In order to avoid getting sympathy votes, Kathy Ireland kept it a secret that she suffered a knee injury while training for Dancing With The Stars. Apparently, the injury was so extensive that Kathy will be requiring surgery…
Kathy posted on her Twitter account last Friday: “The truth is… after my little spin on DWTS am going 2 have knee surgery.” “Did not want people 2 know during voting process because sympathy votes & drama not my thing. Have not told many in my family. You heard it here 1st,” she continued.
When Tony Dovolani and Kathy were eliminated the third week, Kathy said that her leg was “twisted, torn, [and] needing surgical repair.” Kathy also tweeted that she will have surgery after the finale on November 24th. “Will dance, dance, dance…whatever—no sympathy votes 2 worry about anymore,” she wrote.
