Paula Abdul has broken her nose while trying to avoid standing on her pet Chihuahua.
Abdul told US TV show Extra she had torn cartilage, fractured her toe and bruised her arm, chest and waist. "All from my little chubby Tulip," she said.
The American Idol judge, 44, is recovering and will appear on American Idol's grand finale this Wednesday, said her publicist, David Brokaw.
"She's a little sore, but is doing fine," he added.
The dog was not hurt in the incident.
