Dancing with the Stars Cast

Brandy must be a really good actress.

Her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy tells us she's hurting, but we certainly couldn't tell she was in pain during last night's Dancing With the Stars.

So then what's up? Find out what else Maks told us in this week's installment of our exclusive post-performance chat...

How'd you think last night went? You did really well.
I thought it was great. I thought it was all about her.

What was with all the nakedness? You had your shirt open, Mark Ballas was shirtless and even Mark's father Corky was totally naked.
Corky and Florence [Henderson] are having a lot of fun—just maybe a little too much for comfort for some people.

What did you think of their dance? Did they go too far? Carrie Ann said it made her uncomfortable.
I went to dinner afterwards with some friends and we were talking about it. I liked it. I thought they were having fun. What a sweet lady, and she has spunk! But some people at dinner said it made them uncomfortable. I guess it's a matter of opinion.

Brandy said in your video package that she hasn't been with a man in six years. What kind of guy do you think is good for her?
Oh, man. Somebody sweet, somebody romantic. I think she needs somebody strong and very polite and very gentleman-like.

OK, the "date" you went on—did it feel as corny as it looked?
We had fun. We had just been rehearsing and we were exhausted and her leg hurt. But we thought it would be fun. It turned out pretty good. We ended up just sitting and chatting…But I definitely know how to present flowers to a woman [Laughs]. I am a big romantic. I am very suave. The comedy there was cute, but that was not me.

What's wrong with Brandy's leg?
Her quads are very sore and her ankle is bothering her. So we're trying to pace ourselves...Unfortunately, there's only so much our bodies allow us to do and her ankle is hurting. She doesn't want to address it on the show because she doesn't want it to seem like she's crying about it.
