Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey is fresh off her win on Dancing with the Stars, but isn’t taking much time to celebrate before heading to the operating room.
“I ruptured a disc, and I’m gonna go home today and I’m probably gonna have surgery this week or sometime next week,” Jennifer said. “It’s just gonna be like a little surgery where they take out the ruptured disc thing, and you know, it won’t be a big deal. Compared to the other surgeries I had on my neck, my doctor says it won’t be a big deal. I’ll be home that night.”
Jennifer is in good spirits about the surgery and wouldn’t take back her experience with Dancing no matter what, even though her injury nearly prevented her from competing in the last two dances.
“I gotta tell you, the win and the experience of doing — more the experience of doing ‘Dancing with the Stars’ — already, like I don’t even remember the pain I was in a week ago. I just have some discomfort in back that needs to be taken care of. OK, it’s a little more than discomfort.”
We hope the surgery goes well and she recovers quickly — she needs to be dancing again!!
