Melissa Gilbert has admitted that she was frustrated with the footage of her Dancing with the Stars rehearsals in last night's show.

The video, prior to Gilbert's performance, showed the contestant arguing with her professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

However, Gilbert and Chmerkovskiy have suggested that the footage was edited to make it seem like they had a more difficult time than they really did.

"It's frustrating, but it's also silly," Gilbert told Us Weekly. "It's counterproductive because I don't get the point of it. It's ridiculous - we disagree sometimes, but more often than not it benefits me because look what happens [with my performances]!"

Chmerkovskiy also admitted that he "could be upset" by the video but continued: "Actually, I think no-one else's negative moments are light enough for TV. Mine are the lightest that you can broadcast. The rest are so bad you can't show them on TV. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

"This was the most fun week we've had. We maybe had 3-4% of the time that was bad - this is week six! What do you expect?"

Chmerkovskiy described Gilbert as "amazing" and concluded: "We don't make a story or a package out of any little thing, we tell the truth and this is our journey, you know? If we're the only ones who know what the real story is then so be it. My conscience is clear."

The Dancing with the Stars results show will air tonight (April 24) at 9/8c on ABC.
