Holy freaking hotness. That's all we can say about the rumor that Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, partners on the new season of Dancing with the Stars, are partnering off the dance floor as well. Maks even said it might be on!
Chmerkovskiy says that he and the ESPN sportscaster are "maybe" dating. That's a lot closer to dating than "no," right? He also lavished praise upon his partner.
"She doesn't hold back. She's open, and what you see is what there is," Chmerkovskiy told People magazine. "Everybody who meets her falls in love with her."
Himself included? Sounds like it!
Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy work it.
Chmerkovskiy, who was engaged to fellow Dancing with the Stars cast member Karina Smirnoff for a time, credited himself for pushing Andrews during their first dance together last Monday, which ranked among the season premiere's best.
"I made her do a cha-cha that I would make a professional dancer do," he said, and it paid off, as Erin Andrews isn't shy about gushing about him either.
"When Kentucky was upset, [Maks] texted me about it," the ESPN reporter said of having to miss some of the NCAA tournament for DWTS rehearsal. "Maks was like, 'You are the only person I know that cares about this.' He's been adorable."
