Maksim is leaving the ballroom. Read on for all the details!
“What else do I have to do there after 15 seasons?” Maksim tells the New York Post. “It makes total sense. The audience can’t expect for me to want to stick around, and the producers can’t expect for me to want to stick around.”
Maks plans to pursue an acting career and possibly a reality show with his brother Val after the current DWTS season, All-Stars, comes to a close.
“I loved doing it. But to be honest with you, at 32, I am at what-about-me time.”
“I am not thinking that with me leaving, the show will go off the air or anything,” he adds. “Like my dad said, ‘There are no irreplacable people.’ I wish them the next 50 years of success. But I have to do something else. I need to move on for me.“
We certainly will miss him! How do YOU feel, HollywoodLifers?
