Fox11 talked with Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess after Dancing With The Stars last night. Noah was still upset for how they were portrayed in their package. Read on for more…
He explained to reporters, “The argument was my fault, but that wasn’t portrayed in the package the way it was edited … and … I’m not used to that and [I’m] … not the type of person that someone I care about is going to look bad when it was my fault.
“So I couldn’t get it out of my head the entire dance,” he said. “She told me backstage, ‘It’s reality TV. That’s what it is,’ but I’m like, ‘I am not set up for reality TV.’
“I’m protective of my friends. I’ve always been that way.”
Burgess, a longtime DWTS pro, noted, “He went into battle for me and went in to protect me, ‘No, it wasn’t her fault, it was mine!’ I think that is so sweet.”
Meanwhile, Galloway said, “It was a lesson learned for me. It’s like, if we’re going to argue about something, let’s not do it in front of the camera.”
The brave military man told FOX411 that he and Burgess both expressed what was bothering them during the incident and then they had “great communication skills between us and we were fine. The argument didn’t even last that long. We worked it out. We’re really close.”
Burgess said that Galloway got so obviously steamed about her being painted in a bad light that host Tom Bergeron even mentioned it on the live show.
For her part, Burgess said, “The [TV rehearsal] package didn’t rile me up at all. I’m used to that. I’ve been here for many seasons now. I know that if you have a three-minute argument in a 40-hour week of rehearsals, they’re going to use that argument because we need to see diversity [of] what couples go through.
“But it didn’t play well for Noah, he felt like it was misused.”
I don’t blame him for being upset. To read the full story, see Fox11. Thanks to Elisabeth for the find.
Stay tuned, we’ll update this post with Sharna’s new blog when it’s released.
ETA: Sharna released her new blog at Closer Weekly. Below is a take where she talks more on the same. She also writes a little on their new dance. Be sure to see the link for more including photos.
We had an intense but fantastic week, and our first fight lasted all of five minutes. What counts is how we pushed past it and moved forward. I do think it’s important for our fans to see this isn’t easy for either of us. It can sometimes be overwhelming, and we had a very human moment of frustration. We got through it easily because we understood where each other was coming from and made the necessary adjustments. We are great friends, too, and we honestly laughed about it at the end of the day!
We are more energized than ever to produce an amazing jazz number for next week’s dance! I love our song so much and have some really big ideas for choreography! I can’t wait to start working on the dance — there’s so much to do.
