Was Sarah Palin Booed at DWTS?

Boos were heard on Monday's Dancing With the Stars - and many suspected it was because former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was sitting in the audience.

"There's booing in the ballroom -- we don't know why," cohost Brooke Burke said at one point.

"Why is there booing?" contestant Jennifer Grey asked shortly before the camera panned to host Tom Bergeron, who was sitting next to a leather jacket-clad Sarah, 46, ready to interview her about daughter Bristol (whom she referred to as "Bristol the Pistol").

A show rep insists the audience was booing because of Grey's low score, a trio of 8s.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, host Bergeron also insisted the audience didn't boo Palin. "There's a misunderstanding ... They felt Jennifer got screwed, that she should have gotten 9's." Asked if he was positive, Bergeron said, "Mostly."

"It was definitely more comforting than anything!" Bristol, 19, later told UsMagazine.com of having her mother and younger sister, Piper, in the audience. "I was so excited that they were able to come. I'm very glad they could be here."

What did mom think of her quick step that earned her a 22 out of 30?

"She was just so proud of me," Bristol told Us. "She gave me a huge hug." And her little sister? "She said she loved my gloves!" Bristol told Us. "I think she wants to borrow them!"
