After Maksim Chmerkovskiy blew up at Len Goodman last week on ABC‘s Dancing With The Stars, we heard Derek Hough‘s thoughts, and rumor has it that these two pro dancers really can’t stand each other. Big shocker, huh? More after the jump…
Maksim Chmerkovskiy lost his cool on judge Len Goodman last week, and Derek Hough then told the press when asked for his thoughts: “As a seasoned professional, you should know not to do that, I think. There’s sort of an amount of self control,” but Maks made sure to slam Derek Hough right back saying: “Derek Hough has been very supportive of his personal career on the show. When you say judges have been generous, with all due respect, if I had Nicole Scherzinger followed by Jennifer Grey followed by Ricki Lake, I probably would not be very upset with the judges either.”
So it should come as no surprise that these two professional dancers can’t stand each other, right? While we were left to speculate if this feud would escalate, things cooled down instead, but an insider recently told US Magazine of the pair: “They hate each other.” Another source close to the show added: “The professional dance community is really small. The dancers have known one another their entire lives. Now that the group is famous, it’s added a whole other level of rivalry and competitiveness.”
Meanwhile, Derek Hough was not amused by Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s last comment, and Derek countered that by telling US Magazine: “I had a laugh about that comment. I was looking at the plaque upstairs and…well, never mind,” in reference to the nameplate on the the set that lists the past winners, which Maks is not a part of. According to the source, the feud between Maks and Derek was only fueled when Derek’s sister, Julianne Hough told Maks she was not interested in a serious relationship, but then started seeing Ryan Seacrest.
