'Dancing With the Stars': Carrie Ann Inaba tweets in defense of the judgesAdd to Favorites | Dancing With the Stars
Well, Inaba has taken to Twitter to defend the judges. (She's the only judge with a Twitter account.)
"FYI: Everyone has different abilities on DWTS," she tweeted. "Every journey is unique to each contestant and everyone's ten looks slightly different. Another FYI: I forgive you because you don't know better- scores are locked in before we speak. So we have scored before any words spoken."
Goodman made an appearance on "Access Hollywood" to give his own opinion. "I was a little bit aggrieved at the time, but now I've slept on it, and I'm sure Maks has slept on it," he said. "What he's saying is so untrue. I am the defender of all the pros, I think all those professionals do a fantastic job."
Zap2it was actually backstage that night, and we asked recently booted couple Lacey Schwimmer and her partner Chaz Bono (who felt that judge Bruno Tonioli's statements about Chaz looking like a penguin were bullying) about whether or not the dancers have the opportunity to speak to the judges after blowups like this. She said it wasn't allowed.
Who's side are you on? Are the judges getting mean or are they just doing their job? Weigh in below.
