Drew Lachey "Threw a Fit" When He was Eliminated from 'DWTS' Before Bristol Palin
Drew Lachey was openly disappointed he was sent home from Dancing with the Stars: All Stars — especially because he left the show before Bristol Palin.
Us Weekly reports that the singer/dancer "threw a fit" backstage after he was eliminated. "He was complaining that Bristol has no talent and no reason to be there," a source said.
Drew, who won the second season of DWTS, vented, "Am I on the right show? I thought this was Dancing With the Stars." And then he called the 22-year-old single mom "a joke."
Bristol was sent home this week, but a show insider stuck up for her, saying, "She's not the best dancer, but she's not terrible. She gets a bad rap because of her family."
"I think I was optimistic about every week. I'd never been in the actual bottom two, so it was hard to process it all, but it is what it is," Bristol said after her Oct. 16 elimination. "Good luck to everyone else."
"It really sucks!" Lachey told Us when he was booted off one week earlier. "Do I think we're going home too early? Absolutely. I don't think there's anybody in this ballroom who would disagree with that, [and] I don't think I'm speaking out of turn by saying that."
