On Monday's "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars," the remaining celebs and their pro partners were tasked with re-envisioning a stand-out routine from a prior season. (This edition of "DWTS" is all about the memories, apparently.)
The theme worked best for Melissa Rycroft and Kelly Monaco, who both scored the highest marks. Rycroft's redo of J.R. Martinez's samba with partner Tony Dovolani nabbed a 27 from the judges, as did Kelly Monaco's paso doble with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, as inspired by Laila Ali.
And even though Bristol Palin was frustrated with partner Mark Ballas during rehearsals, she still earned praise from the judges. That performance nonetheless scored just a 22.5, though.
But Palin's surely had better weeks. As she explains in the video above, she and Ballas had their first fight, which was apparently sparked by Palin feeling a little neglected, and then there's that whole "suspicious package" ordeal.
Keeping in line with "DWTS" deja-vu theme this year, a mysterious package arrived last week for Palin at CBS Studios. (E! News reports that in 2010, an envelope filled with what turned out to be a harmless substance was sent to CBS with the aim of getting under Palin's skin.)
ABC isn't commenting on this year's package, but Palin and her partner Ballas have.
"It's a dance show, relax," Ballas said, adding that he hoped whomever sent the package "didn't pay for first class stamps. That's a waste of money."
Palin agreed, saying, "I know. That was a waste of money!" Her advice on the situation? "Just chill."
