Dancing with the Stars' Niecy Nash doesn't mind that judge Len Goodman called her an "enthusiastic eater" on Monday's show.

"I was not offended," Nash said on The Insider Wednesday.

After Niecy and partner Louis van Amstel performed the tango using a cookie as a prop, Goodman joked, "the Argentine tango is the story of a lady of the night trying to get money from the man ... you were trying to get food."

He added: "It's obvious that you're an enthusiastic eater -- so why wouldn't you go for a cookie?"

Nash, who has often boasted of her "jiggly parts" on the show, told The Insider, "I like to eat, and I think we're talking about two different things: my love of food and my weight. When I wanted to lose weight, I lost 50 pounds."

The 40-year old mom of three has no idea whether she's dropped any more weight since rehearsing and performing on the grueling dance competition. "I wasn't weighing myself before I did Dancing with the Stars and I'm not weighing myself now," she said. "I'm a curvy girl and I like it."
