It seems Urkel has a bit of a temper. According to reports, Jaleel White blew up at his dance partner, Kym Johnson, during Friday’s rehearsal, and things got so heated that other Dancing with the Stars contestants and producers needed to step in.
Jaleel became agitated after he stepped on Kym’s foot and she cried out “ouch”. He got in her face and told her to “stop acting like a baby” and at one point called her an “idiot”. Kym stepped outside while Donald Driver tried to calm Jaleel down. Jaleel claims that producers paired him with “a stupid partner”. When Mark Ballas approached Jaleel, he reportedly spat at him “You remind me of that annoying sitcom neighbor who gets into everyone’s business!”
The source says that producers had to break things up and attempt to cool everyone down. Rumor has it that Jaleel has been refusing to step foot back in the rehearsal studio, and that he’s demanding his own space somewhere else.
Jaleel fired back this morning, saying that the reports have been “greatly exaggerated”. “We go to work every day, and there is an alley full of tabloid reporters. It’s not fair to us and that’s life, and I hope people can see through it. There’s no drama in my life.”
Also denying the extent of the blowup is Mark Ballas, who tells TMZ that it’s all crap. “We’re in L.A. man … everything’s fabricated.”

In other DWTS headlines, Kate Gosselin spoke out after hearing that Tony Dovolani said recently that he needed therapy after being paired with her two years ago. Kate blogged about it, saying “First, I think it is a shame that Tony has been left only with a negative impression of our time together, especially after we spent SO many hours, days, nights and weeks working hard together doing our best in the competition. Let’s face it–he didn’t have a lot to work with as far as my dancing abilities were concerned. I’ve admitted and laughed about this many times over the last two years!”
And lastly, Mob Wives star Renee Graziano is dying to be a contestant on the show! Renee is reportedly campaigning hard for a spot on next season’s show. “I love to dance. I’ve been dancing for a really long time. I’m good at it and I’d love to do it.”
Renee already has her partner picked out: Maksim Chmerkovskiy. “He’s tall and good looking. Actually we were just at an event together in LA, the Night of a Billion Reality Stars. I didn’t get to meet him but I plan on meeting him when I do DWTS. If you put it out there you never know!”
Someone needs to make this happen. STAT.
