*On “Dancing with the Stars,” Brandy admitted that it’s been a while since she’s been intimate with a man. In an interview with Life & Style, she explains why.

“I haven’t been with a man seriously and in love in six years. And, honestly, I tend to abstain if I’m not in a relationship,” she tells the magazine. “Although it hasn’t actually been a full six years, it’s been a long time. We’re talking years.”

“I actually went on a blind date a couple months ago that was very interesting but nothing serious,” she adds, noting that she tried to get back in the dating game with rapper Flo Rida.

“I was very interested in him. I mean, how can you not be — he’s very attractive. But there was just something about us that didn’t click,” she says.

In other Brandy “Dancing” news, shock jock Howard Stern says he’s put off by the way she is treated by her professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy during rehearsals – particularly because Brandy is black and Maks is white.

“This guy is yelling at her, giving her the business about how she has to work harder,” Stern said. “She’s being a good sport about it, pretending like this actually matters if they’re dancing the f***ing samba correctly. All of the sudden, while he’s training her he starts smacking her on the ass.”

“This guy is training a woman, a black woman,” Stern added. “You know when a man walks by a woman and makes a sound like she’s a fine horse? He’s smacking her on the ass like she’s his personal property, like back in the slave days. I was astounded they were showing this on TV.”
