Maksim Chmerkovskiy Criticizes Marie Osmond, Routine

at . Comments

Maksim Chmerkovskiy continues to hold nothing back when it comes to his Dancing with the Stars competition; or, to be specific, when it comes to Marie Osmond.

The handsome professional was critical of her selection to act as a "living doll" during the freestyle performance on last night's show.

"I guess she came out trying to do something... Whatever it is, I guess it's between her and [Jonathan Roberts}. But nobody else knows what it is," Dancing professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy told OK! Weekly after the broadcast.

A Living Doll

Maks even said he thought the entire routine was meant as nothing more than an advertisement for Marie's line of dolls.

"I guess it was a big doll company promotion," Chmerkovskiy added.

Moreover, Melanie Brown's partner didn't shy away from similar, negative comments he made last week regarding Osmond.

"I just said what everybody else was thinking," Chmerkovskiy said. "To add to that, Marie is one of those people you can't find any flaws with. I have nothing but the utmost respect for her. God knows this woman went through a lot this season. But, having said that, this is a dance show."

It's hard to argue with any of these points, isn't it?

He should have been born under the sign of SCORPIO. We have strong opinions and even stronger beliefs, and will let you know it. I totally agree with him. Aloha!


Maks TOTALLY said what everyone was thinking! That doll skit was ridiculous and she looked like an idiot.


ok, maks really shouldn't have said that. it wasn't nice and it was kind of sour grapes. nobody else on the competition says all those negative things about other contestants, so maksim shouldn't either. but don't worry, maks, i still love you, and i actually agree with you. marie osmond only stayed on the show for so long because she was an osmond and she was popular. when i think of how early sabrina got voted off...


How can you use the term "sour grapes" and Mel together? Marie's remarks after the judges' comments each week escalated from funny good humor to bratty and annoying! It was a DANCE contest for Pete's sake and Marie should've been out before Sabrina, Jane, Cameron and Jenny! As for Maksim's scruffy GOOD looks...Ooh, la, la, baby! Thanks, Maks, for saying what MANY of us DANCE fans were thinking!


Maksim as I see him has gotten a little big for his britches... yes he can dance (he knows it) but his scruffy looks sorta turn you off ... hopefully if he picked up again he will clean up and stop hamming for the camera. His partner this year did great but she to has alittle bit of sour grapes when she is advised by judges. She came along way but her comment about other dancers were not alway good.... sorry but you need attitude adjustment .


I totally agree! Marie should be judged on dancing! This is a dance competition, not the theater! I feel bad for other contestants who were voted off and Marie stayed. Yes, it is horrible what she went thru during the show, but you can't let sympathy get in the way of voting for the Best!
