“Extra” caught up with “Dancing with the Stars” pro Maks Chmerkovskiy, his brother Val, and girlfriend Peta Murgatroyd at the NYC Jingle Ball on Friday.
Maks told “Extra” he agrees with fellow pro dancer Karina Smirnoff that “DWTS” is no place for a contestant like Honey Boo Boo or her mother, June.
He explained, “We also have a lot of reports that we need bigger stars, and I concur. I think that some, not all, of our stars have been of questionable backgrounds. But I don’t see Honey Boo Boo or any of her relatives having earned the right because I think it’s an honor to be on the show.”
