Let’s get some behind-the-scenes details from “Passion Night” on Week 4 of Dancing with the Stars.
What happened to Niecy’s brother?
Niecy and Louis dedicated their spiritual Rumba to her brother Michael, who died 17 years ago. Niecy’s family has a long history of troubles, as she and her mother Margaret Ensley shared with The Insider. In 1993, Niecy's brother Michael was shot and killed at 17 years old on his high school campus by a fellow student. "He had his books on his back headed for his 2nd period class and a young man made his way on the campus with a loaded .22 and shot him," Margaret said. "I couldn't scream, I couldn't do anything. Tears just fell but I was disconnected from it all. And I've never recovered from that."
Jake regrets his wardrobe malfunction
Jake tripped during his Tango when the heel of his shoe slid on the hardwood floor, causing him to almost fall. “[In rehearsals] Chelsie said maybe I should put something on my heel to keep it from slipping, but I thought it would be fine,” Jake told People.com. “That’s going to cost us some votes.”
Stars get bad breath, too
“Passion Night” meant lots of close dancing and a lot of the couples popped breath mints to prepare. But Nicole joked that her partner Derek‘s “breath is kicking like Bruce Lee!” Nicole confessed that she heard that line in a movie. And as Derek insisted, the couple’s breath “is always fresh.” Sure, Derek. Sure.
T.O. takes center stage
Aiden & Edyta expect to go home
If you read their Tweets, Aiden & Edyta are taking their second-to-last (after Kate & Tony) scores as a sign that they may have to say goodbye. “Good morning! It's going to be difficult to survive today's elimination, but thank you so much for all your votes and support. Love you all!” Edyta Tweeted. “Dance went well I thought But judges robbed me If you could be so kind as to vote for me, i'll love ya forever 1 (800) 868-3409” Aiden wrote. We’ll see if it worked.
