Dancing With the Stars news divulges that pro dancer and alum Maksim Chmerkovskiy did double duty recently when he appeared on The Masked Dancer. He was in the sloth costume and he came in second place behind US Olympian gymnast Gabby Douglas.
After his success and popularity on the show many fans are wondering if Maks will come back to Dancing With The Stars. In order to clear up the speculation, he recently sat down with HollywoodLife to clear up the confusion and shed some insights on his life is at the moment.
Dancing With the Stars News: Is Maksim Done With DWTS?
“I’m a professional father, and I want to be that forever,” he told the publication. “Having said that, Dancing with the Stars and Maks, I think that we parted ways a long time ago. I think this show is going through a lot and has a lot to figure out to get back to what it was without having to deal with Maks. That’s why I’m not thinking about it, and I think that it also leads me to be free to do other things.”
It sounds like Maks has strong opinions on the state of DWTS and understands that his strong personality might muddy the waters!
He acknowledged that he loves dancing, but said the show is stressful day and at the moment he is living his best life.

He went on to say, “I’m a different man. I’m a changed person. If that new Maks is of value to the show in the form that I want to be a part of it, great. But I’m so excited about all the other opportunities and projects that I have going on. I don’t think about that show in particular.”
Reading between the lines, gracious Maks is saying life is on Cloud Nine at this time but if TPYB think he has a role to play on DWTS he’s going to listen.
