Jewel is the latest victim to succumb to the Dancing with the Stars curse!
The songstress might have to drop out of the competition due to a knee injury she sustained by overexerting herself during rehearsals!
Jewel took to her blog on Wednesday to dish all the disappointing details!
"Well, I feel kinda bummed today.
I guess I really over did it on the rehearsal front! My knees have been hurting so badly that I finally broke down and talked to Ty's knee doctor yesterday. He said I have tendonitis in my knees and that I have to start a course of medicine to try and bring the swelling down. Yuck! It's mainly my left knee, and I can't believe I hurt it so badly… Ty warned me I was over doing it, and now he got a big ol' 'I told you so' in. The worst part is that I can't rehearse for the next couple days. It was just so fun to dance 8 hours a day- especially considering I only had 3 weeks to cram not only for my first dance- cha cha, but to learn the fundamentals of about 6 other dances that I will have to know. But now I'm just worried I won't even be able to dance! Hopefully these steroids will really do the trick and I can keep bad flare ups at a bay in the future…
I'm gonna ice my knee- talk to you all soon!
This season of DWTS would be lacking without your lovely presence, Jewel!
The question now is…
Who's next to wind up hurting themselves???
We put our $$$ on the Woz!
