Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Tonya Harding nabbed a 23 out of 30 for her Fox Trot performance with partner Sasha Farber this week, but after the 47-year-old former pro ice skater broke down in tears following her performance, an on-set source told exclusively her fellow competitors think it was all for show!

“Tonya’s tears just did not sit well with the other contestants and they are already getting fed up with her theatricals,” the show insider said.

“Everyone is saying that she completely faked her crying episode on-screen during the premiere because she is not that emotional in real life.”

According to the source, it isn’t only Harding’s “theatricals” that are causing a stir amongst the cast!

“She is such a huge drama queen and it seems that she believes she is the star of the show already. The producers seem to agree, because they are using her imagery for most of the promotion of this current season,” the source told

“Everyone is already just so sick of her and the other contestants all agree that they all need to up their game and get her eliminated as soon as possible.”

As fans know, Harding entered this season’s competition on the heels of the release of a blockbuster film based on her life, I, Tonya.

Coincidentally, Harding’s nemesis, Nancy Kerrigan — who was infamously knocked out of the 1994 Olympics after being attacked by Harding’s ex boyfriend Jeff Gillooly in 1993— was also said to be a diva on the dancefloor when she competed, and lost, on the last season of DWTS.
