Jodie Sweetin suffered two injuries while practicing for Monday’s episode of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.” The “Fuller House” actress and her partner, Keo Motsepe, have been rehearsing all week for Famous Dance Night, but it appears the duo has been having a few problems with the routine.
Keo and Jodie were given a contemporary dance and will have to re-create Pink’s routine from her music video “Try” for the April 25 show. According to Entertainment Tonight, the pair was practicing a lift Tuesday when Keo accidentally hit Jodie in the face with his arm. Thankfully, Jodie didn’t break her nose, but she did cry out in pain, and Keo rushed to find ice for her.
As previously reported, the 34-year-old actress also hurt herself Thursday practicing another move from the same performance. This time, while Jodie was attempting to lower herself to the ground and flip Keo over her body, he apparently lost balance and landed on her ankle.
Again Jodie cried out in pain and through tears told her partner that she didn’t “want to be done” with the competition. It’s not clear how severe Jodie’s ankle injury was, but she was taken to the hospital. So far, Keo and Jodie have not mentioned her condition on social media, and it’s up in the air whether she will be well enough to hit the dance floor Monday night.
According to E! Online, a rep for Jodie said she has been “resting her foot and taking it day by day.”
“This is one of the toughest nights of the season, as the couple has to take on famous dances and recreate some of the greatest routines of all the time,” the rep continued.
“Dancing With the Stars” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC.
