Urkel Gets Into Altercation With Dancing With Stars Partner, Donald Driver Tries to Break it Up
I don’t watch Dancing with the Stars, but what I do know is that child actors who are known for playing iconic characters normally are jacked up adults.
There isn’t a more typecast character than Jaleel White’s Urkel, so I am not shocked by this.
The “Family Matters” alum, 35, “flipped out,” the insider says, after he accidentally stepped on Johnson’s foot. When Johnson, 35, exclaimed “ouch” over his blunder, the insider says, White “got in her face,” and chastised her for “acting like a baby … He was shouting at her, calling her an ‘idiot.’ ”
As Johnson momentarily left the studio in tears, fellow celeb competitor Donald Driver overheard the commotion and “tried to calm him down,” the insider says. Unmoved, White “started going off on the producers and shouting about how they put him with a ‘stupid’ partner.”
Pro dancer Mark Ballas then tried to confront White himself. As their argument escalated, White spewed: “‘You remind me of that annoying sitcom neighbor who gets into everyone’s business!’”
“The producers stepped in and broke it up before it got physical, but they were really going at it — right up in each other’s faces!” the source explains.
Now was this Urkel or Stefan trying to fight?
Let me know when you figure it out.
