Jewel Ready to Dance
Dancing With the Stars contestant Jewel, who is recovering from tendonitis in her knees, reports that she will be "good to go" for the show after resting.
She shares on her website, "[The physical therapist] said if I take time now to heal that I will be good to go by next week. I hate missing these days, but it's all for the best in the long run, because I'm in it for the long haul and I wanna win it!" Jewel also jokes that husband Ty Murray and his dance partner Chelsea are taking advantage of her being sidelined. "We do like to joke about it being a race. Ty said that he thinks his best chance of beating me is if I get pregnant during the show so I would be too tired to dance!" The new season of Dancing With the Stars premieres March 9 on ABC-TV.
