Alfonso Ribeiro Might Have To Leave ‘DWTS’ After Injuring Himself Doing The Carlton Dance

Sad news from the set of Dancing With the Stars, as TMZ is reporting that Alfonso Ribeiro might have to leave the show due to a tumbling cascade of injuries he first suffered doing the Carlton Dance a few weeks ago.

Our DWTS sources say Ribeiro injured his back during rehearsal Wednesday night as he tried to overcompensate for a groin injury which he suffered on the show, performing his signature move.

The back injury is bad — he’s having trouble even walking. Alfonso skipped rehearsals Thursday so he could get an MRI. [TMZ]

This is, if I understand irony correctly, and I think I do, almost exactly like rain on your wedding day. What a cruel, cruel world.
