'Dancing With the Stars' Finalists Address Biggest Surprises of the Season (Exclusive Video)

Before the  Dancing With the Stars  class of season 13 graduates on Tuesday, the remaining competitors are taking a look back on their exhausting three months working on the show. ABC's weekly call to the series' Twitter followers prompted one user to ask what's surprised them most about their time on the show.  Ricki Lake ,  Rob Kardashian  and  J.R. Martinez reacted accordingly. Some answers don't come as much of a surprise -- Rob is still reeling from making it all the way to week 10 -- while others offer some insight into the psyche of a celebrity reinvigorated by their time on the show.

Dancing with the Stars: Maks Roots for JR to Win, Will Never Speak to Karina Again

Dancing with the Stars is supposed to be about dancing, but this week it’s been about a whole lot more. The gossip fodder hasn’t let up for a nanosecond, and today is no exception. After being banned from the ABC talk show circuit following his and Hope Solo’s week 9 elimination, pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy finally got a chance to talk. And boy, did he. Maks tells the NY Post that he thinks JR Martinez should win the Season 13 Mirrorball trophy (which will be awarded on next week’s Dancing with the Stars finale show), and if he doesn’t "there is something fundamentally wrong with America." Whew. At long last Maks also addresses his current relationship with ex-fiancé Karina Smirnoff, JR’s pro partner. "I will never speak to that person again. And I never have. It has been years now." Double whew. What's it like on the set for these two? One can only imagine the tension in the skybox where all the contestants must hang close together two nights a week. If two people refuse to speak to each other, it can hardly go unnoticed. For his part, Maks admits it's been hard. For her part, Karina has maintained her silence.

'Dancing With the Stars': Hope Solo cuts and runs

Hope Solo and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskivy were eliminated from "Dancing With the Stars" in the semi-final round. But unlike other weeks, reporters didn't get to speak to the latest ousted couple. After one interview, Hope was so upset that she burst into tears and refused to do more. Maks didn't show up on the press line either.Zap2it was told that we would get a chance to speak to her by phone in the coming days. It's certainly understandable that she would be choked up after getting this far, but all of the other contestants managed to hold it together.There might be more to it though. Hope and Maks didn't get to do the traditional exit tour with stops at "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and the following morning's "Good Morning America." According to THR, it was the network's decision to instead promote finalists J.R. Martinez, Rob Kardashian and Ricki Lake and send them to the shows... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/11/dancing-with-the-stars-hope-solo-cuts-and-runs.html

'Dancing With the Stars': Top 3 set for the finals

"Dancing With the Stars" has set the Top 3 dancers for the finals happening next Monday, Nov. 21. Who made it through?The two couples said to be in jeopardy were J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff and Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. It shouldn't come as a huge surprise that Hope Solo was sent home. She tried hard and had a lot fun, but J.R. and Ricki Lake have been dominating the competition so far and when it came to the Final Four, Rob Kardashian really stepped up and Hope did not. They also made sure to say that the Bottom 2 were not necessarily J.R. and Hope (well, obviously HOpe was one of them). We wonder who it was, though. Probably not Ricki, but J.R. had an uncharacteristically off night after hurting his ankle and Rob had a night that was better than he usually does, so it really could go either way.

'Dancing With the Stars' Semifinals Week 9 Elimination (VIDEO)

The most bittersweet elimination of the season took place on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). To come one week shy of the finale is absolutely brutal, but each of the remaining contestants was all smiles. Simply making it this far is quite an achievement, and all four have proven themselves talented and worthy of their place. !!SPOILER ALERT!! Hope Solo struggled the most with the judges, but J.R. Martinez wasn't so far ahead of her in points that a surge of public support couldn't save her. Probably Rob Kardashian and Ricki Lake were feeling pretty safe, but we've seen bigger surprises in the past. //www.aoltv.com/2011/11/16/dancing-with-the-stars-week-9-elimination-video/

'Dancing With the Stars': Maks and Carrie Ann ... a feud?

Are dancer Maksim Chmerkovskivy and judge Carrie Ann Inaba having a feud? It certainly looks like it. Zap2it was on the scene at the taping of the semi-finals of "Dancing With the Stars" and we caught up with Maks and his partner Hope Solo. Maks had a bit to say about Carrie Ann's comment during the show.If you recall, a few weeks ago Maks had a bit of a disagreement with judge Len Goodman, telling him it might be time to retire. Carrie Ann yelled st Maks, telling him not to be disrespectful. Later, Maks said this was his show. It started a discussion about whether or not the judges were being too harsh and quickly escalated. Despite the make-up kiss with Len from Maks the next week, the tension still seemed to be there.At the semi-finals, Carrie Ann was saying that the couple's Argentine Tango lacked fluidity. In the middle of the sentence, she... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/11/post-3.html
