After the show, Jaleel toldEntertainment Tonight there were "a lot of distractions this week." So what about that story of their fight? Jaleel and Kym both rolled their eyes and shook their heads. "I'm going to let my wife answer that," Jaleel told ET. So Kym answered, "You know what, everyone has stressful weeks." She said she and Jaleel spar sometimes, "But it wasn't anything, you know, like, obviously a tabloid story.”
"People have to realize this is a competition," Jaleel added. "I had no idea how much the tabloids just besiege this show. It's never been a part of my life at all and hopefully we can just move past this week and people see that our connection is real." Jaleel got a manicure with Kym this week and he wanted that to show how close they really are.
Jaleel and Kym also dispelled the fight rumors/continued the damage control to On the Red Carpet. "This show is so stressful,” Kym said. “Everyone has hard weeks but, you know, things get blown out of proportion as well in the news and stuff like that. The thing is, we're a great team.”
"The tabloids enjoy having fun with this show," Jaleel said. "I've never had that be a part of my life or my career so I'm just asking people to roll with it." Kym added, “Everyone has tough weeks, not so tough weeks, maybe it was more of a tough week but we're fine. We're great friends.”
So, fine. They are great friends. Let’s hope that’s the last of their drama!
