Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy admit unconditional love on the “Dancing with the Stars: All Stars” finale, airing Tuesday evening, November 27 on ABC, even though their heated chemistry only led them to third place in the finals.
There is no doubt Kelly and Val heated up the dance floor, but speculation and rumors flew like the show’s confetti about a possible budding romance all season long. Was there more to the “Dancing with the Stars” sexy duo than just the fancy footwork of chemistry required to make a picture perfect partnership?
During “Dance Center’s” recap of the season, Kenny Mayne, Jerry Rice and Len Goodman provided Kelly and Val relationship play-by-play with jokester Mayne surmising, “they did” after his in depth summary of “did they or didn’t they?”
Even “DWTS” judge Carrie Ann Inaba commented on the couple’s chemistry during the season finale’s first night of the dance off after judging the pair’s Paso Doble, throwing more fuel on the heated love fire.
However, “Dancing with the Stars” Season 1 winner, Kelly Monaco, 36, set the record straight tonight after co-host Brooke Burke pressed the issue following the instant dance.
The two of you have had an amazing connection all season long…what’s going on with the two of you? Because, from the way that we see it, its on.
Standing beside her ‘DWTS: All Star” partner, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, 26, little brother of Maksim, Kelly responded to the relationship rumors.
Listen, I hope everybody can have friendships like this. I mean, this is what it is. It is a foundation of an amazing friendship. I know you are laughing, but it’s true, it’s starts from scratch.
Val added to Kelly’s response, although he didn’t deny the possibility of a future romance either.
Yeh-it is unconditional love for one another, whatever that label is, it doesn’t have to be a boyfriend and girlfriend, it’s a relationship that I cherish, and she could rely on me and I know I can rely on her.
Yes, Kelly Monaco and Valentin Chmerkovskiy may have only came in third place during “DWTS All Stars” finale, but they admitted unconditional love for each other live on the air, unconditional love of two friends.
