HOLLYWOOD - The Russian born Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 28, who is known as "The Bad Boy of The Ballroom" on the hit reality show Dancing With The Stars says that he is really looking forward to working with his new celeb partner Brandy.
And he has already stated that yes, he will yell at her, but he promises that he will not hit her.
Brandy, who is 31, said that she has heard a lot of bad things about Maksim's bad ass attitude and all and she has stated off-the-record that she will not be putting up with any of his Russian bullsh*t.
The R&B hip hop singer said that if she starts hollering at her like he has done to past dance partners like Denise Richards or Debi Mazar she will get in his face and kick him between the legs so bad he will wish he was back on that damn tractor plowing the frozen ground of the Ukraine.
When Maksim was told of Brandy's remarks he grinned and said that she certainly talks a big game, but backing up her words is something else altogether.
He noted that if she gets smart with him, he will grab her by her ample lips and drag her all over the dance floor until she calls him daddy Maksim.
Brandy says that she is not the least bit intimidated by the Russian immigrant. She went on to say that she has gotten into it with the likes of Kanye West, Madonna, Toby Keith, and Glenn "The Piss Ant" Beck, so someone like Chermkovskiy does not scare her at all.
Maksim said that he hopes that the two do not get started off on the wrong foot. He smiled and said that he told Brandy that he actually likes three of her songs a lot.
Brandy asked him which songs were those and he answered, "Full Moon, 'Cause I Ain't Wearing No Undies," "Hey Bro, Doncha Be Callin' My Afro No Aphrodisiac Ya Hear," and "Who Is She 2 U Or U 2 Her or What Da Hell 2 Whoever Dude."
SIDENOTE: Larry King who knows both Brandy and Maksim very well said that they should get along quite well after they have their very first physical altercation. After that they'll be like a couple of BFFs.
