Peta Murgatroyd Addresses Drama Between Husband Maksim Chmerkovskiy & Vanessa Lachey on DWTS

Peta Murgatroyd opened up in a brand new blog for People about husband Maksim Chmerkovskiy and celeb partner Vanessa Lachey‘s drama on Dancing With The Stars.

While sources say that the duo — called Team BabiesandBallroom — had a chemistry issue, Peta attributes it all to stress.

“…Working on DWTS is not an easy job,” Peta wrote. “A lot was made of the fact that Maks missed last week’s show, and I have to say I think very few people know how crazy this show really gets — not only physically on your body but mentally as well.”

She continues, “We care about our partners and that’s what makes it so hard sometime because you care and love each other and you want them to do so well. You invest so much time-wise and you just want them to be the best and get the best results possible at the end of the day on the Monday night.”

“But it is difficult to deal with life, stresses, rehearsals and then show time and everything that goes along with that. This show is extremely stressful, but at the end of the day when you get those scores and your partner did well — like Vanessa has been doing week after week — then it’s all worth it. It does get difficult some times, though,” she added.

Last week, Maksim took the night off and Alan Bersten stepped in to perform with Vanessa. He will be back in the ballroom tonight.

Dancing with the Stars airs tonight at 8pm ET on ABC.
