Comic Andy Dick is already struggling with "Dancing With The Stars" rehearsals.
Dick admits he was invited to compete on the show when it first aired, but insists he wasn't "ready" for the challenge, but now, 13 rehab stints later, he's "disciplined" and in a good place and likes his chances as Aussie pro Sharna Burgess' dance partner.
But he admits she is putting him through his paces in rehearsals, which began earlier this week.
He says, "I just kept thinking, 'How am I gonna get out of this?' It's getting difficult and I might have to just take a fall and go down... I don't know what the hell I am doing."
An injury for the now-sober 47-year-old might be a big problem -- because his past addiction issues will limit his use of painkillers.
Dick will be up against the likes of country singers Wynonna Judd and Kellie Pickler, boxer Victor Ortiz and reality TV star Lisa Vanderpump when season 16 of Dancing With the Stars debuts on March 18.
