The headline above is, admittedly, a bit misleading.
Ricki Lake suffered a cut and a nasty bruise on her shin Thursday while rehearsing for the new season of Dancing with the Stars with partner Derek Hough.
She's not out of the competition by any means, but she did Tweet a photo of the wound, so ... here we are. Check out the season's first battle scar:
Lake, who said upon being cast that she was terrified to participate in the ABC show, is considered one of the favorites going in ... or at least was.
Who knows if this will throw her off her game.
An ambulance was called, but Lake downplayed the situation, Tweeting: "Not sure how my bruise turned into a medic showing up? I'm fine!! :)"
Later, she Tweeted at former DWTS star Kirstie Alley, who was a hit last season: "I've got my work cut out for me. Channeling ya' mama. xo".
Who will win Dancing With the Stars, which begins September 19? Lake? Chaz Bono? Kristin Cavallari? Vote in our survey after the jump ...
