Catherine Giudici sits proudly on the sidelines each week at Dancing with the Stars while her fiance Sean Lowe struts his stuff with pro dance partner Peta Murgatroyd, but the smitten gal lends her support at home, too.
"She’s been cooking me dinner, offering to give me massages," says Sean of his beloved. "I take her up on it sometimes but I don’t want to take advantage of the poor girl. But she’s been very sweet. She knows how hard I work with Peta so she goes out of her way to make sure I’m happy when I come home."
But don't think these kind gestures on Catherine's part mean the rumors Sean is a total diva are at all true. Backstage at DWTS on Monday evening, Sean and Peta laughed off the stories that The Bachelor star has behind-the-scenes behavioral issues.
"Absolutely…not," teased Peta. "He is so far from it, it’s absolutely absurd and it’s laughable. We heard about it and burst out laughing because he’s not like that at all."
In fact, Sean describes his relationship with his dancing partner as "perfect."
"She yells, but it’s in a joking way, and I don’t take her that seriously anyway when she does yell at me," he says. "I’m not scared of her. We get a lot accomplished, we have fun, she does get on my butt but I need it and she’s making me a better dancer."
In the weeks to come, Sean says his biggest challenge in competition will continue to be getting comfortable with the ballroom style of performance.
"This is so foreign to me and I’ve never done anything like this before," he admits. "You have to know the routines frontwards and backwards to go out there with confidence. This week was a step in the right direction but I think next week should be even better."
This Monday's episode will feature the 11 remaining couples dancing with a prom theme in mind, so grab your corsages and get ready to boogie!
