Another Rough Week (for Feet) in Hollywood

Kevin Connolly fell victim to the Hollywood broken foot outbreakEvery so often I like to check in on what’s going on with celebrities, and when I did so last week, I noticed that quite a few of them were talking about their foot problems.

WWE fans will be sad to hear that Bret (the Hitman) Hart just realized that he had a broken foot after months of being unable to walk well due to what he thought was a knee problem. Now that he knows what’s really wrong, he’ll have surgery to repair the problem.

That same week, Entourage star Kevin Connolly tripped on a sprinkler while trying to catch a pass from Seattle Seahawks player Russell Wilson. Apparently, Wilson then fell on Connolly’s leg and the ankle broke. Connolly shared a twitter picture of himself with his ankle iced, wrapped and elevated to spread the sad news of his injury.

Kit Harrington, of Game of Thrones fame, gave an interview to Bustle magazine where he revealed that he, too, would have gotten naked on the show except for one pesky thing: he had a broken ankle. Otherwise, it would only be fair for him to strip since his female co-stars do it so frequently, he concluded.

Finally, Hot in Cleveland star Valerie Bertinelli, who in recent years has become a Jenny Craig spokesperson, was quoted last week about how she’s noticed the pounds creeping back on recently. The reason? She broke her ankle a few months ago and has still had to alter her workout routine.

All these people, united by fame and the misfortune of broken feet and ankles, prove one thing. If you don’t want a fracture to get in the way of your daily activities, it needs to be treated properly. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Andrew Schneider if you suspect that you have sprained or broken your toe, foot or ankle. You wouldn’t want to have to miss an on-air stripping opportunity, after all.
