HOLLYWOOD - Last year professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy exploded 'on-the-air' at English judge Len Goodman during one of the Dancing With The Stars live shows.
Chmerkovskiy, who is known as "The Bad Boy of The Ballroom" became extremely upset when Goodman gave him a low score and embarrassed the Ukrainian native by telling him in front of millions of viewers that he does not like to see him dancing without his shirt and with that ever present smirk on his face.
Goodman added that he does not go for all of the new fangled, razzle dazzle, young style of dancing that Maksim has injected into the traditional rumbas, sambas, mambos, Viennese waltzes, and paso dobles.
Maks looked right at the pale as hell old geezer and told him that he needs to retire because he has about as much business being a modern day dancing judge as 603-pound Gabourey Sidibe has of being a spokesperson for diet drinks.
And this year two of Chmerkovskiy's fellow shirtless dancer's Derek "The Dancing Dude" Hough and Mark "The Tattoo Kid" Ballas are agreeing with the "Mad Russian" as DWTS Host Tom Bergeron affectionately calls him during commercial breaks.
Hough is especially angry since he and his partner Maria "Giggles" Menounos recently performed a fantastic dance routine and they were given well-earned scores of "10" by Carrie Ann "The Filipino Princess" Inaba and Bruno "The Gaytalian" Tonioli.
"Grumpy" Goodman meanwhile gave the vibrant pair an "8" which caused the studio audience to erupt in a thunderous hiss of boos and angry catcalls.
In fact, co-host Brooke "Pretzel Legs" Burke-Charvet revealed that three security guards had to surround Goodman after people in the audience started throwing hot dogs, peanuts, Cracker Jacks, and French fries at the man who has been nicknamed Len "The Hen" by Vice-President Joe Biden.
According to Pico de Gallo with Tittle Tattle Tonight, Chmerkovskiy, Hough, and Ballas have all met with the shows producer, the lovely Bernadette Penderlicki and have informed her that if she does not fire Goodman after this season that all three will quit the show.
