Maria Menounos suffered two broken ribs after she fell on partner Derek Hough's knee during rehearsal, but toughed it out on Dancing With the Stars Monday.

Menounos, 33, said her DWTS pro partner, 26, was "a little concerned" about her health, however, "I kept saying, 'We are not talking about this! We are dancing."

"I am having the best time of my life and I need to power through.'"

"I'm icing when I get home. My friend Joe drives me from rehearsals and I have a pedicure station with ice in it in my car, so I ice my whole body down."

"Once I get home, I get in the tub and in an Epsom salt bath," the Extra host says. "I can't believe how dangerous dancing is! I told Derek, 'I don't understand! I played ice hockey, football, basketball -- when did I get so fragile?'"

"Unfortunately the Hough's too rough!"

That he is, but it paid off in the form of 25 points Monday night, good enough for a second place tie with William Levy, one point behind Katherine Jenkins.

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough might be the hottest Dancing With the Stars pairing of the season, even if their debut was not so hot on technical merit.

She had the misfortune of kicking off the DWTS season premiere, and the nerves were palpable Monday. Maria will have to overcome her fears to survive.

She's with Derek, though, so expect her to stick around at least long enough to give it the old college try. Don't write the easy-on-the-eyes pair off just yet.

Watch their season-opening performance below:

Jack Wagner, Sherri Shepherd, Maria Menounos, Gavin DeGraw and Melissa Gilbert will all be among those competing on Dancing With the Stars March 19.

A pair of sports stars - Green Bay Packers wideout Donald Driver and tennis legend Martina Navratilova - will also be lacing up their dancing shoes.

Perhaps more importantly, Maksim Chmerkovskiy says he'll be back!

DeGraw is up for some serious double duty, as he will also continue his current U.S. tour for the first few weeks of the season, if he can last that long.

Gavin's pro partner, Karina Smirnoff, will most likely join him on tour so they can keep up the practicing, but none of his concerts conflict with DWTS dates.

Wagner, Heather Locklear's ex, will compete amid a minor scandal, while Menounos and Shepherd represent the entertainment show contingent.

The New England Patriots lost to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XVLI on Sunday night.

But Maria Menounos gave Bostonians a reason to smile yesterday, fulfilling her end of a wager with fellow Extra correspondent AJ Calloway... by stripping down to a Giants-colored bikini while reporting in Times Square!

Fortunately for Menounos, a long-time Pats fan, it was an unseasonably warm day in The Big Apple, with temperatures hovering around 50. We assume they were even hotter in her immediate vicinity once the reporter's clothes came off.

Bet you weren't expecting to read that when you logged on to the Internets, went to your bookmarks list and clicked on T.H. Gossip. You were probably looking to find out who Samuel Plouchart is or what 12 guys boned Lindsay Lohan over the weekend. We certainly don't blame you -- but T.H. Gossip is always digging a little deeper than the competition when it comes to celebrity news, rumors, breasts, etc.

Check it out. Maria Menounos apparently believes it's okay to inappropriately touch Big Bird, Sesame Street's beloved avian giant. Where is her hand going? Unreal. And to make matters worse, she's not the only celeb to get a lil' freaky with someone from the Street. Look at Cuba Gooding, Jr., and Elmo! Man, this kind of thing makes us sick! Run, Cookie Monster! Run!
