When Dancing with the Stars 2012 resumes tonight with a third week of season 14 action, will actor Jaleel White and Kym Johnson still be on the roster? Probably, but according to a recent report in US Weekly, the former Family Matters star’s days on the hit reality show may be more numbered than he’d like.
If the report relayed by a supposed DWTS insider is to be believed, White lost his temper during a particularly challenging March 30 rehearsal session with Johnson. He allegedly called the popular Aussie pro a “baby” and an “idiot” after she yelped in response to White stepping on her foot.
The incident escalated when NFL star Donald Driver, who’s paired with pro dancer Peta Murgatroyd, and two-time champ Mark Ballas both tried to step in to calm White down. The report states that it took producers banishing White from the premises to bring the tussle to an end.
The big question is obviously whether or not the incident reported actually took place. There’s nary a tweet in Twitterverse alluding to the drama, though White and Johnson haven’t shared any of the lovey-dovey exchanges that many of their fellow couplesÂ—including actress Melissa Gilbert and Maksim ChmerkovskiyÂ—often exchange. That suggests that there’s a grain of truth in the report; why else would White fail to defend himself publicly?
To see if Jaleel White and Kym Johnson appear on tonight’s showÂ—and look comfortable togetherÂ—tune in to Dancing with the Stars 2012 week 3 action on ABC.
