Kathy Ireland concealed DWTS injury because she didn’t want “sympathy votes”
Kathy Ireland was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars in its second week, but has only now revealed that she needs knee surgery. That’s surprising considering how much the ABC series revels in injury porn.
On Friday, she wrote, over two tweets, “the truth is… after my little spin on DWTS am going 2 have knee surgery. Did not want people 2 know” “during voting process becuz sympathy votes & drama not my thing. Have not told many in my family.”
The revelation was prompted by an unnamed tabloid’s forthcoming story about her injury. Before revealing the injury, Kathy wrote, “Seeking advice from you…learned a tabloid is planning story on my DWTS experience. Do I ignore or bore you here with details b4 it runs?”
