Brandy’s Dancing with the Stars elimination was quite simply the most shocking moment of the season. Did her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s confrontation with judge Carrie Ann Inaba last week cost her? It’s certainly possible and was one of the first things that popped into my head after I stopped waving my fist at the television in anger.
Last week Maks and Carrie Ann got into it after Carrie Ann criticized Maks’ choreography. Maks said the judges did not appreciate all the work the pros put in, and Brandy finally told him to calm down as they were walking back to get their scores. The next night, Carrie Ann tried to bury the hatchet and Maks agreed, only to end up getting angry again.
He may have had a point, but it was rude and a distraction from the competition. Maks has a temper that he needs to control, though I do love how protective he was of his partner, the mom of one.
Did Maks’ little temper tantrum cost Brandy Norwood some votes? We may never know, but I remain in official protest that she was booted over Bristol.
