Reports claim that Charo might be leaving Dancing With The Stars after she was scored “very unfairly” and she also doesn’t think she’s been treated very well.
“Charo was super upset this week about her scoring and she feels like she’s being treated and scored very unfairly,” a source tells E! News. “She is seriously upset.”
The passionate flamenco guitarist has earned a 21 and a 25 out of 40 from the judges, in the two weeks of competition, and she almost got eliminated at the end of week two when she was the last dancer to be revealed as safe. Chris Kattan ended up getting the oust. Charo immediately started complaining to producers after the episode ended.
“She was telling producers that she doesn’t like how they’re underscoring her and she feels like she’s been treated so badly so she was threatening to quit,” the insider continued. The producers were ultimately able to walk her back off the ledge, but we hear the threat still stands “unless they started scoring her performances more fairly.”
After her near elimination, Charo expressed her frustration about the event and not just for herself. “I was very upset that they kicked out Chris,” she told E! News. “I was about to make a deal. I go, and he stays. But I don’t think the rules allow that. He tried very hard and it’s so beautiful. Also, I was very upset that they gave [better scores] to Mr. T.”
“Charo loves ABC and DWTS and she appreciates the opportunity afforded to her to be a part of the show,” a rep for Charo said.
ABC has yet to comment on the issue.
