Dancing with the Stars Season 6 contestant Adam Carolla was recently a guest on Cheryl Burke’s podcast Sex, Lies, and Spray Tans. The comedian recalled the time he was caught calling judge Carrie Ann Inaba a “b*tch.”


Adam Carolla Remembers Calling Carrie Ann Inaba a ‘B*tch’

After receiving a score of 5 from Inaba after one of his dances with partner Julianne Hough, fans could apparently hear Carolla saying, “Oh, b*tch.” Burke outright asked Carolla if he called Inaba a “b*tch,” to which he replied, “I did and I forgot I did it.”

“[The producers] told me I did and I was like, ‘I didn’t say it,’ and they were like, ‘Yeah, you said it,’” Carolla recalled. “And I was like, ‘I did?’ … I called her a b*tch and I didn’t have a recollection of it, which is weird.”

Carolla, who finished in ninth place, later made it clear that he had “no beef” with Inaba or anyone else from the show, telling Burke of the nature of the competition, “I knew what the job was. They knew what the job was. I get it.”

Carolla Had an Awkward Moment with a Fellow Contestant

During his interview with Burke, Carolla also recalled an awkward moment between himself and fellow DWTS Season 6 contestant Marissa Jaret Winokur, who finished in fourth place with partner Tony Dovolani.

While attempting to calm the actress’s nerves about her performance, Carolla compared the show to childbirth. As he recalled, “I said, ‘You know, childbirth, having a child, is it fun? No. Would you miss it for the world? It’s [an] experience and that’s what this is. This is childbirth, [it’s] the most important experience you’re ever gonna have’.”


According to Carolla, Winokur responded, “I just had ovarian cancer and I can’t have kids.” Interestingly, later the same year that Winokur competed on DWTS, she and her husband Judah Miller welcomed a son named Zev via surrogate.
