The show isn't even on the air yet for its 13th season, but Ricki Lake is already feeling the stress as she's injured her ankle during rehearsals:
The 42-year-old former talk show host twisted her ankle while practicing her moves with dance partner Derek Hough.
But, in true Ricki style, the show (or the rehearsal) must go on — an insider exclusively told that after she suffered the injury an ambulance was called to the rehearsal studios but, like the total trooper she is, she refused to go to the hospital.
If she was injured even a little bit, it might not have been smart to call off the ambulance! She's going to have to dance on that ankle and it's only the beginning of the season!
But, that doesn't mean that waving off hospital help wasn't pretty badass.
We just hope she's okay!
Good luck, Ricki!
