"These dances were emotional for everyone," Shepherd said of the performances, which they had less time to learn. "Everybody wants to do well. We all want to be here."

Jaleel White Says Drama with Kym Johnson Is 'Completely Exaggerated'

Originally posted 04/03/2012 09:20AM

Jaleel White knew Dancing with the Stars would put him back in the spotlight. But he didn't know that he and pro partner Kym Johnson would be the focus of behind-the-scenes drama.

"It was completely exaggerated," White, 35, said backstage following Monday night's performances, after reports surfaced that he had erupted into a tirade against his partner on Friday.

The former Family Matters star reportedly stepped on Johnson's foot during a rehearsal, and then yelled at her when he thought she overreacted to the pain it caused.

"Jaleel definitely was out of line," a source tells PEOPLE. "It basically didn't have anything to do with Kym or her foot – he was just stressed out and ready to snap."

Tempers flared on Monday's episode of The View as Sherri Shepherd chastised Barbara Walters for using the N-word in a newsy context.

Whoopi Goldberg used the word first on Monday's broadcast while quoting presidential candidate Herman Cain. Walters repeated it in context of their conversation, though she told her co-hosts, "It's very hard for me to say. ? The fact that I just said it now gives me chills."
