VIDEO: Dancing With Tragedy – Jennifer Grey & Brandy Expose Emotional Scars

Jennifer Grey (60/60 points) and Brandy (57/60 points) held nothing back on or off the dance floor on Dancing With The Stars Monday, as both entertainers supplemented their stellar dance numbers by opening up about personal tragedies in clips that were uncomfortably candid.

Brandy spoke of how she was reduced to a recluse after she was behind the wheel in the December 2006 car accident in Los Angeles that killed Awatef Aboundihaj, a mother-of-two.

“I felt like the world was against me,” she said, adding it “was proven [the accident] was not my fault.”

The singer credited friends and confidantes, such as her brother (and Kim Kardashian sex tape co-star) Ray J, Destiny’s Child alum Kelly Rowland and Whitney Houston for supporting her in her time of need.

Grey, as well, rehashed her “very traumatic” car accident in Ireland – with then-boyfriend Matthew Broderick behind the wheel – that left her neck injured and two women in another car dead.

She said the August 1987 accident left her with a bitter taste despite the subsequent success of her smash hit film, Dirty Dancing.

“It was so surreal to go to my big premiere and all of a sudden I was like America’s sweetheart,” she said, “And all of this stuff you think you’ve been wanting your whole life, and it just doesn’t feel very good.”

On the dance floor, Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer were just a step behind Grey with 58/60 points on the night, while Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas notched 53/60.
