Having been repeatedly criticized for her lack of elegance and well, all around lack of coordination, it seems Kendra has had it!
In an interview following Tuesday’s results show, Kendra took special offense to judge Carrie Ann Inaba’s comments about her lack of elegance. “We have our own definition,” said Kendra. “Elegance is what [my husband] Hank [Baskett] sees, not what Carrie Ann sees. That’s what I care about.”
Kendra then admits she felt “like giving up” following Carrie Ann’s comments. “Another woman telling me about elegance eats away at my ego,” she said. “I’m a huge Carrie Ann fan, and she’s [usually] so sweet, but that one comment – I felt belittled at that moment and embarrassed.” Wowzers. A new episode of DWTS airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c.
In other DWTS/American Idol news, the NY Post is reporting today that ousted AI contestant Pia Toscano, who is now more popular than ever thanks to her early departure on the show, forgot to break up with her boyfriend of 4 years Carlos Nunez before going on a first date with DWTS pro Mark Ballas.
A mutual friend of the couple tells the Post, “It seems inevitable to anyone with eyes. They hadn’t spoken as often as you’d think once she made the final 12. She kind of played a disappearing act.”
The friend reveals that problems in the relationship became more obvious when Carlos flew to Los Angeles to see Pia’s first ‘Idol’ performance but she could only find a “couple of hours” to be with him.
It gets even better as Carlos was reportedly with Pia’s family the day of her shocking elimination from Idol and even comforted her weeping family as they watched the telecast. The very next day, Pia and Mark were seen going on their first date.
Just two weeks ago, Carlos told the Post he was “confident” in his relationship with Pia. “We’ve been together for a long time. We have a strong foundation. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be,” said Carlos.
As for Pia, she had the following response on twitter to a fan who kept tweeting nasty comments to her about the NY Post story. “Please don’t post this garbage on my page.. And you my friend are the dumb one for believing it! Good day,” tweeted Pia.
