With only hours to go until the final dance-off on Dancing With the Stars, hunky dance pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy, partner of finalist Mel B, says he thinks that Marie Osmond‘s revelation that her 16-year-old son Michael entered rehab was a calculated decision to make the finals.
“Frankly, I think there were a lot of other people better than Marie,” Maksim tells TV’s Extra. “I know firsthand there are a lot of celebrities on the show that went through similar situations [family issues] this season and decided not to make it public.”
Meanwhile, Marie tells Extra that Michael will be there for the finale. “All my children will be there,” she says.
