    Didn't Kym win with both Donny Osmond and Hines Ward, and deservedly so? I love both Kym and Cheryl, both of whom won twice. Cheryl should have won a third time with Gilles.

    Or am I misunderstanding what you wrote, karalott, about the female winners?

    I was referring to the Design A Dance, which Derek has won every time (except last season)

    Women's World Cup star Hope Solo exits 'DWTS' leaving her partner rooting for his ex

    Women's World Cup star Hope Solo exits 'DWTS' leaving her partner rooting for his ex

    3:30 PM, November 16, 2011 ι By New York Post

    LOS ANGELES -- Bad-boy hoofer Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his partner, soccer star Hope Solo, got the hook Tuesday night on “Dancing with the Stars” after a week of open warfare with the show’s judges.

    And now that he has been eliminated, Chmerkovskiy says he’s got yet another problem.

    The hot-tempered dancer wants to see Iraq war veteran and soap actor J.R. Martinez take home the mirror-ball trophy, which means also rooting for Martinez’s dance partner -- Chmerkovskiy's ex-fiancee, Karina Smirnoff.

    Despite working together on the same show, the rugged Ukranian Chmerkovskiy told the New York Post that the couple have not spoken in the two years since their relationship blew up.

    “If J.R. doesn’t win, there is something fundamentally wrong with America,” Chmerkovskiy said.

    “I think J.R. deserves it,” he added. “It is his right to walk into ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and walk away with the trophy. But on top of all of that, he is a great dancer.”

    Martinez suffered burns over 40 percent of his body while serving in the US Army in 2003. He was later cast on “All My Children” as a returning vet.

    “You have to embrace the fact that after 13 seasons, it hasn’t always been a dance competition,” Chmerkovskiy said. “Therefore, J.R. needs to win this thing.”

    Chmerkovskiy, 31, admitted that there is plenty of “bad blood” between him and Smirnoff, to whom he proposed on New Year’s Day 2009. The couple split up nine months later because they couldn’t agree on whether to have children, according to reports.

    “I will never speak to that person again,” he said of Smirnoff, 33. “And I never have. It has been years now. But I am not bitter.”

    Working side by side on a weekly TV series is “not easy,” Chmerkovskiy admitted. “But I just go about my business and do my thing. It is very hard.”

    Meanwhile, Chmerkovskiy and Solo took issue with their scores all season -- leading to open and public feuds with the judges.

    In October, Chmerkovskiy declared that “Dancing with the Stars” was “his show” after earning a low score and suggested that “maybe it’s time” for judge Len Goodman to step down.

    On Monday, he told reporters, “I think [judge] Carrie Ann [Inaba] has an issue [with us]. I don’t know what it is, but I would love to know so we can address it.”

    Solo added, “[The judges] have wanted to get us off since day one.”
    So I guess if Karina was reaching for someone's hand, it wasn't Maks's, though he looked down at that moment. Maybe she did grab it by accident I feel for Maks as he obviously is still hurt; and it's a shame that 15+ years of friendship was over because of a relationship that barely lasted a year. But, for those that were hoping he'd have a fit at Karina winning, at least he's big about it and rooting for J.R. They seem pretty friendly.

    Re: DWTS Media Thread

    Didn't see this posted anywhere - a tweet from Maks

    Would never disrespect fans by not doing press! Was told not to. And would have loved to be on Kimmel or GMA! Y'all know I like speaking



    If Maks isn't on next season I won't be there either - I am done with this phony baloney crap - he was the only one to stand up for what everyone else knows - the judges have their favorites and no amount of fan voting will change the outcome that they want

    From a People February 2009 article after they announced their engagement:
    The bottom line is, I had a crush on Karina for years," says Maks.
    As they ascended the ranks of the pro dance world, racking up national titles, they competed against each other but never teamed up professionally or romantically. Says Karina: "I was giving him time to grow up." Laments Maks: "I was
    always little 'Maksusha'to her. I was a boy-I wasn't a man-for Karina."
    Possibly his feelings for her were stronger than her feelings for him? It's too bad.

    What's funny is that she said that Mario was the best relationship she ever had-despite Mario cheating on her and Karina crying to the press over how upset she was. And, she made that comment despite being with her current beau. Wouldn't the person you're with be the best relationship you've ever had? I think Maks was a rebound for her, and she loved the publicity and opporunities she got. That's when Karina seemed to move up in status on the show. Maybe she's finally found her one in her current finace; considering they pushed their wedding back, I'd be surprised if they ever get married, or if they stay together. Maybe she's waiting to see what kind of publicity she can get. I think Maks is better off. He's going to make some girl very happy one day, and I have no doubt he'll be an amazing dad. Given all I've read and heard about Hope, I have wonder if his sour attitude was related more to having to work with her (and not very pleasantly). I think they were just too much alike to deal with each other. I truly hope Maks isn't gone for good. He made valid points, even if he went about it the wrong way. The show won't be the same without him.
