Former Dancing Contestant: Bring on the Same-Sex Partners!

If it can happen in Israel, it could certainly happen here in the U.S.

Just last week, Maksim Chermovskiy told us he wouldn't mind seeing same-sex partners on Dancing With the Stars. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba also thinks it's time.

And guess who just told he's all for it, too?

"I would love to see same-sex dancing," our pal Gilles Marini said last night at the premiere of Disney's new animated Rapunzel musical movie, Tangled. "I've seen it. It's pretty intense."

He added, "For guys, two girls dancing? Hello! And two guys dancing" I'm sure a lot of people would like to see that, too."

Marini, who came in second place when he competed in DWTS' eighth season, also thinks it may be time for a change in the voting process because of Bristol Palin. "I'm sure the Republicans are out there saying vote for her because that is good publicity for us," he said. "They don't care if she can dance.

"They should do 75 percent of the vote from the judges and 25 percent from the viewers.  Right now, it could become a farce. I don't want the show to be a farce."
