"Dancing" Star Throws Hissy Fits

9/25/2008 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If voting were up to the cast and crew of "DWTS" -- we're told Warren Sapp would be the first one to go.

Our spies at "DWTS" tell TMZ Sapp's big head and man-diva attitude are causing problems.

We're told he talks down to everybody (especially the guy dancers and production assistants), yells at people and consistently walks out of rehearsals with partner Kym Johnson.

Move ovah, Shannon Elizabeth!


Stone Still Has Custody of Kiddie


Sharon StoneSharon Stone never lost custody of her child, so says her lawyer.

Stone had joint custody, but two weeks ago. the court clerk wrote in the file, ex-hubby Phil Bronstein "shall have permanent sole physical custody" as of Sept. 12. It's right there, in black and white.

But wait, there's more. The clerk also wrote, "Custody, visitation, holiday and vacation schedule shall remain in place as outlined on 10/4/07 order." That's the order that gave Sharon joint custody of the kid.

Sharon's lawyer says the inconsistency is obvious. In other words, Stone still has joint custody and the clerk just screwed up.

Sorry but after last nights show I now believe people are not voting seriously. Is Cloris REALLY a dancer??? Ted was more of a dancer than she is and you could see that he tried. I could not believe last nights show how the best dancers were not reveled until the last minute. You have to vote for the ones that dance and that work hard to learn the dances. Each week I sit with a pen and pad and make notes of each dancer and based on how they dances and how they have improved each week is how I vote. Isn't this the purpose of this show???? I feel sorry for the professional dancers when they are set up with someone who has zero skills, and then the pressure is on them to make them look good. I think if Cloris continues to stay on the show I will stop watching and no longer vote since that would indicate people are not really looking for a good dancer at all. If that is the case just come up with some type of personality reality show so people can just vote for their favorite person regardless of what they can or can not do.

I've watched DWTS from first season to present. It seems that this year things are really off track!! Cloris Leachman should not be on there. It's a dancing show/contest, not a 1 lady comedy (is she comedy?) act! Susan Lucci is so tiny that with all the exercise that the dancers do during practices, she will blow away in the wind! On the other hand, each season, it takes a few weeks to have the ones that will not go far anyway, voted off.

I think that the directors,producers and writers need to have a round table discussion with all the pro's that do the dancing chorography to put their thoughts into who they would like to have on the show. Maybe that way, the pair-ups would not be so unbalanced.

Another thought, how about some new costumes? Seems like the same ones are recyled over and over again. Enough skin showing going on too!!!

Mr. Sapp has been acting like this for years. I have personally seen him pull the BIG DADDY DIVA act on an airplane while with, presumably, Mrs. Sapp. What a SAP!

How's this for going off subject?!
Three cheers for Jeffrey Ross who, despite a Herculean effort, had to know he would be amongst the first voted off. He was gracious and eloquent in defeat and handled his obvious disappointment like a gentleman. There's plenty of negative to go around, so let me be among the first to stand up and loudly applaud Mr. Ross' positive example.
Take care of the eye, JR, and thanks for being a good sport!

It's hard to believe that somebody didn't tell the apparently lame producers that Warren Sapp is a miserably disturbed man.
He rants and rave like a teed-off "hooker" who has gotten her hard earned money taken back by the John. Anger management for this guy is a permanent comma. Best wishes!

Dancing With The Stars is a big disappointment this season, as most people have written, and I am no longer sorry that I am going to school in the evenings and will not be able to see the entire show each week. Who picked this so-called "Stars" for this show? Whoever it is, I hope they have been demoted and they have to read ALL of our hate mail. LOL What a joke...I just happened to see Cloris Leachman jumping around acting like an idiot during the 11PM News and I couldn't believe her partner didn't get scolded by the judges for not taking control and doing for they are supposed to be doing. The judges have complained about a lot less than that when other couples have really done their best. I AM TURNING DWTS OFF THIS SEASON - WHAT A WASTE OF TIME! AMERICA'S GOT TALENT HAS NO COMPETITION NOW! It is too bad this had to happen to such a great show. It was so entertaining to watch this show in the past. I don't get how Kim Kardashian is considered a STAR? She is unreal saying she is SHY...LOL I am not up on all the new people in television or movies, but I have seen her and know of her because I know who Bruce Jenner is. That family is laughing all the way to the bank! Sex really does sell - because that is all she has sold to the American public - and now she is on a national television show...There are only TWO real STARS on the show right now Susan Lucci and Cloris Leachman - both have won Emmy's and are famous for their work in films/television, but who are all the other people on there? I cannot tell the dancers from the stars this season...Maybe Jay Leno will consider being on the show next season - bring some class and stardom back to the show. How about Tom Selleck, or Pierce Bronson, or Richard Gere as men that would bring class back to the show and the audience back. THE SHOW IS CLASS-LESS AND STUPID AND MAKES THOSE ON THE SHOW LOOK LIKE FOOLS! WHAT A SHAME!!

BTW..I almost forgot to mention the SKIN SHOWING COSTUMES - what is the deal with all the boobs and chests hanging out all the time. Do they think we WANT to see how naked the dancers can become or what? I would rather see the progression of the stars' ability to dance and not have my focus pulled away by worrying if a nipple is going to fall out of a costume. LOL I'm a woman and I don't even care for the guys dancing around with just a vest unbuttoned and showing their chest and abs...Maybe when they are OLD and wrinkled they will put these videos on and remember the days when they had those abs! It makes it nice for them to remember their youthful days, but for the public it is causing some viewers to change the station.

TO DP...Right on for Jeffrey Ross. I don't know who he is, but I did see him on the show and I felt he was a great addition to the show. He is really quick-witted and funny and such a gentleman! Too bad he got hurt and got voted off. There are several others on the show that should have been the first to go instead, ie...Cloris Leachman and Kim Kardashian...

The producers pick candidates for the show for entertainment purposes mostly. They like to have cross generational performers to appeal to a larger audience. NOT everyone in the viewing audience is 20-30 something. As far as having teenage singers on the show, that is sort of silly since the show is more about older adults. The Jonas Brothers are just horrible, and Jesse Mc Cartney is not a whole lot better. The executive at Disney who put together that boy band must be utterly tone deaf. Those boys CANNOT sing. I think Cloris Leachman has the "joke" vote by people who like to jerk the audience around. She was an amazing actress in her day, but it IS time for her to retire. We have had Wayne Newton,
Heather Mills, Marie Osmond, Jane Seymour and others in the older range, but they acted a whole lot classier than Ms. Leachman is doing. Time to go home now, dear, thanks for the laughs while it lasted.

Cloris Leachman is giving OLD PEOPLE a bad name in this contest...and that name is
"Senility."

After reading everyones comments about Warren, it has totally brightened up my day! I dated Warren a year ago and thought I was going to lose my mind. He completely flipped out in this resturant when people were being kind and saying hello. I started yellingat him for that and he was telling me Ishould be quiet and not disrespect him. Trust me he recieved a rude awakingbecause I let him know I would beat his ass! I suppose hemet his match! He is a crazy maniac! Talk about a psychopath! I have had numerous run-ins with him at many events, and I hear all kinds of stories from models of the manic things he does. The point to all this is that when I heard he was going to be on the show I immediately felt terrible for everyone. I just couldnt pathom the thought to why they would want him on the show. Good luck to everyone on the cast!
