“Dancing with the Stars” had its absurd moment on air. Leah Remini acted as temporary co-host. While talking to Tamar Braxton and partner Val Chmerkovskiy, Shasha Farber came from behind in a clown’s mask to scare her. She was frightened and stumbled on the floor.
Remini was scared and she fell over but was not hurt. The only words she uttered was “damn you!” The “Dancing with the Stars” audience got a laugh out of the whole situation.
Tom Bergeron admitted, “I know Leah pretty well,” adding, “the thing that I admire most about this [episode] is that when she was frightened, there were at least seven words that didn’t come out of her mouth. I’m so impressed with her.”
Remini said after the show, “You know, I’m not good with people scaring me.” She also added, “I didn’t curse! I didn’t curse!”
Shasha mentioned, “I feel a little bit bad because I didn’t realize I would scare her that bad. She literally fell on the ground and screamed so I think I did all right. I did apologize to her.” Sasha also mentioned, “She could have punched me. That would not have gone down so good.”
Though this happened on live TV, Sasha and Remini have no hard feelings for each other. “Dancing with the Stars” will continue with its last 7 contestants for the next week.
