Uh, oh, Dancing With The Stars contestant and music maker Lil’ Kim had a wardrobe malfunction last night during the performances! Now, Lil’ Kim has never been afraid to basically be naked in public, but since DWTS is a family show…the accidental slip was a bit over the top.
Her top seemed to have a mind of it’s own at the end of a jive with partner Derek Hough last night. Host Tom Bergeron provided cover while the rapper adjusted as she and Hough approached the judges table.
Lil’ Kim told KABC-TV after the show: “I don’t know why this happens a lot of the time, but … the girls were tryin’ to come out.”
The nearly X-rated moment was edited out by the time the show was rebroadcast on the West Coast, where no one would have really cared. The oops moment didn’t seem to bother the judges: Lil’ Kim and Hough had the night’s best score: 28 out of a possible 30 for their spirited dance. Hopefully “the girls” will be a little less spirited next week!
Dancing With The Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba says that all of the injuries this year may be due to the pro-dancer’s increasing competitiveness with each other. Nancy O’Dell tore her meniscus and Steve-O pulled a hamstring during this season’s competition.
Carrie Ann tells EW:
“The professional dancers are getting more and more competitive amongst themselves, and they are pushing their celebrities very hard. The professionals’ reputations are at stake, and they want to win the title just as bad if not worse than the celebs because that is what they do for a living. I also think that the celebrities are pushing themselves harder.
“The first season, no one really knew what to expect or what it would take or how hard we would judge them. They know that if they do well on the show their careers can take off. It can really help on a business level. Look at Mario Lopez — and he didn’t even win. It is a great stage for America to get to know them for who they are now, and it can be rejuvenating. Plus, they get bragging rights if they win. And a lot of them use it to get in shape. Anyway, I think they start to put in more energy, practice longer, and take bigger risks in the routines, so someone is bound to get hurt. Or a few people as the case has been. But I think they see it as worth it. Big rewards.”
Big rewards for the pros, at least! But did it REALLY boost Adam Carolla’s career?
