DWTS, Evan Lysaceck


Things are getting really freaky for Evan Lysacek and his broken toes.

"Someone set up a Twitter page for my toes," Lysacek told me earlier today. "Evanstoe tweets more times a day than I do!"

While toe tweets may be funny, Lysaceck isn't exactly laughing about the piggies he injured during his Dancing With the Stars training. "They hurt," the Olympic gold medalist said. "It's a throbbing pain, which doesn't feel good, but at the same time I'm not going to let it affect me too much."

What do doctors have to say about the injury? Read on to find out…

There's really not much you can do for broken toes, is there?
I've seen three good doctors, and they've all said the same thing: ice them, take painkillers and tape them up. I've had much worse injuries. I've skated with a stress fracture in my hip and my foot. That's much more painful.

Do you have to keep going to doctors to make sure everything is healing correctly?
I've had three appointments this week, but I'm done with them. There's a great doctor that's affiliated with the show who gave me some topical painkillers so that I'm not constantly taking painkillers, because they're so hard on my stomach.

How is training on the road going while you're doing Stars on Ice between Dancing With the Star shows? I picture you practicing in hotel lobbies.
We've been booking the ballrooms at the hotels. They put a floor down for us, but it's not the same. There will be a piece of wedding cake on the floor or some leftover pepperoni from a Bar Mitzvah or something.

What do you say to people who think the show is rigged because they think Kate Gosselin should have gone home last week or Buzz Aldrin, but not Shannen Doherty?
The truth is Shannen did incredibly well, and she showed so much improvement from week one to week two. I don't know how many people know this but Mark [Ballas] separated his knee from the bone in dress rehearsal, went to Cedars and Shannen was learning the number with a different partner because no one thought Mark was going to make it back…There's no way they should have gone home. But at the same time, Kate showed a huge improvement last night, and that's what the show is all about.
