LATEST: Socialite Kim Kardashian has assured fans her recent hospitalisation for a foot injury will not halt her appearance on forthcoming U.S. reality TV show Dancing With The Stars.
Kardashian was reportedly admitted to New York Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday (24Aug08) night after slicing her foot on a glass coffee table in her hotel room.
But the star is determined to keep up with the gruelling rehearsals that lie ahead for the show, despite her bloody debacle.
She says: "You know what, I will be able to dance. I will make it. I did cut my foot pretty badly in the hotel room last night.
"There was a mirror on a Venetian little desk and it was all broken and I saw it and I almost cut my finger, so to push away from it I used my foot ... because it just looked really bad... So I did hurt myself but it was fine. I went to the hospital, I'm fine.
And Kardashian insists she's already bearing the pain on her road to recovery, adding: "I have to wear heels all day long today and if you saw my room - it looks like a murder scene with all the blood everywhere."
Kardashian is set for stiff competition on the show which is scheduled to air on U.S. TV on 22 September (08).
Her co-stars will include: singers Toni Braxton and Lance Bass, chef Rocco DiSpirito, U.S. Olympians Misty May-Treanor and Maurice Greene, actors Cody Linley, Cloris Leachman, Ted MCGinley and Susan Lucci, American footballer Warren Sapp, TV host Brooke Burke and Hollywood producer Jeffrey Ross.
