US Magazine’s current issue features the professional dancers who are returning to Dancing With The Stars after some time off, Cheryl Burke, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Derek Hough. You get so wrapped up in your partner, and then the show’s over. ” Us: Cheryl, you admitted to a fling with Chad Ochocinco in 2010, and Derek, you dated Shannon Elizabeth in 2008. CB: With Chad, I think I wanted it to be serious, but I couldn’t handle it. She did love working with Jack Osbourne and Rob Kardashian and so she complimented them by name.Derek only sat out the last season, 22, this spring after winning season 21 last fall with Bindi Irwin. He did some dating show [VH1’s Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch]. As for Maksim saying that Kirstie Alley disconnected from him, it’s hilarious to me that they sent a note to his friend naming the practice when Scientology officials have said so many times that it’s not real and doesn’t exist.UPDATE: We don't recommend holding your breath in the hopes of a Kirstie Alley-Maksim Chmerkovskiy reconciliation.
Alley subsequently called Remini a “bigot” for the stunt, reports People.
The Ukrainian dancer told Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live” that Alley stopped “getting along” with him. but I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can’t be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is,” he explained.
So, short of taking f--king salsa lessons, I might as well go do Dancing With the Stars! MC: I just literally said everything that everybody else thinks. The producers have changed, and it’s different now. Production has said to me, honestly: “People are complaining, so we’re going to give you this partner, because it seems more difficult.” Then I ended up winning. CB: People are like, “Derek has six Mirrorball Trophies! When I won my first two seasons, people thought it was being rigged. MC: I’m the person who will say something and just move on. This guy says some s--t, and then everybody is like, “Oh, my God, what did he say? But I’ve benefited tremendously from speaking my mind. I have a new understanding that there is more than one way of getting things done.
DH: It was frustrating [being accused of favoritism], because it discounted my work and how much I put into teaching and choreography. Whatever somebody says about me, that’s a reflection on how they feel and how they are.
"I may turn off a bigger percentage of people than I keep around," the 14-time Dancing With the Stars pro, 36, tells Us Weekly. Cheryl Burke: The last time on the show, with Antonio Sabato Jr., I remember feeling really worn-out and not wanting to be there.
“But over a period of, let’s say, 10 years, people all come back in some way, saying, ‘Hey, we haven’t spoken in a decade, but I understand where you’re coming from, and I want us to continue being friends.’ I have a 100 percent return rate.” Us: So, why return to the show? I went to Japan and did a show called Love the Floor, and it brought back my love for dancing. Us: The pro-partner relationship is intense, almost like you’re a real couple. CB: Well, we do dry-hump each other for what seems like 24/7 for a few months!
Sometimes my mouth gets me in trouble and I should just stick to dancing!
Maksim Chmerkovskiy knows from experience that you can always go home again. But I kept the diamond necklace he gave me for my birthday! I don’t care who you are: If you come in with a bad attitude and you’re stuck up and can’t take direction from women?
You get so wrapped up in your partner, and then the show’s over. ”Us: Cheryl, you admitted to a fling with Chad Ochocinco in 2010, and Derek, you dated Shannon Elizabeth in 2008. CB: With Chad, I think I wanted it to be serious, but I couldn’t handle it. Us: Cheryl, you called your 2007 partner Ian Ziering the “worst” because of his attitude. MC: That lie generated so much publicity, my grandmother was getting death threats! Us: Which partners surprised you the most with their talent? And, you know, that’s why you wear black underwear.
I always joke that I’ve been married and divorced 18 times. I find it ridiculous for an adult human being to “disconnect” from someone. Us: What about Hope Solo, who accused you in 2011 of hitting her? I’ll feel too feminine.” Come on, enjoy the process! He made it a big deal and this led to a fight, which we then had to retake on camera, like, “Can you walk out the door and slam it again? DH: One partner had a meltdown in rehearsal that was so bad, I went over to the camera, ejected the tape and broke it. They said, “You cannot interfere,” but there was no way I was going to let a human being come off like that.
A note was sent to a friend telling me I was “disconnected,” as in, I am no longer allowed to be Kirstie’s friend.
