I'm telling you, people. Spying on those illegal lifts can cause serious neck damage. Just ask Dancing with the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba, who went under the knife for arthritis mere days after this season of Dancing with the Stars wrapped up last month.
"The space around my spinal cord has become compressed. I have been locked. My neck was so stiff. We're hoping this procedure will relieve that. I'll be fine and if this surgery goes well, I may have another one in the future," she tells People, quoted in E! Online.
But injuries are dime a dozen on Dancing with the Stars, and Carrie Ann's recovery became swift. In fact, she attended fund-raiser in Los Angeles in the same week.
Inaba, 41, said she was happy to have all the movement in her body back post-surgery. And now that she had, she's back to doing what she does best.
"I have class Monday, Wednesday and Friday," she added. "I'm back to my normal schedule and I can't wait!"
The other Dancing with the Stars celebs are off to Broadway, including Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kym Johnson, runner-up Mya has a stint on Mercy, while third placer Kelly Osbourne was off to a romantic holiday with her boyfriend.
