Brandy and her partner on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Maksim Chmerkovskiy hung out with TV Guide’s Hollywood 411 after advancing to the semi-finals on the ABC show. The duo talk about ‘DWTS’, drama with Carrie Ann Inaba, bootie shake competitions and Kurt Warner’s exit. “He is a great guy, gentleman, family man,” Brandy said about Kurt. “He played football with Max every week, so Kurt and I bonded. We were on the same team, as far as Team Apolo goes, and he’s a great guy. I was just sad to see him go.” Video at YouTube has since been removed.
