Well, I certainly didn't see this gossip coming! As always on Dancing with the Stars, the producers feel the need to incoporate a Bachelor franchise crossover to make Monday's viewing transition a little more seamless. Of course, this go-round, Sean Lowe is taking a break from planning his wedding to cha-cha for the mirror ball trophy. While the virginal good guy may have won over fans while looking for love, sources are saying he's not making any friends among the other DWTS contestants.
On the flip side, Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman is proving to be a break-out star in the competition…and not just because of her killer dancing skills. People are falling in love with her bubbly personality. At sixteen, she's the youngest contestant in the show's history, but she's proving that she can dance with the best of them!

According to TMZ, Sean has been labeled quite the diva on set. Insiders reveal that Sean is bragging about how much the show needs him, and he talks down to the cast and crew. The sources also allege that Sean demands to be shot from certain camera angles. Okay, I almost believed it up till that last claim! He's no Jake Pavelka!
However, the executive producer of DWTS disputes these rumors, telling the site, "Sean is a pleasure and there is nothing diva-like about him."
Moving along to cuter and perkier contestants (let's hope she doesn't follow down the paths of Disney princess before her!), Zendaya is clearly the one to beat, ending up at the top of last week's leader board. While she's no stranger to dancing, her partner Val Chmerkovskiy thinks her charm will be her biggest asset.
Val tells Access Hollywood, “I think her biggest strength is her personality. Everybody that spoke to me about Monday’s performance was just blown away by her interpretation of the dance, interpretation of the music. A lot of people come on there and they’re thinking, and you can see that stress on their face. Just her energy and how she stands out on the dance floor is the best.”
Of her position in the top spot, Zendaya shares, “I went in there just going my hardest and doing my best, and I feel like the fact that it actually happened that way is only icing on the cake. Now, it’s about just living up to that and working harder because now I have actual ballroom to do. It’s not like contemporary.”
Tonight, the pair will be dancing the jive.
