“DWTS” loves to show the more, let’s say, “difficult” moments from rehearsals in their packages. They certainly like to show pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy more than most. His partner Melissa Gilbert seems to get along very well with him, and Maks seemed a bit annoyed by the whole thing on the press line after the Week 6 show.
“I could get mad, I could be upset about this but actually I
think what’s happening is that no one else’s negative moments are light enough
for TV,” he says. “Mine are the lightest that you can broadcast, all the others… It’s like
we can’t show this on TV. So that’s the story and I’m sticking with it because
everyone gets frustrated. Literally this was the funnest week we never had,
maybe 3 or 4% of the time we clashed, but come on – this is week 6.“
He says of his partner, “This woman is amazing, she’s bionic. I am telling you, she has
overcome so much already. We don’t talk about anything or make a story in
packages over things where others blow-up, and to tell you the truth this is
our journey and if we are the only ones that know what that is then so be it.
My conscience is clear.”
“Dancing With the Stars: The Results Show” airs Tuesday night on ABC.
