LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Cheryl Burke is recovering after injuring her leg on Monday night’s “Dancing with the Stars.”
“It’s still bothering her, but I think the fact [that] we had a day off, [Tuesday] was good,” Chris Jericho, Cheryl’s celebrity partner on Season 12 of “Dancing” told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson on Tuesday night after the show.
The “Dancing” beauty had to be treated following Monday night’s competition show after hurting her leg, but the pair is already moving on.
“She’s tough, she’s a dancer and it happens,” Chris said of Cheryl’s injury. “But she did hit the floor hard, I know exactly when it happened and I was like, ‘Ooh!’ in the back of my mind.”
Now though, the wrestling star said his partner is already working on new moves for next week’s dance.
“She wants to go start choreographing, she gets very angsty at this point in time,” Chris noted.
Chris and Cheryl will tackle the Viennese waltz on next week’s show, with a twist.
“All the songs have a patriotic vibe to it,” he said. “I’m excited… I’ve never done the Viennese waltz, I saw a bunch of people do different interpretations this week; I heard Len [Goodman] yell at Mark [Ballas] because this dance is 300 years old and you’re flopping around like a fish.
“I don’t know which Cheryl has in mind but I’m looking forward to it and I’m excited to continue the ball rolling and do better next week than I did this week, that’s all I can ask for,” he added.
