Lance Bass doesn’t need Dr. Phil or Oprah Winfrey when he’s suffering heartache. All the former *NSync singer needs are his dogs, Dingo and Foster.
“They’re my buddies when I go through breakups,” Bass tells People.
“Foster likes to play with skunks,” Bass laughs. “Then he comes in my bed and it’s like, ‘Whoa!’”
Bass is currently on tour with fellow “Dancing with the Stars” finalists. Bass and professional dancing partner Lacey Schwimmer finished third on the show.
“I’ve been choreographed before, but I think in a way it hurt me,” Bass says. “We had hip-hop training [in *NSync], and it was the opposite of what I had to learn for ballroom. With hip-hop it’s very loose, very freestyle, very low. With ballroom it’s all about your lines, your posture, it’s something I really had to work on.”
