Sara Evans, who last week announced not just the end of her marriage but her exit from Dancing with the Stars, will explain why she is leaving ABC's dance show in a taped interview to be played during Tuesday night's telecast, her attorney tells the Washington Post.

In divorce papers filed Thursday, Evans claimed that her husband, Craig Schelske, cheated on her, verbally abused her, drank excessively and watched porn in their home. A spokesperson for Evans' hubby tells the Post that Schelske "was completely caught off guard" by the legal action, and "does not want to play this out in the media." In response, the American media said in a statement, "Pfft. It's hot copy."
