Maksim Chmerkovskiy & Len Goodman Kiss & Make Up – Literally!

By Radar Staff

Dancing with the Stars pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy and head judge Len Goodman have mended fences — with a kiss — after an uncomfortable exchange two weeks ago.

On the show’s October 24 broadcast, Chmerkovskiy, 31, told the 67-year-old judge, “Maybe it’s time to get out” of the ballroom business after a harsh critique of his partner, soccer stunner Hope Solo. Chmerkovskiy held his ground on a subsequent interview with Good Morning America, refusing to apologize to Goodman.

Solo performed two dances on Monday’s episode — a 27-point quickstep followed by a 25-point jive Goodman called fantastic.

“It was everything a jive should be! It was brilliant!” Goodman said, prompting Chmerkovskiy to walk up to the panel and give him a smooch on the cheek. He and Solo scored a solid 52 overall points on the evening.

“Thank you Len!” Chmerkovskiy said during the post-dance Q&A.
