'RHOBH' Star Erika Jayne Having Surgery for 'DWTS' Injury ... Didn't Blow Off Last Dance

5/26/2017 11:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Erika Jayne wasn't being stuck-up on the finale of "Dancing with the Stars" like some fans accused her of being -- she skipped the final group performance because she needed surgery.

The 'Real Housewives' star is at an L.A. hospital Friday to have surgery to fix an upper body tear she suffered during the show. Sources with 'DWTS' tell us ... Jayne felt like something was wrong during a dance in early April.

Doctors confirmed the injury, but we're told she pressed on without telling anyone ... because she didn't want to play the sympathy card. She was eliminated shortly thereafter.

Doctors told her she should stop all dancing after that, which is why she sat on the sidelines -- on top of a unicorn -- during the finale.

We reached out to ABC about Erika's injury ... they had no comment.

EXCLUSIVE


"Alaskan Bush People" star Matt Brown needed 9 staples in his head after an explosion in his fridge landed him in the hospital.

Our sources in Alaska tell us the accident happened Tuesday night in Matt's Hoonah, AK crib. Apparently, he'd filled a mason jar with gunpowder and cannon fuse, and stored it in his fridge. Doesn't seem like the smartest move, but if you haven't seen the show ... the Browns march to the beat of their own drum. 

Lo and behold ... the mason jar exploded, and blew the fridge door off its hinges, and into Matt's head.

He went to a hospital, got stapled back together and was released. Now, we know what you're thinking, and no ... this wasn't a stunt for the show. 'ABP' wasn't shooting at the time.
