Sarah Palin Controversy: Here's What Really Happened, Says DWTS' Maksim

DWTS, Brandy, Maksim Chmerkovskiy ABC/ADAM LARKEY

Last night's Dancing With the Stars was chock full of controversy.

Sarah Palin may have been booed, Brandy seemed to throw her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy under the bus when Len pooh-poohed her solo and Bruno might as well have kicked Michael Bolton in the mirror balls.

What the heck was going on? Get some answers in my weekly post-performance chat with Maks...

Do you and Brandy fight as much as it looked like last night in your video?
I don't know how to say it so that people understand it, so I'm just going to say it the way it is: Brandy's probably going to be my best friend after the show is over and that's a true fact. Brandy's a sweetheart. She's everything that a real person is. I've been hearing a lot of comments saying she's a diva. She's not a diva at all. While I'm flattered that people came to my protection, I really need to make sure people understand there's nothing to protect because she didn't try to hurt me....We are amazing friends. We are!

Do you think Bruno was too harsh on Michael Bolton? He said it was the worst jive he had ever seen on all of Dancing With the Stars.
Bruno was on fire last night. I thought The Situation's dance was the worst yesterday but that's just my humble opinion. But it's a matter of opinion and I get it. Having said that, I think Brandy and I could have done better. We should have done better. We did better in dress rehearsal.

Was Sarah Palin really booed?
We've been booing for the last eleven seasons. This is the eleventh season of booing at judges' comments and this time Sarah Palin happens to be sitting in the audience and people are saying, "Oh, the booing must be for her." Who were they booing at before? I don't think people were booing because of Sarah Palin. Also, if somebody is going to pick on the fact that she didn't stand up when her daughter danced, it's because this is the section where you can't stand up because there's a big camera behind you. They tell you not to stand up.
