Season eleven of Dancing With The Stars on ABC came to a close last night as Jennifer and Derek were awarded the coveted mirror ball trophy. What you didn’t see was all the extra security measures takes as it is being reported that Bristol and Mark actually received death threats prior to the show. Keep reading for all the details!
Dancing With The Stars on ABC apparently takes the celebrities and pros safety seriously as TMZ.com reported that Bristol and Mark actually received death threats and they go on to share “We’re told it’s the first time they’ve had this much firepower on set – Bristol and Mark Ballas have received several death threats….and if that wasn’t enough….we’re told Mama Palin herself is expected to show up.” And Sarah Palin did indeed show up to watch her daughter’s performance.
Bristol reportedly had her own bodyguard and TMZ reports “in addition to Bristol’s personal security, there will be 2 bomb-sniffing K-9 units and 12 undercover guards….some LAPD, some private security…all armed.” Wow, who would have thought they would have needed so much security, but I guess after threats and angry viewers, most saying that Bristol being in the finals was an injustice, I guess better safe than sorry – I just hope all the stars got the same treatment!
That wraps up season eleven of Dancing With The Stars on ABC! Stay tuned for details on the upcoming season.
