Maksim Chmerkovskiy Won't Be Dancing with the Stars

by at . Comments

The contestants for this season of Dancing with the Stars will be announced tonight. But we can say this already: the cast will be much uglier than last year.

That's because Maksim Chmerkovskiy won't be included in it.

"He just needs a break," said an ABC spokesperson of Maksim to take a season off from the series. "He is part of the Dancing family, and he will be back."

A fan favorite (i.e. a complete and utter hottie!), Chmerkovskiy may appear on several of Dancing with the Stars' results shows when the pros are featured in group-choreographed dances.

In the meantime, he's putting the finishing touches on a fitness DVD with fellow pro Cheryl Burke. He's also appearing on the February 26 episode of All My Children, teaching various characters how to pole dance.

Thank goodness he's not gone for good! He's the main reason I watch DWS. He's a fantistic dancer and REAL EASY on the eyes! He and Cheryl are the best. I'll be looking for their exercise DVD to come out. Hurry Back!!!!!!!!!!

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
