'DWTS' Maks: 'Brandy Treats Me Like a Stubborn Baby'

The season premiere of "Dancing with the Stars" is Sept. 20th, and rehearsals are underway, but who's taking charge, the instructor or the star?

"Extra" caught up with Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his partner Brandy, and the pro dancer tells us that Brandy is taking charge! "She's treating me like a stubborn baby and she's a kindergarten teacher," he joked.

Maks' season 10 partner Erin Andrews had some words of advice for Brandy. "Do bring him coffee 'cause that gets him off on a good note."
