I don't think Melissa has EVER been "belittled" by the judges. So the statement about her being belittled because of Maks is moot. If one believes rumors, it's plausible that CarrieAnn hates Maks...I don't recall her ever complimenting him. But CA transferring her hate to Melissa? Melissa's performance has not been good enough to earn any compliments. And what the heck is Maks doing, flinging Melissa around like that on the dance floor, when surely he's watched the videos and seen how crappy it looked...?
