Debi Mazar isn't about to let an injury get in the way of her competing on Dancing With the Stars…yet.

The tough-as-nails Entourage actress tells me she's going in for an MRI today to check on the pulled neck muscle she suffered while doing the fox-trot on Tuesday night.

"I'm one of those people who have a very high tolerance to pain," she says. "I power through it. I can be half dead but I keep going forward."

Debs says her professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy doesn't realize his own strength sometimes...

"I have to start telling him if it's hurting," Debi says. "He needs to stop, figure it out and change the f--king choreography."

And it's not just her neck that's hurting. She has a big bruise on the top of her left hand. "It's from Maks grabbing my hand and spinning me and pulling me in and pulling me out," she says.

But, she jokes, she'll get back at him during next week's tango. They're dancing to the cover of "Roxeanne" from director and guest judge Baz Luhrmann's musical movie Moulin Rouge.

"It's really sexy, but I get to abuse Maks in it," Debi says. "I'm gonna have fun with it."

Maksim, you've been warned!
