There have been several foot injuries that have occurred on Dancing With the Stars. The latest is with Wendy Williams. She had tweeted how painful her bunions have been. She even had a picture of them which I will include in here. Bunions can be very difficult to have when dancing and having to wear the special dance shoes if they are very narrow in the front part of the shoe. It can create a bursitis along the 'bump' on the inside of the foot. The bump may get red, hot, and swollen, and be very painful. One can also develop blisters to this area.

When experiencing bunion pain it is best to see a Podiatrist for evaluation. Early conservative intervention includes, pads, orthotics, cortisone injections, and wider toe box shoes to alleviate the pain. If this does not help, then surgery is an option.
