Exclusive: DWTS Rehearsal With Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas
"I requested Mark," said Kristin.
"Because she wanted me," Mark said in to which Kristin replied, "I did."
"A friend of hers' boyfriend is one of my best friends," Mark told us. "So I heard she was doing it and we kind of worked it out."
We also tried to figure out whether or not there is a romantic relationship between these partners. It doesn't look like it, not because of a lack of chemistry between the duo, because of the exhausting nature of their rehearsals.
"It's not a very romantic activity, said Mark. "It's very grueling, it's very stressful on the body."
"And it's just a lot to remember," Kristin interjected. "There's so many little details, we're thinking so much, I'm not sitting here like dreaming about Mark."
Ouch! Looks like Kristin is rekindling things with ex-fiance Jay Cutler, who was in the audience last night. Questionable flirting aside, there's still a fair bit of back-and-forth teasing going on between these two, Kristin giving Mark a hard time about his occasional British accent (he lived in London as a kid) and Mark calling Kristin a "smart-ass."
