Nastia Liukin definitely catches our eyes coming out of the dance studio in a bright pink jumpsuit in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (May 6).
“This little thang right here KILLED it tonight in both dances !!! We had a blast this entire week, probably my favorite week bonding with Nastia. Production chose to go with a moment that lasted 2 seconds at the end of an 8 hour rehearsal, rather than a full week of joy, love and non stop laughter for our package. For some reason they weren’t interested in showing that stuff,” Derek honestly wrote on Instagram after the show aired a bit in their video package that put Nastia in a less than positive light.
He added, “Nastia has been incredibly gracious , humble , hardworking , kind , loving , thoughtful , resilient , adaptive , funny and over all a beautiful human being. I’m all for positivity, love and good energy and so is Nastia. I really hope you guys could see the reality of this couple. Love you all . And have a great night x @nastialiukin #dwts.”
Nastia added, “Thank you @derekhough for not only being a brilliant teacher/choreographer but such a great mentor and friend. Through the ups and the downs (all of 5 minutes) this week was by far my most favorite week on the show. Now it’s on to the semi-finals!!! And tearing down some walls :) #DWTS.”
