Ricki Lake is the first Dancing With The Stars contestant to suffer an injury while practicing for the hit ABC show.
Producers were forced to call an ambulance for the 42-year-old talk show host after she twisted her ankle while rehearsing with professional dancer Derek Hough.
Ricki Tweeted the above photo and the following:
- "Not sure how my bruise turned into a medic showing up? I'm fine!!"
We're told Ricki refused to be taken to the hospital and remained at rehearsal.
UPDATE: Video of Ricki Lake still at practice ... coming soon!
Do you think the injury was staged?
