Count on reality TV celebrity Kim Kardashian
to find ways to keep herself under the spotlight and in front of the pap’s flashing cameras. The 27-year-old amateur porn star turned model and fashion entrepreneur is heading back to reality television this time to be part of one of today’s most popular dance competitions. In fact, in an interview on On Air with Ryan Seacrest
on Monday, she confirmed that she will be part of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars
Meanwhile, Kim says that her foot injury won’t be affecting her performance on Dancing with the Stars
. In fact, she reassures fans that she will be fine, and telling E! Online that “I will be able to dance.”
Kim revealed the little mishap in her blog, stating that on Sunday night, she “was checking emails in my hotel room and placed my computer on a mirrored desk. There were parts of the glass mirror that were cracked, and when I finished up my work and got up, my foot rubbed against it and it sliced it open.”
Kim was then rushed to the emergency room, where she had her toe dermabonded instead of stitched up, as to hasten the healing process. The reality star admitted that she immediately informed Dancing
partner Mark Ballas
that she was injured, but was going to be fine by the time they begin competing on the show.
"I had to call my partner Mark [Ballas]. I feel so bad, I woke him up," Kardashian admitted during her conversation with Ryan Seacrest
. "I was like, ‘You’re going to wake up and you’re going to hear all these things, but we’re going to get through this.’"
"This is a challenge, and we’ll get through this," she added.
Aside from Kim Kardashian, the highly-anticipated seventh season of Dancing with the Stars
will include familiar faces such as singing diva Toni Braxton, Academy Award-winning actress Cloris Leachman, Hannah Montana
star Cody Linley, and former *NSYNC member Lance Bass. Bass will be paired with Lacey Schwimmer
, formerly of So You Think You Can Dance
, marking her first time appearing on the show as a pro dancer.
