LAist was on hand for this week's hilarious taping of The Soup, which included the above clip of Dancing With the Stars contestant and Olympic gold medalist Misty May-Treanor and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

According to stories posted today by MSNBC and E! Online, May-Treanor injured her Achilles tendon the following day during a DWTS rehearsal and it is not yet clear how this will affect her status on the show. More info after the jump.
