Maria Menounos is a machine. She’s a cylon. She’s performing on “Dancing With the Stars” with two broken ribs and stress fractures in her foot. Not only that, but any time anyone asks her if she’s going to quit, she says. “I have a high pain tolerance.”
We chatted with Menounos, who recently started a website called “After Buzz TV.” Though she’s hurting, she says, “I don’t want to stop. I am having such an amazing time and I think that really fuels me. I also do have a pretty good tolerance for pain. I am just having so much fun I am trying not to think about any of that. I mean this has been going on since a week and a half into this, but like I said I have a high tolerance for pain. But my feet were really really hurt.”
She adds, “I have never been injured in my entire freaking life. That’s why this is so pathetic. I wrestled in the WWE multiple times. I have played football with pro-football players. I have played hockey and basketball but have never been injured. And I play full out, like crazy.”
The “Dancing With the Stars” results show will air on April 10 on ABC.
