It’s a sad, sad day for all of the ladies (and some gents) who fawn all over the shirtless beefcakes on “Dancing With The Stars” every season. Resident professional dancer and reigning champion Maksim Chmerkovskiy is absolutely done with the dancing competition! Boo!
He took the mirror ball trophy on the last season of the show when dancing his way to the top with his partner Meryl Davis and now it seems that he is ready to hang up his dancing shoes, on television anyways. During a recent appearance on “The View”, the Ukranian professional dancer said that he was done with “DWTS”.
He revealed, “I’m done dancing. I feel like it’s time. When I came back to the show, it was not the same – I was different, probably. When I came back, I saw this amazing talent. I looked at it and thought they can much more and better. I was taking up a huge spot.”
He originally left the dancing show after competing in season 16, but returned for its 18th season and kicked some serious butt. After his win, he revealed, “I want Meryl to be the last person I dance with. The last person I got to be passionate with and care so much for.”
He added, “I raised so many children at the studio that I am ready to create one of my own. I am really ready to have a family now. I need an outlet. I have so much I want to give, and I need someone to give it to.”
Ladies, any takers?
Rumor has it that the dancing pro has been dating Jennifer Lopez, but that has yet to be confirmed. Perhaps if they are dating, they could be looking toward perhaps having a baby together? Is that a bit of a stretch? Anything is possible in the world of show business, no?
