Ricki Lake is the first contestant to suffer an injury on the thirteenth season of Dancing With the Stars.

On Thursday, the 42-year-old actress and TV host tweeted a photo of a giant bruise on her shin following dance rehearsal with pro partner Derek Hough. "I injured myself yesterday by hitting my heel into my shin," she explained to TMZ. "I'm fine."

Just to be on the safe side, an ambulance was called to assess the situation. "Not sure how my bruise turned into a medic showing up?" Lake tweeted after the accident. "I'm fine!

Later that afternoon, Lake tweeted a picture of herself beside a poster featuring former contestant Kirstie Alley. "I've got my work cut out for me," she wrote. "Channeling ya' mama."
