Monday morning on Good Morning America it was revealed that Denise Richards would be partnered with hottie Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The trampy reality tv starlet better watch out though, because Maksim is engaged to fellow Dancing with the Stars professional Karina Smirnoff. Here are some highlights from an interview he did with TV Guide about the upcoming eighth season:
TVGuide.com: Did you get to indulge in any pet projects during your time off?
Chmerkovskiy: I didn’t have time off. I choreographed the tour, which went to 38 cities, and I was also the dance captain in charge of all the injuries and replacing people… . It was a crazy experience, and a lot of work. But it’s fine. I’m 29; I’ll relax when I’m 50.
TVGuide.com: How excited are you to be paired with Denise?
Chmerkovskiy: Very. Very. Things are happening up here [in my head], as to what we’re going to do for our first dance… . I’m picking up on all the things she’s been saying about her flexibility and the Pilates. Most of the things that are difficult for the celebrities are moving their legs and arms in different directions at the same time, to the music.
TVGuide.com: Some are speculating that dancing as a team could be tough on Julianne Hough and Chuck Wicks, her country singer-boyfriend. But I think if DWTS has shown us anything, it’s that it cultivates romance. They could come out of this stronger.
Chmerkovskiy: I don’t want to start the season with a usual Maks rant, so I’m going to plead the fifth on that pairing!
My guess is that the other competitors don’t feel it fair that Chuck and Julianne get to work together, since they probably spend a LOT more time in each others company that the other pairings. Oh well, it could work against them, too.
