, but my legs were giving out," Peta wrote. "Apart from it being very embarrassing, it was very scary. I am so sorry for not being able to give you the show you all deserved."
