dwtsLooks like the ladies aren't the only catty quicksteppers on Dancing With the Stars. Sources told Us Weekly that Drew Lachey is furious that he got the boot before Bristol Palin.

The ex-boy bander -- who won the mirror-ball trophy in season 2 -- was heard freaking out backstage October 9 about how the single mom managed to stay in the competition longer than he did.

He "threw a fit" the insider said. "He was complaining that Bristol has no talent and no reason to be there ... Am I on the right show? I thought this was Dancing With the Stars." He also reportedly called Bristol "a joke."

Ouch! But I can't really blame him for being so bitter. You don't have to be Carrie Ann Inaba to see who has the real talent there. But is it really worth all that vitriol, Drew? Geez! I think he is taking this waayyyyy too seriously. It’s not like an Oscar. Besides, he should know people would rather watch her trainwreck routines anyway.

When Bristol was eliminated a week later, she was far more gracious about the whole thing. "I think I was optimistic about every week. I'd never been in the actual bottom two, so it was hard to process it all, but it is what it is," she said after her October 17 cut. "Good luck to everyone else." Say what you want about Bristol, she certainly isn't a sore loser like her co-star.

Do you think it's unfair Bristol outlasted Drew on DWTS?
