Since the break-up, Hodek has had several run-ins with the law.
She has taught middle school English for the last 10 years and is passionate about instilling a love of writing and literature in the hearts of young learners.
Her biological mother was an addict, and her father was killed in a prison riot.
The former dancer's eventual elimination, which took place immediately after she and Motsepe got a perfect score on their jive, shocked many of her fans.
The actress was given up by her mother when she was just 9 months old.
In the past she was also associated with drug abuse.
