    Hmm .Well I guess I dont see it that way.Derek is way way better than Maks, including his temperament , and the way he treats his partner.I hope you dont mind I love Derek

    Insta-dance for everyone: jive. They either really want to get rid of Nancy, or telling everyone she was in the bottom 2 is going to spare her no matter how bad her encore is next week. Tristan will probably need to do more than work her like a mule.
    They took the dance stars typically have the most problems with and made it the insta-dance? That's just plain idiotic. Most of the time, even with a week to practice, nobody has that great a jive. Giving them, what, a half an hour at most is surely not going to improve it.

    I hope this time Len doesn't go after J.R./K for producing a Lindy instead of a jive (though I'm pretty sure Karina won't make that mistake twice).

    I'm not surprised, as it'll be difficult for Nancy, and likely difficult for Hope and Rob. If I were Karina, I'd say screw the 3 stooges and do whatever I want. Others get away with it, why not her?

    Interesting article from US Magazine.

    It's war behind the scenes at Dancing With the Stars!

    Though DWTS fans may have dismissed Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Derek Hough's testy public back-and-forth as simply a heated rivalry, the new issue of Us Weekly (out Friday) reveals what's really at the root of their bad blood.

    "They hate each other," a DWTS insider tells Us of Chmerkovskiy, 31, and Hough, 26, who had it out after Chmerkovskiy's on-air spat with DWTS judge Len Goodman. (When the veteran judge slammed his and Hope Solo's routine, Chmerkovskiy lashed out and urged the crusty Brit to retire and called the ABC series "my show.")

    "I had a laugh about that [comment]," three-time winner Hough told Us later. Referring to a nameplate on set that lists past champs (Chmerkovskiy is not one of them), Hough said, "I was looking at the plaque upstairs and…well, never mind."

    Hough's recent snide retort is just the latest in the pros' lengthy feud.

    "The professional dance community is really small. The dancers have known one another their entire lives," says a source close to the show. "Now that the group is famous, it's added a whole other level of rivalry and competitiveness."

    Adding fuel to the fire between the men? Hough's sister, fellow dancer Julianne, who briefly dated Chmerkovskiy.

    "Julianne told Maks she didn't want to have a serious relationship," says a source close to the show. Soon after, the Footloose star started seeing Ryan Seacrest -- and a bitter Chmerkovskiy, says the source, retaliated by "planting false rumors that Julianne was cheating on Ryan with Maks."

    The DWTS insider counters that Chmerkovskiy is no rumormonger and, in fact, Hough isn't the nice guy he seems.

    "Derek is dating Lauren Conrad for publicity," says the insider of his romance with the Hills star. "He is focused on becoming a huge star like Julianne."

    =============================

    I don't know about the plaque on the wall, but if we were going to have a vote as to who looks better shirtless in leather pants, I can guarantee you that Maks would get MY vote over Derek ANY day.

    You can tell when it's been a slow season where the drama and backstage stories are concerned. If Derek really made that comment...they say Maks has the biggest ego? Derek made a joke last season about Maks being able to win now that he wasn't there. But I can't see him going that far. What a coincidence that this would come up a week after the blow up with Len and an alleged feud between Maks and Derek that never was brought up before. I wonder if the pros get a laugh out of reading this type of stuff. And when did Julianne and Maks ever date? If she wasn't involved with someone, then he was. Last week, Star reported Maks was hated behind the scenes by everyone. The week before, Star said it was Derek and Julianne who were hated behind the scenes.

    A lot of these rumors are probably exaggerated or just plain made-up, but I totally believe that Derek and Maks are over each other. But it's probably something that's been slowly brewing for years that finally came to a boil this season.

    I also believe that Derek is dating famous women only for the publicity, but for my own selfish reasons...

    I have a feeling you're right on that count! Where there's smoke, there's fire and those rumors have been around for years.

    Re: DWTS Media Thread

    If Derek is dating Lauren Conrad for publicity, than he better aim higher. I had to look up who she was. As for he and Maks and Julianne and all the stuff being said I feel that most of the pros probably are not happy with the Houghs. They are asked for by most of the stars that come on, they are over praised by the judges, the show has them in every sequence possible, and I am sick of them and I do not even know them.

    I am probably the only one, but I see nothing special looks wise about Derek. He is too boylike for me. I think Tristan, Maks, and even Val are so much more hot than Derek. I also can feel the anguish that Karina, Anna, Tony, and Maks obviously feel for never having won and working so hard.

    Huge star? What? Where? Wouldn't a huge star be someone that people have heard of?
