There has to be a Dancing With The Stars curse! Before this season even began Dancing With The Stars lost two of its contestants when both Jewel and Nancy O’Dell had to leave the competition due to injuries they sustained during rehearsals. Gilles Marini developed tendonitis in his shoulder and groin too, but has been able to perform despite it. Now we hear that Steve Wozniak has fractured his foot…what else besides a curse could be taking the dancers down one by one?
“I didn’t want to worry anyone unduly.” Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak mentioned on his blog this morning. He had been feeling pain in his foot and after having an X-Ray and an MRI it was revealed that he has a foot fracture.
Karina Smirnoff, his professional dance partner accompanied Steve Wozniak to Cedars-Sinai hospital, worried that she had lost her partner, but Steve Wozniak was given a removable cast and the okay to dance as long as he is very careful and wears the cast faithfully when not rehearsing or performing.
In an e-mail to his Facebook Support Group, Steve Wozniak said he told his doctors he is determined to continue with Dancing With The Stars because he “loves being part of such a good and important thing.”
