Maksim Chmerkovskiy likes and respects Marie Osmond as a person. But as a dancer?
Let's just say he was less than enamored with her "living doll" performance on last night's Dancing with the Stars season finale.
"I guess she came out trying to do something... Whatever it is, I guess it's between her and Jonathan. But nobody else knows what it is," Chmerkovskiy told OK! Weekly after the broadcast.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy is really, really handsome.
The handsome partner of Melanie Brown also didn't take back his comments from last week, when he said many other competitors, already eliminated, were more talented than Marie.
"I just said what everybody else was thinking," Chmerkovskiy sai. "To add to that, Marie is one of those people you can't find any flaws with. I have nothing but the utmost respect for her. God knows this woman went through a lot this season. But, having said that, this is a dance show."
