    Dancing's Maksim: "I Almost Crapped Myself!"

    BRANDY, MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY ABC/ADAM LARKEY

    We'll get to the dancing in a minute.

    The real story from last night's rock n' roll-themed Dancing With the Stars was in Maksim Chmerkovskiy's pants! The skin-tight  pleather pants he wore during his tango with Brandy left little to the imagination.

    Read on for the this week's installment of our weekly post-performance chat with Mr. Maks. We talk his big thighs, Brandy's tears and why he almost "crapped" his pants...

    RELATED: What's Making Brandy Cry?

    First of all, what was up with those leather pants? Were they hard to dance in?
    It was the most uncomfortable I've ever been in my entire life I think, because there's no breathing. It's obviously pleather and it was not a pleasant experience. Lets just say that my thighs and above are a little bigger than your average rocker's so I guess the tight leather pants are just not for me. It's safe to assume it's not going to happen again.

    Brandy was very emotional this week. Is she going to have a nervous breakdown by the end of the season?
    She's not a weak person. She's a very strong person and she just expresses certain things her own way. It's a hard show and a lot goes into it, and girls—I guess that's what they do. Girls cry. It pains me to see her cry, and I try to be supportive, but it's very, very difficult when I'm the only one trying to make her do stuff.

    I saw Melanie Griffith in the audience. Have you met her or know anything about her being on the show?
    Jamie Lee Curtis a big fan of the show and she's been coming every week. Yesterday, she calls me over and says, "Hey, I have somebody for you to meet." I'm not going to lie, I almost crapped myself and had a heart attack at the same time. To introduce me to Melanie Griffith, I know exactly who she is. We had Martha Stewart there yesterday. She wants to be on the show. She's been talking to Erin [Andrews]. It just feels like everybody wants to be on the show. (FYI: Stewart told E!'s own Ryan Seacrest on his radio show this morning she would need a year to prepare for DWTS)

    How tired were you and Brandy doing the rock marathon right after doing your tango?
    I'm not going to lie to you, [it] cost me probably a liver and a kidney and a lung because this thing was just never ending. They did not make it simple, did they? I'm going to start a petition for next season to do a rumba marathon. Jesus! It was exhausting. We were tired. Where she pulled out the energy to finish, I don't know.
