Danica McKellar Broke Her Rib in DWTS Rehearsals! Will She Dance on Latin Night? (VIDEO)
UPDATE: Danica shared an update later on Friday night: "Had rehearsal today.. it's tough dancing with a broken rib. @iamvalc choreographed an amazing routine- fingers crossed I can pull it off! :/" So it sounds like she's going to give it the old college try. Good luck!
Danica tweeted her scary update on Friday, April 25: "So...I broke a rib in yesterday's#DWTS rehearsal. Trying my best to pull thru and could use your prayers!! #wanttokeepdancing." Yikes. Prayers on the way, D!
Her partner, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, added this tweet shortly after Danica’s: "Very very tough week #very." When you have to hashtag “very,” you know it’s getting bad.
The final seven couples have two dances on Monday, April 28 — Danica and Val have Salsa, and then a Team Loca dance, which is reportedly Samba.
It’s not clear yet how Danica got hurt or what this could mean for her Latin Night performances. She says she wants to keep dancing, but will a doctor say that’s not a good idea? All DWTS couples end up with bumps, bruises, and various injuries, but a broken rib is pretty serious. At the very least, this will slow her down on a week when even more is expected of her.
Good luck to both Danica and Val in getting through this very tough week. Heal fast!
