On Monday’s Dancing with the Stars (DWTS), contestant Vanessa Lachey caused a frenzy when her skirt fell off during her performance. The wardrobe malfunction spread on social media networks and it wasn’t long before outlets reported that the incident was planned.
Did Vanessa Lachey take off her skirt or was this a real wardrobe malfunction captured live on television? Vanessa and her husband Nick Lachey are both contestants on DWTS season 25. Unfortunately, Nick Lachey was eliminated during Monday night’s broadcast.
Video from the episode has spread across the Internet with many saying they believed the incident was planned. In the video, you can see as Vanessa began the routine with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
The pair danced a quick step for the theme which was movie based productions. Their routine was an homage to old musicals, but something quickly went awry. Vanessa was dancing and her moves were impressive when lo and behold her skirt quickly fell to the floor.
Without missing a beat, Vanessa continued dancing, her skirt was removed from the floor and she and Maksim continued their routine.

After their routine, Maks and Vanessa spoke to the judges to hear their comments and remarks. Vanessa was out of breath but addressed the issue.
“Oops. I swear that was not planned to lose my skirt right in front of the judges. It looks like bribery!”
The audience laughed as Vanessa continued to address the wardrobe malfunction.
“Hey, if it’s for extra points, I’ll take it.”
What might have been a better headline instead of Vanessa losing her skirt was the professional way she handled the malfunction.
Vanessa proved that she is a pro on the dance floor as she never faltered, missed a beat, or lost her footing after losing her skirt.
Instead, she and Maks continued with their performance and although they continued with their routine, they did tie for fourth place. Still, the professionalism Vanessa showed proves that she deserves to be on the show and who knows what will happen.
Maybe Vanessa and Maks will bring home the mirror ball trophy.
