By Michael Lewittes



Maria Menounos powered through two broken ribs and a fractured foot while performing on “Dancing with the Stars” on Monday night, nabbing a solid score of 25 with partner Derek Hough.


The “Extra” host revealed she injured her ribs after falling on Hough’s knee during rehearsal about a week before the show’s season premiere, but refused to let the painful accident derail her from the competition.

Hough was clearly very proud of his partner’s perseverance, tweeting after their quickstep, “Most improved Miss Maria… Wahooooo !!! That’s what I’m talking about :)”

Check out the video of their quickstep below!

Who do you think will be eliminated on Tuesday?
