According to a source backstage, "Vanessa's dance last night was flawless, but her skirt ripping off was totally staged!"

"She is so thirsty to win now that she is willing to do anything to stay on air.

She isn't stupid. Before Vanessa was a celebrity in her own right, she was an entertainment new reporter, so she definitely knows how to make headlines."

"Vanessa is loving the attention she is getting right now," the insider added to

Nick Lachey

Sadly, Vanessa's hunky hubby Nick Lachey, 43, was eliminated last night, which also means the end of the road for partner Peta Murgatroyd, 31 – the wife of Vanessa's pro Chmerkovskiy, 37.

As fans know, Chmerkovskiy skipped the show on October 2 after an alleged blowout fight with Vanessa over her diva antics.

But since the two reconciled, they have been on fire.
