Jewel (singer) has two broken legs-fractured tibias just below her knees
Singer Jewel, 34, has fractured tibias in both legs. O'Dell, co-host of Access Hollywood, has two knee cartilage tears. Their injuries are the latest in a series to hit celeb and pro competitors in recent seasons.

"I originally thought it was tendinitis or ligament strains," Jewel said before a concert appearance Thursday night in Highland, Calif. which she would do sitting down. "It was painful enough for a doctor to put me on cortisone. When I went in for an MRI, it turned out to be something else. I had no idea something like this was possible."

Jewel's stress fractures are just below her knees, which had been swelling from a practice regimen of up to eight hours a day. They'll heal in six to nine weeks, says Jewel, who is using crutches to get around.

2. My first thought was..... What did Jewell do to Sarah Palin
to cause the Governor of her home state to knee cap her?

3. Re:DWTS
Yes,I heard about this a few days ago.

Too bad,because I was looking forward to seeing her on
DWTS.

Access Hollywood's Nancy O'Dell is also out of the race,
having to have sugery on both her knees.

Actually,I luv Nancy O'Dell,and was sad to see that she had
to drop out.

But,I am interested to see how Lil Kim and 80's icon
Belinda Carlisle will do.
