WILL + GRACE star Megan Mullally is nursing a leg injury, after a recent bout of "silly dancing" went awry.

The actress needed help getting on and off the stage at Sunday's (18SEP05) Emmy Awards, where she and Donald Trump performed their contest-winning rendition of the theme tune from classic TV series GREEN ACRES.

And Mullally, who sought medical treatment yesterday (19SEP05), admits she caused her own injury after she got a little too excited at home.

She says, "I rehearsed with Donald Trump the day before yesterday and then we went home and we had the TV on. There was a stupid commercial with silly music and I was sort of cavorting.

"I was doing silly dancing and I went up in the air, came down and couldn't walk. I think I tore a muscle in my calf, apparently, so we'll see.

"I called my doctor. She said, 'Go to the emergency room.' So I go and we waited around and I went in and they go, 'Oh yeah, you hurt your foot, you have to go to the doctor.'"
