Jaleel White, what were you expecting?
When asked in a radio interview this morning about an allegedly loud and heated fight he reportedly had with his Dancing With the Stars partner, Kym Johnson, White first said that he couldn't believe how much attention the tabloids are paying to him.
"Let me tell you something about this whole show," he said on 104.3 MYfm's Valentine in the Morning. "I had no concept what a tabloid...feeding frenzy this show is."
We have no idea why the former Family Matters star didn't know what he was getting himself into, but...OK.
"We get to rehearsal and theres like 20 idiots in the back...with cameras and videos," White said. "It sucks because this is our real lives."
Anyway, as for the Us Weekly report that he started shouting at Johnson during rehearsal and that producers had to come and break up the fight before it escalated, White says it wasn't like that at all.
"We definitely had a disagreement last week," he explained. "But our disagreement was over some of the choreography because she didn't understand who Stefan Urquell was."
Stefan, of course, being the nerdy Steve Urkel's suave alter ego. The contestants had to dance routines Monday inspired by the most memorable year of their lives—and White picked the year that Steve first turned into Stefan on Family Matters.
"It sucks," White continued. "I gotta, you know, have a Perez Hilton comment on me every week now, but it's par for the course."
