Maks is back.
After sitting out of last week's performance due to "personal issues," professional dancers Maksim Chmerkovskiy returned to Dancing With the Stars on Monday night to dance with Vanessa Lachey, despite reports of tension between the couple. And yes, there were tears from both Maks and Vanessa, but not because of any DWTS drama.
For Monday's episode, Maks and Vanessa reunited to perform during one of the series' most emotional nights, "Most Memorable Year." Vanessa chose 2017, after giving birth at only 29 weeks to her third child, Phoenix Robert, with husband Nick Lachey in December 2016.
