‘Dancing with the Stars 2011’ Ricki Lake injures her ankle

Ricki’s okay

‘Dancing with the Stars’ contestant Ricki Lake has been busting her butt getting ready for the show’s premiere on September 19, but unfortunately the actress has injured herself while in rehearsals today.

Ricki has been fabulous about updating her fans on her daily DWTS news through her Twitter account, so when she injured herself at the studio today, she let everyone know what happened and assured fans that she is okay.  She said;

“Look, my first injury. #DWTS @derekhough. Don’t ask how it happened. Not sure how my bruise turned into a medic showing up? I’m fine!!”

Lake also posted a picture of her injury which helped her fans worry about her a little less as it didn’t look too bad, but still that’s some rough luck to be getting injured this early in.
