Maksim and Erin Update

Days after the shocking elimination of Audrina Patrdige on Dancing With The Stars, some of her dancing competitors are still voicing their surprise over her departure.

In a new interview with Access Hollywood, singer Brandy reveals she doesn’t think Audrina should have been sent home.

“I was very shocked,” said Brandy. “I don’t think she deserved to go home, I think America got it wrong with Audrina.”

Maksim also tweeted the following days ago – “WOW America! You got that one wrong! So sad for @TonyDovolani and @AudrinaPatridge . I know how much Tony loved to work with her! Sorry Bro.”

On tonight’s all new episode of DWTS, the show will be celebrating it’s 200th episode with a two night event. According to a press release, DWTS will be bringing back 50 former contestants, with some of them returning to serve as guest judges. Taylor Swift will also be performing on tomorrow’s results show.

And finally, Life&Style is reporting that the resident DWTS hottie Maksim Chmerkovskiy has gotten himself a new girlfriend! The lucky lady is Joni Kilmurry, a 28-year-old former model turned stylist. According to the mag, the new couple finally stepped out together at a recent event.

This news comes just over a year after Maksim, 30, and his former fiance Karina Smirnoff ended their engagement.  And though Maksim and his former dance partner Erin Andrews deny they ever dated, sources say the two briefly gave things a shot following their season on the show.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS STORY AND TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF DWTS?

Dancing With The Starsresident hottie Maksim Chmerkovskiy is speaking out about the current season of the show in a new interview with E! Online.

In the interview, Maksim touches on the topic of his ex-girlfriend former dancing partner Erin Andrews. Though Maksim refuses to reveal what exactly went down with Erin, it was reported weeks ago that the two briefly dated before eventually ending their relationship after a short period. Maksim also discusses his current dance partner, Brandy and why he is impressed with Bristol Palin.

Excerpts from Maksim’s interview below -

How happy are you about last night’s show? You came in second with 23 points.
Very happy! I’ve been always telling Brandy that you just have to get the first show out of the way. I think she did an amazing job for the first time, for the nerves, and anxiety and all that stuff. I really enjoyed our dance.

What’s up for you and Brandy next week?
We’re doing the jive. We’re still testing the waters out with Brandy to see what she’s comfortable with, what she’s going to be better at…She’s a very versatile person with so many looks. She can just smile and look adorable and innocent and all that, but she has a hot and sassy side as well.

Were you surprised at how well Bristol did?
Bristol did great! I think Bristol has a lot to prove and she certainly tries her best. She shouldn’t put pressure on herself. If there’s no pressure, there are no expectations and she can just walk out and do her thing. I applaud her bravery for even being on the show.

Will we ever see you and Erin dance again on the show?
I came back to dance with Mel for our 100th show. You never know, maybe they’ll bring us back. I would love to dance with Erin again for sure if she would like to but at the moment right now, this very second, my mind is on what Brandy and I are going to be doing next week.

Why is everyone so obsessed with you and Erin and trying to figure out what was going on between the two of you?
I think we showed partnership beyond just the show. I’ve apologized to our fans because romance or not, they will probably never know because I’m a private person. I put out as much as I can on Twitter, my website, and my YouTube channel, but just to an extent. What Erin and I had is between me and Erin.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Erin Andrews

Though they never discussed their romantic relationship in public, numerous media outlets confirmed ESPN reporter Erin Andrews and dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy began dating after being paired up on Dancing With The Stars.

It however seems the couple, pictured above on July 14th at the 2010 ESPY awards show, might be dunzo. A new report by the sports blog TerezOwens.com says the two fan favorites are currently broken up on a break.

According to the site, Erin and Maks “were dating during the show, but felt they would give it a real shot once all the hoopla subsided and the show ended..They gave it a whirl and things were going very well..like most couples they got into fights from time to time..but one fight in particular changed the relationship forever.”

The reported big blowout occurred after the couple attended the ESPY awards together. A source tells the site, “Erin and Maks have decided to take a break for now and see if they can patch things up down the road..The romance did fizzle a little bit after the show ended and the promotional tours stopped..They weren’t forced to spend time together and it became more of a distraction to be fully committed..”

The two reportedly remain close friends but with Erin, 32, being very busy with work (she was promoted at ESPN and is now a contributor for GMA) and Maksim, 30, working more than ever, things have cooled off between the two.

Another telling sign? The pair used to tweet to each other on twitter constantly, but only one twitter exchange since their reported July 14 blow up.

Maks tweeted to Erin on July 26th – “Good luck tomorrow @ErinAndrews……..”

Erin replied the next day – “thx maks.”

The good luck tweet was regarding Erin’s visit to Capital Hill, as she went to speak with lawmakers, wanting tougher laws implemented for stalking.

As we have previously reported, the new cast of DWTS will be announced Aug 30 on ABC’s The Bachelor Pad. Teresa Giudice, The Situation, and Ali Fedotowsky are a few rumored to be joining the show.

UPDATE – Erin confirms in a new interview with Gainesville magazine , done after the ESPY awards, that she isn’t dating anyone.
