The curse of "Dancing with the Stars" continues. Hot on the heels of the awful Shawn Johnson stalker incident, and injuries to Steve-O, Steve Wozniak, Gilles Marini (as well as pre-show injuries to Nancy O'Dell and Jewel), now comes word from E! News and digitalspy.com that Playboy playmate Holly Madison has incurred a rib injury during rehearsals.

The site reports:

Speaking to E! News, a publicist for the former Girls Next Door star revealed that she had first hurt herself while training for last week's samba routine.

"After experiencing pain in her rib area, Holly received medical attention. While she is not suffering from a broken rib, she does continue to feel a great deal of discomfort and was prescribed pain medication," said a representative.

However, the Playboy model, who survived last week's dance-off, is adamant that she will have recovered in time for her next performance.

"She is committed to the show and her partner Dmitry and will rest when she can. She fully hopes and, at this time, expects to dance on Monday," added the spokesperson.

Madison is the latest in a string of celebrities to have sustained injuries preparing for this season's competition. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, "Jackass" star Steve-O and actor Gilles Marini have all suffered knocks in training."TV Dancing With The Stars.jpg
