The Los Angeles studio were Dancing with the Stars is shot was evacuated Friday night after a mysterious letter containing a powdery substance was delivered.
“An envelope containing an unknown substance was delivered to the Dancing with the Stars production office on Friday evening,” an ABC rep said in a statement. “Security and the Los Angeles Fire Department and the Los Angeles Police Department were immediately notified. Measures were taken to secure the area and ensure the safety of personnel.”
Bristol Palin, Jennifer Grey and Kyle Massey are the three stars who will be competing in the DWTS finale Monday night, and Bristol has been surrounded by controversy from her first appearance.
Many fans believe she only made it to the finals because of highly organized voting on the part of supporters of her mother, Sarah Palin. But whether Bristol or one of her competitors — Jennifer or Kyle — was the intended target of the scare letter, law enforcement isn’t saying.
Fortunately for all, the “unknown substance” turned out to be talcum powder but the threat is still being investigated and security for all the stars has been beefed up.
