‘Dancing with the Stars’: Peta Murgatroyd talks Maksim Chmerkovskiy rumors

There has been talk for weeks.

Mrs. Carter: Is there more romance blooming in the “Dancing with the Stars” ballroom?

Over the past few weeks, the rumor mill has run rampant with talk that reigning champ Peta Murgatroyd is now taking her relationship with Maksim Chmerkovskiy to the next level — but in the midst of a lengthy victory celebration that has spanned most of the United States, Donald Driver’s partner has finally spoken out on the subject.

While at the Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas this weekend, Peta (per Radar Online) made the following comment when it comes to how she and Maks really get along:

“We’re very good friends … He’s awesome. We hang out, we go to dinner.”

Could there be something more here? It’s possible, but for now it’s better to take Peta at her word. Maks has a past history of dating “Dancing” pros, having even been engaged at one point to Karina Smirnoff before things ultimately fell apart.

It’s still to be seen if either Maks or Peta will be a part of the “All-Star” season in the fall, though the reigning champ is at a disadvantage in that the show isn’t planning to include past winners as a part of the cast.

Do you think these two pros could be a good couple down the road?
