Warren Sapp, "Dancing" diva

TMZ reports on their website (and their highly entertaining, snarky TV show) that former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Warren Sapp is acting out behind the scenes of ABC's "Dancing With The Stars." Sapp, who retired after the 2007 season, is a contestant on the current season of the show. TMZ says that Sapp is just a lovely fellow on the air, but not so much when the cameras aren't rolling, saying that Sapp "talks down to everybody (especially the guy dancers and production assistants), yells at people and consistently walks out of rehearsals with partner Kym Johnson." The TV show declared Sapp this season's "DWTS" diva.

This is the same Sapp who once blindsided Green Bay's Chad Clifton far away from where the action (an interception being returned) was occurring, putting Clifton in the hospital; who went skipping through the Pittsburgh Steelers during pregame warmups, instigating a shoving match between the Bucs and Steelers; who responded to a fine for bumping into a referee when running onto the field before a game by saying, "It's a slave system. Make no mistake about it. Slave master say you can't do it, don't do it. They'll make an example out of you." So it's no surprise to hear that he's disliked by the "DWTS" cast and crew. Some children just refuse to grow up.
