Hope Solo Claims It Was Not Her Decision To Avoid Post Elimination Interviews

November 17, 2011 08:24 AM by Lisa Princ

This week on ABC‘s Dancing With The Stars,¬†fans watched as Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were eliminated. After the elimination, ¬†most of us assumed that after the way the couple acted all season, that Hope Solo decided to snub the press, as she did not have any interviews. Finally, the soccer star has showed up again on Twitter, claiming it was not her decision to not participate in any post elimination interviews. Who was responsible for it? Read on to find out!

Hope Solo broke down after her elimination from Dancing With The Stars this week, and when the regular post elimination press interviews came around and Hope was no where to be found, most of us assumed that Hope Solo was just a sore loser. Hope Solo recently took to her Twitter page to clear the air as she posted: “I’m sitting at the airport happy as can be. I would have have loved to have been on kimmel or gma to officially thank all the wonderful people I met,” adding “I’m sorry everybody! @maksimC and I would never want to cheat our fans! We love you guys! It wasn’t our decision,” after one fan questioned why they did not appear.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, it was ABC’s decision to air the three finalists, instead of Hope Solo and Maks, which happened to be a decision that was made before the eliminated contestant was even revealed. Show reps also said that Hope Solo is available for interviews before she returns to the finale next week – perhaps we will get to see one during the show. We apologize for assuming that Hope Solo snubbed the media, and we are thrilled to know that she did not blow off all her interviews.

    Damage already done, but thanks for trying to correct the error. It will be a very long time before I forget how Hope was treated by ABC, DWTS, and Hollywood and how they are still treating her with their misinformation. It is all very transparent now. They couldn’t have found a nicer person to try to destroy for the sake of ratings and headlines and they are still at it. It’s sick.

    Foe being a professional athlete, Hope was the poorest sport I have ever seen on this show. She acted like a spoiled brat that could not take professional criticism from the judges. Hats off to the other stars that took their criticism with style. Max needs to go too…he is getting too full of himself. The best three are still standing where they should be.

    Hey folks, Is going to be the U.S. significantly far better off staying with Syria’s Assad?
