Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Dancing with the Stars feuds have gone hand in hand over the years, but in this case, most fans are likely to be on his side.

The combustible pro is none too pleased at Julianne Hough, who guest judged the ABC hit series this week and hinted that he phoned in his performance.

"You can accuse me of a lot of things," said Maksim.

"You can't accuse me of not working hard enough."

Maks' comments came in response to Hough's accusation that he didn't give it all on Monday's "switch up" episode, when he partnered with Danica McKellar.

Suffice it to say, Chmerkovskiy didn't take kindly to that.

Following the blowup, some social media users suggested that Hough may have been taking sides because her brother Derek is still in competition.

"She said it and now she has to own up to it," said Maks.

Dancing with the Stars' Peta Murgatroyd and James Maslow may or may not be dating, and Erin Andrews was determined to find out on the show last night.

It was momentarily uncomfortable in the ballroom at the 7:00 mark ...

The new Dancing With the Stars co-host went in for the kill after James' performance which Cheryl Burke (his partner for one "switch up" night only).

"It sounds like we have a little bit of talking to do," she said to the duo. "Can I just ... can you tell us you're dating? I want a Dancing With the Stars baby!"

"You're adorable! C'mon, who doesn't want this?"

Erin Andrews' questioning didn't go over so well.

"Oh my God," Peta replied, as she wiped her brow uncomfortably. Maslow added: "You can't have a baby while you're dancing, alright? So that's not gonna happen."

Monday marked the anticipated partner "switch up" night on Dancing with the Stars, plus the return of guest judge and former pro dancer Julianne Hough.

The results? There were none, as co-host Erin Andrews told us last week's scores will be combined with this week's scores. Someone's out next week.

So, this one-week "switch up" will give the celebrities and pros a reprieve.

It's the second straight such respite, really, since Billy Dee Williams took himself out of the running a week ago. Hey, less pressure going into the routine.

The Dancing with the Stars scores from the last two weeks combined ...

Dancing With the Stars' emotional performances are real, honest, and near impossible to fake. The results and voting process, however? Another story.

After being ousted on last Monday's shocking double elimination, Sean Avery implied that the format was tweaked just to get him off the ABC reality hit.

"I think we knew as of probably Monday last week that our fate was sealed," the former NHL star said in an interview on Good Morning America.

"I had a conversation with Conrad [Green], one of the producers, and I was upset at the package that they had brought in the week previous."

"It was a very tacky attempt to show me as the bad boy of DWTS."

"And I think in reality TV or some sort of competition, if you have a disagreement with the producers then generally that seals your fate quite early."

Amy Purdy, the Olympic snowboarding champion with two prosthetic legs, already came to Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars with quite a back story.

Wait until you hear her tell it through dance.

On a night where were no real Dancing With the Stars results - Billy Dee Williams withdrew and everyone else was safe off the bat - there was plenty of emotion.

Each star had to dedicate their performance to their life's most memorable year, and for Amy Purdy, it was 1999, when she lost both her legs to meningitis.

She and Derek Hough's beautiful performance, set to “Only Human,” left not a dry eye in the audience. Bruno even called it "borderline miraculous."

Given what she's been through? Not a huge stretch. Carrie Ann said Amy was so inspiring, especially while exposing her legs and feet for the first time.

“I hope you know what you are doing for people. Anyone who is facing a challenge, you let them know they can begin again,” guest Robin Roberts said.

To top it all off, they received a score of 36, good for second place!

This week's Dancing With the Stars results were decided not by the judges or the fans, but by one of the participants who decided he could not continue.

Billy Dee Williams, citing a chronic back problem and medical advice, withdrew from season 18 of ABC’s dancing competition on Monday night.

The 77-year-old Star Wars actor thanked his pro partner, Emma Slater, and said he’d always remember his time on the show, even if it was cut short.

“And I want to thank every one of you folks who’ve been supporting us,” Williams said, gesturing to the audience, which gave him a standing ovation.

Williams, who recently had hip surgery, has been at the bottom of the scoreboard, struggling on the dance floor despite winning votes with his spirit.

No one was voted off the dance floor as a result on Monday's episode, which also featured Good Morning America's Robin Roberts as a guest judge.

The routines in the third episode of this season were all dedicated to the most memorable year of the stars' lives. How did the scores shake out?

Candace Cameron Bure may be new to the world of competitive dancing, but it seems she has plenty of practice with the horizontal mambo, if ya know what we mean.

Candace Cameron Bure Paparazzi

The former Full House actress and new Dancing With the Stars contestant has opened up about her faith and family life and it seems nearly two decades of marriage haven't slowed her down in the bedroom.

"I am a sexual woman," Cameron said recently when asked about her sensual dance moves. She added: "I want to reserve certain things for my husband. So we did, I think, the best that we could with the rumba I felt comfortable doing."

Realizing that Uncle Jessie probably wouldn't approve of all this sexy rumba talk, Bure then added, "I'm a Christian! My life revolves around my relationship with Christ."

Cameron has made it clear to dance partner Mark Ballas that she won't be wearing any revealing clothing during their routines, as doing so would conflict with her faith.

Cameron, a mother of three, has been married to former NHL player Valerie Bure for 18 years. Her brother, Kirk Cameron, also gained fame as a child star before abandoning acting to become an evangelical minister.

Just two minutes into last night's Dancing With the Stars, hosts Erin Andrews and Tom Bergeron shocked the couples with the news that not one but TWO sets of dancers wouldn't make it to the credits.

Then the hosts told them that the celebs would be dancing the dance they said they most wanted to perform when they had no dancing experience.

Hope they're all quick studies!

Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke went first, dancing the jive. They are safe for another week with a score of 21.

Danica McKellar and Val Chmerkovskiy did a sexy samba after which judge Bruno Tonioli called Winnie Cooper a "sexy little jungle cat."

"Beautiful to look at but not quite tamed."

On Dancing With The Stars, being a double amputee might be seen as a disadvantage.

But Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy isn't letting it slow her down.

Amy Purdy and Derek Hough

Amy tells TMZ that she has different feet for different types of dances. Forget wood or cumbersome mechanics, Amy's special dancing feet include ankles that work on hydraulics.

Southern California Prosthetics has sent her several pairs to try, including ones she can wear with high heels! No matter what kind of feet she's rocking, her dancing is pretty amazing.

You can see one of her pairs of specially made feet in action when you watch Dancing With the Stars online. See Monday's performances right here:

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.
