Suspicious White Powder Sent to DWTS
The current season of “Dancing With the Stars” is turning out to be full of action and drama both in and out of the dance floor. FBI agents were called to the DWTS offices in Los Angeles on Friday after a suspicious white powder was found inside a fan mail addressed to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol Palin, whose entry into the finals of the competition despite low scores has raised not a few protests.
ABC, which carries DWTS, immediately ordered employees out of a section of the offices and studio. However, the white substance turned out to be talcum powder. ABC said the Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed that the white powder was harmless. “Measures were taken to secure the area and ensure the safety of personnel. Ultimately, we were advised by the LAFD that the substance was determined to be talcum powder,” the network said in a statement.
Bristol has been criticized after she survived the most recent elimination despite garnering the lowest scores from the judges. Consistent high scorer Brandy was eliminated this week.
The DWTS finals will be held on Monday with Palin for the Mirror Ball Trophy competing against fellow celebrity finalists Jennifer Grey and Kyle Massey.
