Former ‘Dancing with the Stars’ contestant Andy Dick showed up to watch the Season 18 finale on May 20, but he didn’t stay long. The 48-year-old comedian got booted from the ballroom way before the other finalists after he displayed some pretty shocking behavior!
Andy Dick was a bit out of control at the DWTS finale, where he was seen “acting erratically, reeking of smoke and exhibiting eyebrow-raising behavior,” according to one report. And that’s not all — the former DWTS contestant also reportedly lunged at a production staffer’s breast! This was definitely not Andy’s best public appearance and no one found the comedian funny.

The comedian showed up to the event with a guest and reportedly stunk of smoke. He was seen “running in and out of the ballroom every five minutes” and yelling, “I have to pee,” one observer tells People magazine.
Eventually, four security guards stepped in and “told him he had to go,” and he reportedly responded, “Why? Because I’m drunk?”
After being removed from the premises, he wasn’t seen again for the remainder of the finale. Andy sure knows how to make an exit!
Andy Dick’s Longtime Battle With Substance Abuse Continues
Andy has had a longtime, very public battle with substance abuse. After participating in Dr. Drew Pinsky‘s former VH1 docu-series Sober House, Andy seemed like a changed man on DWTS .
He even showed his sensitive side by dedicating a Viennese waltz to his daughter. The two had previously had a rocky relationship due to her father’s unstable ways, but they reconnected once he got sober. He told the audience that 2013 was the best year of his life, because he ditched his bad habits.
It’s a shame Andy can’t seem to stay out of trouble. We hope he gets some help for his issues and keeps his relationship with his daughter.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Does Andy need help? Let us know.
