Slater Says The Couple Will Be ‘Friends For Life’
After the Monday, October 17, 2022 episode of “Dancing With the Stars” season 31 when Farber and his partner, Selma Blair, left the competition, Slater went live on Instagram and shared some behind-the-scenes information from the press line.
She also shared exactly how she felt about Blair and Farber having to leave the competition, calling them the “true champions of the night.”
“Seeing her leave at such an early point in the competition, it’s sad, but it’s 100% the right thing to do,” Slater said at the time. “And she just superseded all kinds of expectations. She got 40 from the judges, a standing ovation, and she’s an absolute goddess. I think her and Sasha together are the perfect team. He did so well with her, and we’re all friends for life, for sure.”

You have inspired me and the whole world.”
