Adam Carolla is looking back at a few of his missteps on Dancing with the Stars.

On the latest episode of the Sex, Lies, and Spray Tans podcast, the radio personality, who competed on the sixth season of the ABC dance competition, recalled inadvertently calling judge Carrie Ann Inaba "a bitch" during one of the live shows.

The moment was reportedly heard by fans after the judges gave out their scores and Carolla could be heard mumbling, "Oh, bitch," after receiving a 5 from Inaba.

“Okay, so did you call Carrie Ann a bitch?” podcast host and former DWTS pro Cheryl Burke asked, as Carolla, 59, responded, “I did and I forgot I did it.”

“[The producers] told me I did and I was like, ‘I didn’t say it,’ and they were like, ‘Yeah, you said it,’” he shared. “And I was like, ‘I did?’”

When Burke asked if it was simply “a reaction from like [scoring] a five,” he clarified, “No, I called her a bitch and I didn't have a recollection of it, which is weird.”

The radio personality shared later in the podcast that he had “no beef” with anyone including Inaba, adding, “I knew what the job was. They knew what the job was. I get it.”

Carolla, who was eliminated in the fourth week of the competition in 2008, also admitted that he shared an awkward moment with fellow contestant Marissa Jaret Winokur while attempting to calm her nerves.

The comedian recalled the actress, 50, being “a bundle of nerves” before showtime and he tried to help her with some of his own “wisdom.”

“So I walked up to her and [contestant] Penn Jillette was standing there. He was trying to help too,” he said. “I go, ‘Look, you're not gonna have fun out there. But you know what you're gonna have, you're gonna have an experience. You're gonna have experience you couldn’t trade for anything. It’s such a crazy experience.”

He remembered telling her that Dancing with the Stars is “an experience you can't buy” and then comparing it to childbirth.

"I said, ‘You know, childbirth, having a child, is it fun? No. Would you miss it for the world? It’s [an] experience and that’s what this is. This is childbirth, [it’s] the most important experience you’re ever gonna have’” he recalled. “And she goes, ‘I just had ovarian cancer and I can't have kids.’”

He added: "And Penn Jillette started laughing like the insane atheists he is. Penn Jillette is like, ‘Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god.’”

He revealed that he simply uttered, 'Ah, what?’ after the Hairspray’s star personal revelation.

Elsewhere in the episode, Carolla joked that he was bummed nobody praised him for riding a unicycle during one of his dances. "The judges didn't say anything," he laughed. "I remember at the time going, yeah, no one said, 'Hey, nice job on the unicycle,' or anything."
