No Dancing drama

Murder on the dance floor or renegade rumor? Derek Hough says that rumors he is feuding with fellow Dancing with the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy are just that: rumors.

While rehearsing with his partner Ricki Lake on Friday, Hough told Access Hollywood, "Our relationship is pretty similar to how it's always been."

"We've known each other for many, many years. This is a television show and I understand that people want to see drama where there's not."

"We were out last night with each other and had a good time. Hate to disappoint."

What got this rumor started? Derek Hough's own reaction to a comment Maksim Chmerkovskiy made calling Dancing with the Stars "his show."

"I had a laugh about that [comment]," Derek later told US Weekly. "I was looking at the plaque upstairs and… well, never mind."

Sources also said that Chmerkovskiy was still smarting from a romantic snub by Derek's sister Julianne Hough, who instead chose to cozy up with Ryan Seacrest.

Sounds like this is one rumor that can exit the ballroom.

Dancing with the Stars returns tonight at 8/7 C on ABC.
