'Dancing With The Stars': Who's a diva behind the scenes?


Zendaya Coleman says partner Val Chmerkovskiy's "high standards" qualify him for diva status.

"My divaness [sic] comes from making sure everybody around me lives up to the same standards that I'm executing," Chmerkovskiy said.

"You are a diva - in a good way," Coleman told him.

Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas say neither one of them is a diva, except when it comes to one of Ballas' pet peeves.

"Say we get a song that she hates," Ballas said, "she'll be quite happy to just deal with it. I won't. I want to change the song."

Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough managed to avoid the diva question.

Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson say their team is devoid of any divas. But what about Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd?

"Her, without question," Lowe said. "She had someone carry her purse the other day."

"Oh, I had them carry my purse? They offered because it was so heavy and my shoulder was like this so it was a nice gesture and I let him do it. That's what gentlemen do, Sean," she replied.

That brings us to the football star and his outspoken partner. Karina Smirnoff says Jacoby Jones is the diva of their team. She says he's full of complaints.

"When you take these heels and step on my foot, yeah, I'm going to holler," Jones said.
