Injured Jewel Dancing With the Stars, NOT

She was psyched for the competition, but Jewel’s appearance on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars has been cancelled due to injuries. The singer collapsed during early rehearsals for the top-rated dance show. What was initially thought to be an attack of tendonitis or ligament strains turned out to be much more serious — fractured tibia in both legs. The “stress fractures,” just below her knees, were reportedly very painful, forcing Jewel to withdraw from the competition. Doctors expect a recovery period of 6-9 weeks. Her husband, rodeo champion Ty Murray, will go ahead with his participation in the show. Also forced to pull out of the competition due to injury was TV host Nancy O’Dell, who suffered cartilage tears in both of her knees. Replacements for the two stars have yet to be named.
