When it came to the Dancing With The Stars finale on ABC we would have thought that Corky Ballas would have been routing for his son and partner Bristol Palin to win. According to a recent interview, it sounds like Florence Henderson’s pro partner knew Jennifer was going to win as he claims there was no comparison between the two. Keep reading to hear what Corky had to say!
Dancing With The Stars season eleven pro dancer Corky Ballas recently shared his thoughts on the finale, as well as Jennifer Grey and Bristol Palin. In a recent interview with Radaronline, Corky said “Everyone expected Jennifer to win. Nobody puts baby in the corner; come on! She danced in Dirty Dancing. It would have been a joke if she didn’t win.” and he went on to add that “Comparing Bristol Palin to Jennifer Grey was like a Volkswagen to Rolls Royce.”
Ouch, that stings but somehow I do not think Corky meant that in a bad way as he went on to say how he spoke with Sarah Palin after the show and congratulated her on Bristol accomplishments. Corky added “No one was mad that Bristol lost. At the end of the day, this is a TV show. People just had way too much invested in the show.” He also commended Bristol on handling all the controversy as he said “For that young woman to go out there like that and perform her butt off, that takes tenacity and thick skin. I tip my hat to Bristol.”
