Reading Time: 2 minutes
When it comes to Dancing With The Stars, emotions run high and competition is fierce, one might think that working with an ex-partner could be a recipe for disaster. However, for professional dancers Emma Slater and Sasha Farber, it’s not a problem at all. They’re proving that it’s possible to support each other even after a romantic relationship has ended.
Emma Slater Has Nothing But Support For Ex-Husband Sasha Farber
The news of their separation was revealed in August 2022, following more than four years of marriage. While it may sound like a heart-wrenching situation, both Slater and Farber have managed to maintain a strong and supportive professional relationship.
Slater expressed her genuine support for Farber and his current partner, Alyson Hannigan, on the show, emphasizing that they’re like a dance dream team. Not only do they cheer each other on from the sidelines, but they also extend a helping hand when needed, with Slater mentioning that they assist each other with their dance routines.
“We support each other so much that I want the very best for Sasha.” Slater said. “I love him and Alyson [Hannigan] together on the show. We support each other, very, very truly.”
Despite their romantic separation, Slater and Farber remain a powerful force when it comes to their professional lives. They continue to choreograph dances together for DWTS, celebrating each other’s successes and lending their support.
They Separated Because of Differing Parenting Views
Their amicable approach to working together stands in stark contrast to the difficulties they faced in their personal relationship. Slater cited the major issue that led to their separation: the topic of children. She explained during an episode of the Viall Files podcast that they both wanted kids, but their timelines didn’t align.
Slater didn’t want to delay Farber’s path to parenthood, as she sensed his readiness for that next step in life. This difference in perspective created friction and ultimately contributed to their decision to part ways.
Their continued partnership on DWTS has showcased their ability to set aside personal differences for the greater good. Despite the end of their romantic relationship, Slater and Farber demonstrate that true professionals can work together harmoniously, even in the most challenging of circumstances.
