Ricki Lake, Twitter


OK, so maybe the word injury is a little strong. After all, it could certainly be worse.

But that was the word jokingly used by one Dancing With the Stars contestant this morning when she posted a pic of her leg that appears to be marred with an oh-so-slight cut.

"Look, my first injury," she tweeted. "Don't ask how it happened."

Well, who should we direct our concerns to then?

One Mr. Derek Hough, because that banged-up leg belongs to Ricki Lake, who will be joining the three-time champ on the floor this season.

A rep for Lake told E! News that "all is well with Ricki," who suffered a small bruise but most certainly did not need an ambulance (one was spotted at the rehearsal space).

"It is possible that an ambulance was responding to a call elsewhere on the same street," the rep said. "Ricki is fine and dancing her heart out!"

And we bet you want to know more about that, so watch the video below to see how her rehearsals with Hough are going as they prepare to battle in the ballroom starting Sept. 19.
