We know that you can’t get the almost nude image of Len Goodman out of your head from the results show on ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars last night, but we have a more serious issue today. After Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were eliminated last night, not surprisingly, the judges are now being accused of plotting some sort of political campaign against them. Yep, we’re sure you know whose mouth that came out of, but read on for the details!
Despite being more quiet and controlled with his temper this season on Dancing With The Stars, the controversy king, aka Maksim Chmerkovskiy is back at it! After he and his partner, Melissa Gilbert were eliminated from the show, Maks was not thrilled and in denial as he told reporters: “I’m not going to lie to you. I don’t feel like this was a fan elimination. I feel like it was a political campaign of some sort, but I’m not bitter about it, you know?” Hmm, not bitter? He’s basically accusing the judges of influencing the fans that much? Come on Maks, we love you, but the fans can make up their own minds.
Melissa Gilbert was not the best dancer from the get go, so for her, it was no surprise that she was eliminated. The Little House on The Prairie star had no hard feelings after the show as she said: “It would have been really, really unfair to see Katherine go home because of a glitch. A wardrobe malfunction. She’s an extraordinary dancer. An extraordinary dancer and I told her before, ‘It’s not going to be you.’” Melissa Gilbert thanked her fans, and is glad to be able to take a breather now. The best part of the show for her? Learning that she was capable of more than she imagined she was!
Now it’s your turn to sound off! Was Melissa Gilbert’s elimination nothing more than a political campaign? Comment and share your thoughts below!
