"Dancing" Curse Continues -- 2 More Injured!

3/5/2009 6:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dancing With The Stars CurseThe dreaded "Dancing with the Stars Curse" has struck again -- Jewel and Nancy O'Dell have both been forced to quit the show due to dancing-related injuries!

Even with a knee full of steroids, Jewel couldn't power through the strenuous training regimen -- officials confirmed the singer fractured both of her tibias while practicing for the competition.

O'Dell was also hurt in the heat of ballroom battle -- she went down with a torn meniscus that will require surgery.

Producers haven't made any official announcements as to who will replace the two women, but there are serious rumblings that Holly Madison will take one of the spots -- and why not ... she does happen to be an expert at the horizontal mambo.

The storied "Curse" has taken down some of "Dancing's" best over the last few seasons, including -- Marie Osmond (fainted), Stacy Keibler (seizure), Susan Lucci (ankle), Jeffrey Ross (eye), Karina Smirnoff (fainted), Derek Hough (head injury), Misty May-Treanor (torn achiles), Mark Ballas (shoulder), Kym Johnson (shoulder), Toni Braxton (benign lump), Brooke Burke (foot), Julianne Hough (appendectomy), Jane Seymour (food poisoning), Cristian de la Fuente (arm), Kim Kardashian (foot) and Gilles Marini has already been diagnosed with tendinitis. And let's not forget about the most tragic injury of all ... Lisa Rinna's lips.

HOLY CROCODILE    

Maybe these girls could see they didn't have a chance to win ,so fake an injury to keep from being embarrassed on national TV. Some of the previous people had legitimate injuries .These are a little iffy.

The ratings will go down if they bring in the not to bright , plastic woman Holly.I will NOT watch,if the show is scraping the bottom of the barrel,then it is time to find another program to watch. This Holly was a paid hoooka to live with an old lethario,that is selling off art works to keep afloat!

Ballroom dancing is as hard as any other sports out there. Just go ask any of the sports stars that went out DWTS. So injury will happen just like any other sports. If you're dancing 8 hrs a day everyday, you might get some kind of injury too. There is no curse.

Rumor is they DID NOT break up, she is just taking a TEMPORARY leave from Criss - once she is booted off or finished with this gig, they will MIRACULOUSLY GET BACK TOGETHER - TRUE LOVE reigns supreme! (GAG)

Their PR people (COINCIDENTALLY who is the same guy by the way) is just printing it as a BREAK UP in order to boost Criss' Vegas ticket sales, which have been down, since Madison has been in Vegas.
