LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Bristol Palin is “moving on” from the her spat with her “Dancing With The Stars: All Stars” partner Mark Ballas. Access Hollywood caught up with the pair after the duo made headlines on Monday for their emotional argument, which happened as they rehearsed for their Week 3 dance.
According to Bristol and Mark, they easily worked out their differences after letting off some steam.
“A lot was going on in my mind and I just needed to get out of the studio. I went and took my son to a batting cage and arcade and then I was over it,” Bristol told Access.
Mark said that tensions flared after he missed an early morning rehearsal, but was able to make up the missed time later in the evening.
“I played some ‘Mortal Kombat’” Mark said. “This is our second season, we’re a quarter of the way through and we’re just now having our first little tiff and half the stuff we’re saying we’re just… we both want do well… we kind of just got heated.”
Bristol explained why she thought Mark was “bummed” because he didn’t “have Sabrina [Bryan] or Shawn” as his partner, as seen on Monday’s “DWTS.”
“I just think there’s a lot of pressure… he’s got girls here that he’s trained and they’re top scorers, they’re awesome dancers and I’m glad that we’re over this fight,” she told Access. “We’re over the hump and just moving on.”
During Monday’s show, Bristol told Mark, “You’re not there. Like I swear to God, I feel like you wanna go home.”
Mark insisted that was not the case.
“I’ve been on this show 11 seasons now. And I don’t always get a Shawn or Sabrina,” Mark said, referring to the two women (who are back this season), who are very strong dancers. “I’ve had those [type of] girls twice. It has nothing to do with it. Absolutely noting.”
