A fun and colorful Latin night for Dancing with the Stars encroached upon scandal last night when Chelsie Hightower nearly suffered a revealing malfunction with her dress. Hightower and her partner Roshon Fegan made light of the situation backstage after the show.
"I was hoping nobody saw that," Hightower told ET. "That's not the only time it's happened. That's like the third time," she said, adding that the incident was in the worst part of the dance when she was popping her chest.
Roshon Fegan, who scored 26 points with Hightower on their salsa dance, shed some humor on the situation. "I feel like she just danced her outfit off," he joked. "It couldn't hang on...Next time, we'll be smart about and we'll incorporate a move to pull [her dress] back up."
After missing last week's results show, ET caught up with Melissa Gilbert to see how she was doing after recovering from a head injury that she suffered during a dance. "I feel good," she said. "I feel clear. I'm fine, physically."
While Gilbert is back to normal, her fellow cast mate William Levy is in the injury spotlight for an ankle affliction he suffered during rehearsal this week. Levy revealed that he took pain killers before the show to help him get through his dance, but the pain was coming back as he was being interviewed.
On the topic of injury, Levy's partner, Cheryl Burke, discussed the demanding nature of Dancing. "This show is so intense," she said. "I think people have no idea what they're getting in to when they sign up to do this show."
Check out all the backstage interviews above to hear why Gavin DeGraw doesn't complain about his aches and pains any more. The Dancing with the Stars results show is on tonight at 9 p.m. on ABC.
