Denise Richards is paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy for Dancing with the Stars season 8. Denise has been in so many movies. She’s got a lot of name recognition from that which will help her be successful on DWTS. Looking at the list of movies though, I don’t see any huge blockbusters that make her an epic star.

Denise is beautiful and will look nice next to Mad Maks. I expect her to have smooth lines and move around the stage really well. Maks will do a great job getting the most out of her and stretch her to do things that surprise even her.

Maks has some of the most devoted fans on the show. The ones who will vote 50150 times and spend the evening convincing their aunts, uncles, grandma, sisters, brothers, etc to vote for Maks as well. Plus, Maks’ choreography is a fan favorite as well. Makes sense why they chose him to choreograph the Dancing with the Stars tour.

Denise and Maks will be a nice pair with a reasonable shot at making the top 3. Maks making the top 3 and Karina not will make for an interesting dynamic for their relationship.
