Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley were great friends, and great partners on Dancing with the Stars. But the good times, it seems, are over – and it may have to do, in a roundabout way, with Jennifer Lopez.
Lopez is rumored to be dating Chmerkovskiy, though neither has confirmed the relationship. And she is also best friends with Leah Remini, the ex-Scientologist whom Alley – a Scientologist herself – recently called a "bigot" for remarks she made after leaving the church.
Thus, according to Chmerkovskiy, Alley believes he's getting to be friends with the wrong people.

The dance continues.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis brought their ballroom sizzle to Tao Downtown in New York on Thursday night, celebrating their Dancing with the Stars victory with dance pros Val Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani and Jenna Johnson.
With rumors swirling of a romance, the bad boy of dance and the Winter Olympics gold medal ice dancer commanded close scrutiny as they huddled in a booth and stood together in a skybox.

There's no denying that Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Olympic gold medal ice dancer Meryl Davis have chemistry on the dance floor. All season long the Dancing With the Stars duo wowed the show's judges and viewers with one stellar performance after another.
As in-step as they are on the dance floor, it's their off-the-dance-floor connection that has folks wondering, "Are they or aren't they?" Or, in the case of DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba, who declared after the couple's emotional and soulful freestyle routine Monday night, "I think the two of you should get married."
That seems to be the general consensus among fans and colleagues, who experienced a gentler, kinder and more playful Chmerkovskiy this season. And humbler.
