Why didn't we know about this??
Raquel Welch has been nursing her foot back to health… since Christmas!
But the thing is this — it should have healed a LONG time ago, but she refuses to rest it and nurse it properly!
How'd she do it?
She fell down a flight of stairs on Christmas Day, but would not let the accident stall her work commitments!
Here's what she said:
"I get injured doing everything. Christmas Day I came home from dinner and I fell down the stairs and broke my left foot. It was horrible because all I could think of, being an actress, while I was falling was, 'My God, I've got a shoot next week and I won't be able to wear those high heels.' They (doctors) wanted to put me in a wheelchair and I said, 'No you won't. I'll figure it out!'"
Health comes first! Gotta take care of that foot, you don't want to be hobbling around forever because it didn't heal properly!!
