Dancing With The Stars pro TONY DOVOLANI has slammed judge Carrie Ann Inaba after her negative critique of his recent performance, insisting she "does not understand" ballroom dancing.
The 34-year-old presented the former Fly Girl with a ballroom dancing rule book after the two argued over a lifting move during the dancer's Viennese waltz with actress Jane Seymour earlier this month (15Oct).
He says, "She does not understand what ballroom dancing is. She's never done it herself. She really comes from the hip-hop world. While we have the utmost respect for her as a dancer, it's not as a ballroom dancer.
"Because she does not know anything about ballroom, I figured she should at least read the rule book. I highlighted the parts I wanted her to read."
