The Dish Rag’s hanging on the carpet at the Kids Choice Awards.

We asked early arrival "Dancing with the Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba- wearing an Alice + Olivia strapless green frock why she thinks so many people get injured on the show.

"A lot of it is professional dancers pushing themselves and also celebs pushing themselves too because they know how good being on show can be for their careers/ and all the viewers. So they try to last as long as can  because its a great way for America to see them."

Has the show’s security been pumped up since the Shawn Johnson stalker incident?

"I don’t know," she said. "I  can’t comment on that  because I haven’t been there for a while. But I will be back there on Monday. I’ll tell you then!"

Yeah, Twitter us.
