— TALLAHASSSEE, Florida — A “Dancing With the Stars” star turned her back away from her fans Monday, saying she wants to focus on other things during the filming of her season.
The reality star and reality competition show’s “Dance With the Pros” season finale aired Monday and was interrupted when her show’s producers told her that she wasn’t allowed to wear any lingerie, including a bra and panties, on set.
After a short discussion with producers, actress Ashley Eckert said she felt like a complete fool for not wearing a bra or panties on set.
“This was the best time to do it, and I didn’t wear them,” she said.
“But I feel like this is a bad decision because this was the only time I could be a complete mess and not be able to enjoy myself.”
Eckert, who won her third season of the show in May, was visibly frustrated and confused when the producers asked her to wear lingerie and asked if she had any issues with her fans.
“No,” she replied.
“We were not allowed to do that.”
A source told ESPN that the producers also asked her about her breasts.
She was told she was not allowed any lingeries, but she refused to leave the set until the producers had left.
“You can’t be a part of the production, and you can’t wear any of these things that are not allowed,” she told them.
“You can be there as an actor, and then you can leave.
You can’t take any of that away.”
While it is unclear whether she is in the final episode, she is clearly upset by the whole ordeal.
“I was not happy, and it was like a total nightmare,” she explained.
“It’s like, ‘Oh my God, I didn´t even want to go to work, because I had to leave, and that was the worst part.'”
It’s frustrating to me.
I really wanted to be a performer.
I don’t know how to express my emotions.
I just can’t, because the only thing that I can do is smile and take pictures with my friends and family.
“Fans have been sending Eckert tweets and Facebook posts since the episode aired, asking her why she left.
She said she had not heard from her many fans.
Eckhart said she did not leave the show because she wanted to pursue other opportunities.
She did, however, get some criticism for her decision to not wear a bra.
The episode also included a “Dish” appearance by Ashley Eckart and “Dynasty” star Aubrey Marcus.”
The people that came up to me and said they were really excited for me were just kind of, like, the other people that didn’t like it, like I don´t really understand why they were so excited for Ashley, because it was just kind inoffensive,” Eckert told “Outside the Lines.
“”I can understand why people don’t want to watch, and maybe I can understand that, but I don, and people just don’t understand why I did it.
I felt like it was the right decision for me, and for my family.
“She added: “It is not a show I am going to sit back and watch and watch it happen.
I want to do something.
I think the best thing for me is to continue to be myself.
I love dancing.
I have a lot of friends that do.
I would like to go back and do it again.
I feel that I would have been able to do more.
