Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s Injury: How He Hurt His Leg

This season on Dancing With the Stars, pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy has been partnered with former Glee star Heather Morris. For weeks, the couple has received a lot of criticism for Morris having a background in dance as a former backup dancer for Beyonce and contestant on So You Think You Can Dance. But, that isn’t the pair’s biggest hurdle. Unfortunately, in just the second week of the show, Chmerkovskiy suffered a leg injury during rehearsals and it was captured on video. See the footage above.

Chmerkovskiy appears to pull something in his calf muscle while dancing with Morris and now he must sit out tonight’s episode, with dancer Alan Bersten subbing in for him. Unfortunately, People reports that Chmerkovskiy could be out for a couple weeks. This kind of injury to a major fan favorite like Chmerkovskiy could cost Morris a lot of votes from viewers. When Derek Hough was injured, his partner Nastia Liukin didn’t last much longer in the ballroom.

Chmerkovskiy’s injury reportedly occurred yesterday on Sunday. After the mishap, Chmerkovskiy posted the following message on Instagram:

Sorry I was MIA. Tune in to @dancingabc today and all will be explained. Tough show for #teamMaksimumHeat and @heatherrelizabethh would have to hold it down for both of us. Please show her your love and support while I work on getting my ass back to the ballroom. #DidNotSeeThisComing #WillBeBackBetterThanEver

Heather Morris also posted about the sad news online, writing:

#todaystheday Im too sad @maksimc wont be on stage with me but my new partner @alanbersten and I are gonna make him proud Dont forget to vote!

As for Chmerkovskiy’s stand-in Alan Bersten, he appears to be very close to Maks and his brother Val. Valentin Chmerkovskiy is dancing with Fifth Harmony group member Normani Kordei on the show this season and he recently celebrated his birthday. Bersten posted some sweet words to Val on Instagram, gushing:

Happy birthday @iamvalc!! I’m proud to call you family. You inspire me to be the best I can be everyday. You show me that hard work and determination really does pay off! Hope all your wishes come true, and continue striving for greatness!

Heather Morris’ scheduled routine for tonight’s performance is the Jive to “Grown” by Little Mix.

Bonner Bolton’s Infamous ‘Crotch Grab’ Video On ‘Dancing With the Stars’

Last week was the premiere of season 24 for Dancing With the Stars and pro dancer Sharna Burgess is paired with bull rider Bonner Bolton. The judges and fellow cast members gushed over the duo’s ballroom chemistry and viewers blew up Twitter with speculation about the pair’s relationship. When Burgess and Bolton were hanging out on set, a slip of the hand on national television sent viewers into a social media frenzy. Bolton was accused of trying to grab Burgess’ crotch.

All week, the couple has had to defend themselves over the “grab” with Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, TMZ, and other media outlets. When speaking with TMZ, Burgess said the situation was blown completely out of proportion.

When speaking with Extra TV, Bolton explained what happened on his end, saying:

I was watching Peta [Murgatroyd] and Nick [Viall] up there and I really had no idea. I knew it was her that bumped into me and I put my arm around her and I was turned to watch the TV screen and I felt her push my hand away and honestly had no idea.

Burgess then added:

You can see when I move his hand that he had no idea where it was. He has no reaction and it was such an innocent mistake that was truly blown so far out of proportion. I didn’t think anything of it. I also didn’t think the cameras were right on us at that point either until I saw my Twitter feed blow up … He was mortified.

After Bolton’s mistake started gaining the attention of fans, Burgess took to Twitter to defend her partner, basically saying that anyone who thought the move was intentional is stupid.

William Shatner Wants to Take Nick Viall Down On ‘Dancing With the Stars’

(ABC/Mitch Haaseth)

When William Shatner let Twitter know that he was going to campaign against Nick Viall in hopes of getting Viall off of Dancing With the Stars, viewers were surprised, confused and very curious. Shatner posted several tweets online about his disdain for Viall and how he hopes that no one votes for the former Bachelor star on DWTS. When Viall heard this news, he expressed his feelings to EXTRA, saying:

It was heartbreaking because I am his biggest fan. Who doesn’t like Captain Kirk? Also a big T.J. Hooker fan — that’s some of his best work. It’s heartbreaking, to be honest. The show must go on. We’re gonna do our best, and it’s up to William to come around or not … Maybe we will have a cup of coffee one day, we will hash out our differences.

Viall’s pro partner Peta Murgatroyd then chimed in, saying that she was going to make Shatner love Viall by the end of the season. And, Viall says that Shatner has an open invitation to come to the show.

So, why does Shatner want Viall to be off the show? Apparently, he was not a fan of some of Viall’s actions when he was on The Bachelorette. For example, many felt negatively about Viall when he revealed on national television that he had sex with star Andi Dorfman during their overnight date.

After all the Twitter drama, Shatner appeared send a peace offering Viall’s way, tweeting this message:

Hey @viallnicholas28 Will you accept this [peace rose emoji]? As a Dad w/ daughters I’m not happy w/ what you’ve done in the past Maybe you’ve matured now?

In addition to the above message, he posted the below tweet.

Now check out all of Shatner’s tweets about Nick Viall when he first ignited the fire online.

Will Chris Kattan & Witney Carson Be Eliminated On ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Tonight?

(Instagram)


UPDATE: Chris Kattan did indeed get sent home tonight.


Last week on Dancing With the Stars, the new celebrity cast performed their first dances of the season with their designated pro partners. For season 24, there are a ton of great dancers among the contestants, which seemed to make it more difficult for those who aren’t as light on their feet. Chris Kattan did an impression of his former A Night at the Roxbury character for his debut performance and some of the judges were confused about his “bad dancing” routine. While Kattan didn’t pull off some of the steps, his incorporating his former character’s signature bad dancing seemed to work against him. The judges had some harsh comments for the comedian, who appeared a bit hurt by their words. In the end, Kattan and his pro partner Witney Carson received the lowest score of the night, with a 17 out of 40.

See Kattan’s premiere performance below.

So, unless Witney Carson and Chris Kattan earned a ton of votes, there’s a very good chance they will be the first couple eliminated this season.

Scheana Marie Shay Divorce Drama & Boyfriend Robert Valletta

Scheana Marie Shay and her estranged husband Mike Shay reveal this season on Vanderpump Rules that their marriage is over. The couple has only been married about two years and they tied the knot on the show. The couple battled through Mike Shay’s struggles with drinking and pills, but they were not able to overcome other obstacles. When the couple split, Mike Shay’s sobriety was questioned, so he took to Instagram to give his response to the rumors, saying:

I am not missing. I am sober. I am Happy!!! Don’t believe everything you read. I love my wife and will always love my wife. Whatever is going on between us will stay between us! I love my family and my family loves me and a lot of things have been said out is protection and anger by many people. I just ready for the next chapter in my life!

The couple’s divorce was filed on November 9, 2016 and they released a joint statement when the news broke. Their statement read:

While we have made the difficult decision to move forward separately, our story will continue on through the love and mutual respect that we have cultivated throughout our 15-year friendship. Much of the recent speculation and reporting on our relationship has been misguided, and we have come to an amicable decision on all matters. We might have failed at our marriage, but we are committed to succeeding as friends and will continue to support each other’s personal happiness and professional success.

Currently, Scheana is dating a man named Robert Valletta and you can check him out in the below photo.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Valletta is in the entertainment industry and his sister is model and actress Amber Valletta. Valletta and Scheana Shay reportedly began dating in February 2017.

Recently, Shay and Valletta attended the premiere of the new Power Rangers movie with Vanderpump Rules co-stars Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval and they all posed together on the red carpet.

Several of Shay’s VP co-stars have dished to In Touch Weekly about what they think of their friend’s new man Valletta. Reality star Kristen Doute said she’s actually known Valletta for a while, explaining:

I’ve known him for a few years. I love him, I think he’s a really great guy. She’s happy.

Shay’s BFF Ariana Madix’s brother Jeremy also dished on Shay’s new relationship, saying:

She’s good and I’m happy for her. If he can do that for her, then he’s alright in my eyes. He seems nice. I guess the most important thing is after she and Mike had their little thing, she was extremely upset for a while. I felt really bad for her. She’s like a sister to me, so it’s just good to see her happy again and smiling again and living life instead of being at home sad and depressed.
