Sasha Farber and Emma Slater appeared in a So You Think You Can Dance episode. On the July 21, 2022, episode of “Dancing With the Stars,” the pros created a Jive for Keaton Kermode and Ezra Sosa. According to Inside Dance, this was the “first same-sex Latin ballroom routine done in the history of the series.”
Farber and Slater were ecstatic to be working with Kermode and to see Sosa, a DWTS rookie, enter the floor for rehearsals. “He is extraordinarily talented, and he was Keaton’s ideal co-star. Ezra was significant support in this Jive because it was an all-male piece and assistance was required, according to Slater’s comments in Inside Dance.

Many fans believe Farber and Slater have separated and are waiting for the proper moment to reveal the news. Neither Farber nor Slater has verified or denied the status of their marriage.
“Based only on the caption, it does not appear that they are still together. It appears that she felt compelled to post. “Saying ‘I wish you anything your heart desires and ‘here to cheer you on no matter what makes me believe that a separation announcement is imminent,” one Redditor said in response to Slater’s birthday message to Farber.
“I have waited the entire day to see whether she has posted anything. When she says “everyone loves you,” she does not add “, particularly by me.” In comparison to her prior birthday posts, this reads very much like something a buddy would write. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if something were to happen shortly,” someone else remarked.
“I attempt not to read too much into it and give them the benefit of the doubt that they are working behind the scenes, but gosh, this is so generic. There is no emotion present in these words. It’s not personal. Anyone may have authored this text. No “I love you” from a spouse, as one would expect. Quite mysterious, in fact, wrote the third person.
“I believe they are separated but remain on cordial terms. “I could be wrong, but that’s the impression I get,” read the fourth comment.
