The Dancing With The Stars drama just doesn’t stop for Kenya Moore. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star found herself in the bottom once again. But she is also reporting some injuries sustained in the ballroom.

Kenya Moore describes her dance-related injury

As any DWTS fan knows, injuries are all too common in the ballroom.

“I wasn’t feeling good. Last night, I danced through an injury today to my ribs, [my] knee is bad,” the reality tv star told Us Weekly as Disney Week wrapped up. “Like, I have so many things that are going on, but even dancing through the pain, — not just physical pain, but emotional pain — It’s been difficult.”

Although Kenya and her partner Brandon Armstrong seemingly performed well through Villains Night, the injury apparently occurred during Heroes Night.

“When I jumped on him, I think I just landed wrong. I landed on my two bottom ribs, and I thought I broke them,” Kenya told the publication. “In fact, in the air, I was sure I broke my ribs. I just went [gasp] and I couldn’t breathe.”

However, she revealed that she has seen a doctor, who assured her that she’s going to be just fine. The injury will just take a while to heal. Meanwhile, Kenya also admitted that Brandon feels pretty guilty about injuring her during the routine.

But either way, she isn’t about to let an injury stop her.

“When you dance with the pain, you know, we dance through it,” she told Us Weekly. “And that’s what I think champions are made of too — just having that focus and making sure that nothing gets in your way.”

DWTS fans react after a controversial elimination

Kenya Moore and Brandon Armstrong will be back to perform in the ballroom for another week. However, not every fan is happy about the way things went down. 

During Villains Night, Kenya and Brandon found themselves in the bottom yet again alongside Brian Austin Green and Sharna Burgess and Lindsay Arnold and Matt James.

Brian and Sharna were eliminated first since they had the lowest score. This left the judges to choose between the remaining two.

Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba both voted to save Matt and Lindsay. Derek Hough chose to save Kenya Moore and Brandon Armstrong. Len Goodman also ultimately chose to save Kenya and Brandon. That would leave the judges evenly split. However, Len said he was the tiebreaker vote. This left many fans confused and upset.

But either way, Matt and Lindsay went home and Kenya and Brandon stayed.

Tune in next week to see how the remaining couples perform during “Grease Night.” You won’t want to miss a second of the action!
