The Cuban hottie is down. Repeat, the Cuban hottie is down! Actor - and "Dancing With the Stars" contestant William Levy severely hurt his ankle over the weekend, putting his status for Monday night's episode in serious question. However, he ended up powering through the pain to shake it to his roots during Latin night.
"Just Wanted to let u know that I injured my right ankle pretty bad during rehearsal. MRI tomorrow. I'll let u all know .. Love u all," he tweeted on late Sunday night. His partner, Cheryl Burke, added to the concern with her own tweet.
"Hoping that everything turns out ok with Williams ankle injury," she wrote. "Unfortunately things like this happens but praying it's nothing serious."
It seems like everyone is getting some sort of injury on the 14th season of the hit ABC dance competition.
Former "Little House on the Prairie" actress Melissa Gilbert was seriously injured during last week's taping of "Dancing With the Stars" - she was even carted off to the emergency room during the show. Diagnosis: Concussion.
"As a result of hitting her head during the dance [Monday], Melissa has a mild concussion and whiplash. She is at home, resting comfortably and looking forward to her next dance," her rep said.
She must be a curse - her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, also hurt himself doing tricks during rock week. He also pulled his groin while practicing for the Paso Doble with Gilbert. We're sure that was the first thing the ladies man got fixed - you can't keep a sexy man down!
Legendary singer Gladys Knight hasn't exactly been sidelined with serious injuries yet, but she had gained some serious bruises during practice for the show.
"I've had sore feet, I've had sore hip, I've had sore back, I've had it all, but you have to be aggressive about taking care of yourself," she told OnTheRedCarpet.com.
"Extra" correspondent Maria Menounos has danced through the pain - literally - during several weeks on "Dancing With the Stars." The pretty lady admitted she's danced with both broken ribs and a broken foot bone while on the show. The broken ribs came courtesy of a fall on partner Derek Hough's knee during practice. Ouch!
"I don't want people to think that every week I'm busted," she told E! a few weeks ago. "All [the injuries] happened within the first week and a half. Everything just hit me like a ton of bricks. I wasn't prepared and it just happened.
