Maksim Chmerkovskiy Explains Fall, Wants No Attention


The 'Dancing with the Stars' pro regrets the fact that his fall during live show has taken the attention away from Hines Ward and Petra Nemcova who did well that week.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy talks lengthily about his embarrassing moment on "Dancing with the Stars", saying he's bruised but not battered. The professional dancer fell on Tuesday, April 5's Rumba but quickly got up to finish the dance and saved Kirstie Alley from potential elimination.

"I have to go find my ego and put it back together," he told Access Hollywood, adding "It's not about pain, forget the pain, I'm not being a hero or anything. ...I teach my couples, my kids, my students - it's not about being perfect, it's about not showing your imperfections and this just pisses me off because you've seen me mess up, you've seen me mess up with my partners, you just couldn't notice. But today, there was nothing I could do to camouflage that [and] it pissed me off the most."

After the dance, he explained the fall as "muscle contusion" which is more like "a Charlie horse". But Maks insisted that he would be fine for the next dance. "Never happened to me and [I hope it] never happens again 'cause it's a little bruised, but I'll be fine," he said.

In fact, he was more worried about all the attention that he absorbed. "My philosophy is I want to be in the background. I'm the backbone but I want to be in the shadows," he said. "This being the most talked-about moment kind of takes away from Hines [Ward] and from Petra [Nemcova] doing their phenomenal routines and even from Kirstie, obviously, so that's why I feel a little awkward with this whole attention on me."

Kirstie herself was feeling partly-guilty, tweeting, "Maks is too humble.. we all know it takes TWO to Tango..on our feet or on our asses...it takes TWO ..I will do better from now on...xoxo"
