Pro dancer Derek Hough will be dancing with an ex-con this season on Dancing With The Stars and his partner Lil’ Kim said that she and her prison mates were huge fans of the show. Derek Hough admitted that he was a little nervous when he had to meet the celebrity and rightfully so…she has girls!
“When I was in prison, me and my girls used to watch [Dancing With The Stars],” Lil’ Kim told the Insider. “My girls were like, ‘Kim, you need to be on that show.’ In prison you have to all agree what shows you watch. If we can’t agree, it doesn’t get watched. Everyone watched it faithfully. It’s like the No. 1 show in prison!”
The Grammy award winning rapper Lil’ Kim found herself in jail in 2005 after being charged with perjury in the case of the wherabouts of her manager during a shooting outside a New York radio station in 2001. She spent one year in the Philadelphia Detention Center.
Although Lil’ Kim was hoping to get Derek Hough as a partner, he admitted that he wasn’t as excited as she was at first. “I was nervous [to meet Kim],” Dereksaid. After the initial nervousness though Derek said, “but she’s so soft-spoken and nice. We gelled immediately.”
