Maria Menounos rocks a Heidi Klein bikini on the cover of Shape magazine. The TV host spoke with the woman’s fitness magazine about her physical injuries and her stint on “Dancing with the Stars” in the accompanying interview.
“Don’t get me started on all of my injuries,” she said. “First I broke two ribs, next I had three stress fractures on my left foot and two in my right, then I had some sort of tendon thing I don’t understand, and I think I may have broken something in my hand. It was so bad, Derek [Hough, her partner on the show] had to give me piggyback rides everywhere. No one will ever understand the pain I went through to stay in the running, but it was worth it. To learn how to dance and have shared this experience with all my fans and loved ones was truly magical. I didn’t want my time on the show to end, but I’m thrilled and honored that I made it as far as I did.”
Though Menounos went through physical pain, she manages to show that she’s much stronger for it now. Check out her bikini-clad editorial below.
