HOLLYWOOD - Word out of Tinsel Town is that Maksim Chmerkovskiy, a native of the Ukraine, and one of the most controversial members of Dancing With The Stars has agreed to star in his very own situation-comedy.
The 31-year-old Ukrainian dancer who this past season was partnered with United States soccer star Hope Solo has agreed to appear on the show after he heard that the highly volatile Kathy Griffin would be cast as his television wife.
Maksim spoke with Carolina Chipotle of Bedroom Pillow Talk and said that he is really looking forward to working together with the "Red Cougar," whom he says he has always admired for being the strongly opinionated bitch that she is.
When asked if he had ever met her, the DWTS dancer smiled and said that he did once at Bruno Tonioli's Tribute To Sir Elton John Surprise Party last Valentine's Day which took place at Simon Cowell's Hollywood Hills mansion, Casa La T-Shirt.
Chmerkovskiy, which is pronounced exactly the way that it looks CHART-COF-FEE-SIL-LY, remarked that he and Griffin talked for about four minutes.
He noted that the two did manage to get into seven arguments including a heated discussion on Griffin's insistence that her thousands of freckles give her courage, stamina, and a higher IQ than most non-red headed people.
In the TV sit-com Maks will star as Vladimir Vodkachev a struggling dance instructor who meets Griffin's character Cuddles Ticklewood at a Fiery Tongue of The Dragon Chinese Restaurant.
Ticklewood, 51, is a retired lap dancer who loves going to comedy clubs on open mic nights and spewing forth her hate-filled attacks on everyone and everything ranging from Piers Morgan and Arizona to Madonna and those stupid, irritating insurance company "Mayhem" commercials.
Vladimir and Cuddles begin a whirlwind romance. They travel to South Dakota to see Mount Rushmore, and to Cleveland to see Lake Erie, and even down to Florida's Okefenokee Swamp to see the infamous Swanee River which was made famous by the 70s rock and roll band Three Dog Night.
The May-December couple soon learn that they have so much in common; their love for vodka, their love for tequila, their love for Hostess Twinkies, their love for leg lifts, and their love for counting the freckles on Tinklewood's crotch region.
The show will also star Clay Aiken and Lance Bass as the couple's gay next door neighbors Toby and Cody Twitflocker.
FOOTNOTE: Carolina Chipotle stated that at press time the producers of the show are in the process of casting Bruno Tonioli of Dancing With The Stars who will portray Kathy Griffin's meddling father Carlo "The Pepperoni" Pintopellini.
