'Dancing With the Stars' forces Jennifer Grey into back surgery




That Dancing With the Stars victory really cost Jennifer Grey. The 50-year-old told Access Hollywood she has to have surgery on her back as a result of competing on the show.

"It's just going be like a little surgery where they take out the ruptured disc thing, and you know, it won't be a big deal," she says, noting the procedure will be later this week or next week. "Compared to the other surgeries I had on my neck, my doctor says it won't be a big deal. I'll be home that night."

Poor jen has been under the knife a lot, considering her 1987 car accident, which gave her chronic neck pain and resulted in a steel palte being put in her neck, and having to have her thyroid removed after cancer was discovered last year. We'd be afraid to go to the hospital with a track record like that.
