Dancing With The Stars Season 29 Spoilers: Anne Heche Explains Why She Stormed Off The Set The Way She Did
Earlier this week, sources told Page Six that the actress refused to do any press and drove off the studio lot almost immediately after taping. “Anne was not happy — she was furious. She drove off the lot and refused to do any press,” the tipster said.
Thankfully, Anne clarified what had happened and confirmed that yes, she was angry, if not also a little bit heartbroken for getting the boot on Monday night. That’s because she says her dance was a personal one for her, as it was 20 years in the making.
She performed a powerful paso doble to Katy Perry’s Rise while wearing a rainbow-colored ensemble. She also opened up about the scrutiny that she faced for dating Ellen DeGeneres in the public eye, as there weren’t many same-sex couples in the celebrity world at the time.
Speaking to Page Six, Anne puts it this way, “The honest truth is that it took 20 years to process and share that story, so finally, telling it and being voted off on the same night was not the best feeling.

The support that I have received after sharing my story has been overwhelming, and I sincerely appreciate it. The truth is that it took me more than 20 years to process and share my story. As we stand here in this shit show of a year, it does feel good to recognize that we have come a long way since 1997. We still have a lot more work to do to extinguish discrimination and embrace total acceptance, but I think that it’s important to recognize how far we have come despite that. Love you all! Anne

Anne also added that while her relationship with Ellen did have its ups and downs, it was one that changed her life forever. “My story is a story that created change in the world, moved the needle for equal rights forward,” she said. “In 1997, I met Ellen DeGeneres at the Vanity Fair party and that was the night that changed my life forever.
