Charo: Heather Morris’ Casting on Dancing With the Stars “Pissed Me Off,” But I’m Going to “Move My Ass”

Dancing With the Stars season 24 is stacked—there’s Olympic gymnast Simone Billes, pop stars Erika Jayne and Normani Kordei, Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan and Glee star—and honest to goodness professional dancer—Heather Morris. But Charo‘s not worried.

“They are very good. Everybody has a big possibility of getting the trophy,” Charo told E! News’ Sibley Scoles alongside professional partner Keo Motsepe during a recent rehearsal visit. “And I said yesterday, that when, unfortunately, if we lost, no hard feelings. Everybody’s invited to a paella, sangria and cuchi-cuchi at my place.”

While there may be no hard feelings should she lose, there still is a feeling of unfairness before the competition kicks off. There have been rumblings about behind-the-scenes gripingregarding Morris’ casting. Prior to joining Glee, Morris appeared on So You Think You Can Dance and toured with Beyoncé as a backup dancer.

“That pissed me off,” Charo told us. “Because how can I prepare with a professional dancer? She’s a professional, beautiful, trained dancer.”

“I’m a performer, I love the audience and a fly with the music and you give me the guitar and I’m telling you I’m on another planet,” Charo said. “So how can the football player, the cowboy, Mr. T, myself compete with a [professional]? So I think this is not fair, but life is not fair. So, what I have to do is move my ass. That’s the only thing.”
