DWTS' Mad Maksim Tries To Walk Off Bad Press With Partner Hope Solo
Most of us know that much of the "reality show" world is fake. So when Maksim Chmerkovskiy went ballistic a few weeks ago on DWTS, some fans thought it was way out of line while others thought MadMaksim was rightfully defending Hope Solo. Was it a ruse to bolster ratings? Or was MadMaks sick of Chaz Bono getting a free ride for walking instead of dancing? One will never know. DWTS tries to be a mixture of political correctness with a dash of Playboy centerfolds (Brooke Burke, Kendra Wilkinson, Kelly Monaco), Porn Celeb Kim Kardashian, couple of contestants with drug addictions (Aaron Carter), battles with sobriety (David Arquette), a rape charge (Lawrence Taylor), money laundering (Tom Delay) and a host of other odd quirks that makes DWTS such a wonderful dysfunctional fun family. So MadMaksim's outburst was a ratings boom and a tabloid seller n'est-ce pas? The big question is how much hot water is Maksim actually in with the Executives of the show? Will he be back next season or will MadMaks take a much needed break? Here is MadMaks and Hope Solo spending some "good press" quality time together.
