Awkward? Amber Rose was practicing with her ‘Dancing With The Stars’ partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, when he threw out a Kanye West joke that could have been taken the wrong way. Check out the clip to see what Maks said about Amber’s ex, and how she reacted, after the jump!
“This is weird,” Amber Rose, 32, said in a clip of a rehearsal session with her Dancing With The Stars partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 36. “What’s weird?” Maksim responded. “That I look stupid,” she replied. “Just to give you some boost of confidence, you know what’s happening in the back? I am,” he said, to which she burst out laughing. “Maks is the perfect partner for me,” the model then said in a voice over during the clip. “He has a very strong personality, but he’s very soft and gooey on the inside.”
The clip then cuts back to a scene of the two practicing together, during which Amber says to the dancer, “You’re misunderstood, just like me.” “Everybody has a Kanye [West] moment once in a while,” he jokes with her. “I don’t,” she responded smiling. “I have a few,” he said back. OMG. We so love their banter! And way to make a light-hearted, though awkward, Kanye joke that his ex could actually take in stride.
Amber is really looking forward to this season of DWTS, and her practices have reportedly been “complete fire.” But we know she has some stiff competition in the way of those who may have a little more experience with choreography, like Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas, 16. Though we’ll see what happens when the show premieres on Sept. 12! And as the season continues, we’re excited to see more fun chemistry develop between Maks and Amber.
