As Romeo and Chelsea Hightower snagged the first 10 of the season, two contestants on Dancing With the Stars were singing a different tune. Find out what Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff dished about her fall!
Karina tells OK!, “You know, gravity is a bitch.” While she notes that Ralph picked her up in “nano seconds” she adds, “My butt, I was like, whoop I’m on the ground! I tripped and literally went down on the side of my leg.”
Despite the unanticipated fall, Ralph makes light of it. “Did you watch? It was a great number. We did it all the way through, it’s live theater!”
In those seconds when she was down, she certainly wasn’t out. Ralph tells reporters it’s “a race track versus a railroad track.” He adds, “There was one moment, and then she goes “every body over here, every body over there” and we knew that we had a step there. So at that point we just went….(makes a movement) and that was the time to go back. We did the whole thing and all the stuff, we were thrown, but what do you do?”
Considering Kirstie fell and now Karina, looks like it may be someone else next week. Team Kamacchio says they’re not going to do it again. Karina adds, “We’ll give it to someone else, pass it on.”
