You know, if someone’s going to read our boards and get their stories from it, perhaps they should get the pro partner correct. :-) Just kidding. I think. Not really sure what to make of this, since they got the pro so, so wrong. You know, we’ve been saying there was some cheating going on for a while, thanks to Vogue’s eagle eye…but still. For those new to this site, Vogue reported to me a long time ago (December, as a matter of fact) that she saw a picture of Sherri and Val go up at Dance With Me website; as soon as she saw it, it was taken down. Suspicious behavior, in our opinion. We’ve been talking about it ever since. So, now someone is telling Radar Online the same story, only the pro is wrong. From Radar Online:
Dancing with the Stars is supposed to be a competition where everyone trains for the same amount of time with their partners, but there is a shocking cheating scandal that RadarOnline.com has exclusively uncovered — Sherri Shepherd has been bending the rules before the show has even started!
The celebrities are officially paired up with their partners for the first time on the day the announcement of who will be dancing with who is made, and then given a few weeks to prep for their dance floor debut, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that The View co-host has been practicing with her partner, Makism Chmerkovskiy, since December!

“Sherri was spotted in early December going into the Soho Studio and Maks was there too,” an eyewitness revealed.
“She had her dance shoes with her and was dressed in workout gear. I saw them dancing together.”
It’s entirely possible that the “show insider” reads this site as well. Or is it all just TRUE and it’s now coming out?? You be the judge.
ETA: I’ve seen lots of people discrediting the story on twitter simply because Radar got the Professional wrong – but people come on. They’re brothers. Same last name. How easy would it be to type Maks instead of Val? My mom calls me by my brother’s name all the time. It happens. :-)
ETA 2: Sherri’s side of the story. Interesting.
