Ginger Zee Injured Pelvis, Will Dance Monday Night On Dancing With The Stars

According to ABC, Ginger Zee hurt her pelvis last week. She still plans to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Below are more details. Let’s hope she’s going to be ok.

Dancing With The Stars” finalist Ginger Zee just suffered a setback ahead of the show’s finale.

The “Good Morning America” meteorologist injured her pelvis earlier this week during rehearsals for a contemporary routine with her professional partner, Val Chmerkovskiy.

Zee told ABC News that after feeling a “lower back spasm” at home that “takes your breath away,” she continued to rehearse.

“By Wednesday, I went to see a physical therapist for the show, Gina [Minchella], and she said my pelvis was forward and an inch off,” she continued. “I came back the next day, and [my pelvis] was backward and an inch the other way. My pelvis was just moving all over.”

“My pelvis is very loose and unstable…because I just had a baby,” Zee, 35, added.

In a preview of Monday’s episode, Zee is seen crying during physical therapy due to the pain.

“I was crying not just from pain but I was more fearful and more frustrated because at this point in the competition every single minute counts,” she explained, “especially for a non-dancer repetition is everything. It gives you confidence…and without the ability to do that, it’s scary.”

Minchella told ABC News that Zee was diagnosed with sacral instability along with a lumbar or lower back sprain.

“It can happen to any person,” Minchella said. “It happens a lot to women because our hormones play a huge role in the ligaments in our pelvis.”

“For someone who is dancing with extreme conditions from flips to lifts and one-legged turns and all that, this kind of thing can happen a lot faster,” she added.

Zee said despite her injury, she plans to take the ballroom floor on Monday night.

“It’s not like I’m taking a risk that I’m going to injure my back for the rest of my life,” she added of why she’s competing. “I’m planning to [perform,] so we’re going to do everything we can to rest.”

ETA: According to E Online, it’s unknown if Ginger will be able to perform.

DWTS Season 22, Week 9 – Dancing by the Numbers

Since this past week won’t actually result in an elimination all on it’s own, I took my time writing this and I’m doing it on my new MacBook, so I’m learning at the same time.  🙂

Well, last Monday sucked pretty bad – the one bright spot being that Paige got through to the final which makes me very happy. Last Monday was the first week that I was mostly wrong on who was going home. Wanya was my third choice – bummed about that, but at least we lost Antonio. We still have someone in the final who really shouldn’t be there and that’s Ginger. I would say “that’s how it goes sometimes” but I won’t because the pimping has been relentless. The takeover of every single DWTS segment on GMA is one thing…but the DWTS official twitter accounts are sickening with their focus on Ginger. Have you seen their latest photo of the finalists with Ginger right out in front? It’s not even subtle any more. I don’t get it. She seems like a nice woman, sure – but she’s not all that as a dancer and Val is doing nothing for her in terms of choreography. Their motives are pretty transparent – she’s family. Read more..

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)
