Dancing With The Stars: Maksim Chmerkovskiy Fires Back At The Judges

October 10, 2010 09:00 AM by Lisa Princ


Last Monday after he and Brandy’s performance on ABC‘s Dancing With The Stars, Maksim Chmerkovskiy took some major critique from the judges in regards to his teaching techniques as well as almost getting smacked on the behind by Carrie Ann Inaba. Maks is not taking it lightly though as he fires back at the judges. Keep reading for all the details!

Dancing With The Stars professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy is used to taking critique on his dance moves but not on his teaching techniques. Last week after seeing their rehearsals, Maks was criticized for smacking Brandy on the behind to get her to move her hips a certain way by both Carrie Ann and Len. After their performance, Carrie Ann attempted to smack Maksim on the behind. In a recent interview with E! online, Maks shared that he was not happy about Carrie Ann’s actions by saying “It’s an absurdly disrespectful thing for her to even think of doing. Is she crazy? She’s not my mother.” Maks also states that he is not as hard on Brandy as some seem to think claiming “Nobody feels disrespected, nobody feels mistreated, and certainly I’m not an abusive person.”

Maks goes on to tell E! online about the critique of his teaching methods “There’s no reason to comment on my teaching methods. Their job is to assess a celebrity’s dancing at that moment. I just feel the judges take it upon themselves to judge way more than they are supposed to – and it’s a shame. But it is what it is. I feel like it takes away from what the show is and Brandy’s experience. It’s about her. My teaching methods have nothing to do with our samba.”

While Maksim Chmerkovskiy is looking forward to he and Brandy’s performance this week, he is also discouraged with the current season as he shares “I don’t understand how the scores are being done. I don’t understand why some couples are being kept on the show. I mean, there were other couples yesterday that literally put their heart and soul into it and did a much better job than they got scored. I just feel it’s a little bit unreasonable.” Could Maks be on to something or he is just upset over last week? Comment and let us know your thoughts!
