Monday night, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his partner Hope Solo seemed to really turn things around on DWTS. While they have had plenty of tension and drama surrounding them the past few weeks, they worked hard to start fresh Monday night and it most definitely showed. After the show they talked to Access Hollywood about the evening, and they were all smiles.
Hope shared that she feels they have always had a charismatic and respectful relationship, but they realized not everybody was seeing it. They made a renewed effort to share their true relationship with their fans and it showed. Hope feels that the editing of their rehearsal packages make it seem like they never got along, though that wasn’t the full picture. Maksim Chmerkovskiy admitted that the tension had been there, they are very intense, but there is good stuff there too. They say that they’ve always understood one another, but they needed to make some adjustments so their fans see the fun they have together too.
Maks was also asked about the photo he tweeted showing himself with Derek mocking their “hate” for one another. Maks said once again that there is no issue between them and they understand that it’s all just competition. Fans loved seeing Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Hope Solo having fun, relaxed and enjoying the competition this week on DWTS, as the past couple of weeks were a bit rough. Will they get the fan’s votes to move them on to next week’s semi-finals? Tune in Tuesday night to Dancing With the Stars to find out who heads home.
