Maria Menounos Breaks Two Ribs On Dancing With The Stars

You might not have noticed because Maria Menounos still managed to tie for second place on Dancing With The Stars last night, but the girl's got two broken ribs! Maria Menounos fell on her partner Derek Hough’s knee and is now still on the mend from two broken ribs. Derek said it actually happened about a week before the cha cha, but she’s doing great. He wanted Maria to sit out or slow down during rehearsals but the TV host is a total trooper. Maria kept saying: "We are not talking about this! We are dancing. I am having the best time of my life and I need to power through.” Maria says a friend drives her home from rehearsals and she has a pedicure station with ice in her car, so she ices her whole body down. Maria says she didn't know dancing was so hard: "I played ice hockey, football, basketball – when did I get so fragile? Unfortunately the Hough’s too rough!” So if you thought the Viennese Waltz looked “easy” and “boring.” Hah, dancing will break your bones!
