Having had an entire week to recover from her rib injury, Melissa Rycroft is now ready to dance again! The former Bachelor star had to miss last Monday’s show but is now saying she is in fine shape for tonight’s Dancing With the Stars.
“This week, the difference with practice is that we can do things, and if it hurts a little bit, it’s okay,” she tells Entertainment Tonight. “I mean, it’s fine – grit your teeth and move on.”
Melissa and partner Tony Dovolani had to practice two new routines this week, the Viennese waltz and the samba. She has been using a numbing patch to help ease the pain. “It makes it tolerable, manageable,” she says.
