Romance is an integral part of Dancing With The Stars. As such, the show’s Facebook fans are always eager to learn more when they catch wind of new DWTS dating rumors. Season eighteen’s great love story appears to involve partners James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd. Any truth to the gossip?
James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd displayed amazing chemistry during yesterday’s debut performance on Dancing With The Stars. Their foxtrot earned 21 points, which is a more than respectable premiere night score. But some fans wonder whether the couple might have offered up an even better perfromance, had they managed to ignore the persistent dating gossip.
The two have been rumored to be a couple ever since they were spotted together in early February. James Maslow acknowledged the romance gossip in a recent interview with RumorFix, maintaining that, while the pair did enjoy a dinner date last month, they are definitely not an item. We’re there with the same intention and that’s to dance…We don’t want to complicate that at this moment and add dating to the long list of work to do.”
Although she failed to expand on the dating rumors in her latest Dancing With The Stars blog post, Peta did refer to James as a “great-looking” and “cute” guy, not to mention, “very charming.” Following last night’s romantic performance, she took to Twitter to offer up even more praise, exclaiming, “Woohoo I’m so proud of @JamesMaslow tonight!”
