Oh no! Don Diamont (Bill, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) hasn’t even begun to compete on BALLANDO CON LE STELLE and he’s already injured himself! The actor, who is set to hit the dance floor with partner Hanna Karttunen on Saturday, March 10, shared a video to Instagram where he explained that he was getting treatment in order to be in dancing shape by the weekend! “I’m leaving Villa Stuart,” he revealed. “I had a hip injury today at the end of rehearsal. Was concerned that there might have been a fracture or maybe a soft tissue injury. But good news — we’re good to go.”
“This place is amazing,” Diamont added. “They take care of all the professional soccer players here in Rome. So many thanks to them!”
Before flying to Italy to compete in the Italian version of DANCING WITH THE STARS, Diamont also prepared himself with a series of injections for his back, which he shared in another Instagram video. “For my love of, and commitment to Italy and BALLANDO CON LE STELLE!” he wrote. Just be warned — if you’re squeamish around needles, you might not want to click play on this one!
Diamont has been flying back and forth between Los Angeles and Italy in order to tape some more scenes for B&B, but once the competition gets underway, that could prove more difficult to do. But thankfully, Bill has been shot, and is currently in the hospital, meaning that Diamont is free to dance his heart out overseas while the police try to solve the mystery of who shot him! (And once he’s back on B&B full-time, if he’s injured himself dancing, at least he’ll be able to lay in a hospital bed on set for a while!)
We’ll keep you updated on Diamont’s progress on BALLANDO CON LE STELLE as he continues to compete — hopefully he’ll do as well as his castmates who have also appeared on the show! For more B&B news, keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
