LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Despite falling on his microphone pack during Monday’s dress rehearsal for “Dancing With the Stars,” Steve-O is gearing up to hit the ballroom again next week.
“I’m gonna be fine,” he told Access Hollywood on Tuesday night when he was saved from elimination alongside professional partner Lacey Schwimmer. GoGo’s singer Belinda Carlisle was sent home.
The “Jackass” star was unable to put in a final performance on Monday after he was taken to the hospital following his fall and was judged on his dress rehearsal. And he explained to Access what is wrong with his back.
“I have a hematoma,” he said. “In laymen’s terms it means I grew a third butt cheek… A sprained vessel… I have a pinched nerve and my back is [sprained].”
