EXCLUSIVE: Jodie Sweetin nearly broke her nose during 'DWTS' rehearsals before injuring ankle
Jodie Sweetin has had a rough week on Dancing With the Stars.
The Fuller House star was hospitalized on Thursday after injuring her ankle while prepping for next week's show, and now, ET has an exclusive look at another injury the 34-year-old actress sustained during this week's rehearsals.
On Tuesday, Sweetin and pro partner Keo Motsepe were attempting a lift for their dance -- which is set to Pink's "Try" and similar to the singer's ambitious acrobatic performance at the 2012 American Music Awards -- when Motsepe accidentally hit Sweetin in the face. While the actress' nose was not broken, the injury was clearly painful and derailed the day's rehearsal.
Sweetin rallied later in the week, but could not battle through Thursday's ankle injury, which occurred when the pair were rehearsing with choreographers R.J. Durell and Nick Florez, who came up with Pink's original performance. The actress is said to have hurt herself during a complicated flip that occurs after she basically lifts her partner off the ground (at the 3:10 mark).
Sweetin isn't the first Fuller House star to injure herself on DWTS. In season 18, Sweetin's onscreen older sister, Candace Cameron Bure, also hurt her foot, but still managed to place third.
There is still no word on whether or not Sweetin will perform on Monday's show due to her ankle injury. See one of her stunning performances from earlier this season in the video below.
