DWTS 2011 Hope Solo Speaks Out On New Rumors And Her Dancing With The Stars Transformation

Below are some last minute words from Hope Solo before the show. She tells People she doesn’t think there are any hard feelings with Len after Maks had words with him last week. Maks is the only one who has seen her struggles and no one else on the show.

“He’s the only person who has seen my struggles – not the producers, not anybody else – and it’s been a transformation,” Solo tells PEOPLE.

“To put somebody down when they haven’t even recognized how far they’ve come, I think Maks wasn’t okay with that. And he’s a true teammate and he stood up for me and I appreciated it.”

After Len Goodman criticized Solo’s rumba as her “worst dance of the season,” Chmerkovskiy had a heated exchange with the judge.

“I don’t think there are any hard feelings,” Solo said of the controversy. “All the drama makes for good TV.”
