On Monday’s Broadway themed episode of Dancing With The Stars, soccer player Hope Solo performed a saucy Rumba with her professional dance partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Head judge Len Goodman wasn’t feeling their performance and commented that it was Hope’s worst dance of the season. On Tuesday, we reported the scuffle:
Len said he was really disappointed and then the audience started boo’ing. Maks was encouraging them to get louder with their disapproval. Len told Maks, “Don’t start all of that Maks, because half of the fault is yours.”
Maks replied with, “As long as the audience liked our journey, we’re good.”
Len quipped, “The audience liked the effect” and commented that he’s been in the business for fifty years. Maks snapped, “Maybe it’s time to go!”
Maks went on to talk to Brooke Charvet about the incident, telling her that it’s “his” show. The judges appeared upset at his proclamation. Now, Maks is revealing that he will not apologize for his comments from Monday night.
The dancing pro appeared on Good Morning America and said that he has nothing to be sorry about. He said, “I definitely have nothing to apologize for. I have nothing to apologize for to Len, and certainly not to Carrie Ann. She can make all the faces she wants. The last time I apologized was to my grandma when she was dying of cancer.”
He added, “I don’t regret anything. That’s why I think I’m a bit misunderstood in this situation. Everyone is waiting for me to bow my head, take a knee and say I’m sorry and plea for forgiveness. I have nothing to apologize for.”
Do you agree with Maks? Or do you feel he was out of line?
