Jaleel White Flips Out at Kym Johnson, Channels Steve Urkel, Cries on Dancing With the Stars

by at . Comments

It was quite a week for Dancing With the Stars' Jaleel White.

The actor got into a conversation so heated with his pro partner, Kym Johnson, that fellow cast members had to break it up, then turned in an emotional rumba for a respectable 25 points, then cried in a post-dance interview with Brooke Burke.

Mark Ballas and producers had to intervene after White "flipped out" on Kym during rehearsal, according to insiders, though it's unclear what prompted the altercation.

All we know is they rebounded nicely:

Jaleel and Kym's score wasn't among the leaders, but they should be safe this week after the routine, in which the Family Matters star channeled his inner Steve Urkel.

Or Stephon Urquelle, Urkel's smooth-talking, non-geek alter ego, as it were. Watch him tear up when asked about bringing back the famous character backstage:
