We nearly fell off our couch when Len Goodman called Niecy Nash an “enthusiastic eater,” but it doesn’t seem to bother her.
Len, a judge on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” made the comment after Niecy and her partner Louis van Amstel turned out a hilarious Argentine tango on Monday’s show.
“The Argentine tango is the story of a lady of the night trying to get money from the man—you were trying to get food,” Len said. "It’s obvious that you’re an enthusiastic eater, so why wouldn’t you go for a cookie?"
While most of us would have climbed over the judge’s table after that smack talk, Niecy amazingly kept her composure.
“I was not offended,” the funnylady told “The Insider.” "I like to eat, and I think we’re talking about two different things: my love of food and my weight. When I wanted to lose weight, I lost 50 pounds."
Niecy’s not looking to drop any more weight, either. She told Louis at the beginning of the competition that she wasn’t trying to lose her jiggly parts during her time on the show. “I’m a curvy girl, and I like it,” she said.
Celebs on “DWTS” usually shed inches and pounds after all the hours of practice they go through to perfect their routines. However, the “Clean House” host admitted she hasn’t been checking the scale to see if her physical stats are in tact.
