Derek Hough on DWTS Drama: I'm Not Really Interested in All That!

There was a lot of drama on Dancing With the Stars this week. Maksim lashed out on the judges when they criticized his dance with partner Hope Solo. He then continued to lash out on the morning shows saying that he will not apologize because he doesn’t believe he did anything wrong.

He also managed to pick on Derek Hough claiming that he always gets paired with good partners hence why he’s won three times. Hollyscoop spoke to Derek last night at the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles event honoring outstanding members of the Los Angeles community and he told us that he doesn’t care about what people say and all he is worried about is winning.

"I'm not really interested in all that. I focus on my dancing and focus on Ricki Lake and she is my point of focus and that's all I think about. I want her to have a great season," he told us.

Derek’s partner Ricki Lake also came to Derek’s defense telling Hollyscoop, “I am very protective of Derek and Derek, there's a reason he's won three times. He's a brilliant, brilliant talent and he's a great partner and I have so much respect for him. The longer we get into this competition and the harder it gets, the more sort of competitive it's been getting. I really respect him. He keeps me very grounded and focused and I'm just going to continue to do what I do and listen to what he says."

While Maksim was lashing out he also insisted that the judges aren’t fair which would obviously mean that the show is total B.S. Derek doesn’t think that is the case saying, "I think it's a show. I think it's a television show. I think that they play a role, they're part of a show and you can take it to heart or you can take it for what it is.”

Poor Maksim is coming out to look like the bad guy. He’s just probably upset that he’s never won the title despite being one of the best dancers on the show. Let’s be real, his body is really hot too!

Maksim was not the only one who was involved in drama this week on the show. Chaz Bono, who got the boot was insulted by the comments that judge Bruno made towards him referring him to a penguin, basketball, you get the point. He was insulted and offended by the name-calling. And his partner Lacey Schwimmer defended Maksim’s comments, which obviously didn’t sit well with the judges.

Let’s just say it was a very dramatic week on the show. Wonder if Maksim will get the boot this week. What do you guys think?
