Dancing With the Stars Smackdown: Mad Maksim Chmerkovskiy Calls Out Len Goodman!

by at . Comments

Dancing With the Stars' Maksim Chmerkovskiy leaves it all out on the floor every week, and does not mince words when it comes to his partners - or the judges.

Last night, the brewing tension between Maks and Len Goodman reached critical mass after Hope Solo received some of the lowest scores of the sixth week.

Goodman insisted that Chmerkovskiy and his partner had their "worst dance of the season” and he knows because he has “been in this business for 50 years.”

Maks snapped back, saying “Then maybe it's time to go!”

Ouch. Watch the routine and exchange in question here ...

Afterward, he wasn't about to back down either. “With all due respect, this is my show,” Chmerkovskiy told host Brooke Burke Charvet. “I help make it what it is.”

What do you think? Was Maks out of line here? Or is he just doing his part as a dancer, defending his partner? And does Len have a grudge against Chmerkovskiy?

Whose side are you on?


I'm sorry, I like Len but it does seem like he is constantly picking on Maks and his partners every season. And this season in particular I haven't heard them say much of anything nice to him and Hope. Now with that said I will also concede that Hope is not the best dancer there but she is trying and they should give her kudo's for that. The only negative thing I will say is that she needs to lose her attitude. The eye rolling, and snotty attitude isn't helping her cause and that really sucks because Maks is an awesome instructor and he deserves to get that mirror ball.


Hope is a clod, Len is right, Maks...is an asshole, plain and simple...poor loser.


Len should be removed from the judges, he knows nothing about feedback
