Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars is heating up Monday nights, and dance pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy is right in the middle of things. Maks recently did an appearance in Minnesota, and StarTribune columnist C.J. had a chance to talk with the Ukrainian dancer. She got some good chuckles from him and there were some fun highlights.
During her quick chat, C.J. teased him about how much his celebrity partner Kirstie Alley would love to have a fling with him, and he laughed it off. He said, "I don't think so. I think Kirstie and I are having fun, let's put it that way." C.J. tried to get a bit about Peta out of him when she asked, "Everything's OK with you and your girlfriend?" Unfortunately, Maks again played coy answering, "Who? I've been linked in a lot of magazines to a lot of people. Let's just say my personal life is great."
C.J. also tried to get him to dish on having Bristol Palin back on the show, as she's perhaps the most controversial returnee of the season. Maks stayed professional though when he said, "I wish Bristol all the best. I'm happy for her. Happy to see her back." It was a fun interview that showed the light side of Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
How will Maks and Kirstie do this season on Dancing With the Stars: All Stars? It's going to be a tough season, but fans are thrilled to have them back. Tune in Monday night to see Maksim and Kirstie to the jive on ABC's DWTS: All-Stars, Season 15.
