Last week, partners Melissa Joan Hart and Mark Ballas soared a total of nine points above their previous score, making it the biggest jump in Dancing With The Stars history.Â Their Charleston dance was even chosen as the encore performance.Â The pair recently spoke to PEOPLE magazine about their path to victory… and it might include Melissa shutting up!
â€œI call her â€˜Tangent,’” Mark told PEOPLE at the 5th Annual GLSEN Respect Awards.Â “She can talk â€¦ a lot, and about the most random things, because one thing will set her off, and she will talk about that forever, and that will link to something else, and that will link to something else â€¦ and then twenty minutes will go by.â€
But Mark didn’t quite get away with that comment.
When asked how she would describe her instructor, Melissa replied with, â€œBossy.”Â â€œShe thinks that Iâ€™m mean,â€ Mark added, â€œshe wouldnâ€™t last five minutes with Maks Chmerkovskiy.â€Â Oh, snap!Â Good thing Maks isn’t still around or I think there might be a ballroom brawl.
