In an injury that could affect this Sunday’s WrestleMania XXVIII Divas Tag Team Match featuring Kelly Kelly and Maria Menounos against Beth Phoenix and Eve, New York Post gossip column Page Six reported Monday that the Menounos broke a rib during a recent dancing rehearsal for Dancing with the Stars.

She broke the rib during a hardcore rehearsal with dance partner Derek Hough, who was teaching her the Cha-cha-cha. A source says, “She has been in excruciating pain for the past few weeks during rehearsals, but she is staying strong and working through it. She refuses to give up.”

Page Six adds Menounos is hiding a rib brace underneath her dancing gear.

Menounos confirmed the injury to Extra Monday, the entertainment news program she hosts. She says she suffered two broken ribs during a recent dance rehearsal. She will nonetheless perform on tonight’s Dancing with the Stars.

    Surprised nobody has suggested this yet… but what about Natalya as her replacement? Too obvious?

    Also, I like how the article reads, “the Menunous broke a rib.” Ha ha! Really, editors?

    The only diva who doesnt care about this is probably Alicia Fox who only cares about which outfit she is going to wear.

  • Pissed Off Fan =(

    I mean if she cant go at WM then just have a ladder match for the divas title

  • Mark

    I agree , she cant compete like that . put in Layla or Kharma if shes ok

  • Bastion boogeyman

    She broke her ribs because I pumped so much cum into her stomach.

  • M. Night Shyamalan

    This is exactly what I like…what a twist!

    Time To Call Trish Stratus !! ! ! ! !!

    Oh shiz! Now the crappy divas match might actually have a chance to be something a little less than crappy. They could probably save the match if they throw in Layla or something as a comeback. Who knows. WE all know WWE sucks balls. We shall see.

  • Tom… Just Tom

    Wow! She is tougher than half of the WWE diva roster.

  • Dave

    I’ll give her credit. If she’s working, preparing for Wrestlemania and doing Dancing With The Stars with 2 broken ribs, then that girl is legitimately tough.
