Dancing With the Stars Gilles Marini has been seen wearing a bandage around his right ankle while leaving the studio.
In the spring Marini had stepped on a sewing needle and broken his toe. Part of the needle was lodged in his toe, and Marini visited a specialist in Las Vegas in June to have the needle surgically removed. He filmed and posted the footage of his surgery to his Twitter page. While we're not going to post the gory footage here, the doctor is seen slowly extracting the needle from his toe and Marini declares: "I did not feel a thing. The anaesthetic shots are painful, but let me tell you, I did not feel a thing."
The needle accident does not seem to have anything to do with the bandage that is around Marini's right ankle. Marini is also having some knee pain, saying he "hurt something already," and speculated that it was his MCL. The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is one of four ligaments that stabilizes the knee joint.
We'll have to watch and see how Marini's foot injury plays out this season on DWTS, and who else injures their foot- seems like someone always goes down with a foot injury! The season premiere is Monday September 24th on ABC.
