Shawn Johnson’s Ball Is Busted

Shawn Johnson will have to wait a little bit longer to fully celebrate her victory on this season’s Dancing With the Stars.

E! Online reports that the mirror-ball trophy that Johnson scored last month has been seriously damaged.

“It’s actually in pieces right now,” says her pro partner, Mark Ballas.

OMG!!! How?!!!? Why?!!?

Apparently, the trophy doesn’t handle transit all that well.

“We had to take them to New York and they shipped them back and when they opened the box, they were in pieces,” Ballas reveals. “They’re fixing them.”

Adds Johnson, “I called [Mark] and I was like, ‘My trophy’s broke!'”

That’s a shame. But look on the bright side, Shawn; compared to some of the things that your competitors had broken this last season, a trophy isn’t really that big of a deal.
