James Maslow Insists He’s Not Dating Peta Murgatroyd

April 08, 2014 10:38 AM by Stephanie Gustafson


James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd have been getting mighty cozy on Dancing With The Stars, but switch-up week forced the actor into the arms of Cheryl Burke. Facebook fans really want to believe that James and Peta are an item…and apparently, so does Erin Andrews!

For two people that are supposedly not dating, James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd sure have great chemistry. Then again, chemistry might be James’ strong suit, as he got on mighty fine with Cheryl Burke during switch-up week on Dancing With The Stars.

James and Peta have made it quite clear that they don’t want to answer any more questions about their love lives. But that didn’t stop Erin Andrews from addressing the rumors last night. She announced, “It sounds like we have a little bit of talking to do,” adding, “Can I just say this? Can you tell us you’re dating? I want a Dancing With the Stars baby.”

An obviously annoyed Peta simply wiped her brow and muttered, “Oh my God.” James, on the other hand, continued to play coy. “You can’t have a baby while you’re dancing, alright? So that’s not gonna happen.”

Erin’s continued questioning launched yet another firestorm on Twitter. James didn’t address the rumors, but he did warn Charlie White (Peta’s switch-up partner) to not get too comfortable, as “[Peta's] coming back to me next week!”

Do you think James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd are an item? Or have you tired of all the dating speculation? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it, so feel free to sound off in the comments section below!

    To be honest, I don’t like Erin Andrews. She is consistently asking James and Peta about their relationship and they get quite uncomfortable. Let it go. This is Dancing With The Stars. Not Dating with The Stars. I miss Brooke so much. Why can’t she come back???

    Are you kidding?
    Peta is best friends with Erin Andrews sister, and by
    Peta’s own admission, friends with Erin as well. Peta’s fake
    embarassment was just that ..” fake”. The question just
    inserted Peta into the conversation when it should
    have been about the amazing dance just performed
    by James and Cheryl Burke.
    Peta loved it! It keeps her tabloid relevant. She has been “linked” to every single one of her partners since she arrived on DWTS. That is not counting her nearly year long sleep over with Maks last year, until he “got over” her (his words). Her bf of 5 years she moved to LA with is even on the show.
    Her male roommate (who has connections to the show)
    introduced her to James Maslow in February after
    they strategically “chose” him as her next conquest. The roommate even went to dinner at Sur with them to make sure it went well. The very idea that she was “surprised” that James was her partner is complete bullshit. That was always the plan. James is clearly infatuated, but is being played by the older, much more “experienced” Peta. He had been in a relationship with the much younger Nickelodeon Halston Sage off and on for 4 years. James came back from his BTR tour with no other projects lined up and the show BTR cancelled, thus DWTS.
    Of course they are having sex, but who cares?
    It’s reality TV! It’s all about publicity and ratings.
    Have fun James! Well played Peta!

    No words for James Masow!
    It is one thing to be young and foolish, but to throw away his career before it even begins is just unbelievable!
    That series of poses (not a choreographed samba) with Peta in her underwear was all about Peta and crossed the line of taste and class as well as standards for prime time TV (even a reality show). So now that he has had his Miley Cyrus moment, he should circle April 28, 2014 on his calendar, so that he will always remember the day he lost his dignity and threw away any possibility of being taken seriously in the entertainment industry. Just another Nickelodeon kid that didn’t quite make it.

    James Maslow deserves to go simply because he uses the cheap tricks Peta has taught him and not progressed in his technique as a dancer.
    He is very over rated (looking at you Carrie Ann, Bruno and Julienne Hough).
    We expect the “flash and trash” from Peta each week and that is just what she has taught and choreographed for him (and Charlie). All she knows is how to “burn the floor” and maybe more.

    Peta should take notes, maybe even a lesson from Meryl who has proven that real technique combined with grace and elegance is not only show stopping but sexy.
    (Btw: Mad respect for Maks Chmerkovskiy)

    Peta will be back next season because she brings in the ratings. James will be calling his agent every day because he is finally too old for Nickelodeon.
