Carrie Ann Inaba: My Fellow DWTS Judges Are 'Crazy' and 'Stodgy'

It's hard to ignore Bruno Tonioli's outrageous one-liners, his sometimes overly harsh comments and his animated gestures on Dancing with the Stars.

Especially if you're sharing the judges' table with him.

Asked to describe her colleagues in one word, Carrie Ann Inaba doesn't hesitate to classify Tonioli as "crazy."

"I think we all agree on that one," she says, laughing. "Love him, but he's crazy."

As for Len Goodman, who's known for finding a dancer's every flaw and not being too generous with the scores, Inaba says the Brit is "stodgy."

"He'd be proud of me for saying that!" she says.
