Holly Madison: Braised Ribs

Betsy Waldman / March 27, 2009

Holly Madison is reportedly experiencing some pain in her rib cage.

The Dancing with the Stars contestant has injured her ribs, although E! reports that she has not broken any.

“After experiencing pain in her rib area, Holly received medical attention,” Madison’s rep stated. “While she is not suffering from a broken rib, she does continue to feel a great deal of discomfort and was prescribed pain medication.”

Madison was in the bottom two in the last DWTS elimination, but Charlie Sheen foe Denise Richards was sent on her merry way instead.

“She is committed to the show and her partner, Dmitry, and will rest when she can,” her rep continued. “She fully hopes and, at this time, expects to dance on Monday.”

Madison reportedly injured herself while rehearsing her samba.

She basically joined the club. Gilles Marini, Steve “The Woz” Wozniak and JackassSteve-O are all dancing while injured.

Madison herself replaced an injured Jewel.

Professional athletes experience less wear and tear.
