This really upset us! The Bold and the Beautiful’s Katherine Kelly Lang has been on hiatus from her role as Brooke as she competes each each week in the ballroom dance competition Dancing with the Stars Italy, or as they say in Italian: Ballando Con Le Strelle! In last night’s live television broadcast, Lang along with her professional dance partner Simone Di Pasquale, performed the salsa to Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”.
Lang was clearly suffering from an injury sustained prior to the broadcast as evident from her bandaged thigh on her leg. When the news of the injury was revealed earlier, Katherine also had received many positive vibes and support on Twitter including from her former B&B co-star Ronn Moss (Ex-Ridge) who had also gone through the DWTS Italy competition.
After Katherine and Simone completed their salsa, the judges critique was nothing short of offensive! They also gave her terrible marks. Even though they spoke to Katherine in Italian and she was trying to understand their criticism through an ear piece, and then as you will see, she speaks English back, and they interpret in Italian on the live broadcast, the judges seemed to intimate a bunch of things! Some shockers included: perhaps Katherine was out all night and didn’t rehearse … and she’s from Hollywood, so what is this dancing? And they were trying to compare her learning lines on B&B … to learning dance moves on Dancing with the Stars. It seemed that the judges put Katherine in a spot of having to defend herself! Later, when asked about how she felt about the judges, Lang said, “No comment” and received a standing ovation!
After the jump, watch Katherine’s performance and the judges harsh comments!
