Fixed Val Chmerkovskiy DissVal Chmerkovskiy is still facing backlash for his diss aimed at Derek Hough and Nastia Liukin during a pre-taped segment on Dancing With The Stars Tuesday. Chmerkovskiy said that his DWTS co-stars are “so perfect that it makes them a bit uninteresting.” But understandably, the jab didn't sit well with Hough, who told Glamour in an interview that he confronted his fellow dancer about the hurtful comment. “I heard him and I went up to him afterwards and was like, ‘Thanks. Classy, bro. Classy.'" To save face, Chmerkovskiy tweeted on Tuesday that he had explained his remark to Liukin and Hough in person. But to go the extra mile, Val apologized to the dancing duo in a series of tweets on Wednesday, saying, “OK look I just have to address this because I gotta get it off my chest. Even if I don’t have to I want to. My comment last night was taken out of context,” wrote Chmerkovskiy, adding, “And furthermore is very far from the truth. Everyone works extremely hard to be ‘perfect’ and I would never take that away from them. I have nothing but the utmost respect for them as a couple, him as a teacher, and her as a person… and btw they know that.” Liukin and Hough were officially booted from the hit ABC show Tuesday night. Rumer Willis and Chmerkovskiy, Riker Lynch and Allison Holker, and Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess are the last men standing. Fixers, ho do you think should win the Mirror Ball Trophy this season?
