Carson Kressley Casts Queer Eye on 'DWTS' H8Rs
"Dancing with the Stars" contestant Carson Kressley and dancing partner Anna Trebunskaya chatted with "Extra" host Mario Lopez, responding to complaints about the show's controversial season.
"Anybody who was having issues with it, I was like, 'People, it's a show about ballroom dancing,'" said Kressley. "I mean, lighten up. And then they were like, 'Does the show have a gay agenda?' And I said, 'It was pretty gay before I got there, ya know?'"
Kressley joked he isn't in it necessarily to win, but to lose weight. "I'm trying to get down to my birth weight -- nine pounds seven ounces -- before the end of the show."
As for his costumes, Anna is trying to keep Carson in check. "I wanted to do shorts and she wouldn't let me. I would have shaved them, put some body bling on," said the "Queer Eye" star. Trebunskaya responded, "I thought maybe too early for shorts."
