What happened to Erika Girardi?

erika girardi didn't actually share how she got injured, but fans are curious about what went down. TMZ shared that Erika had a body tear in early April and did not tell anyone.

If you notice, she wasn't part of the group dance on the big "Dancing With the Stars" finale. She got sent home from the show on the April 17 episode. This may have happened before she went home and Erika danced with the injury, but this is unknown at this time. Erika did love her time on the show. She said, "I love it. It's great. It's a challenge. Every week you learn something new. ... I knew it was going to be a challenge ... I take a couple of Aleve and I'm pretty good."

This could end up causing Erika problems with her career as well. She is a singer, but she is also a dancer and does a lot of moving around when she performs on the stage. Hopefully, Erika will heal pretty fast and be able to get back to doing what she loves.

She has great support at home with her husband and her son, who is a police officer and also lives with them. Fans hope that Erika gives them a few updates on how she is doing now.
