The best reaction was George Hamilton, who kept using Master P's lines for himself with comments about doing it for the people in the hood and campaigning in nursing homes, etc.I didn't feel sorry for her at all. She pouted and threw him under the bus before there was a list of people wanting be on the show and while the show was grasping for demographics. He came in as a last minute sub for his son, who was reported injured and danced very well on a later season, and he could/would only practice very few hours a week. Instead of saying, "Hey, he was great to sub in at the last minute, but didn't and still doesn't have the time to put in, and this is what you can do in six hours a week [or whatever ridiculously low number it was that the producers should never have allowed unless they gave him a seasoned pro]" her attitude was "poor me."
If Karina had done that, Louis van Amstel would have slapped her across the head and told her to be professional.
Ashly was in a tough spot that she should have never been in on the show. She had no way to make him rehearse more and he got more publicity for doing poorly and acting like a jerk than he would have for having done his best.
