Maksim Chmerkovskiy Speaks on All My Children Appearance, Pole Dancing

at . Comments

When Maksim Chmerkovskiy guest stars on All My Children on February 26, he'll be teaching a few character how to pole dance.

So, the former Dancing with the Stars professional must know a thing or two about that fine art, right? Right?!?

"When I got to [All My Children] they were shocked that I've never done pole-dancing before —like, why would I? — but I figured it out and tried to keep it clean," Chmerkovskiy told TV Guide.

The dancing pro might be excited about this opportunity, but he insists he has no interest in acting, having nixed most other non-dancing offers.

"People have wanted to put me in a cowboy hat and make me the next Nashville Star," he said. "Trust me, that's not where my talent is. I'm like a peacock — beautiful but you don't want to hear it sing."

Fair enough. But what was Maxsim's impression of All My Children?

"It's really hard work but, to be honest, soaps are a bit cheesy," Chmerkovskiy said. "All the girls were telling me about their crazy storylines. One of them had been in a coma three times. Another one used to be a ghost."

Rough stuff, indeed.

One of those women Chmerkovskiy helps on the episode is Rebecca Budig (Greenlee), who had to reintroduce herself to Chmerkovskiy when he came to the show's studio.

"Maks is really sweet but he didn't remember me, even though I only met him like a gazillion times when I went to watch Cameron Mathison [AMC's Ryan] do Dancing with the Stars," says Budig. "Apparently the 'real' Greenlee isn't that memorable!"
